This is the road course I am bringing to Lightning Fest 2004. It is a Tomy AFX track set into a foam base. I had to make it so it easily fits into my van so it's small size had to pack a fair amount of track. I don't like the tight 6"r turns but they were needed in order to fit as much track as possible. I have had a few freinds over and both lanes are very fair.
The cars in the picture are all in the same lane and heading the correct direction. The X Tractions work the best for obvious magnetic reasons. A good lap time is sub 5 seconds. My best is a 4.34 with a stock X Traction. In order to run JLTO's a simple added peice of tape to the guide pin is all that is needed to trip the timer.
I do have a Ninco track timer set up on it. I had to cut it to fit and splice the wires. As you may or may not know the 1/32 timer is made for cars with huge guide pins. Therefore the tiny HO pins don't always trip the timer. The X Tractions must be set to the flag and the JLTO's need a added peice of tape.Its a cool little unit as it will start a 25 lap race with the push of one button. It records the number of laps your best lap time and the total time to complete 25 laps, and thats just the basic first funtion.
