It's Royal Blue in color...I just read today that as of June the Blu track Pro will be molded in gray, but the specs will be the same. When I'm done I just roll it up and put it back in the box. It has tab at the start end with a hole centered on the tab. I just drilled a hole in my ramp, ran a machine bolt up through the bottom and fastened it with a washer and wing nut. I have never had problem with it not conforming (flattening out). Infact if it's warm it conforms too well. You will create mini jumps if your track bed is not flat. The track is 3.85 inches wide and the lanes are 1.65 inches wide. I can run all standard Hot Wheels on it. I can't say that for my orange track. I think you can get all your questions answered at this link.
Thanks for that info...one more thing, any problems with cars wrecking on the track during a race? Or can you do a race without any wrecks happening?
If you get it level you can eliminate just about all wrecks. I noticed you have a nice road bed for your track. That should cure most of the problems.
My finishline is 34ft down the track and most cars are still moving pretty fast at the finish line. Thats why I needed an electronic gate. My end of track bumper is about three feet past the finish line and there is still pretty good impact. That's why I would like a double u-turn at the end. Unfortunately there very few track accessories for BluTrack.
So how long is your starting ramp...and when the cars hit the straight away, are you saying that they have 34 ft of flat track to race and battle on? I know in a previous post you stated that the ramp was 6 1/2 feet high Wow...those cars must be screaming when they make it to the bottom of the ramp. I would really like to see some pictures of your setup. Also do you set this up outside, or are you blessed with a BIG inside room?
Sorry, I just read, where you said that your ramp was 7 ft...still I would like to see some pictures of this BEAST!
I'll try to get it set up this weekend and get my daughter to film a few runs. Maybe get it posted on youtube so you have a look.
For now I have only set it up inside. It runs from the dining room, through the foyer and across the living room. I end up with about 30ft from the beginning of the kicker to the finish. I have some stability issues where my floor transtions from carpet to tile back to carpet. I have to put something small like a piece of cardboard under the track to keep it smooth through those areas. High speed + small bump = jump.
Now we're talking
