That looks like a nice fresh drag strip. They are building a Dollar General right behind me. I hope the lot is big enough we can "borrow" part of it every now and thenOooo the temps are going up. I can almost smell the nitro in the air. Drag racing time is almost here.
I got the latest piece of my drag racing puzzle.
The traxxas start light.
Super simple, you push the button on top to start a yellow light blinking. When the yellow light stops blinking and is illuminated solid a timer begins . Some time between 2~6 seconds after the yellow goes solid the white light turns on. That’s it. That’s all you get for $35.00
The next best thing is a whole set up for 500 bucks.
Now I still need the Sky RC GPS unit. That will tell me my 132 foot and 60 foot times.
And I need an electric leaf blower. I actually need a new weed eater so I’m looking at a Dewalt combo for that.
I have some orange flat cones to set up a track after I use the leaf blower to clean the dust. No other track prep allowed.
I found a good spot that will be perfect until summer. Because it’s a boat ramp parking lot. No one uses it in fall winter or spring.
I used google earth to measure the track length with the parking lot paint. So quick set up make a couple passes and go home. Simple and easy to test and tune.
