Welcome RR1, the track looks great and is certainly an unusual theme. How about more trac details?
It is Carrera right? Looks quite big, what are the dimensions etc.

Thank you for all your compliments!

Here is additional information on the track layout.



Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Looks really great.Judging by the plan there is still some of the circuit you need to photograph.

Great stuff.

The elevated areas makes it a little hard to follow on the diagram

I'll try to take some additional photos and post them ASAP.

I have also added some additional scenery since I took the photos last week.

Thanks again,
Bob

MattZani,
I was trying to continue the speed from the striaght around the curve. Do you think it should not be banked?

Well actually about 10 Rite Aid stores. I was trying to find buildings to scale and that were business type not racing. They had some nice stuff at great prices and I can always take the Xmas stuff off the buildings after the holidays and trim the trees of snow.

I am just curious.
I don't really understand why some people from the UK don't like banked tracked. I know that Carrera is one of the few that make banked track and that Carrera is not that popular in the UK.

But I grew up with banked track in all the slot car racing tracks that I went to. It's a great way to sustain speed around a corner and if you have a smaller straight away like my set it allows me to keep the speed up coming out of the the short straight. Am I missing something??

I don't particularly like the look of banked track. I'm more interested in tracks that have a more realistic appearance. Most 1:1 road courses don't have banked turns, at least to the degree that the Carrera track is banked. I suppose if one were modeling a superspeedway like Daytona or Talladega, banked track would look prototypical.

On a practical note, some cars will drag on banked turns. That being said; everyone has an opinion and often they're not the same. It's your track and you should go with what makes you happy. You've really hit the ground running with your track. It's sounds like your having a lot of fun with it and that's the goal for just about everyone here!
