My Scalextric Dream....

  Clio 182, OctaviaVRS

Call me a big kid or whatever but how cool would this be if you had the space and money??

I would love to have a spare room dedicated to Scalextric.......Can you imagine having a wooden floor, thats cut out to sit the track into it - then all painted up properly to look like a proper track - you could then build grandstands all around, have a pit lane with garages for all your different cars, you could even have an Oval round the outside with full on proper bank corners etc - THEN, have a platform in the room so that you could look down on to all this track and play for hours and hours - youd have a proper timing system with lap time display etc - can you honestly imagine it?? How good??? If i could afford this - i would definitely do it!! Can you imagine even having tiny cameras setup so that you could record from low level, or have on-board cameras etc!!

Sorry for the essay but this is just something ive been thinking about whilst being bored here at work!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just discovered the house I am renting has got a floor in the loft, perfect for my Scalextric, I got the Le Mans 24 hour set for my birthday!!! And now I have room to put it up, and join it too all my old track, hours and hours of fun!!!

when we went to america there was this shop dedicated to scaleextrics and they had a 6 lane circuit which had cross overs but the cars cost like $500 and did stupid speed of up to 50mph the shop owner had the world record for the fastest car which made 72.5mph or summit i was like woah !!!!

he he .. we used to go up to my mates . he had a 6 lane track in his front room at waist level.

the track was like an oval but with the lanes gettin very narrow so only 2 cars could fit through the 2 bends

all the cars were in f1 stock car form. all hand built and very heavy......and quite fukkin fast too.... made for some intersting crashes in the bends

was top fun

I used to have a big track set up on a board. Best thing to do it attach everything to the board with screws, then you can lean it up against the wall so it doesnt take up much space.
