Default Des Moines Area D132 on MDF

We have started running regular on Thursday nights. Find some video of the track on

Youtube -
Send me a PM if you want to come over! Bring your own D132 cars or we can rent you a car for the night.

We have been switching back and forth during the evening from road course to oval depending on what everyone wants to run.

Default Lots of new track and testing PS3 Edit Software

I took some video last Thursday and edited it with the PS3.

I will need to finish up a few manual flippers and the layout will allow four variations of the entire track! I just finished re-routing some of my squeeze sections, they were waaaayyyy to long and most drivers including myself would have trouble making more than about 3 laps without causing a wreck.

That's looking like quite the interesting layout, Jim. What different classes do you usually run on it?

Phil,

We run "mostly stock" Carrera NASCAR, slot.it Porsche, and American Classic Muscle cars.

We are waiting to see if the new hardware will let us count laps for the three lanes.

It has turned into a "Hey, look what I found, you guys need to get one so we can run them as a class!"

Each track tune-up has been a welcome change...

Jim
