Looking at David's great slot car purpose built building, has made me start thinking again about my own proposed much more modest set-up.

I really am getting a little disillusioned with Scalextric Sport track, every time I set up a temporary layout I seem to spend a great deal of time just trying to get the track to run properly, the joints seem pretty uneven and slot width is variable to say the least.

I'm very keen to see Jon's set up at Phoenix using Ninco track, as everyone who uses it seems very pleased with it.

Is everyone else happy with Sport? maybe it's just the track I've got, but at the moment I am very reluctant to buy anymore.

I would like to use Carrera but it is just too wide for the space I have available. Perhaps I really should consider routing my own, but I'm no great carpenter so it would require a steep learning curve, any router virgins out there who have gone through this process?.

I think I will have to get Luf's video to check out how he creates his superb tracks.

Not having driven on any track other than Carrera before I purchased Sport, I can't say much about anything other than Sport. I like it. I've not had any issues with connections, slots, or anything else. I did put about a million layouts together before my permanent, and didn't see any problems there either.

If you like Ninco, stick with it. I really think it is up to whatever YOU like. I built my track for me, not for a club, or other racers. They are welcome of course to come over, but any critisisms can be leveled at me and my technique, not the track itself.

As for the traction, my mags are either out, or modified, because I like tail sliding my cars.
