What are your feelings on R1/Tight bends?

Just curious as to what those with experience of putting together different track layouts have experienced with R1 bends/hairpins/chicanes?

As a severe Motorsport enthusiast I am mocking up layouts and very quick to throw one r1 combination bend somewhere in each layout I come up with if nothing elsefor variety and a different type of challenge.

I am worried with slot cars it may not be so much of a good idea?

Do they ruin the fluid tempo of a track with deslots or do you like having them there?

I am leaning towards trying them out but its an expensive gamble to blow money on them if thy are gonna cause hassle?

any thoughts welcome

come on on folks its all good fun!

Personally I prefer a technical looking track but as I am trying to build something large enough to maybe get something going locally with other people I was just trying to gauge a general consensus as I wouldnt want people turning up and disliking the R1's!

Well the final say will go to my son as Half the track is his!

Thanks for your input
wow I am REALLY going to regret saying "Fluid Tempo"
you folks know what I mean!

I'll be going with R1's both 45 and 22.5 and a few 22.5 R2's as well......
