started my track in my loft over the last couple of days youll get a better idea of the track once i can find my camcorder
corner at the end of the start/finish straight

infield section

tools,im not one to buy tools as i have too many(my mrs thinks) however this is the best £160 ive spent in a long time the circular saw is great for trimming the track although it is 12v it cut 3 sheets of mdf(4 cuts on each sheet) and still had some battery left.you cant change the speed on the screw driver although you can feather it on the throttle lol and the recip saw is handy for those hard to reach places

the return from the infield

and finally the small bit of routing i did sadly had to stop due to the time

i would have got a lot more done if i lived in the middle of a field
has anyone got any tips on lane painting? i painted all the lanes on my last track with different colours and it took days i was debating whether to just not paint them and just make sure people remember what lane there on?

Coming on well, looking good.
Every track should have a name, I suggest the "DadIsItDustyUpThere Raceway"....

i was advised to use infa red lap timing bits but i couldnt get my head around wiring it all up so i found these

so ive routed and got them fixed on the underside of the track



and i decided it was time to paint and prepare for the copper tape,im still not sure whether im putting curbs in or not

i decided not to fill the joints at the moment but i will fill them with tar too give it more of a patched look

Nice work. What kind of router did you use? Anything special that you would do again? I have to buy one in preparing for my track build.
