Scorpius digital 3 lane Suzuka

Recommended Posts

Here's some pics of what will be a 3 lane Scorpius digital track version of Suzuka. Col is the owner/builder and I will help where I can (my hand is out of action at the moment due to argument with glass) Frame is still under construction and will be at its highest point at the spoon curve. The plan is to straighten it out so it's relatively fast from the spoon to the pits. Cant remember how many lane brains he said will be installed but it wont be overload. A few lanes and pits. The rate he is going (started Sunday) it will be ready this weekend. Been a LONG time since I've had anything to do with a track build - it's a bit exciting!

Dropped into Col's to see how he was going today, he is working on the lane change section and lane brains, looking good

Those last two photos look good. Earlier ones come up with a message saying the URL has expired when I try to look at them (on my phone). I'm sure I had seen some of the earlier ones previously, but not now. Have you moved the photos since posting them?

Looking forward to following the progress of this project B)

strange, I haven't moved or changed any of the pics, not sure what happened, have hopefully fixed it now. Pics from today, looking good taking shape fast, was good to look at angles and discuss things while Col is building

Hope you got a few friends, I can see 4 marshals needed for something that long, and binoculars.

Looks very impressive, love following new builds, thought there would have been a lot more during the southern states lockdowns.

Hey Gref, a quick question. At the esses after the 1st bend it look likes there is a lane changer that would give the option of going around some of the squiggly bits? Is that right? It's the 3rd lane changer by my count

Edited by Shaynus
lane changer number added

being wireless (scorpius) drivers can stand where ever they like which will be handy

yes at the moment there are 3 lane changers, 1 is to pit, but more be added elsewhere in track yet

track is all routed, back of track undercoated and painted (due to weather - humidity) and top  painting started today, coming along nicely. Col may have it finished sooner than expected! Also today he made a removable section so it can be run as analogue if we cant get decoders for cars etc
