first off, let me say the site is looking great!!!!
now to my problem. i built a 24' track last year out of 1x6 planks,,,custom start finish gate. after many, many failed attempts at getting it right, i finally got it to wear it needs (should i say needed) to be. cars were running smoothly and fast for the longest time,,,,,,,,that is until i received a big box in the mail,,,,,,the contents made the gears go crazy in my head.
i did a trade with a guy for a original 68 track set, well he threw in a ton of extra track. i immediately tore the track apart with big intentions of using the extra track to replace some of the stuff i didnt really care for. that was my first mistake,,,,,the older track has lower sides on it, and the cars would fly off immediately. i adjusted the angle of the start gate and everything,,,still nothing.
so i went back to the old system that i was using. my problem now is that i got rid of the adhesive i was using (velcro tabs) and have been trying find a alternate solution. tried brad nails,,,,small screws flush mounted,,everything. the other issue is that the track stays in the shed when not in use,,,,,,and as we all know, when it gets hot outside, the inside of a shed is alot hotter,,therefore, any way of mounting the track i used before, the track warps and bends out of shape.
i cant keep it in the house,,,,,just no room for it.
what if anything can i use to mount the track down that will not result in the same problems im having now. im at my wits end with this dilema and am at the point of junking the whole setup and walking away from it. which is really a bummer, because thats the weeks big build up is race night,,summer racces are the best under the lights
so please please redline derby racing,,,pimp my track. (sorry there was a marathon on pimp my ride on today)
seriously any ideas would be great
