hy, i,m going to route a track.[my ninco has so many lumps and bumps where the grandkids walk all over it]. the space is 16ft by 6ft 2 lane. i only have 2 criteria, it must have a long straight at the back with 2- 5ft6in outside radius bends on each end of the straight. the middle can be filled with anything as long as the lap lengths are roughly equall. could someone point me in the right direction. thanks. john

If you are building a routed track why imitate regular fixed radius plastic track? It has already been pointed out that having equal length lanes does not guarantee equal lap times. Sometimes a car in a tight inside lane will loose momentum. Once the track is completed you can add a diode or two to reduce the voltage in the faster lanes if that turns out to be a problem.
