Eastlands Park Routed Digital...

Have been thinking about a routed track for a while now and as the current setup is now starting to become a little boring now seems a good time to start.

The table size I have to play with is 12ftx6ft and it will all be done on a single level,the only thing decided so far as regards to track design is that the pit area will have to be along the back straight and it must be long as I wish to have plenty of garage space.

The cars will only be scalextric and running mag free is a added bonus of going copper tape route as with them throttle control is none existent,so need to find a suitable paint for the tyres to have some sort of grip as they will be kept standard.

The track will be digital and it is my intention to sink the digital track sections into the mdf,including the pb..

I have had a quick look for layouts based on my available track size and drew a blank,so if anyone knows of any on here a link to some pics would be great.

Hi Ade
Hope with your skills your be doing it all freehand I hope .
I have been thinking down those lines too,
only so to make look and feel more real.
Why all on one level then?
regards ade

The router needs to be guided to cut the slot.
The most highly skilled track builders use a guided router and its even more important for the less skilled.
Trying to route slots freehand at best produces an inferior track.

Hi if I couldnt use a router freehand and follow a line I would have to sell all my tools and get another job.
