If you are meaning about the merge then that will more than likely happen.
My intention is to have a barrier leading up to the merge close enough to dissuade the car from tailing too much but not close enough to allow the car to ride around the barrier.
This way if the car does drift it will be controlled to within the lane upon exit.
Maybe it will start at 100mm and come down to 50mm at the merge itself to push the car back online if necessary.

I guess if you go hard enough you could cause conflict anywhere around the four lane section, but no different to four lane racing really.

I looked at it and saw two tracks rather than one. If you put in a manual deviation switch you can use it as both short track and long track.

Embs,

Didn't know your witchcraft extended to reading minds.
I had considered a manual switch to create a speedway on the outer ring only for testing (two lane) and may still go down that route.
That would mean the barrier I mentioned in my response to IATW would have to go.
Still I like the idea though.

It's got merit. Not sure what particular style of racing you're into, but there are always times when you just want a simple blat with mates.

If you do go that way, seeing as it's digital, might it be worth dropping a third lane into the short track?

Taking Ember's & SR's advice, here is the umpteenth and I believe final iteration.
I'll attempt to alter the sensors in the APB to suit 100mm lane width but lane changers are going in as is from start of track piece to the crossover.
Lane width will narrow to scaley width in this area.
OK for 1:32 but will be squeeze sections for mini-z upwards.

This is it folks .... get some tax money together and away we go.

I think that Scorpius used to have the photo transistors that suit the scalextric recievers...
You could then just solder them in parrallel to the original sensors and have the sensor board wherever you like.

I'm retiring this thread in favour of a new one soon to start, as this has soon many iterations.
In the new thread I intend to try a step by step for new builders including materials, costs & techniques etc. in the hope that it might help out others that may think it beyond their skill level.
I hope for expert input from the likes of Shadow_Rusty for electronics and Ember for landscaping as well as the other experts on board.
See y'all on the other side.
Cheers Grant
