Hi Kilko
I've tried to send Wes a PM but it doesn't seemed to have
gone. Probably me, incompetent with age.

However I did find an email address going back seven years and sent
Wes a message and it hasn't bounced back so I hope it went ok.

I know Wes has problem with the mailaddress.

I'll PM you and then you might get to Wes. Or if you PM me your address I can forward it to him.
Racing Regards

To MagRacer

Here are mine track. https://magracing.no/bb.html

BTW. Do consider making a separate pit-lane.
With Racecoordinator you can than use 'fuel-use' with compulsory pit stop. Creates a lot of good happenings.
Racing Regards

Update on my progress... almost finished with the MDF boards. I have not yet mounted the boards, I will make one at a time and use the plaster method.

I am designing my layout in DesignSpark and I think it will take me a week to get it finished, better do it right the first time :-)

That one corner looks awfully tight. What is the minimum radius that you intend to use?

I agree: any radius smaller than 25 cm spells trouble.

Thank you for the feedback

So more than 25 cm, I hope I have space enough :shock:
