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.

This thread has come at just the right time for me.

I have been pondering which make of track for my permanent circuit and had provisionally decided on Scalex Sport. I have a fair bit of Ninco track already but was prepared to get rid of it as I've heard that on a larger track the Ninco Classic cars were prone to tipping rather than sliding as they do on Scalex Sport and Classic.

I had to reject Carrera as a 4 lane would take up too much space - a pity as I will be running quite a few 1960s 1/24 cars such as Cox, Monogram and K&B etc.

Reading this thread it appears that everyone is reasonably pleased with Ninco both from a reliability and performance point of view and the Scalex Sport is proving a bit troublesome.

Thanks for the advice.
