Thanks Grant,

Done a little more progress today with some underside of the track routing for the pit lane changer and first XLC for all the components from the Scalextric track piece to fit into the wooden lane changer. Now that this job is finished i can finish screwing down the board that have been routed and fill all gaps and screw holes and sand back this section ready for paint. This will also allow me to start working on the big banked section up against the back wall that will join onto the front straight

Obviously i havent cleaned up the furry edges yet but i will do that when i go to install the components.

I am SOOO going to have to pick your brains John. I have a plan and it would be WAY cooler in wood than the Plastic Fantastic. I can jiggle angles for a start. Will that be a problem for you?

As far as I can tell Red Racer is the only shop up here so I'm used to that sort of distance to mess about. Am I missing any?

Some more progress was done over the weekend, the new section still needs more fixing down which will give a much better shape into the banked corner. This banked corner is where the 3 wide section will also finish. Only one more corner to go then onto the 3 wide back straight.

That banked corner looks fantastic. The MDF looks damn thick, 18mm? Can I see grooves that you've cut in to the underside of the track to help with the banking?

Curious as to what tool you used for that as I need to do some humps on MDF soon (that doesn't sound right but anyways)

Thank you. Yes you are correct i had to groove the underside as it is 19mm that i had leftover from cutting up the old track i just flipped the pieces over so underneath the banked corner now there is still grass and some slots from the old track in between the grooves i routed to help the flex. It would have been easier to use 12mm and not groove but as i still had 3 large pieces of the old track sitting here so i may aswell save some money and use that. I used a 20mm straight bit for the grooving and i just done them by hand without using a guide. I will take some shots for my next update

Cheers John

Got to add on another corner today i ran out of the old 19mm so back to 12mm which is easier to work with anyway, i still have to set the banking entering the corner but i will get around to that tomorrow or Monday, then once that is done i can do the back straight and then work my way into the more techincal section in the middle.

Here is a shot of the underside of the 19mm piece that i grooved out underneath to help with banking

And where i am at today

More progress was done today with the back straight and the longest straight now all routed, it will get shortened a little bit to accommodate the corner coming onto the straight. Still need alot more supports fitted but will do them during the week. Now to begin the technical middle section over the weekend.
