Hi,

I am finding that my track slides on my MDF baseboard very easily causing problems.
Should I just use some of the Scalextric clips and hold in down in a number of places?

Thanks,
Simon.

If you are using borders then I would just nail through a few of those and that way you are anchoring the track but still able to free it if you need to tackle problem joints or something.

or pop a few panel pins up against the edge of the track in a few places. Don't overdo it, as I found the track expands and contracts quite a lot, much to my surprise.

I use strips of GripMat. I've found they work best when placed under track joints, and for standard straights halfway along as well.

Thanks.
Will get my nail gun out and use a few email brads; maybe even cut a couple of small pieces of MDF as holders.
