  • Palmer Divide Raceways v5

    I figured I might as well just start a brand new thread...again. Please remind me to stop moving, and I'll stop rebuilding the track...

    As discussed on the old thread, we moved from Colorado to Florida and purchased a home with a 30x40 detached garage. It was big, dirty, bug-infested, and sweltering hot garage. The intent has been to get it clean, cool, and able to be used as a slot car room in lieu of a basement as well as a parking spot for my 1:1 slot car and my mower. The dart board and Foosball table are also going to reside in here - along with a small fridge for "refreshments".

    The PDR was disassembled and will be put back together with a 4' extension so that I have some more scenic opportunities and a bit more room to stretch the cars' legs. I'll also be making the table on casters so it can be easily rolled if needed.

    In the beginning:

    So, now on to the decorations and the rebuilding of the PDR! I'll be purchasing lumber this coming weekend and hope to have the track off the floor by late next week if all goes well.

    Stay tuned!

    Great job so far! Nice car too! Is the Slot Car Lighting on a dimmer?
    What'd you use to cool that space, a 10 ton? lol Whatever it is it'll be running 95% of the time in Florida!

            Don't know if it's the angle, but the garage door looks to close for comfort to the car!

                    Maybe you could install a few ceiling fans , to at least have the air moving inside of it

                      Wow! What a space! And I know the track is going to be awesome! I'm green with envy. Maybe I should sell this place and move to Florida!
                      Really looking forward to this build!

                        Looking good Doc, I know you’ll keep at it and us informed. Do watch the tail of that 1:1 and that door.
                        Steve, stationed both places, and every time I flew in to AR&SC the humidity was worse than down at Dave’s!

                        Cheers guys,

                          Your garage is a thing of dreams. Will be great to see PDR up & running again.
