Hi guys
here are some pics of my new Carrera 4 lane I just finished. It is 18 meters long on a 6.30 meters by 3 m table. Power is 3-15 Volt 10 Amp.
Thanks to the forum and to all of you for helping much.
Best Regards
Edo (from the Italian side of Switzerland)

Thanks guys!
I used Carrera's software to design the track. I had to borrow a PC (I am on Mac) and download the program from their web site. The design is inspired by what I remember was the commercial track I use to race on in the 60's, give and take a few modifications and different lenght.
Today and tomorrow well' be finishing the electrical part with my friend who is an electronic engineer, his girlfriend has just finished about another 50 hay bales and my 12 years old nephew
is helping me tune up those (Fly) cars (and others) taking off magnets etc etc. So far the Slot.it's and the Scalex GT40 are the better cars out of the box. I will post comments about how the different cars behave on the track and how the track itself is driveable.
Best regards
Edo

Ciao Thomas
let me rehearse and find the proper set up for my cars and THEN I might consider throwing myself into the German lion's pit

Are you and Swiss (Allan W.) going to the Verbano 24 h next week?
I will go and take a look and it would be nice to meet you there.
Best

Hi Thomas
my track is in Viganello not far from Cadro. I will call you tomorrow so if you have time we could run up a few laps on my track

About motorcycles:I just took my Ducati to the mechanic: I had a little accident, nothing serious except for my insurance : 4300 francs of damage mostly cosmetic!!!

Hi Swiss
if I can make a suggestion: when you go to Reggio Emilia (visiting Slot.it ?
you might consider going with the train, which is something me and my wife do when we go to Bologna, between the Gotthard (which you have to cross) and that awful autostrada full of trucks it is worth it!
I will not race the Verbano 24h I just will go and take a look underneath the cars to see what they got (if they let me)

All the best
Edo
As VOA (and me) found out a couple of hours ago how come sometime the pics come out as a red x?
