Tie-Breaker Format: TBD

Track Name: the as seen on TV ronco super porta-track 2000
Track: 2x4 sheet of 1/2 inch MDF
Track Surface: Flat latex with copper tape
Track layout: totally flat, probably a kidneybean-ish shape. if all goes well, it will have good flow and chi. all turns will be wide enough and slots will be deep enough to accomodate large guides.
Power: the as seen on TV ronco super porta-track 2000 comes standard with a 9v 0.5a wall wart, but the race will be run on my pyramid 9v and 5a
Driver's Station: yes. how do you hook up a controller without one?
Controller: difalco with 30 bands of pure slot-tastic goodness
Lap Counting/Timing software: trakmate with deadstrips

Race Format: 5 lap qualifying. 3 minute race. most laps wins. Tires will be cleaned before qualifying and racing.

Tie-Breaker Format: the car with the fastest single lap wins. if there is still a tie, the fastest median lap wins. if there is still a tie, the cars will be subject to a 5 lap winner takes all grudge match on my big track.
