I like the layout of your new flat track. It should be fun running on it. Is the lane spacing wide enough to run both 1/24 & 1/32 scale cars? Or is it planned to primarily run 1/32 cars? Sometimes I wish I lived on the other side of the country. :)

It is for both 4.25 spacing so there is plenty of room for the i/24 .

Nice work!  Turned out beautiful, I really like the diorama you guys have set up.  Great carpentry skills and great eye for detail.

Well last night we had our first race on the new completed track! We raced 1/32 and 1/24. What a blast, :)  our lap times were around the 6 second mark for the 1/32 and plus minus 5 seconds on the flexie 1/24 cars  Hope to see the retro guys soon for a racing party. Check it out here https://www.facebook...87830/timeline/  make sure to scroll down a bit to see the short clip of the new track . SEE YA ON RACE DAY :D
