    Lanemaster Still In Business?

    I'm interested in buying Lanemaster for my 4 lane Max Trax track. I emailed them early yesterday and haven't heard from them. From Goggling I get the impression that they're no longer in business. Anyone know if they're still in business or not?

    I had not heard anything regarding Lanemaster no longer being available - as far as I know it still is...
    Contact Gary Beedle @ Scale Auto
    He is the distributor / dealer for Lanemaster:
    http://www.scaleauto.com/lanemstr/
    email: hoslots@scaleauto.com


    For a 4 lane home/club track in either HO or 1/32 scale, I would recommend TrackMate:
    TRACKMATE RACING
    Web Site: http://www.TrackmateRacing.com
    email: sales@trackmateRacing.com
    TEL: 604-582-1946
    Toll Free: 877-756-8227 (USA & Canada)
    Trackmate Racing 14624 - 102 Ave Surrey BC V3R7E5 Canada


    And... considered by many as the top option for serious home & club or commercial slot car racing (although a bit more expensive), would be LapMaster:

    Thanks, Paul. I downloaded demos for all the above. I'd like to be able to have qualifying. As far as I could tell Trackmate doesn't have that feature.

    Lapmaster is too expensive for a home track. They need to come out with a home version at an affordable price.

    I've been reading this forum and know everyone raves about Lapmaster, but I wouldn't use 1/10th of it's features. For what I want to do, I like Lamemaster the best. I sent my email to the address you gave. I didn't think about calling. I'll do that right now. Thanks!

    Edit: Oops! You gave the number for Trackmate, not Lanemaster. I may call them and see if there's a way to run qualifying.

    Scale Auto answered my email. I like Lanemaster, but it turns out it's also pretty pricey. That wouldn't be an issue for commercial use. but for home use it's kind of hard for me to justify. I ended ordering Trackmate. I played around with the demo some more and it will do what I need to, and at half the price of the other two.

    Thanks again, Paul!
