Hi!

Today when I was swiming
an idea appear in my mind: why any factory produce a straigth with one meter long?
For long straigths less pieces would be used, saving energy and improving the speed of cars (I think!). The negative side I see is the package and storing this pieces.


Just a thought...

QUOTE Dont carrera do this allready

As far as I know the longest Carrera straigths are the three pieces to build the bridge.

...no, CArrera does not. They had double lenght straights in the Universal program and still offer them in teh Profi-line (1/40).
Longer straights would make sense - minimum double the length of the acual ones!
I'm routing the long straights by myself out of MDF - it's easy and much cheaper than purchsing lot's of standard straights

Will report and make pictures whe I set up the new track together with Swiss...

A double length straight has been proposed several times on different forums and it really IS a good idea. Support for it has always been unanimous, yet not a peep from the manufacturers, which is strange.

I think a full metre length is too much, though. It would be difficult to manufacture accurately and, as has been mentioned, packaging and transport would be quite problematic. I feel there would probably be quite a small demand for that length anyway.

But here is a vote for double length straights -definitely!
