I have a hand-routed 1/32 scale, 60' track, commercial grade controllers and over 30 cars. Always looking for more people! PM me if you would like to give it a try.
The track is 60' 10" per lane, The cars in that image can do a lap in 6.9 - 7.5 seconds, the trucks are very heavy and can run 7.8 - 8.5 seconds. It's a difficult track to drive because of all the different turns and elevation changes. So, if you can average anywhere in 7 - 8 seconds, you are doing decent. Track record is 6.72 seconds with the white Mercedes in the second image.That is awesome. How fast do they get?
Maybe I can get a video this weekend. The General Lee was kind of a dog. I had to do a lot of work to get it to perform decently. It is limited edition model from one of the "toy" grade slot car manufacturers. It cost a fortune for something so crappy ($150). My son bought it. He likes movie cars. He also bought Mad Max, James Bond, Back to the Future and a Batmobile.Love that General Lee. Any videos of a race?
That's true, they go pretty damn fast. But, you have to be very good and have a decent car for those speeds. Something in the 8 - 9 second range would be more likely. I have a couple of cars I think could break in to high 5s if I could figure out how to get enough traction. It would take an incredible amount of skill, though; definitely beyond my ability.Looks like a lot of fun....!
If the track is 60 feet in length & it takes 6.9 to 7.5 seconds per lap, that means the cars actual speed is 5.1 to 5.9 mph (average). The scaled mph is 164 to 189 mph (average).
