Looks great Besides changing the radius of the corner closest to the camera have you increased the lane spacing over the Scalextric Sport?

Plastic is now extinct at SMR.
Long live wood!

Thanks guys. Lane spacing is 3.25" vs 3" for Sport. Table with McMagnuts crafted extension will be 8' x 14'. The dreaded Smokeio Squeeze has been reborn in the esses on the overpass. This will be the most challenging part of the track as the rest looks like it could be very fast. Time will tell. Lane length should be increased a bit versus the previous 52'. Overpass support to hopefully be designed and built in a week with braiding party to follow.

Hey Lumpy. You built a track? Something doesn't look right. You are missing a part of the track. Where is the braid ? Why did you use that cheap paint? Did you use a primer? How many drops you using? Can I run my trucks? Why did you cut out sections like that, you could have used just the 4x8 MDF. Why are you overhanging the table? That squeeze is too tight, no one will ever make it around. What's the lane length? I liked the old plastic track......

Of course, you are refering to the.......slow.......cars you Shoreliners race, right?

That wood track looks awesome. Can't wait to get a chance to race on it...though I doubt you'll let me in the door after what I just said above...
