  • Zoom Beedo Designed Track @ Sling Shot Speedway

    Guys,

    It has started! The 130ft Zoom Beedo designed 4lane-soon-to-be-6lane box stock/no magnet only brand new Ninco track construction began last night. The entire track is layed out on a table approximately 35-40inches tall which is perfect height where the racer does not have to use a stool to get a good view of the track unlike the previous driver station of the big track. As of last night, the track still need the table skirts which are being installed as I type, the outer lane borders & rails, fencing, wiring, the incoming TrackMate system, and driver stations.

    We used a Ninco powered track with a wall-wart @ 14.8volts to test the layout, and all I have to say is it felt like Stuttgart all over again. The cars have sooooo much grip that the the outer edge of my Ascari's rear tires had little chunks missing! LOTS OF GRIP is an understatement and I'm sure it'll be no time until the track is broken in. I've forgotten what new Ninco track felt like and I'm glad we have access to this track here in Atlanta.

    Track rates are $10.00 /hr each lane during weekdays. Once lanes 5 & 6 (really 1 & 2) go up, discounted rates will be available for club racing for the entire track per hour.

    Estimated finish date is 2-3weeks, depending on when TrackMate timing system arrives.

      Glad to hear it's being finished, think I'll have to go by there this Saturday AM! Mark, do you know if it got built to the original plan? If so, I'll post a plan of the new track so all can see what it looks like.

        Jim,

        Track was pretty much built as planned. The only modification was that Lance replaced a whole straight with a half straight on 2 sections in the overpass area to give more room between the 400footer and the new track. This was also for driver station purposes.

          Thanks

          Just wanted to thank all of you for your input and help. Jim did a great job with all the time he spent on the layout - it fit perfect with that one slight modification. The price for all lanes (when the six are installed) will be $40 per hr for club racing only (weekdays). The other prices are $10 per hour weekdays (basically pay for 15 min and get 45 min free), $15 per hour weekends, or $2 for 3 min. All cars will be magnet marshalled to make sure they fall below a specified amount yet to be determined (we want to make sure this track stays smooth). I will be asking for some help when the trackmate arrives to make sure the wiring is correct. Again thanks for all your help!!

            Here are some under construction pics of the track. Still needs lanes 5 and 6 along with the bridge support built and remaining borders.

              That's a fantastic layout -- I could spend all day on that thing!

              Is there a track plan for this available somewhere?

              By God, it's time to move to Georgia...

                    The commute sucks!

                    Maybe I can swing something in the next few months. If the plane fares stay down, I might be able to make it.

                        OK, let's try this. I haven't done this for awhile. This is the six lane version.

                            Man, I miss Buddy! He's like having another dude to hang out with -- just one of the guys you can drink a beer with. Great dog.

                            Jim, thanks for posting that. I'd really like to build that in the basement, but in N-Digital with a couple multi-lane kits. Looks like a very fun track!

                              I'd commute too...

                              Cool!

                              Borders with no guardrails next to the track! I'm glad it has R1s too... a necessary evil if everyone is to compete with the world. Any chance of it growing to 8 lanes?
