My name's Ben and I live and work in Surrey. I got my first Scalextric kit this xmas with a size 4 Touring Car set from Argos. I'm also about to purchase a used size 4 Le Mans set from a friend to increase my inventory of cars etc.
Along with the sets, I've also got RMS (few problems here, will post elsewhere) and the Challenger system which seems to work well.

Seen posts from "Wankel". Hi mate, I also own a Wankel, http://jaffacake.net/b3nrx.jpg can I get one of these in a Scalextric car?

Quick question. Where do I find RMS stuff on this board?

I'm having getting the ends to meet on tracks that work in real life.

I built the included "Track 2 sport" layout and then tried to draw this as a new track in the designer. The ends still didn't meet.

What am I doing wrong? They're only a tiny bit out, but it works in real life.

Have you clicked the Join button. This joins up loose track (within reason).

Yes, it keeps telling me to insert an extra section of track.

I can't even draw my own "Track 2 Sport" equivalent.

Can you send me the .trk file of the track that youare trying to build? You find it in the C:\Program Files\Scalextric Sport RMS\tracks directory.

OK, that's a glitch in the software. Circuit 2 and 3 don't seem to join up right. Even the helpfile is no help. Circuit 4 is fine.

I've had no problems with larger circuits.

Not particularly impressed then. It's a pretty basic circuit and I'm currently running on circuit 2 or mofified version of it.

Not much use in RMS if I can't join the ends! Any tips?

Well the Race management still works, even with the plan as it is. It knows the length of the track from the pieces.

This really does well with larger tracks wich are complicated to design on paper.

To be honest, I bought the RMS cuz I'm a computer geek and it just had to be done.

Also, the Touring car set doesn't come with a lap counter or timer so RMS is helping with that.

Racing with it is great fun, especially with pit stops. Been doing 35 short-lap races with my girlfriend on a 3 stop strategy. Great fun.

If you concentrate on driving really quickly, it's so easy to forget to pit.

Oh, well that uses up my IT advice.

Where are you in Surrey? I work in Epsom but live in Sussex.

Would you believe it? Probaly if you've found other Toyota people on other forums.

Wing 2, 1st floor all they way down the end. Can't miss me, mine's the office full of model cars. ext7266. Come and say hello sometime.
