    That'll be fun to run. Go fast, turn left. No. RIGHT! Then figure out just how the race position changed that lap and watch the top end unfold till we get around to standing on the brake and doing it...

    Software to make Slots an arcade game?

    I've been getting calls from people wanting to add tracks to their "family Fun Centers". Has anyone developed a program designed to be easily learned so people new to slots can run races against each...

    It was built like that Bill. I designed it after a concept that Steve Lovan of St Louis came up with for his shop. I actually called it a Donoval because Steve said he wanted an oval with a dougnut...
  5. Central Indiana Racers look here. Drag and circuit tracks.

    A friend alerted me to these. Looking at the auction both takes me back to the nineties and makes me want to go bitch out all the raceway owners who complain about getting no business but don't take...

    That's one that we built. Looks like it's probably a Grandstand layout. Less than 17 x 48' footprint and may need a few legs built for it. If you're really curious as to what it is you could go see...

    But then on the other hand I don't see a 90 for putting together a King. So it may be a Grandstand layout. But I didn't see any tall legs like would be needed to put togethera Grandstand. So...

    It looks like I built it and I know it's not a UK Black. The ratio of straits to turns is too high for a Black. But it does look to me that the picture of the three turns are the deadman, finger and...

    From looking at the picture I'd say that this track's footprint is less than 16' wide, can be placed directly against the wall on the back and banked ends, and is around 40' long.

    It's what would be considered a Drivers King by today's standards. I thought it was interesting that all the cars shown running in the videos were hard shells. That would really add to the amount of...

    I'd like to see a picture of the whole track it's attached to. It stripes make it look like one I built but the connection plates are wrong for that.

    Where are you located? I'm still building tracks. Seems like I need to take some time off to build an add campaign though. :-)

    What do you like better about the VMP naphtha? I don't clean tracks that often and haven't noticed a difference.

    Naphtha is thinner and less oily than kerosene. I'd worry about kerosene leaving an oily film on the surface. Naphtha is sold here in the states as a fast drying paint thinner and nearly all paint...

    I thought I'd replied to this after te underside pictures were posted but apparently not. Looking at the bottom of the track I suspect that it's a Hasse track or built by someone who was mimicking...

    I think what you're missing is that the guys posting in this thread weren't trying to put additional space between the outside slot and the wall. I don't think anyone ever did that commercially until...

    I was thinking of modeling it in scale by printing the layout on cardstock, cutting it out and then bending it into shape. (A model of a model car racetrack.) If you do the full scale model of the...

    Yeah, not every promotional idea will work equally well for everybody. It's just that I, like Races2u, am somewhat surprised at the number of raceways who take a "I've built it, now they should come"...
