Amazing drifting! Skid pads are a thing of beauty when made right.
Great job man!
A short video clip of what happens when the cars come in too fast. youtube.com/shorts/Df2JoROtQ6E?feature=share
So I decided to attempt another turn on the skip pad track. And keep the exit at the same spot..youtube.com/shorts/ugTJC00LPwY?feature=share
It was too tight and making contact on the back wall. So I moved the countertop forward an inch for a little more room and I lowered the angle of the entry ramp.youtu.be/szZ0xA9skPI
And there still wasn't enough room still making contact on the backwall. And that's as far forward as the countertop could move. Then I thought to myself how much room do I really need. And decided to take a video of the top track You would think I would have thought of that 1st. But I guess I'm not that bright.youtube.com/shorts/AHmslcyVd5s?feature=share
On that video I learned something the 4th car down the white one That was almost a 2 1/2 inch drift. So that meant the whole track needs to be moved. youtu.be/y1S36AvFyZg
So I moved both skid pads up 3" inches and the 2nd skid pad I moved 3 1/2 inches away from the wall.youtu.be/y1S36AvFyZg
After I did that nothing was really running very smoothly the top or the bottom. So I made some more Adjustments in the heights of the transfer track And I cut back the entry ramp on the 2nd pad.
So that's where I'm at I've got the top running a little better But I need some more speed coming to the 2nd pad. I need to eliminate that little bit of chatter the car are getting coming through the transfer track and I need to lower the ankled ramp just slightly on the 2nd pad. Other than that I think it's pretty close.
I have it running much better now.
I love these drift pads, would love to add one to the track one day
It is pretty cool watching them slide through the course . I need to figure out a scoring system Then I'll start some Hot Wheels drifting contest . And of course I still need to finish covering the new track. And thanks for all the support.
I've got a little work done.
