I was able to work a little more on the track this weekend and I got my pit area started. Because of the limited space on my layout I had to get a little creative on a entry and exit point. I used 1" strip of basswood for the main pit wall and I used balsa strips around the entry and exit so it would bend for the curves. I still need to paint the walls and I am debating on routing grooves for each lane.

Looks great!

That MG certainly needs to come in for a new tail


If I were you I'd route just one groove. The cars would still be flush but it wouldn't be as much work.

Thanks!

The MG's tail was recently glued on but a buddy had came over one night and had a couple drinks, she lost her tail again on the first corner. They do look a bit strange without them.

Routing just the one groove is a great idea. Its non functional anyway. I was thinking possibly of doing a single in and single out lane and joining with 2 in the center. It might be too much work though.

It must be a general problem for the Green MG. Mine lost the tail less than half an hour after i opened the box.


Cool track

Or maybe it's because you race them with the magnet in the car.
This allow the car to o faster, but when it comes off . . . . BANG - something is bound to be broken!
Without the magnet you have to drive the car and then the risc of breaking something is less!!

Very neat solution Lee.....Looking at the plans for my layout, (if it ever gets built!), it looks like I would have to use a similar solution, re exit on bend.

Look forward to the next chapter.

Regards

Alan

I would of thought you would have included a Lister Storm in the picture, not an MG. After all it is "Lister Park Raceway"
