With the points season over, Dad and I have given the Hillclimb a week off for some much needed repairs. We're replacing braid in several trouble sections (Finger, Donut Entry, Lead On) as well as taking some time to re-balance the track by going through the legs. It's just one more step to make sure that everyone has a great time in our shop.

Well, we managed to wrap everything up and the track is all back in one piece. Just a few crimps left to do before we put the power back to the Hillclimb for practice this evening and we're good to go for racing on Sunday tomorrow! Definitely a huge project but 100% worthwhile.

What are you using to adhere the braid to the track?

 

What did you use to clean the gains?

We re-routed the gain for clean-up (roughly .002") and used 3M Trim Adhesive for laying the braid down.
