Well, you know why - he never was much of a driver...........

Great-looking track, Wayne, I hope you enjoy running it.

Looks like it would handle 12 Volts nicely too........

You are such a turd. We should have designed the entire track the way you wanted it. And if we did that, you'd still be looking at a blank piece of paper and racing on that lumpy plastic track.


Bob, we are going to hold an NEC race there soon (maybe January) so be ready.

Dennis, when are you coming back to visit? I have a few nerfs saved up for you....

Mike,

I would love to trade paint with you guys again some time, but right now there are no plans for travel to the East I'm afraid.

But you can be sure when next I'm in CT you will know about it.

Default DawgMan's MDF beagle poop raceway

Dawg's track is looking good. I have seen it in person a couple of times and it will be a flowing track. Dawg and Smoke have done a fine job and more impressive is that they have all their fingers intact. The club would like to race before Thanksgiving.............draft some helper bees!!
Dr. Dee, Bubba , Racing Ron and PPR are prime candidates. Mcmannix

I just finished braiding another lane (all by myself as Lumpy watched the Yankees). A big thumbs up to Steve and Dickie with this tape and braid as I am impressed with how easy it is. I did approximately 50 feet in about an hour. I would highly recommend this product in place of copper tape!

Smokeio, Just think if Dawg was laying braid and not watching baseball you would be installing 60 feet per hour. Henry Ford would not be happy...................Mcmannix

Mike can tape/braid 50' of track per hour.

Wayne can tape/braid 10' of track per hour but Mike has to completely rework it so Wayne's net productivity is zero. Sort of like matter and anti-matter...

Mike braiding by himself will eventually get the other lanes completed.

Wayne "helping" Mike yields no additional progress - in fact, it cuts Mike's productivity because of the rework.

Mike did the right thing by letting Wayne watch the Yankees...

Q.E.D.

Default So if....

Mike can lay tape/braid at 50 feet/hour and,

Wayne can lay tape/braid at 10 feet/hour but mike has to re-work it...

When will the Chicago Bears regret the quarterback swap with the Denver Bronco's?

Default more input

Some excellent observations but I have a hunch that if Dawg went to Smokeio's basement and ran some laps on Smokeio's track and Smokeio stayed and braided on Dawgs "Beagle Poop" raceway, Smokeio productivity would net 70 feet per hour...........................tee hee. Mcmannix
