  • THE CORKSCREW compatible with Scalextric – 3D printed track.

    The pics above show a model of the Corkscrew corner at Laguna Seca Raceway. I designed the parts so they’d print on my Prusa i3 (build volume 250 x 210 x 210high). The parts then assemble to make 2 track pieces – an R2 turning left and an R3 turning right.
    Not all my cars can negotiate the inner lane of the R2 left turn. About two thirds of my cars can make the corner and the other third run straight on or only get through if the entry speed is just right. The track pieces have steel wire under the copper foil rails so that magnet cars have magnetic downforce - helpful for some cars and a hindrance to others. All my non-mag cars take the corner without a problem.

    Thanks for having a look.

      Very cool! Looks like you have captured that "falling off a cliff " beginning to the curve really well.
      I love watching the races there.

        Thanks for the comments.

        Even at 1:32 scale you get the feeling when entering the corner of waiting for gravity to pull the car down, then allowing gravity to do the initial acceleration of the car, then powering out of the corner.
        I love watching the races there.
        I have posted a 22 sec YouTube video of the 1:32 Corkscrew in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Dj6Jm8u2-4 In the comments is a link to the stl's if you're interested.
