hi just thought i would post some photos of my first routed track its 4x2ft single track a small rally track just to try out how to build and what to use







a few photos of different stages of the build hope i uploaded correctly a few teething problems with the sharp curve but getting there.
while the paint was wet i put a dry sand and cement mix on it to try and give the car extra grip its better than than smooth paint.

Well done Jason,

You have some neat/tidy curves in there and a cross over for added complexity. very good for your first effort.


You know that you will be bitten by the bug now, don't ya.
The satisfaction that you gained from the project will force you into building bigger and better tracks...
Don't fight it, just go with the flow.


What are you gonna use for power?

Nice effort Robbo,

I race HO, is it possible to create a routed track for HO cars, or are the front pins to a bit to small?

Nice track

The best way to post a video, is to upload it on to YouTube.
Then copy the video ID the bit that follow the V= in the web address bar. Then click on 'insert: YouTube' down the lefthand side of the post reply page. An paste the video ID in the box that pops up.
Simplz

Looks better for the sanding Jason, much smoother.

Because the radius of those 2 corners is so tight, you may get even better performance if you sand 2 or 3mm from the rear of the cars guide flag?
That's what it looks like to me anyway.

Will you be adding any scenery to this, or was this just a taster before "The Big One".
