It runs!







Average length of each lane is 240 feet.

Backstraight is 33 feet long, front is 24.

All 4 lanes running excellent but #1 could
use a little more power.

I'll be working on bridges for weeks.......

It is a BLAST to race on.

You've let me down, Rev! I thought you wanted 250?


Only joking, the way your layout is going, you'll probably manage 250 in the near future...somehow. Might I suggest obtaining planning permission for a larger room ?

OK Rev I know your a man who likes a challenge ,What about Revel raceway 1000 you must have enough track there to do it in 2 lanes ,If you build it they will come to quote Kevin Costner ,do it and I'll send my Black Hole capri the current lap record holder at Preston over for you to proxy race on your track.

Going to try to get a 35mm camera w/ a wide angle lens
so I can get the whole thing in one picture.

It is such a long way around. My Fly Saleen is just about
worn out...... Ran 100 laps today.

How much?

The track, tables, power supply ($170), 5 Parma controllers, Professor
Motor controller ($170), 650 feet of 16 guage wire, and shelving brackets -
all of that - about $2000, maybe a little more. Started collecting Revell
track 14 years ago. Each piece of track was made between 1964 - 1966.

I wanted to build a track that I wouldn't get tired of soon. This one will
definitely take a while to learn.

This is when the track was 199' but it's still the same in this section.


It just kept growing........don't know how to explain it.....
This shot is from when it was 180.
