  • Help me, making a choice !!!

    Hello fellow SCI-ers,Iím planning to change the layout of my Exclusiv 1/24 Carrera track, somewhere in the future.
    For the moment Iím not able to make the wright choice, thatís why Iíve started this thread:
    Help me making a choice ! Therefore, Iím asking you all:
    which one of the plans inserted in this thread, will Ďve your preferences ?
    These are the conditions:
    The target is to use the same surface (table)
    I race with different kinds of 1/24th scale slotcars (Carrera, BRM, Parma Flexi, H&R, etc.)
    Therefore the surface must be as flat as possible.(because of small groundclearances)
    The crossover will have a height of approx. 10 cm, the slopes must be as smooth as possible.
    Iíve inserted a photo and a Carrera Trackplanner drawing of the actual layout.
    The other drawings, plan 2, 3 and 4, are the 3 layouts to be used to make your choice.
    I hope there will be a lot of SCI-ers who will help me to make a choice.
    So, now, go for it!!












    Lots of Slots

      I concur, plan 2 is the most interesting in my opinion.

            Not a fan of having a corner underneath a bridge.By shortening a couple of the straights and adding a couple of sweeping kinks would make for a far better layout

              Shift the track over a little to better support the unsupported corner. Add some "leafs" (bolt-on, additional table surface) to your table, and lengthen the long straights also.
              The more running surface the better in my mind.

                Yep, #2 gets my vote. Looks like a mini commercial layout. Small, but FUN! -- Enjoy... Ernie :>)

                  It looks to me like it might be a pretty steep/tricky transition to the overpass on Plan #2. I like Plan #2, but with Plan #4's length.

                    How about something like this? You can do a track like this with a box of R2 or R3 curves; I think the legs of the L are too short to easily do this with R4.

                      That is exactly what i was talking about in my post.If you don't want to have a bridge and want to keep it flat,your current design is similar to a popular circuit in Western Australia called Barbagallo Raceway

                        This uses R1 curves.

                          This uses 12 pieces of R4 curves (one box).

                            Nice job supplying Hufo with alternate layout designs. Am I correct in assuming you're using some kind of track design software, or are you just light years ahead of me with your computer skills? :>) Very cool helping our fellow forum member out that well... Ernie :>)
