    I was just perusing the FB marketplace. This track just popped up. It's cheap enough that you could spend $250-$300 on shipping and it still might be a good deal. Or, if you're anywhere near the east coast of VA, you should look into this.

    Deals on used tracks are hard to find (believe me I know):

    The timer is showing four lanes, the start section is three, so would need to figure that out. A three lane 35' with the timer is $1,400 new.

    A few days is right. I bought a 2 lane in similar shape and after about 20 hours of sanding and polishing it's still not perfect, but it's close. I'll not do that again.

    I mapped it out and it was 7 hours away from me. And then I reached out to the Cub Master I knew and his scout aged out of cubs and entered boy scouts; so he is no longer the Cub Master. I ultimately decided not to get it. It was a Freedom track and would not be good for league racing. I did talk to the buyer for a bit and explained to him what he had. He had no clue. He did say other than dirt, dust and finger prints, the track was nearly flawless. While it was a good deal, I did suggest he raise the price. I know, it was a great deal for someone. He only raised the price by $100, so now it's $299. He seemed like a nice person; I hated to see him not get a fair price. $299 for that setup is still outstanding. I hope it finds a good home.

    Yeah I reached out to him as well just to ask brand and actual footprint set up. This was when this post first came out. He really did seem like he didn’t know what he had which in all honesty scared me off anyways. Going to stick to the plan of a single lane test track from BT and timer from Chuy. Much less than shipping and/or the gas and resources to go get it. Plus a new proven track. I hope he does well selling it. Really just curious to know how he came upon it.
