Will need probably a white board at Viv's? To keep track of the places maybe. I understand Viv isnt set up as yet with the track mate program? Just a thought.

I could bring a Trackmate system down with me and install it for the night.

I'll need one for my portable track anyhow sometime when Grant is able to get back to the construction side of things.

Viv, if you see this, give me a holler today, I'd just need 10 minutes to install the software.

Yes the track is proving to be quite a challenge. Once the bumps are ironed out and Track Mate sorted it will be awesome. Im picking up Ross's track this afternoon. Im already thinking of adding a middle and stretching the track to 7.2 metres with a crossover bridge. Im excited actually. With put design to paper.

That was my very first routed track, looks pretty basic now - but it ill allow you to test cars at least.

How many lanes is the track Craig? Does it have club potential?

If I add a middle section to it of same length as the other two pieces then yes.Its a 3 laner. Needs quite a bit of work to get to club standard but could be done. But thinking about it I may go to a four laner and make a completely new track. 7 metres long to be precise. Figure 8 or either just two bends and two straights. Just a speed track. Going back to the one I picked up would still be a good practise / test track.

I've thought about figure 8s too. Great idea I reckon. Or maybe a track that is symmetrical so that it doesn't favour any particular lane. A simple track thats fast and easy for all skill levels.

Thats exactly my thinking. Still will get this track up and running.See how I go. Spent a bit of time on my cars today but no trackavailable to test them out .Rang Viv but his wife said he was busy and he would ring back.....He didnt.Wanted to ask for a spare hour on his track this afternoon. Hence the test track I will set up.

I'm keen for some 65-80 sports this week. Finally got my MkII sorted. We should think about revisiting our rules discussions also. Has the club tried classes that are unpodded only?

Heya Craig

Chris emailed instead of posting here.
Will get NPSR cleaned up for use.
Classes
trucks
Lmp/Gp C
nascar

But I won't run my "kitset Buggy" there, too much truck too little sidewall barrier.

yeah, we should continue that discussion. Non podded also covers quite a range of speeds.
eg Mac's spirit 512 ferrari in the proxy is an absolute weapon as are his Slotter Lolas.
The Fly cars of similar ilk are nice, but lower powered, and not as good quality mechanics, so with the best tuning won't be as fast . .

Don't think i'll risk the truck. Nascar will be fun. Maybe we should start posting results too.
