I presume the problem is that the plastic insert inside the steel rails of the track, narrows at the joints ?

I recall we had a couple of sections do that when we had our Ninco club track, but it is a long time back, and I can't remember exactly what wee did.

 

The cure is probably a case of doing some combination of

 

a ) prising the rails slightly wider at the joints,

b ) shaving the plastic insert

c ) gluing the outer edge of the plastic insert to the rails so it doesn't close up.

Hi,

 

I have this issue as well.

 

Use course sand paper folded over in the grove to remove a little of the plastic, this takes a bit of time.

 

Also some guides, including the Scalextric guides, are slightly fatter than Ninco one's. So I use a bench vice to squeeze the guide to make it narrow. It does work!

 

I hope this helps,

 

Phillip.
