            In this case I bought the steak (car itself) and sizzle (story that goes with it). In the end this will cost me a lot more than $150 because once it's used to christen my new oval I'm going to need to build a bunch of retro cars like it for a racing series. The track and cars will be my top project for the rest of the year.

            Plus, it's all for HRW which is a great resource and community. Money well spent in many ways.

              The only closeup I have so far came out blurry. This is a beautiful car that outclasses all my other modified cars. Which means it will be the seed for a new class - the Retro Modified Series (RMS) on my new oval. It needs at least 7 playmates for a solo racing series.

                Congrats!! Car looks really good! That lane channel looks cringeworthingly thin with the guide in the slot!

                Yes, the banking on this new corner section caused the inner 2 lane slots to be compressed. I opened lane 1 up using sandpaper wrapped around a fingernail file and need to do the same with the lane the X1 is in.

                BUT, I sent track builder Brad Bowman an email today asking him to create new CNC files for new corner design. The newly routed corner section shown above is going to be replaced, but a similar situation is apt to happen with the new corners too unless I find a fix.

                  The car is an absolute beauty, my photos don't do it justice.

                  After this car gets a thorough thrashing about on the new oval and I have an idea what works best I expect to be in touch with you about parts or complete cars to grow this new series.

                          If any of you guys are like me this car brings back memories of the joy of sitting in the stands at a Saturday night short track as a field of similar cars took to the track for the first heat of the night. In a few hours 24 or so of these ground pounding monsters would be speeding through turn 4 on their way to take the green flag to start the feature race - 30 laps of controlled mayhem to see who got to victory lane this week.

                          Nothing could be better on a warm and balmy summer evening.
