Great idea, but we've talked about it before. Not that we can't talk about it again, by all means.

Previous idea was to use a bog standard Scalextric Top Gear set - simple and compact. The only problem was that it has a lap counter that is accurate to 1/10th of a second and not to 1/100th of a second. This may not appear to be important, but when testing high performance slot cars, after a while it is important.

Anyway, we didn't move on from this. I found the track layout to be a little too small and would like to see a design at least twice as big. If anyone is keen on this, we can put up a standard track-plan and publish rankings for the track for different cars.

Keep the ideas coming.

QUOTE (MrFlippant @ 5 May 2012, 16:13) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Thanks, guys. I used iMovie 06 (still) as it has the ability to edit frame by frame. All the sound in this video was included with the software. Oddly enough, though, apparently one of the songs has either lost it's free-ness, or the copyright owner is being a douche, because it triggered a copyright notice on YouTube. It's not a mistake, but it sucks that was once license free is now not. At least they didn't block the video or audio because of it.
Yeah, that is a pain. You'll find the video is not available in Germany or something like that. And the obligatory ad pops up a few seconds in.

Great video and presentation.
