Bleep I am not sure what you mean. Did I do something wrong when taking the pic? It was possible as I was admiring the scenery.

Hi Ian,

Very steep indeed, but I think a lot of fun to drive with the rally-raid cars.

Keep those pictures coming.

Nice work, Ian.


I have come to the conclusion that the Raid vehicles are excellent fun, (I think I will soon be getting more myself, my Schlesser is still on order, but no news as yet!) and your hill looks a suitable challenge for them!

I'll check it out next time I venture out there tell you if it is a Mercury '56' or not. Your tracks looking great too another one I'm following.

Hi Ian

that is a very nice picture,the one with the hotrods 'smoking/burning rubber' love the light also in the diner

looks very natural not that unnatural white light bulb light [or is it lamp?] where did you get the figures standing around the cars?
they look nice,different! and how do you let the light burn on the Hotrods in the picture?
i have the yellow one now,and i noticed it has great light!
like you can see very well in your Pictures,whats the Diners name Mc Bleep or Bleep King ?


cheers

Jaak,
Sorry about the late reply one month later
the figures around the cars are Homies from ebay.com.

The track is digital so the lights are always on with or without throttle the parking places are wired too so the have lights on.

Name of the Diner is of course "Road Runners Drive In"

Hi Bleep

no problem for the late reply
am glad you did

about the lights on the cars ? i do have digital but don't have lights on any of my digital cars

but if i chip my hotrod and put it on the track the light will keep burning?
at least thats is what i am guessing after your reply

[sorry for the maybe stuppid question]

I wouldn't recommend it though, the motor will have ac power going to it which can't be doing it any good
If you want to leave it as a pernament stationary car with lights, without chipping, just disconnect the motor.

Just checked the Blog, its coming along nicely Ian, starting to look the part

One year after work started today this track was officially opened yes my mystery guest is no longer a mystery "Zipp" did the Official opening as he was the first person to invite me to his track it only seemed fair that he was the first to visit mine! Though the track is far from completion it is working with just a few very minor technical points ironed out today the track itself is running as it was designed to do. We added the MS Mod so power is not a problem no matter how many cars are using.
I want to thank Kev for coming over through some absolutely atrocious conditions. I learnt loads from just talking and discussing setups, methods that we do differently we have totally different driving styles and setups and style of car in which we choose to race. I now have lots of thoughts on what cars I need to purchase in the future. (Just spent an hour or so scouring my favorite Slot shop Guess i'll have to wait for releveries as they seem to be sold out of the cars you brought over
) As you all know Kev is a stickler for keeping his track clean even though mine was running well he proved just how dreadfully dirty the rails had become in just a few weeks&#8230;.Again the whole day seemed to vanish in what seemed like just a few minutes and it was all over, but hey there will be a next time.

Thanks again Kev you know you are always welcome.
