PostSubject: track plans   Thu Nov 06, 2008 10:00 pm

looking to build a track - would like some plan ideas..... we really like the way the mo. track runs compared to others we been on at shows.... i think we have most supplies avail. here but i dont have any plans or blueprints to go by or a track itself - you dont get time to study one at a show to really see how one sets up.... can anyone help with this?

well this is not the first post i made for some ideas on a track - all i ever got was one reply to look at pics and it doesnt show enough to just go with that,... i guess all those pullers or club people out there just dont want to share...?

no not 4k thats crazy mine was only 300$ of steel

shop around for casters if u can get the casters that hold 3000lbs each they will last 4ever

the track should be under 1,000$ easy

do u want an all steel track to take to shows or a wood one to put in ur yard?

well, we dont know if we can get enough members around here to host a show, so one we could use at shows would be nice but one just for the yard would be fine too... we really like the red bear and dunlap tracks you see in missouri

well if u want it to roll like butter u will have to spend some good money on casters and make shure the angle iron is straight and lines up nice with no gaps or bumps

and put some lube on the rails right b4 u pull i used some gun oil but wd40 would prolly work too
