Wow !!!

You must have a bit of cash to flash with that many lane changers.

Why so many ?

Are you just drawing-in all possible positions...
...from which to decide on the final selected positions ?

Cheers

Si.

I assume your using Sport track or is that Ninco ?

I love your double-apex chicane type complex at the centre of the 'L'.

That should be a blast to drive.
They really sort the men from the boys !

More time won or lost in those sections, than on the straights; just like the 1:1

Cheers

While no expert on track design the problem with this track may be visibility. However you look at it the pit is going to obscure 2 straits whichever side you view it viewing from a short side is not really practical.

Trust me, you don't need so many lane changers. One at the end of each long straight is plenty. The one in the middle of that long striaght will be useless. Since most can't be taken at full speed, putting them where you're already slowing down is best.

Hi Wookie

You could have triggering probs. with the 'X' changer after the pits.
You would do better to move it along a bit.
Why follow this imediatly, with a curve changer ?
You could just use 1 here.

The 'X' changer on the 2nd from bottom track, parallel to the pit-entry, may have the same trigger issues.
You could move it along a bit.

Personaly I favour more 'C' changers, than 'X' ones, but choosing which direction one to buy then becomes an issue.
Outside-to-in, L or R, would be my answer to that, but depends a bit on the track-map

Cheers

Si.
