Nice track. The second picture shows a very sharp right turn. That has been changed and is now a very nice smooth turn. I have raced on it many, many times and will miss it. I wish I had a place to put it. Whoever gets this track is going to get a sweet track. Sorry to see him have to get rid of it.

Just talked to Dallas and got some more info on the track.

 

As he recalls, the track footprint is 20' x 18'.

 

What comes with the track is two power supplies, one connected and one spare; don't know the brand or specs on these. The lap counting/timing system is also included, with the computer and monitor. Timing system is Trackmate.

 

I've also asked Dallas's daughter Sandy to send me current pics of the track, as there have been some small modifications (to just one turn, I think) since the pics in post #1 were taken a few years ago. Once I receive the new pics, I'll insert them into the first post.

 

I'm pretty certain Dallas would keep this track if he could, but the track room is needed for family members coming to assist in his recovery from his recent medical challenges. Everyone who has raced on it will tell you it is a teriffic and well-built track.

Guys, my friend Dallas is about as computer-challenged as they come, so please don't waste time sending him PMs or emailing him.

If you're seriously interested in his nice track, pick up the phone and call him please!

The price is right... but finding square footage to put it up is the problem for most.

Yeah... you're right about that part. That would burn the better part of a two-car garage. Still... nice deal for somebody with some space to burn.

Nothing in the rules that says you can't re-arrange the pieces with some new  routed curves and maybe  make a tight oval with an outside donut on the flat end.   That might allow it fit in a much narrower space.

If  a buyer is not found in time, maybe the track can be disassembled and stored, this will free up the space and save it from the scrap heap.

I just bought this track from Dallas and need to pick it up soon and transport to Tallahassee, FL. Can someone recommend a track guy for hire that can help me with the move?
