RAY that is an awesome track!! I also wish I lived closer to Cleveland!!! What are your race fees?? we may have to have a family vacation soon!!!LOL

Wanna see another really ingenius barrier system take a look at www.rcohobbies.com , they actually have the barriers formed out of steel. It is actually alot more forgiving than you would think, and it takes up alot less space than any other system I can recall seeing......... Also it allows for much smoother turns......

I talked to Chric (the owner) and all of the pieces actually fit into a grid, so you can guarantee that you don't have to go searching for longer or shorter pieces and the track will always set-up flawlessly......

Ray, do you know how far away from Toledo you are?
ive been thru Cleveland a long time ago for a slot race, but I can remember how far it was.

It takes me about 2.5 hours from here, going thru detroit.

thanks
Might be interested in doing some big races there, looks like a fantastic track.

This picture is of a 180 turn. The flapper is cloe, but still a bit loose on the board. Gives you a chance to glance off a bit and keep going!!
