Hello.. Slot Car Guys..
Great Site..New guy.....Havent played with 1/24 slots in 40 years... lol... just built first routed 4 lane oval..crazy one like Luf's bullring.. and love east coast mods...
I build hot rod woodies as a biz along with my graphic arts..many of the hotrods I built made mag covers and street rod of the year awards..even Hot wheels made 4 versions of cars I built..
looking for new friends in the Cincinnati area who love oval racing...
The track was mainly just a test for the larger one I planning on building..kind of crazy for the first track build but wanted to try it...it was a blast to make and didnt take long a all.. still need to get the walls mounted and lighting and all the fun stuff..
it is a 4 lane that loops 3 times so you have a different groove each lap and really need to watch yourself on the crossings.. a challenge for sure.. makes the action interesting..
also wanted it to be portable so it can be taken to buddies shops for some hot rod benchracing..
the layout set up
gad.. 64 power taps...lol
looks like a copper tape track
cars in progress
maybe these old gilberts will get new homebrew chassis..for the kids to run.lol
still more to do on it.. but will be fun...Next up is a larger version.. of Islip speedway.. the track I grew up with..
