Hello guys.

I have two sets, a Digital Starter Pro (Porsche Cars) and a Grand-Am analog (Chevy Cars). I have three curves LC, a pitlane kit and two "Y" LC Starter set. Drawing on Track Power left me this:



This sequence Curve LC will work?

Sorry my bad english, I use Google Translator.

Cheers,

Tiago

It looks good to me. A good combination of straight and curvy sections that should flow very nicely. I have three suggestions based on my personal preferences:
  • I don't like to place a LC track section at the end of a long straight because it is easy to stall on a dead strip when braking hard into the turn. So, I would move the LC straight section at the end of the front straight to the other side of the first (90°) turn.
  • I would place one of the LC curve sections as the last (90°) turn just before the pit entrance. This way a last-second lane change is possible to get into the pit or to avoid a car that is exiting the pit farther down the front straight. You can then move the other LC straight section that is currently just prior to the pit entrance to replace the LC curve that you move.
  • The standard pit lane is usually too short allowing cars' momentum to carry them all the way through the entrance and out of the exit before stopping. You can add one or more single lane straight sections to lengthen the pit area.
Keep posting here on your progress.

Thank you Michael for your feedback. I really forgot the detail and dead strip where there is hard braking. Based on their suggestions did this based on sections that I have for now:



In the future, I'll buy the single lane sections to extend the pitlane and I'll use your excellent solution to the sensor multilane.

Surely I'll post my progress here. For now, I involved in the choice of materials to make a table to track suspended from the ceiling of the garage. It's hard to find through in a lightweight and cheap, I'm almost opting for doors with honeycomb cardboard backing.

Cheers,

Tiago
