In January I went by the ROMS King after John bolted it together and it looked mighty Rough. I went by again tonight and you can not appreciate the job that John has done until you see it in person. The Child did a great job. It is flat and smooth I must admit I had my doubts when I 1st saw it.
It is definately worth the drive over to see it.
Way to Go John.
By the way I broke all of Chase's records tonight.


Thanks for the kind words Tony!

I'm a little behind scheduled, but it'll be raced on very soon. I should have all of the tap wire in place tomorrow. I have to fix a few things before we can start to think about running on it. After that I'll connect some power to the track, so we can start to put laps in and see how the track reacts to different tires.

Making progress!!! It'll be done soon.

Any thoughts of cross sanding the corners to increase bite?


Yes, I'll be doing that.

Been working on the track a lot. I've got all of the wires, wiring harness, and all taps run and have them all secured in place. I got my power distribution set and ready for it to have some "juice" running to/through it. Lots of tight spaces, crawling, and laying down; it takes a lot of time to do this. I have fixed a few things that were a problem. I also have the drivers panel painted for each lane. While the paint was drying, I went and cut out an infield piece for the finger. Tonight I got the "glue zones" stripes painted. I'll wait a few days before I scuff the corners for "tire bite". While working on running the wires to the drivers panel, a unusual thing happened. I was laying on the ground and looked over, and thought what was a worm; well it turned out to be a baby snake. After getting it to go in a brass tube(that I had used to mix some paint), I pushed out into a water bottle. It was completely covered in red paint, I rolled it around until almost all of the paint came off of it. I find it kind if ironic that this happened, because the name of the track is "Black Mamba"; thought of it about for months ago. So all that reply, will get to have a dream with snakes in it tonight. Ok, back to the track. I should be getting in some of the stuff to start to do the connections, on Wednesday. Still waiting on a few things that it will need before it can be ran on. I am planning on having some spray glue and cars on the track by early next week.

Here are the track records, that have been "set".
