Default Tortilla flat

Got the track mate timing system up and running.Thank's Tom, a whole new racing experience. Must have put 2500 laps down so far running the voltage at 10 good laps are ranging from 8.920 to 9.18 ran some laps at 12 volts but lap times were inconsistant the cars like the leave the track surface on the back straight,so i'm thinking 10 volts will be the norm alot closer racing. Have tru-grips on all the cars except the nsr's which have ultra grips, the tru-grips seem to be the hot ticket cleaned with simple green ran 300 laps still had lots of corner speed. The ultra grips seem to load up had to clean 2 or 3 times during 300 laps. Will be doing some racing this weekend will try to get some video. Tim

Can't get enough of those pics Tim...but video will be better

IMHO , adding a timing system definitely adds a new dimension for tuning and driving style

I think your better half will come to hate the timing system tho......"just one more lap honey"

Cheers,eh!

Great looking track! I really like the way you were able to use the elevated track. I am thinking of doing the same thing since I have some space constraints on the width. I was concerned that it might be to claustrophobic but the way you spaced out the height difference looks superb. Any photos of the build or more of the existing track?

Do you let other Hoosiers visit your track? Are you going to the show in Hammond? Ken

Ken, you are more than welcome to come by a race any time, i have a couple buddies that have gotten into slot's we try to get together every other saturday for some informal racing. Dean if your out there give me a call I know you have been wanting to come by and race. Maybe we come set something to all get together, the preferred tires are ureathane certian rubber tires work but seem to load up after some laps.All in all the track is very fun to drive the timing system and light's really add to the experience. Greg. P and Puklry thank's for the comments the elevation change is about 18". Tim

deslot, (I can see the pics now) what a great track!
Can you tell me what the overall dimensions of the track are? It's got some elements which are very similar to a design I have for my next track.
Cheers,
Dick
