More elevation and new tracks

I built another Hill style track, smoother, cleaner and racier, added some cool new guard rails. I came home from work and tore it down to build the next track, an unelevated variation of the previous one.

!00th post, wow?

Anyway, I built a very large oval, never drove it myself, I was busy with other projects, but Zander drove a 9.14 Lap time so there ya go.
  I built some more K rail style barriers, they work well, adjustable and best of all they are cheap posterboard. Add some packing tape and they become very tough. Add some weight on the ends and they stay down or leave em loose.
  I finished my last Stock car and it's quite nice, so much so I'll repaint the Yellow Stocker with a suggested scheme, until then, check it out,

Not Quite ( the Longest track in North America) One Result

Only because I haven't received my last input of track, so this may be the longest, but only for a moment in time. If you follow the Blog you know Zander and my views on track design, so here's One Result, according to the track designer, it totals out at 114 ft/34 meters, Wow, even for me.
Actually very fast if you learn the track.

See those Esses? Ignore them and drive straight through for best results.

Start/Finish line

This track took about 2 1/2 hours to layout, with the usual tape joints and odd kinks
But it has a bunch of short chutes to make lots of speed,
Best lap so far,27.66

New Body

I got my Final piece, a Stock car body from Hot Wheels, and dressed it up, nice I think.
I like the stock Blue rims with my color scheme so that's cool, and I used 1/24 scale decals from my local hobby shop, way back in the stacks.

New Hill track (this one is badass)

I like the Hill thingy and it's going to be a permanent fixture, due to to the modular nature of my hill pieces, and it's really fun!
 I want to build the Largest Track in North America, and I think I can, but Dang these type tracks are fun as Hell, Enjoy!
