I found a track packer that compresses the .dat which makes the file a bit smaller.  The WinMip and Doodater that I used when making a 'new' track wouldn't compress so they'd come out bigger.  I'm going through the tracks and repacking them and while doing so adding the older looking TSOs to some and other things.
I'm going to change the chassis to 1 for a bunch of tracks so they can be used with the GN63/SNSC70/GN69 mods and am testing a bunch to get the tire wear, heat and grip so 2 tire stops are feasible and lap times are close to accurate with race day weather.  (Did you know they raced in weather other than 70 degrees and clear?!) 
If anybody can find a picture of the Darlington chicken coop, I'll take it!!  I'd like to get all the past projects off the plate and the only thing Darlington really needs is the chicken coop.  I think I already got rid of all the caution lights and the pits should all be good to go but I'll check again.
Looking around for interesting things I came across some -1969 - 1971 Rule books - http://aerowarriors.com/cgi-bin/rulesearch/ksearch.cgi? (and there are more from 1960 through I don't know when).

This is all I could find on the Darlington "chicken coop". I might be able to find you a better pic later, we'll see.



I hope this helps!

Hi Dave!  That's the 'new' press box of the late 60's.  I found some pics and videos of the old 'chicken coop' but can't seem to find the pics again...  I think I saved them.

(1 minute & 1:25 mark)
(35 seconds or so)
And it looks like I never did get the back stretch pits assigned correctly or the light removed...   :-(  But, I might some day!!  :-)

I never made the chicken coop so I stuck the 1969 press building in the GN64 track. It still needs work but it'll do for now.

Get it here - http://www.deltasimracing.com/Files/Tra ... n_GN64.rar

Delete the old version first or at least the .ptf or it won't work with the server.
