Here are some pictures of my 1/64 1000' drag strip.

I have run several proxy races on this track along with thousands of test passes.

Great  job but now you need a scale start tree.

 The track has an all LED full tree with stage and pre stage lights but it would be about 30' high if it were to scale.

 Thanks for all the likes.

 

Here are a couple more cars. Mad Maxx and his Willy's panel van vs the rude Stude Studebaker drag car.

The Willy's won this one:

Here are a couple of hot cars.

The fast red 57 Vette takes the win over the quick yellow Willy's, both cars are well under .5 seconds:

 Yes that is a Trackmate system. Since I worked all the bugs out it has worked well, FYI, tech support is hard to get with that company. Uses a dedicated computer, monitor and printer which prints out all the info you see on screen

It shows where the car is doing well or poorly by reading all the incremental times and MPH. It also shows where some cars react faster

than others since I start both at the same time. Have had instances where a car that was .05 quicker lose the race to another faster reacting car.

I run 2 30 amp 0-30v power supplies to handle the high amp draw super cars. Those cars picked up 10 mph when switching from 2 10 amp supplies, but even the milder cars improved some with those supplies.

Awsome setup.

 Thanks, I am planning a proxy drag race at my track in late November. All are welcome to enter. Rules and dates will be announced.
