So fresh & new I'm gathering cars and parts

WolfHound Monday, 9/11/2023

Hi all,

just want to say hi and thank you to redline derby.

i have been lurking the site for last few weeks after my son started collecting hot wheels and i found a few races on the you tube.

After watchin many races from various people from here I decided to try build a track to get me back in to modeling... used to have a OO/HO train set.

im only at the gathering parts stage like orange track and hard to find for me crash racers wide track.. mainly needed for the banked curves and some lined straights.

Just wanted to intoduce myself. and say top o the mornin to ya all.


I'm noob too! Still trying to figure out the go fast part!

Good luck with your track!

this my rookie year, (of many

first (crappy) cars went to 3d, been entering crappy cars ever since

(I Think) I built ~17 cars and have one more in line to finish this year,

and every host has been super cool to work with,

and I am getting submitted cars back!

like my birthday, randomly in the

I also do HO trains.  The backdrop of Jamestown bypass is 10 years of scratch building the layout.

HO/OO stuff works real well as background scenery stuff

as far as tracks,

there are plenty of alternatives, locally find-able, then crash track, too

plenty of old threads on that stuff

again, welcome!


  • Nice! I just picked up an S gauge train and a few sections of track... supposedly a little closer to 1/64 scale. Never had one that size so ot should ne interesting! — Stoopid_Fish_Racing
  • you could kitbash HO as a narrow gauge, I am gonna do a vid on outragous HO track radius' My trolley is HO flex and 1"-3" radius, the floating logging road close to the same. easily combinable — dr_dodge
  • I think Mark at Gravity Throttle is using S, maybe he can weigh in, his track work is beautiful, and a gopro will fit better than HO — dr_dodge
  • Are We Trackin"? — dr_dodge
