Granite Archer Raceways


I'm excited to announce Granite Archer Raceways!

(I've been having a lot of trouble finding a machine shop that can build GAR track sections to my standards.
Fortunately, after a year of searching, I think I have found one.  We are hoping to start receiving pieces
sometime in Feb. '07.  Thanks for your patience, Brad & Mike)

- GAR track sections are 4 lane, sectional pieces of track that can be set-up and torn down much
  like standard HO track (Tomy, Tyco, Mattel, Life-Like).

- GAR track sections are designed to connect together via my "bowtie" system.

- GAR track sections also incorporate my "tongue and groove" joints for smooth transitions.

- GAR track sections come only with Tomy sized rail for "magnetic full downforce" effect.

- GAR track sections utilize the exact same 3" geometry standard that Aurora developed
  and 1" lane spacing that Tyco used.  So duplicating your existing circuit should be NO problem.

- GAR track sections are programmed into the latest version (v3) of Tracker 2000.
  So you can design your track using that software.  Visit www.slotrace.com for more info.

- If you design a track in Tracker 2000, then just send me the .tr3 file, and I'll know exactly
  what track sections you'll need from looking on the T2k "info" page.

- Each and every section of GAR track has the capability of being wired up for a power tap!
  So no "power terminal section" is needed and you can incorporate as many "jumpers" as you
  you have track sections (if you like). No soldering necessary.

- GAR track sections have an added extra inch on each edge of the roadway (the apron)
  to allow the cars to get sideways without falling off of the track.

- GAR corner choices are vast.   Starting at what you'd know as a 6"/ 9" combo
  (we call a 10" because of the added 1" apron), in 1" increments all the way up
  to a 31" radius corner!

- GAR straights come in many choices too.
  In 3" increments starting at 3" and going all the way up to 48"!

  Here's a design done with Tracker 2000:

Please note:  Tracker 2000 only shows two lanes, but Granite Archer Racways are 4 lanes wide!
