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.

QUOTE (LMP04 @ 21 Mar 2004, 15:17)The only thing that is slightly dissapointing in my opinion is the racing crossovers, I tend to brake during the corner rather than before, and often end up stalling between the rubber bits where the lanes cross.
The last of the late brakers, eh?
Well, such is the way of most posts on SF, someone will disagree with you. I'm going to disagree
I think the curve crossovers are far better and smoother than the old ones on the straights - if the straight ones had been constructed from 2 pieces of track rather than one, maybe they would have been better.

Anyway, having fun racing is the main thing

haha. I've never competitivly raced (except a scalextric wagon in the toys r us car park
) so I can't compare myself to anyone else. It's probably because I'm using standard cars with magents? I have no idea.

Actualy, since I posted that, I only experienced that problem 3 times in my afternoon testing.

Back on topic, I am also impressed with my lap counter. Since my new computer forgot to have a COM port I couldn't use my RMS, so i got a lap counter/timer. I'm really pleased with it. That's probably not much use for clubs, but for me and my two lanes it does the job perfectly.
