Thanks, rcphreak!

I try to keep the spirit of Erector & Meccano - simple design; easy to add & remove parts. Only need to remove 4 nuts and loosing 2 set screws to remove both gear boxes.

Its extremely fun to race on. The grip isn't quite as high as carpet and foam tracks which makes the racing much more forgiving. So we have extremely close wheel to wheel racing most of the time. Lanes are 22inches wide at the infield and 28inchs wide around the outside and we normally have 6 people racing at once but we've had up to 9.

All of us are using the standard plastic kit so not the pro model (yet). We made some of our own parts and modifications that make the cars handle much better for what we're doing with them and of course the body, its not easy fitting everything under there.

I love the bat mobile! I love custom made RC vehicles. Something that you need to do a little bit of design and engineering yourself on.

A friend of mine tried to make an RC car out of an old die-cast Jaguar model using old electronics like a mechanical speed control. He got everything in it but I don't think he ever got it working. This is the same friend who made that track I showed above (its his basement) and started the concept of those cars.
