Mate fantastic track :chainsaw:
Looks like a fun track to drive.
If it doesn`t have wheels and an engine it`s not sport!

Now that's a pretty impressive way to lurk! Primer on timing systems is here as a place to start.

Haha thanks,

I was reading that post the other day, makes it sound easy, but?????? I did buy some z1951 sensors yesterday and there is still about 9 there so i can get some if any one likes. i also bought a plug and some wire, but my question is how do i wire up the pit sensors, are they wired in series to the start line for the same lane or do they go to a different pin on the plug? if so do they count laps as they are passed or does every one lose one lap?

Jay that is a nice looking track you have built there. Maybe you you like a race night some time. Easy going informal social driving and a chance to show off your latest cars. We have 6 tracks across Brisbane with one in Buderim and one being built in Caloundra. Think it's something you want to try? Give me a yell.

Nice track, see ur racing in petrie, we are just down in warner if you are ever up for some motoring. Our track is only a scaley sport track but still fun. Looks like your routed track would be lots of fun and a joy to race on cheers mark..

Fun looking track, a few challenging sections, and another Queenslander - good to see more of us on the forum to keep the Mexicans in check.
Did your track replace a pool table?

cheers

Love your work Jay. I'm running SSD at Narangba. Believe John is rebuilding his in Burpengary. We've run on each others track and are always looking for others to be involved.
