only six cars? that's a bit poor. But at least they're going the "easy upgrade" route. downside is, of course, the "following lane-changing car ahead" problem that comes when the actuator's on the track, not the car.
Why is the hornby lane spacing too close? even the big-boys of the hobby, the VMG can-ams and the fly trucks fit side-by-side on it without touching- I don' understand why a digital system requires a wider spacing.

Why does a track-operated lane change have to be on a corner? The way you're looking at doing it makes sense, but Davic switches on the straight. |Of course, hornby are using curve crossovers now, so it would ties it wih existing parts, but adrian said that the corssovers would "act as a chicane", which implies to me it being on the straight....
