This is my (our) 1:32 Scalextric classic track at our club.
It started out as a birthdaygift (30 yrs) for myself and has grown into this in 2 years.
But I didn't have room for it so I put it all up at the club (www.ksrc.nu)
We also have an 1:24 Blue King.

The track is 26,8 meters long in all 4 lanes.
Fastest trackrecord is 7,227 sec with a FLY Corvette C5R.(we only count in records made by Magnatraction 2 cars...
the magnet is powerful enough to hold the car in a vertical way but not upside down...)
We use PARMA 45ohm handles wired with braking and SlotRaceManager system.

Give me your comments please

Looks like a fast, challenging track you have there! Welcome to SlotForum!!

To make marshalling easier you could cut the right corner of the table to follow the track more closely. You may want to make some scenery too, but that is up to you and your club members.

Have fun

Thanx...

It is a very fast track but with loads of difficulities in it.
We have tried to make a track that doesn't "age" as fast.

Thanx for the input

Hi fellow Swedes! Wellcome to SlotForum! I wish you were closer to me in Lund though


Looks like a really nice track, the only thing missing is some outer outer corners, for some big sweeping bends and borders all around. And some scenery of course!
But I'd come there everyday if I lived in the area! Sweet! Congratulations on a nice setup! I'd like to find a place like that around here...

Bastumannen:
Why don't you join the Swedish Scalextric club on the 3/4-04????
They're gonna have the first round of the championship on our track. More info on www.ksrc.nu
(I think the last roud in the championship is somewhere around you.....)
outer-outer corners wasn't in my possesion when we built the track. Borders is on the way...custom-made


regarding the scenary....
We talked about that and decided that the "club"-version is for pure racing and we wouldn't build anything on it.
It is easier without buildings if we want to change layout as well. One of the reasons that we didn't cut of the corner on the table as well

Thanx for the input

Hiya Catman.

I totally like it!. I had a play with your design and with a few more corners (especially the SCX outer outer corners) you could get it up to 30.5 metres per lane in the same space. Marshalling might be a problem though
unless you race crash and burn style.



Cheers

Hi Steve...
Glad you liked the track.....
The new layout you've made was awesome....gonna show it to a few members in the club...if it's OK by you ????

We do use the crash'n'burn style when we race GT-Specials and Rallycross.


btw...like your design at your hometrack. Really good work there

/Thanx

Absolutely, feel free. And thanx for the comments on my set up.

As you probably gathered, I like R1 curves for technical racing.

Cheers

Steve
