Re: Best Track Mods

I had purchased BestTrack's leveling kit when I bought my track but I had to modify the kit to compensate for my uneven basement floor. There's a floor drain and the floor is sloped towards the drain so I had to add some extensions to the feet in the middle of the room. I made them about 6" long so...

Single Lane Start Lane Rotation

Our District has used this peculiar schedule method for years now. I've not seen it anywhere else so for that reason I have dubbed it the Single Lane Start Lane Rotation schedule. We race on a four lane track....so we start with one boy on lane 1...next heat said boy advances to lane 2 and a new boy...

I use Pledge multi surface formula and microfiber towels. Takes all the grime off.

Simply put, the contents of your file can look like this 4 lane example, where each line is a heat: 1,2,3,4 2,3,4,1 3,4,1,2 4,1,2,3 For Versions 15 and below, those numbers must start at 1 and go up to the number of cars, with no number gaps. for Versions ...

Re: BestTrack clean/polish

Our BestTrack is 4 years old and had never been cleaned, except for dusting. It's stored in a wooden box, but in preparation for this year's pack and district race I was surprised at how dirty it was! My son and I cleaned the entire track with Simple Green and a sponge this weekend. That removed th...

Re: Supplies for sale (tools, materials, parts, etc.)

Hello all, My son finished cub scouts a few years ago and we're just getting around to cleaning out our old supplies. Some of these we used yearly, some not at all. Most of the car parts (bodies, prepped wheels/axles, fenders, etc.) were door prizes from different races he attended. $195 (via Paypa...

Looking for different race

In the past all of our Pack's dens have been fairly uniform in size with plenty of boys allowing for a first, second and third place trophy in each den. The last couple of years we have had two dens with only 3 boys in each....while the other dens having 8 to 12 boys. Myself I think it is kinda unfa...

Our District has a old wood/plastic 35 foot track some boy scouts built like 25 years ago with a timer. Our Pack is in our second year of using our track for the District Race and everyone loves...
