Micro Machine track

dr_dodge Tuesday, 9/12/2023

While looking for cars randomly,

I found some cool track with crappy plastic trucks at the Dollar Tree

I am gonna see if it will build into something joust/drag

ya don't need more space, just tiny-er cars...lol

all my micro machines roll down it, just not fast

some cool stuff that I bought to make sidewalks out of
(which I plan on still)

going back and buying it all, and asking if they got a box in the back

maybe I'll put "sidewalks" down the whole bypass bridge

what scale is a micro?

found out, 1:160, and I can pull 10 ft (if I can get enough...lol)

thats 1600',  a short 1/4 on the sidewalks

(by the way the straights are only 2" long)

lovin' this

1:160 is N scale, in case you were interested.
Good score on the tracks.

Good evening,

this tiny track has stupid potential,

and micro machines are re-issuing, the death star (amazon) even has them

and well, that made the old stuff drop on ebay

I figured, if a car has enough speed to joust it will drag race testing,

but for now a joust with jams

(and questions, ask away)

12' total, just short of 2,000 feet in scale

wood work is done, now peg the track down and tune

it also comes apart into 5 pieces (in theory...lol)

cars in the infield made it there

fun stuff

birth of a raceway   the 1/160 dragway

the 1/160o dragway


a whole 'nuther class of cars to try to tune...

there WILL be races

built a tiny launcher,

testing going well,

these things haul on this track

this project is out of control,

It takes over 400 pieces to make the track,

staging lanes (drying)

and track end/crash box at the end

only running the emergeny vehicles out of the pack I bought,

I may try a fantasy semi finals

back to screwing and gluing...lol


  • nice progress! — FredD
