Yes mate from where the drivers stand you will have a clear view of the cars at the highest point, it looks a lot higher in the photos than what it actually is

More routing done today, and the technical section is about to begin. The uphill straight leading to the corner that comes onto the back straight needs a Lane changer routed into it and also not much left to go for the 3 lane section before become 2 lanes for the rest of the track.

Thanks Matt,

I managed to squeeze a little more time in on the track this morning with some progress now starting to happen in the middle of the track.

Got some more progress done today with the first part of the technical section now screwed permanently into place and some more routing. The section towards the back straight will be elevated once routing is finished. About 3 more corners to go and some straights and it will be a complete track then i can finish off routing the other lane changers and start bogging ready for painting

Started fixing down the latest part of the inner section today and also added a small amount of banking to it.

Almost there, 2 more corners and a small straight to go before its a whole track. Here are some pics of where it is at atm. I haven't routed all the lane changers in yet i will do that once i get the track joined together. There will be 3 XLC's and 2 single changers (1 for pit which is done already and another for the 3rd lane). One of the XLC's is going on the straight that the XBOX Commodore is sitting

Another track update i still have 2 more lane changers to rout and i just did a quick mock up of the hill climb this arvo to give me an idea of what it will look like when finished, the shape of the hill climb will look better when i put all the supports underneath it. The last straight in the hill climb has a huge bow in it as the track before it needs to be trimmed more to release the pressure plus half the pieces aren't screwed together properly as you can see by a huge gap between 1 of the boards.

Hey John,
Is it an optical illusion or is that banked curve near vertical now.

Hi Grant. At its steepest it is halfway between horizontal and vertical. I got the idea for the bank from a track i raced on last year that is even steeper. I have sat cars on the corner as i was a little worried about the angle but even with MDF dust they dont fall off or slide down when sitting there so the should go through there no worries when flying down the straight

Bugger you and your building stuff John,
You've given me getting that deadly building bug again. aaaarrrrchoooo! Think it might be a bad case this time.
I pulled down the plastic fantastic in the weekend and now spent the day planning a rally track rather than working.
Routed again this time, like you I have learnt a lot from my first one, and the two other starts that never really got off the ground.
They were rather ambitious to say the least, so employing the KISS principle on this one.
Hopefully this one will get off the ground.
Anyway much more fun than working.

Keep up the good work.
Cheers Grant

Thanks mate, you wont regret pulling apart the plastic track, you have a nice size shed so it will be good to see what you come up with.

I got all the Lane changers routed and most of the supports done now only 4 more to go then i can start the bogging the screw holes and joins. Also put some access holes into the tables where lane changers are so i can access them once the scenery is done.
