Im watching very closely to see what you do next. Suddenly, having previously been happy with my layout, I have now decided that a few of my corners are a little boring.... Lets hope I still have enough fingers to type tomorrow!
My own idea which I would like to use but have not as yet managed is to...... take 2 pitlane pieces and align them so as to make a 4 into 2 exit.
Now if you were to cut bothepieces down the middle of the straight slot and put the other bits together you would be left with a 3 into one lane narrowing.
My other idea was very similar with 2 XLCs. Again align like a 4 lane 'interchange' and cut down the inner rails. Taking out the smaller bits in the middle and put them together. We have moved from 4 lanes to 3. This should allow both outer lanes an option to the centre at the same time. You would have to engineer the middle flipper as to how you wanted it to work ie. forced onto the 'racing line' with an option to go the other way. Im not sure you could make a car in the middle go straight on. Following????
Proposed position is a 3 lane SF line. Off the grid (cars in lanes 1 and 3) all cars could have an option to break to the centre or avoid a stalled car (false start penalty) in a relatively short strech of track and making it fairer and more realisitc.
You may need to re-read it - I did!
Lars - Can I just ask what you are using to cut the track pieces? A clean cut makes for more accuracy and a better finish.
