I havent posted many of my latest builds as I had problems posting pics. Let's try it again!

A long time Cruzin customer (from Cruzin Chandler, AZ '93-94), Roger Gunning finally got his new house and got me to build a track for his living room. That's right - his living room :)

Roger found the Pendle Slot Racing Club track in the UK to his liking so I did my best to duplicate without really making it the same. I have admired many of the UK club tracks and this one IMO is awesome.

We are installing it tomorrow, Cinco de Mayo 2012!

Track is 12x20', 4 lane 4" lane spacing 5" gutters. 81' lane length. Magnatech braid, trackmate timing. He is part of the Arizona Garage Racers Club based around Chandler, AZ. $4K track only RTR.

The AZGR now have about 8 tracks on their circuit, 5 wood routed (all built by me) and 3 plastic.
