Track Type

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.

my experience with both systems (first had ninco and now sport) is that they are very different. the ninco track on the floor was much better (very good, maybe perfect connections) than sport.
now i've made my track on a table and then sport is good enough, because of the simple fact that the track is permanent.
the most pleasure with my ninco track was with racing with cars with an nc-1 motor, without magnet. because of the rough surface the acceleration of the cars is more aggressive.
on the sport track the cars drive much smoother.

my advice?
on the ground ninco and on a table sport or ninco if you prefer that type of surface(ninco takes more space for building the same track).
