Ok, now that things have settled down and i've stripped down the old track to what i need to get started on the new one. So now from this weekend I will finally be able to start routing the pieces to the new track. Here are a couple of pics of where it is at right now, the two parts from the old track that are in the pics are the remainder of the old track which will be used to support 2 of the 3 sections of the new track.

Hey John,
Nice sized shed, looks like work is about to start do you have a plan yet or are you free styling.
Can help if you want Autocad drawings for dimension off.

Thanks Grant, i have an idea on what i want but yeah just like the last track i will be free styling with this one. This time i will have 120mm lane spacing all the way around, all lane changers will be routed and a big 3 lane section over the back. Being this is my 2nd build i have learnt from my mistakes on the first one

Track has progressed alot further with the pit lane, first lane changer and start/finish now have all the underside routing done and now have that section permanently fixed down, and now onto the banked section and 3 lanes wide, the banked corner coming onto pit straight is where the 3 wide section finishes.

Lots more work has been done to the track since last update and am about halfway through the routing stage and the 3 lane section is about to finish with the rest of the track will be 2 lanes and much more technical than what has been done so far.

Got some more progress done today with the first part of the technical section now screwed permanently into place and some more routing. The section towards the back straight will be elevated once routing is finished. About 3 more corners to go and some straights and it will be a complete track then I can finish off routing the other lane changers and start bogging ready for painting

Almost there, 2 more corners and a small straight to go before its a whole track. Here are some pics of where it is at atm. I haven't routed all the lane changers in yet i will do that once i get the track joined together. There will be 3 XLC's and 2 single changers (1 for pit which is done already and another for the 3rd lane). One of the XLC's is going on the straight that the XBOX Commodore is sitting

Another track update I still have 2 more lane changers to rout and I just did a quick mock up of the hill climb this arvo to give me an idea of what it will look like when finished, the shape of the hill climb will look better when I put all the supports underneath it. The last straight in the hill climb has a huge bow in it as the track before it needs to be trimmed more to release the pressure plus half the pieces aren't screwed together properly as you can see by a huge gap between 1 of the boards.

Track is getting there, it is still on track to be ready by the end of August, just got to finish sanding back the bog on the back straight and the bank plus touch up a couple of areas and then it should be ready for undercoat by the weekend.

Track is now undercoated and first coats of track colour have now gone on, i can be a little rough with the first few coats as these are the coats with iron powder mixed in the paint to give the 1/32 plastic chassis cars a mild magnatraction. I will make the edges much neater when putting the final coats without the iron powder.

Copper taping now done. I will do some soldering this afternoon and tonight and by the end of the night i should be able to take a car for a test run. No lane changers will be working till at least the end of this week and i may still be sorting them early next week. While i have this week off work i will start getting the important boundaries cut and fitted ready for first racemeet to keep the cars from hitting the ground. I will probably have another post in the next few days with some video footage of a car driving.

Bring on tomorrow night, while there is still far more work to be done it now has enough borders to keep the cars from hitting the floor and all lane changers and lap timing works plus I have all driver stations now functional, so before I complete anymore I think I will get a racemeet or two done to see if I need to fix any issues
