There's a 24"x96" area in the garage that's just collecting garbage, so I'm going to build a Hillclimb Rally track to give the guys something to do while waiting to race.
Got the space cleaned out...
...and the base built. It will start about 4" off the floor...
The Hillclimb will stack vertically...this will be the first tier and as long as it doesn't rain tomorrow, I'll get it routed (I do my routing outside). Then I'll mount it to the base, paint it, tape it and do some scenery. Then I'll add the next tier.
I have no idea what the next tier will look like yet, but I will try to keep decent sight lines. Also, I don't know how many tiers there will be, but it will rise to about eye level, with a reversing loop at the top.
It will be a single lane run against the clock, starting and ending where Brandi's head is. Dan at TrackMate is designing a timing system for this track. It will have 4 sectors plus a total time, should make for some interesting competition. TrackMate is also designing the reversing switch at the top.
Scenery will be a challenge, because the whole thing will only have a 2ft x 8ft footprint, and I'm hoping for at least a 20 second run.
