As I was reading down, I was going to ask how managed to stop the grass growing, must be poor quality soil or something. However I note it has started breaking through now. Nice dirt colour

Tunnel deslots aren't a problem ( so far

) Left side I can stick my arm threw, The center section under Control unit, pillars are far enough apart to put my hand threw, the left side leading to middle section is the only tricky part.....I have a grabber arm that I can push the car threw but that doesn't seem to be a crash spot YET

Blind spots aren't bad either, If your standing on the right side of the track, you only have the left side under the over pass & standing on the left side vise versa.

It is fun to race on...not thrilled with middle section but being its Carrera & their R 1's are like a Scalextric R 2, I was limited. But Its still fun.

Cracking track you have there with a clever use of the space available.
Thanks...tried to shove as much track as I could without to many blind spots.

I wanted to up grade the power supply for better continues current flow (eliminate power spikes when someone crashes), and have an option to run 1/24 scale, any suggestions? Ive search the forum and haven't found anything recent on the topic....maybe Ill start a new thread on

Looks great, I can guarantee you're better off with Carrera track than Scaley.. Much better product overall.
