Perhaps I read it wrong but I want to defend "point and shoot" to a degree. In my current layout the chicane is difficult to get through as fast as possible but has little affect on lap times. If you want to turn a fast lap you need to maintain your speed going into the tight corner after the straight and quickly accelerate at the right moment.Basically, what you're wanting is what we call a "point and shoot" track. Lots of straights connected by turns, not so much combination turns requiring subtle variations of speed to get the best lap.
Trust me... I'm interested. Whether it best relates to my objective is another story. I will say in my original Track Plan thread "input" resulted in countless revisions and I believe I ended up with an initial layout that would have taken me three or so generations to achieve (by myself).Do understand that track design software isnt a perfect indicator of driving experience..but am not really sure what this thread was about as you aren’t interested in input from others it seems ..
Great advice.Charles before i built my first track i asked for a lot of input from various friends who had a lot of experience. I think the best advice i got was from a well known manufacturer who gave me 3 bits of advice.
1) have at least 1 long straight so the cars can let their legs out.
2) Make an interesting design as you will soon be bored of something too simple.
3) DO NOT have anything in the design that will on its own cause offs.
As for Item 3 having a curve under an overpass is one of those things that by design can cause offs due to loss of visual on a curve.
