All
I've persauded my wife to allow me to set up a perm track. Now I need help with the design. Below are the dimensions on the tables I'm going to use. Want a 4-lane Scaly Sport track with borders/barriers and room for a bot of scenery. I'm more than happy with over passes etc. but its main point is racing, so clear views essential.

I realise the pic is a bit basic but hopefully it is clear enough - if not let me know and I'll try to do better!

Any help/ideas appreciated

thanks
Matt

Hi Matt,

one thing i considered when designing mine was to make it eeasy to drive as most of my friends are not into slots but like to get inthere after a few beers.

John - I have to agree. I tend to build quite tricky circuits and I wipe the floor quite easily - good ego massager! However building simpler to learn circuits does make it that bit more even and therefore fun.

Fred - thats was quick - appreciated. I'll try it out tonight. I prefer more track to scenery. I've also got a little cubby hole along one of the straights, that I did not show, that I'm going to put a pit lane construction in

cheers
Matt

Fred
have set it up and made the esses wit R2 and R3 to make them a bit more of a challenge. It is easy to get in to a nice rhythm on the track and my mates can get up to a decent speed w/o coming off pretty quickly so it helps racing.

I'm some R3 short though so lanes 3/4 are incomplete. I'm selling some cars to justify a pre Chrimbo splurge on more track!

Will take some photos

You're busted....That's a big no-no to leave the controller like that..

Lucky for you it's laying with the adjusting knobs pointed up. If it was the other way, the knobs will short across the rails, and you will soon smell something burning. And it'll leave a bunch of neat holes in a row in your track. Don't ask how I know this...
