So I decided to dip into slot cars after finding a childhood toy; an original AFX track with a single car. Now, I tried to run it, but it didn't work. I'd cleaned up the track, but the car was as good as roast. So I went looking for a tune up kit, when I saw this: It looked too good to pass up. So I didn't. I bought it. 3 days later, today, I received it! I immediately tore open the packaging, and begin looking at the marvelous set of track. First things first, it was so much bigger than I actually expected. It was enormous in comparison to the AFX track I'd played with as a kid, and it felt so so much better. First up I did a quick test run on a simple oval. I was not prepared for how quick the cars would be on this track, and quickly realised full throttle was a BAD IDEA. So anyway, I set about constructing the basic main stage for it, realising quickly the absolutely enormous size of this track. I played around with ways I could prop it all up (total length was 3 metres, width about 2). So the help of a couple of dining chairs, planks of wood and a clothes airer later, I had it all constructed. I didn't put the barriers up, which was a mistake. It might've helped keep the car on the track. Plus it would've looked 50X cooler!
