Hey guys, I have created a homemade start gate out of hot glue and it works pretty well but I was wondering if any of you have made your own homemade start gates and if they worked well or not.
I used playdough for my molding material (hot glue doesn't stick to playdough) and pressed two hot wheels lanes into it to make my mold. I had to widen the lines in the playdough so that the hot glue could fit into them. I then filled the entire mold with hot glue ( which takes a long time and your fingers hurt afterward) and put down cardboard to make the ground smooth under the cars. Then I mounted the start gate on pieces of coroplast to make it slanted for better starts. I cut our a section of all three walls and inserted a piece of coroplast that i pull up to start the races.
