Pete:The sensors are best just after the start line but remember that you may need a light source over them!

 

I use a hard nylon roller to roll the tape down over any repairs,I think they are used for wall paper.

 

PS looking bloody good!

looks great slider, get some fences up before you start doing some quicker laps, its along way to the floor.

 

And nice touch painting the slots before taping, something I always did and it will make marshalling easier.

Got the track wired up today and all the crash barriers are on and spent a good 4 hours racing with a mate and my 11 year old daughter , bloody hell did we have fun, far better than i ever expected and only using box stock cars no weight no trueing or glueing tyres just put them on the track and go for it adjusted the volts to suit the different cars and man was it fun , v8 supercars , trucks , minis, american muscle cars , porsche,s , ninco classic,s , open wheelers 60,s era (coopers etc ).

Just to much fun :o:P:D:lol: :band: :clap: :clap: :clap: :P:);)

Glad that you have it running, and not off a drill battery as some one would have done! Now for a bit of tuning to the cars using the "routed tuning kit you got" . You will never keep the guys away now.

 

Jabob: I am at Old Beach but we race at different track around Hobart. See the web site below.
