Mick thanks you :) On the other note, I tried to post a correction for the BPR listing awhile back in that they no longer have the Hillclimb that was pictured but could not. I see it's been corrected.

Day 4 of the rebuild!

Normally a very talkative guy I've been stifled by MDF dust and very hard labor ;) I got to Vegas last Friday and began work on the BOW California Incline early Saturday. Honestly, I'm very comfortable building and working on 4 and six lane tracks, I did not look forward to working on this babe :blush: Gotta help out the Vegas crew though, there are some avid race enthusiasts that just won't let it die here in the Gambling capital!

Micky's new place is on the VERY busy Boulder Hwy between Arizona Charlie's and Sam's Town (same side of street). Saturday morn the new sign was installed and actually drew about a half dozen stops from interested passers by! (photos of outside to come). The new Slot Car City is a joint venture with Little Bigz Mikey who has the front half of the building filled with the finest sportsware.

Here's Biggun Bigz Houston showing he can perform even the most menial of labor tasks.

L-R Micky's bro Rick supervising as Houston and I try to get that dam turn to act right!

SLC_Hillclimb_HELP.jpg

Just about to the final stretch. Added 4 each 4' sections, banked the finger, banked the 90, flattened the entry to the 180 and very slightly banked the 180. Also lowered the lead on somewhat to make the lead on more driveable. Lot's of leveling, some sidewalls, some routing, painting, braiding and wiring and we'll be ready to race!

Thanks for the acknowledgements fellas :)

I've finished the rebuild but am stuck on a wiring problem. It was disassembled quickly and assumed that I would know how it goes back together. Unfortunatly although I know how to build tracks, I've always had a tech guy do my electronics. I don't even know how to hook up a relay unless it's spelled out simply as in the Trakmate system. I've never been able to figure out SRT...

Here's the track with mods:

Here's some of the first laps turned. L-R Micky & Houston

BTW, posted some help wanted herein and in drag section.

Looking forward to smelling some of that marine layer :laugh2: Well, the wife has been complaining about how cold it is @ the Marina...maybe time for a move back to AZ :o

Thanks for the photos Bob, that looks like a big challenge. ;)
When/if you slow down would be nice if you could schedule in a couple days to help me tune up the SD Hillclimb.
Leave the car at home, could I interest you in a round trip Ventura to SD train ticket? :)
Best,
