The Gerding G8 King that was formerly at Skidmarks is now set up and wired (needs timing and race director installed) for operation at Downriver.

Nice how those poles lined up (except for the marshals getting past the one in the Deadman).


Nice work, JB. You are a very determined man!

Never complacent - striving to race to ever increasing levels of mediocrity!


The only thing I know about slot cars is if I had a good time when I leave the building! I can count the times I didn't on one hand!

The notion that one can have their slot car racing and EAT IT, too!

Wow the track looks very nice.

Do they still have the drag strip there?

The drag strip is gone. Bought for club style racing at a business in Mt. Clemens, MI.
