The Starting Of My Carrera Track

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just started my own track at home in my garage. Heres my latest layout. Have a few more supports to make up yet. Will update along the way with any major changes. If you have any ideas, tips or questions, I"d be happy to hear them. Also if anyones near Raymond Terrace, just north of Newcastle, your more than welcome to come round and have a go.

 

Track is Carrera 1/32 1/24 digital. Only have the standard 14v power supply.

 

Cheers, Lloydo

Looks like a fun layout.

Any marshalling difficulties?

I have one of those grabby hand things to reach the middle. Done about 500 laps on it today and i think its pretty good. Although being a real novice I'd probably be happy with an oval track lol.

Gotta love a grabby hand thing.

Nice and complex track - fills all the space.

Dunno if you've ever thought about running trucks on your track Lloyd and wondering if there is enough clearance under your bridges just in case.

Hey Wobble, this is pretty much a mock up at this stage as i want to have a scenic type setup. Once i've decided on my final track design i'll make sure everythin g is going to clear. My bro in law is into trucks so i'm guessing they will be run at some stage.

Hello Lloyd,

Your track is looking good.

Yes Carrera track is nice to race on. Are you only running digital cars, as I am in Newcastle ,not far from Raymond Terrace, and will be setting up a track soon.

Cheers,

Doug

Hey Doug,

 

Will be running mainly digital i think. 6 cars on 2 lanes should be pretty fun.

You're more than welcome to come have a drive if you like. Be great to have a fellow carrera owner.
