Just wanted to show how quick some of these cars are.
This was a match held during a recent race held on my track. The light green 55 Chevy gasser is powered by an AFX magnatraction chassis. It is 15 mph faster and 1 second quicker than a stock AFX car. The darker green 55 is running a BSRT inline chassis.
The latter is highly modified and holds both ends of the track record. It has beaten the times shown and is running at only 20V.

You are welcome. I have had several organized proxy races on the track with good success.
Many are amazed at how fast these cars run. I have heard of speeds of well over 100 mph on a 21', or full 1/4 mile, track in under .2 of a second.
They ran two industrial batteries with a commercial charger pushing around 30V with a lot of amps available. Some of the motors would explode running that fast.>:)
I have the power supplies but not the stopping room to run faster.

This kind of racing can become addictive as you can see by what I have been doing. I think your customers will find it is a lot of fun and reaction time is critical with cars as fast as these are. My setup can even run bracket races which allow a driver to put in a time they think the car can run. You cannot run under that time or you break out and lose the race.

Length of the track is 15' 7.5" or a scale 1/64 1000'. There is a 3' steel stop strip on each lane + dynamic braking and a catch box.
Question; My track table length is the Same. What does that = to in mileage
also table is 4ft. wide... what would 15' 7.5 X 4' come out to in HO scales
(1/64 & 1/72) ???
also, could you list a math formula for this in; 1/64, 1/72 (Aurora/DASH T-Jet) 1/43 & 1/32 Please ?? :confused:

BIG Thanks :wink2:
