New 30cm RCP Tracks, Black/Green Edition for Home!

With the gap in Kyosho supply chain in these days I have some time to kill before the Camaro ZL1 unpainted bodies hit NA, same for the AMG as well so looking to spice things up a bit at my home track in the meantime with a new track! Yes, I ordered a new 30cm track kit to test/trial at home. It's the Rcp Tracks 30Cm Double Oval kit with grey tiles and black/green rails. The tiles have an embossed texture on one side to replace the rough textured finish and flip side remains the standard smooth finish. As I want to maintain the Mini-96 layout, I had to order the Double Wide Oval and Oval Wide to get enough of the correct tiles to make the Mini-96 layout and will just shelve the blanks and extra's for the time being.

Naturally with new track color comes a new timing bridge! If your going to change one, need to do the other right?! I have the aluminum channel on order already and reconnecting with Brian Swayney to get a bridge support in black to match the straight side rails and picked up Krylon Fusion Gloss Jungle Green for the bridge channel to coordinate with the turn rails just as my red bridge channel does now. Reconnecting with I-Lap RC as well for appropriate decals and looking to try some new things on this channel. Well, some things I have not done in some time and using more stencils vs. hand cutting stuff which is crazy time intensive. Therapeutic work at times but takes up so much time and Xacto blades. I look forward to sharing with everyone the new work and to seeing the new colors available for RCP as well. I have love/hate relationship with the prior limited edition grey 50cm Wide L tracks and hope the same issues don't creep up as they've had some years working with the color now in manufacturing.

Her is a photo oy my current timing bridge for home track in traditional RCP color coordination.
