Hey Ken it might go faster if it is in the REV position  Grin
 
I have one correction the track is a little over 20 ft. long not 30 as listed.(typo)
 
here is a pic of the track seeing some action during the 2010 SE Regional meet

 we had lots of fun, even the spectators enjoyed the race!
 
Note the trophys are wall plaques---but very nice!

Cudos! Super nice way to have the whole family get involved!

77, dont worry it has gard rails so the worst that could happen is a little paint wear... lol..
and as long as it is AMC bodied,, it doesnt matter if it Stock or Modified...
