Joe Pecoraro’s track
This week we received some photos from one of our regular customers, Joe Pecoraro, of Binghamton, NY. Joe’s track is a 96-foot 4-lane Scalextric layout made from a combination of Sport and Classic track. He built the track in November of 2010 in his 600 square-foot finished basement.
For power Joe uses four power packs with each lane powered separately. He plans to convert soon to a Pyramid power supply so he can turn down the voltage. He has equipped the track with Parma controller that plug into phone jacks but when he switches power supplies he will switch over to alligator-clip connections, making it easy to accommodate a wide variety of controllers.
The 8×18 foot table rests on a 2×4 framework with 4×4 legs at each corner with 2×4 legs in the middle for additional support. The framework is assembled with metal brackets.
Joe doesn’t run organized events on his track but he does drive an hour and a half every Thursday to a track in Pennsylvania to race with a club. He’s been trying to put together some competition in his local area, so if you live in or near Binghamton, NY, e-mail Joe at
Joe reports that he has around 150 cars in his collection, at least half of which he bought from us here at Electric Dreams. Thanks, Joe, for shopping with us and thanks for sending us the photos!
