THE CORKSCREW compatible with Scalextric – 3D printed track.

Recommended Posts

I’ve had a go at modelling, in 1:32, the Corkscrew corner of Laguna Seca fame. I designed it to print on my Prusa i3 and then glue/dowel/weld the pieces together. I ended up with two track pieces – an R2 left turn and an R3 right turn.

See a YouTube of the 1:32 Corkscrew in action here. (0:22)

See a YouTube of how the track pieces join here. (3:11)

Not all my cars can make it through the corner, especially the inner lane of the R2. My V8Supercars with mid magnet are fine. My magless cars are fine. My modern Nascars don’t make it – a combination of low ride height and a strong rear magnet. My Slot.it 956/962 Porsches can get through but the speed has to be just right and they slither over the initial hump.

Thanks for having a Captain Cook.
