Can anyone tell me if when your building 4 or 6 lane tracks with Carrera track if you have to have the outer edges for the track to mate up? I have tried 15deg,30deg.60deg none will fit together with no gap.
You use the border pieces on the outside of the lanes not "between" track pieces. You just fit the corner pieces side-to-side, they will "nest" together to make up to an 8-lane wide track.
These are the flat corner track pieces.
I'll take a picture of the problem and put it up.................Allan is the any way to tell what angles the track is? I think its possible that may be the problem. Some of the track came in a set and some I bought off of E-bay. That may be the problem they may be diffrent angles. Thanks for the help guys
If it's the new track with no connection tabs on the outter edges of the track, you will see the curve number molded into the track. If it's the older track design with "Exclusive" molded into the bottom of the track, you will likely have to guess about which piece it is. Is this banked track or flat track?
I had a problem with the R1 outside shoulders when I installed this on R1 curves in 2008 year.
The shoulder didn´t fit perfectly on the curves. It was a gap between the shoulder and curves.
I must to grind approximately 1.5 mm on the right side on every shoulders for perfect fit.
R1 curves were produced in 2007 year, shoulders were older.
I'm a little confused...I've personally used old and new Carrera with old and new borders...it all works fine, just as you would expect. Obviously you can't lay banked next to flat track (as was already said)...and obviously you can't nest an R1 to an R3 or R4 (also said). And obviously you only put the borders on the outermost or innermost curves. That being said...anything else will work just fine. To have 8 lanes...then every turn must be R1/R2/R3/R4 (btw...it doesn't matter what the angles are...not at all, just the radius). To have 6 lanes...then every turn must be either R1/R2/R3 or R2/R3/R4. It's not rocket science...*grin*
