Hi all.

 

Nothing like a bit of self promotion. See recent publication in local Motoring Newspaper insert.

 

Note caption on second photo is wrong. It is field from recent Canam Proxy - Taranaki Round at Bowman Raceway.

Do I see copper tape in a rebate or is it braid?

Hi Gary.

 

The Canam Proxy track picture was taken at Bowman Raceway prior to start of racing for 2013 round. This is an old 1/32 metal car track from Wellington that a local bought about 2 years ago. You are right. Copper tape is recessed like we do now with braid.
