Hi,

I am in the process of designing a wooden routed track and I was wondering what you guys thought the lane spacing should be between the cars....I was thinking about 3.5 inches, but not sure if this is enough? I wil be running mainly RTR cars.

Also what is the minimum radius for a corner. I want to make a tight hair pin but don't want to make it too tight!!

3.5" is ok for 1/32, 6" rad is the minimum size for a curve as some of the scaley cars with the self centering guide are reluctant to negotiate this size of bend .The Dalara is a prime example on the 6" rad at Pendle you have to carry a lot of speed into the bend or it will just pop out ,get it right and your a winner.

Good luck with your track
