Recommended Posts

I used to run a very large, fully landscaped 4 lane Scaley track, it was a great layout, but the extremes of the Canberra weather caused continuity problems and in some cases, buckling of the track. My fellow slotters suggested I convert it into a routed track. I spoke to "32 Coupe" and after several discussions and looking at different designs that he came up with, we agreed on a design that was similar to my original layout, with room to build a pit and spectator area. 32 Coupe routed a great track in a very short time frame and kindly delivered the sections. Thanks 32 Coupe, would gladly recommend your work. All that was left for me to do assemble the sections, paint, lay the braid and add the scenery. I wired it up to run in either direction and added LED night lights for racing at night. Here is the finished ? track… I think it will evolve more over time.

Nice job. Looks like it'd be a fun place to run.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

How about an abseiling rescue team down to the Michelin car, I can't quite make it out, the headlights suggest an RS.

 

It is great to see a landscaped and lit track, to me it shows people enjoying all aspects of the hobby.

HaHa I could do that, yes it is a RS200, hit with a blow dryer to bend it so it looks like it hit the tree it's resting against. Changed the light gantry, the old one looked a bit clunky, will post pics of the new slim line updated version.

Great looking track, just needs some rubber laid down on the racing line but they'll come with use.

 

What's the #15 car parked next to the Cobra? Almost looks like a soft-top Datto 1600.

 

Cheers

PS. You know everything Andrew knows about track building he learnt from me. He'd watch what I do and do the opposite, that's why he's so good.

May the downforce be with you.

Yeppers, soft top Datto. Resin kit from the States, Chassis from Pendle slots, runs well. As soon as the weather warms will paint my BRE Datto 510 running same Pendle Chassis.
