Apart from installing the trees and the figures around the track, nothing much happened scenerywise because
my friend engineer stopped by and helped me out with the wiring. The wiring is now changed from standard jack
to standard 220V electricity plugs which should me more reliable and resistant to abuse. Secondly I hooked the
track up to a variable transformer (10 Amps) that allows me to turn down the power when the kids want to have a
You can imagine what happened once the controllers were functioning properly...yeah... racing-time !
I tried out every car and every lane and it was FUN !!!
Much better than a plastic track because there is less magnetic traction which makes the speeds more realistic,
and you have to DRIVE this circuit. Moreover, once I switched it to 6,5V me and the kids raced the Nascars as
never before ! Every turn was hard fought and although the kids haven't really figured it out yet, you need to
keep as much speed in the turn as possible (without drifting) and get on the throttle as soon as possible coming
out of the turn. Only then can you achieve enough top end speed to overtake the car right in front of you. The
kids were happy just to make their laps, while I had the perfect opponents to try out different passing-techniques.
