Thanks Max, I have actually been running my F-1 car on it. I can just see a couple of VRAA cars doing battle around it.

Here are a few more photos of my track. Actually race ready, I believe we could have a Club race on it, probably should have a "rubbering in" party first. I have ran quite a few laps but I am sure more would be better. There is one section that may have to be changed a little as it is very tight for two cars. Nice photo of the wall, this site is the most difficult I have ever seen.

Sweet Bill!!

Can't wait to get back there and turn a few laps!! Maybe a double-header with Son of Red Hill???

And given the tight-ness, I would suggest 10 Volts Max for normal events - and 8-9 for open wheel - just a thought as I look at those Ceeee-ment walls!!

Looks like a fun track. It sure would be nice if it was easier to post pictures,shouldn't have to be so involved. Are you building drivers stations? Keep putting the rubber down.

Thanks guys Steve, yeah a double header would be great. That is the voltages Iam running, 10 for all the classes and 9 for Open Wheel but 8 might be better an early F-1 does look great running around it. Don, I am bringing the camera next Wed. to show you some photos, this site is the most difficult to do any thing on of all the sites I visit. BillBoy, it is fun and I do have drivers stations if only the photos would load. Rubber Down

I would Steve, but this site is so difficult(for me anyway) to post photos on I usually FAIL when I try. You guys will just have to come race on it to see it.

I have looked at that FAQs and tried to follow the directions, alas No Joy. I am on quite a few different Slot sites and this one which is my favorite is the most difficult to do anything on. I have to log on every time I try to get on the site, and some times it wont even let me reply to a post ???? Crazy, I thought it might be my computer but I even changed computers a few months back same story.

Hey Bill,

This forum is from the 90's, it's out of date

Whoa you better watch it Don, you will earn that title under your screen name. Miss my weekly trips to Sidewinder, you know how life always gets in the way. I was just starting to feel as though I was finally getting a handle on the tracks. See you soon.

Actually not hard to post images here.
