there is always a warm side and a cold side, switches around depending on the weather, our temp range here is -1*c during night in winter to around 25*c during summer but average temps are 10*c to 20*c, so I have a fan and a portable gas heater, this started in sept 2016, build took around 4 months to get the track to a position where we could use it, and its still a work in progress, lots more pixs to come.
Wow those are some mild temperatures 1C/30F - 25C/77F on the extreme side. I could certainly live with that. Typical winter to summer temperatures in North Texas range from 3C/25F - 37C/100F. I am enjoying the pictures.....thanks for sharing.
Latest pix of the track from last nights racing, Sandfly picked up the inline win with the Silver Challenger, sg+. As my fastest cars are on their way to AlPinks I was just making up the numbers. Mustang Paul is in the same boat. It was mentioned a few times last night that out of the 11 classes we race the Will's boys hold all the records, these guys have way to much free time on their hands.

Sandfly I really enjoyed you sharing the construction sequences of Sandfly Alley. A lot of hard work with Epic results. To my benefit I've learned some Kiwi lingo along the way from you, KiwiDave and MustangPaul. Here's a example... my neighbor used to be a electrician, now I refer to him as a Sparky😁
"Nostalgia Top Fuel Racing" Hours and Hours of tedious monotony punctuated by " 5 SECONDS OF SHEER TERROR"
not sure on the race fuel, it seems to evaporate, gone gone gone
Perhaps Dave was thinking of racer fuel (beer) instead of race fuel.
yes he was and boy it don't last long in the fridge, gone gone gone, a box of beer here costs any where from $18.00 for muddy water to near $50.00 for a 24 pack of Heineken, craft beers are sold by the 6pack usually and can be around the $20.00 range, don't matter what it costs it still gets drunk, except for muddy water don't touch that. One of my sons said beer isn't beer unless its over 5%, never a truer word said.
Track looks good. I thought you were building it at warp speed. Seems you were taking pictures along the way. Nice job. Maybe you can hold a 1-2 race when KiwiDave has one of his events.
Gday Mate!! Not sure if that's Australian, Kiwi or both???
LOL I too thought that those were live (daily) pics!!! LOL I always forget that seasons are opposite on that side of the equator. the range of temps previously discussed are tolerable. we range from about 10F to 95F here. sorry too lazy to look up C equivalents . I agree with having some other races at the various tracks for us "topsiders" in conjunction with kiwi's races in future. Great Idea. keep the shiny side up and stay between the ditches.
