Thank you, Justin; good job! Just what I was looking for. I have 50 cars to put together and bodies to mount. Was driving me crazy.

Mike Swiss has a body mounting fixture that works well, as well as the R-Geo one that Justin showed. In The Parts Counter section on here you will see another one that is pretty slick. The manufacturer does raceway discounts as well.

I drove past the track around 8-ish last night. The gate was closed for the Bar and Grill. I am assuming that was the way to get in. I only saw the flashing sign out front. 

 

I was hoping to stop and check the place out. I will give it a try the next time when I am in the Warren area.

A couple things, Butch.

 

There isn't such a motor as a 4002SK.

 

Did you mean 4002FK?

 

If you are too busy of a man to post with caps and lower case, in the appropriate spots, just post in all lower case, and it should be easier for Cheater to edit your post, to look the way he prefers.
