Here's some progress pics of the mini Korkscrew I'm building for Dennis Rios, Oceano, CA.

 

In memory of the great Monty Ohren and the fact that Dennis races on the Korkscrew in Modesto, he wanted one. His grandson was the motivator.   ;)

Track is 7.5 x 11'.  Three lanes at 4" spacing, 1/4" steel braid flush with track surface. Trackmate timing and Professor Motor adjustable power supply. Grey epoxy surface.

Ya think???
 
What a neat departure from the basic "mini hillclimb" type of home track. Absolutely great. (Of course I love the full size one too so maybe I'm a little biased.)

Dennis, that is very nice, even minus the "kink"!! Looks like a great use of space.

So when does everyone get to come down and beat you on your "home" track.  :-)
