  • Bird of Prey 7 X 4 26 Scalextric

    This track has most cars running in the mid or upper 4 seconds. I mixed Sport and Classic and some 1/2 #2 curves to display the borders I used. Any track edges without borders have curbs. The large outer loop has the wider Sport borders which bumps the width up to about 4'3". Using curbs and barriers on the straights will keep it within the 4'0" requirement.

    26.84 feet per lane.



    I set it up with some temporary elevation changes.

    :clap I love twisty circuits. What would happen if turn 3 was extended over turns 6 and 7 (they would tunnel under) changing the elevation to a twisty run up to turn 3 and a wild ride down through turns 4 and 4a?

    Yeeha!

      That would be cool, Steve :wiggle But this track will be fastened to a 4X7 board intended to be stored vertically so we are not too keen on a bridge. We thought some small (1") elevation changes would add a lot of interest :spin My idea was to elevate only the back straight, Mark thought that raising the perimeter would be better.

      Mark was going to order more R1 curves and some 1/2 straights he needs for the Bird yesterday, so perhaps we will see some pictures of his permanent layout soon

      Thank you,
      Rand

              Here is the Ninco version. Closeness (which gives you an idea of how well the pieces will fit together) is 2.25 cm, which isn't too bad. Overall dimensions without borders are 2.28 m x 1.31 m or about 7' 5" x 4' 3".



              You can use 2 R2s in place of the crossovers.

                Pete - the photo is missing on your post. Can you email it to me or re-post?

                Thanks,
