Boy they are flying! So much progress just in a day! What kind of camera do you have? Beautiful quality
You may be, my lucky star! I'm the luckiest by far!

A Sony Cybershot that's a 9.1 megapixel. I also edited the photos a little as well.
I plan on stopping by again tomorrow afternoon before work to see if the next lift support is up.

Yeah I wasn't sure the colors seemed kind of bright. I have a pretty old Canon Powershot 6 Megapixel that is slowing down, the last update was with that. I'm too poor to get another camera though.

Did someone really compare this layout to Desert Race? If you wouldn't mind, could you please go punch whoever that was? You're Welcome.

From the early top down plans it kinda-sorta looked similar, but obviously that isn't the case. :p

Also, this project just shot up my "things to watch" list after this update, it's looking really cool!

That hill strikes my support fetish in an odd way. I wish they'd just put one more in there. But I guess you don't need much when in that area particularly, the track just needs to be held DOWN. This looks wonderful.

I honestly was originally kind of disappointed with the simple figure 8 track layout but now looking at it, it looks like it will be a great ride.
