  1. Thanks for the pic Flip. It's not the nicest looking turn in the world is it. Might just shelve the idea and stick to the tried an true parabolics. Thanks too Vinno, that sounds like a home track advantage kinda corner
  2. Thanks for the suggestions. Much appreciated. Yeah Bov I had a track a few years ago that was heaps of fun. It's gone to the great race track in the sky now. Getting the need to slot again though! I haven't got any plastic track to try the curve out on. Think I'll sketch it out in full scale (about 1200mm diameter) and see how it looks with a car our two sitting on it. Keep ya updated
  3. Hi Peeps, I'm in the early planning stages for a routed slot track. I've got about 4' by 18' to play with and am thinking of a 2 lane analog Bertrand 8 style track. Something like this to give a rough outline: Through the wonders of youtube algorithms this video got prompted to me today and I found it really interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBc827pwKf0 It got me thinking about making one of the big 180 degree corners at either end of the track an isochronus curve. Has anyone included an isochronus curve in their track? If so how does it run? And if not got any guesses? I tend to make my curves elliptical as I like a smooth transition from straight to curve. Do you think an isochronus curve would have an OK blend from straight to curve? Thanks! Andrew
  4. They look fantastic. Love the oval!
  5. Hi Chas, I got the strip in a kit from a fella called Luf and has the webpage Oldslotracer. Got a feeling he doesn't do the strip anymore but there is a link on his page to the person that now does.
  6. Went for 75mm to stop myself from blowing a whole lot of money on 1:24
  7. Thanks for the comments everyone. Been having heaps of fun building it. Was planning on putting the drivers stations beside each other along the length of the track. Roughly a metre or metre and a half per person. I'll give the end positions some thought though thanks.
  8. Hello! I'm having a go at a 3 laner in a narrow space. Track is gonna be up to 1.2m wide and about 7m long. Want a fairly easy track to drive to encourage close racing and not too many deslots as I'm lazy and don't want to get off my chair too often. Also got a couple of young sons so easy is good. Did a bit of research on the 1.2m width with the three lanes and it seems like the inside of the two 180 degree corners should be OK to drive. See what happens! Contemplated a squeeze section but ended up keeping it simple. I've been going for about 2 months so there are a few pics below. The space Framework Blank canvas Routing Routing done Elevations and banking (and imaginary driving!) Still got more elevations etc to do then move onto getting some side supports happening then paint.
  9. Thanks heaps Gazza. I'll try and get my head around it
  10. Hello all, I'm getting an itch to build a track again and am thinking of a single lane track with a reversing loop at each end for something different. Does anyone have a diagram on how to wire up the reversing loops? The topic has been covered extensively in the past on the forum but due to photo bucket problems the pics are not loading. Much thanks for any help! Andrew

    Hi Capri-corn, 7 and 10 would give you a run for your money I bet. Mine are 3 and 7. The 3 year old gets the fastest car and at lower voltages has got the hang of slowing for corners. Lets just say I don't need much handicapping in comparison to the 7 year old
