This weekend I spent some time trying to figure out the best way to do the track. I purchased 20 ft of single-lane track from Wal-Mart and my original plan was to have the track start on a 6ft board that Stubz Jr. already uses as a track then attach 8-inch wide cardboard sections (cereal boxes seem to work fine). I knew I wanted the track to be long to give enough time in each race for possible lead changes.
I turned to Google and YouTube to find ideas. I came across a video of a Hot Wheels club in Ohio (I never knew such a thing existed until TheresGabe told me he used to be in a club in Utah) and they had a cool track that was black and curved and allowed for some interesting races. I did some more research and found that the track was made in the 70’s by Hot Wheels and was called a Sizzlers Fat Track. So I looked on ebay and found some and it should get here any day.
This track will connect to 3 lanes of my current track and will be the first 16ft of the race track. With the help of some nephews, I plan to create a really long track either at my house or a park with a big hill. I am including a few videos that are my inspiration for my EPIC track.
PS – I want to get my hands on a car with a camera so I can get some cool footage for the video. They are $30 on amazon. Should I do it?
Most of my track might end up like this.
