1. Plastic board that is used for the start gate was not drilled correctly. Easily fixed but as someone that uses a Bridgeport there is no excuse for it not lining up. Also had to make clearance for a pin used for the switch. It was catching the board and not letting the starting pole to go below the track correctly.
2. Glue used to hold the joined sections is on the track. Not something that should be happening.
3. Timer works great but the way it attaches to the track could be better.
4. I think a board needs to be added to the bottom of the track to keep the track level.
5. Tested two cars. They both go back and forth down the track. Not something I want to happen. I well get a level and check the track tonight.
My thinking is that the plastic track might give more bounce to the car when hitting the guide rail. I'm going to have to get the cars aligned so that they can stay against the rail.

Home depot has some thin pieces of cedar that would work perfect. I think you can get a pack of 12 for $24.00. I have used them to line my daughter's play house in the basement.
