Here`s a nice bit of `60s nostalgia.
I`ve just added the Rocking Road track (x315) to my Jouef layout.
A well engineered piece. Childish, but fun!
Cheers,
Kev.

That looks fun, I bet the driver in second place would soon get a bit frustrated though. I seem to recall my old Race 'n' Chase set had something similar to this.

Thanks lads. They also did a "leap of death" track piece...can`t imagine that one ever going on the layout!
Cheers

Hello Kev, thanks for posting this interesting item. What sort of speed is required to run over this? Dead slow, slow, quick ??
Yeah it seems a bit tough on the car that arrives second, probably wouldn't have been too difficult for Jouef to do a split unit. No doubt this would end up with a game-play where each driver would wait until the last moment to trip the see-saw and max the "inconvenience" to the other driver.

Kind regards, Leo
PS, video please...

Hi Leo....sorry, but I`m a total numpty so I don`t know how to do videos.....

If you go to fast the rocking road just becomes a flying leap! I like to go up fairly slow so I can get the proper tipping action..I like the noise it makes....
I think that getting onto it 1st would be a bit of a game of chicken, if I had any mates to play with!


The track was made between 1968 & 1972.

Cheers
Kev
