Sliderparkraceway.jpgHi Guys

I have finally got my track up and running i have built it on a 16ft by 6ft table which is hoisted into the roof of shed . It is a 4 lane plastic track (scx,scaley sport and classic) powered by D3800 (Dick Smith ) power supply . With Parma economy 25ohm controllers. Still trying to wire it all up have a lot to do yet but i have made a start every time i go to the shed to do some work i end up playing instead . and i,m having a ball. i,m going to try and post some pic,s if i can. Regards Peter

The rod in the middle slides up and down when it is down i will put a building over it so it can,t be seen . the legs fold up , and the eletric winch pulls it up into the roof of shed and then i lock it in place with the chains on the main beam . and on the far end i have another chain to stabilize the table . i have to lower it by hand which is a bit harder then i would like but im looking at maybe a bigger handle .

i hope i have covered it all

Cheers Peter

Hi Phil

I know for a fact that the table weights in at 100 kg then there is the steel frame you can see underneath which supports the table and centre lift pole i dont know how much it weights at a guess in would be 20 kg then the track and cars etc . the boat winch i am using is a GMC . it says not ti use as a hoist . it works of a 12 volt power supply , Rolling capacity 2700kg

max boat weight 2250 kg

pulling capacity 900 kg

cable length 9m

 

maybe im pushing my luck i dont know it all seems ok so far and once it is up it is well supported and the weight taken off the winch . if i can be of any more help or you or your mate are up launceston way feel free to drop in and check it out . Regards Peter :)

Finally got round to doing a bit on the new :D Sliderpark Raceway :D my hat is off to all you guys that have or a going to build a Routed Track . i have been in the shed all day today working on my track what i wanted and what i have is two different things ,not that it,s unusual for that to happen . :D i have all the straights routed now to do the corners the track is 16 ft long by 8 ft wide 4 lane,s 100mm spacing between tracks and 120 on outside and 85 inside new track

 

not a hard track but should be a good flowing track will be a bit of elevation and of course some scenery no tight corners so hopefully a fair bit of speed ,

Also a learning curve for me .

Cheers Slider

sounds great Slider I am in the process of building one that's 21'x 7'10" three lane routed. I started the other way and am doing the corners first I figured it would be easier to match up the straights to the corners that way.but we will see.

one day I'll figure out how to post piccy's Yeah I know I'm a dumb old "B"

 

what I did was build a 1/10 scale model out of ply first gives you a good perspective of what the finished track will look like.

keeps me off the streets

Looks good so far Pete !

 

Viv, I've never heard of anyone building a scale model of a slot car track, but it is a good idea, that way you can get it all looking right before you start on the real thing. That 1:320 scale track would make AFX tracks look huge !!

Thanks Jamie Thanks Viv :D a scale model would have been a great idea it would have made it a lot easyier , This is not what i originally wanted but the way its done i can add to it later if i wish also i can change the shape if need be , i have used this as a learning curve so when i decide to do it again i can use the bits that i have it,s kinda modular if that makes any sence . Anyhow cheers

Looks good slider. Nice & neat.

 

I must admit, I did a scale replica out of cardboard before I built mine. That made it so much easier to determine whether I would like it or not

Pete: Great start! It is actually easier to do the corners first,that way if you make a slight mistake it can easily be fixed by tapering the straights. But you are going well.

 

I started my new track back in April and have only just finished the routing!

Slider - Track looks really good. My plan for the 3 laner I want to build is very similar so I will be really interested to see how the track comes along. I like the idea of a fast flowing track that has a bit for everyone. Looking forward to more posts.
