If didn’t have the Policar track that I’m using right now, it would be a Scaleauto track , I think they’re the best for the money with club level specs and digital racing in mind (for the future).I've tested all the cars I have, which include stock Carrera, slot.it with wood or Carrera guides, and Scalextric with Frankenslot Carrera guides, and they all make it through both lanes without binding.
I haven't seen a whole lot about the ScaleAuto track, in spite of the US distributor being my LHS.

Well I don’t have (still) any piece of that track(Scaleauto) Greg, only what I have read and seen in the videos around the web.I haven't seen a whole lot about the ScaleAuto track, in spite of the US distributor being my LHS.

Found a video that’s spoken in English, hope this helps GregAlas, I do not understand Spanish, and the second video did not have closed captioning for me to turn on translation to English for. I look forward to being able to understand what he's saying, and maybe figure out if there's anything in particular about the ScaleAuto track that might make it any better for digital than Policar track. They both look to be exceptional track, of course. I also can appreciate the gray color of the ScaleAuto track, which is a sight for eyes sore from black track all the time.
It would seem to me, unless ScaleAuto is planning to provide digital pieces, that the differences between the two are not significant enough to exceed the convenience of Policar providing oXigen (and maybe SSD) compatible lane changers. That said, until the Policar lane changers hit the market, the point is moot... other than availability. I can get Policar right now, but I can't get ScaleAuto nearly as easily.
I understand that IBB Autoracing SL is the company that produces Scaleauto brand, it’s based in Spain and of course it has major distributors worldwide, PM is one of the most recognized Distributors in America, so it’s no surprise they actually have the track available at their store, fact the Northern Club around here gets lots of stuff from PM, almost everything that is Scaleauto comes from PM.I like the quality, but I don't really have much to compare it to except Carrera.
According to ScaleAuto's website, they have a digital double lane change planned looks like at the end of 2023. The compatibility with Carrera track enables all of the Carrera digital bits, so there is that already. I think the biggest advantages for ScaleAuto over the other tracks is that it is wide, as wide as Carrera, so it accommodates 124 and it has R1 through R6 curves. Running up to 12 lanes is certainly a club-friendly feature.
I ordered my track from Professor Motor in the US. They don't have the full range, but they were the only online supplier in the US that I could find.
I appreciate you looking for videos for me. That one was... not exactly what I was hoping to see.Found a video that’s spoken in English, hope this helps Greg
