I negotiated (more like whined and complained) and I now have a good sized space in the house to keep my track set up all the time! I'm really looking forward to finally getting things organized and rolling downhill more often! I'm turning to the group to help me get the Steele-Mill Speedway set up!
If you had a $100 budget, what would you add to your track or workspace to make it better, more functional, or more fun?
Here is what I already have: Some cars (duh...will buy more), sloppy starting gate is on the way here now thanks to Smitty!, 80ish feet of orange track, a bunch of HW stunt track stuff thanks to Santa...jumps curves loops etc, a Max Traxx finish line, 10' stainless steel ramp for 2 lane drag racing which also doubles as an open track(!), comfortable chairs/seating, a coffee table/workbench, internet access, a bluetooth speaker (for my tunes *air guitar solo), and a really good lighting setup for videos and pictures. Although modding cars is not in my immediate plans, as I do guitar repairs it looks like I already own all of the hand tools needed for doing simple mods (Vice, files, wire cutters, Dremel etc.). I also have easy access to the kitchen so I don't need a fridge. I'm in pretty good shape as is, but...I have $100...!
About the name: I live in the Steele Creek area if Charlotte NC and my business is in the neighboring community of Fort Mill SC. So "Steele-Mill Speedway":
