    The 904 is my go to car. Handles better than my 911 and much better than the Ford GT.

      Remember that you can make single lane pieces for your pit lane by sawing lengthwise on a standard two lane track piece.

      Mark both halves so you can match them up if you need to put them back into a two lane layout.

        Installed the TV for Smartrace. Saved some money by re-purposing the unused dumb TV and made it smart with an Android box! The TV is 10+ years old but love it because it has a real integrated amp and speakers rather than the new TV's made now. The Android box had been sitting around unused for a while too, so it's nice to give it some work!

        I've also been learning alot from John at Slot Car Mayhem. I watched his Tasker series detailing how to trigger Hue scenes with Smartrace weather events. Amazing stuff! He's got a video demoing this and when the storm starts, I can almost SEE rain on the track! Reminded me that I had a pair of unused Hue lights, previously backlighting a TV, so I mounted those behind the table, point up at the attic ceiling. I installed Hue Thunder and holy cow, we have weather in the attic! Now I will be copying John's Tasker routines to get Smartrace triggering the Hue weather.

        What's next?? low lying fog machine???

          I have also been following John at Slot Car Mayhem. Changed all my pot lights to Hue, when the snow flies I will attempting to integrate the weather and the lights by using Tasker, but I expect to be confused........

          Great track, one day when my final layout is up I will post a picture. (temp track put up to keep the youngsters busy at a family party)

              Will probably race better with the cars beginning the long straight from the long R4 curve instead of racing into the long R4 curve and slowing for the following hairpin. Layout could be mirror flipped if you want the cars running down the long straight in a particular direction.

              Clearance on the overpass may be tight unless the elevation is cheated somewhere. 1/24 cars would be very tight.

              Could you please mirror flip this one for me? I could then incorporate the curved lane changer going into the R4 curve. I've built the track as originally designed but it actually flows better in reverse.

                      I've completed your track (mirrored). Now corner #4 is the Deadman's curve rather than corner #2 on the non-mirrored version. Best lap time is 6.3 in the 904. Will post a video shortly.

                      Keep up the great designing!

                        For your Ford GT, it may just need the tires to be lightly sanded to get better traction.
                        This made an enormous difference. It transformed my GT from ghost car to contender. Thank you.

                          Here's a vid of your layout with some Hue Weather. I'm considering adding another overpass to lengthen the layout but am open to any idea/suggestions.

                            Please list which parts you have unused. I'll see what I can do, maybe adding another box of curves.

                            A layout with 2 true crossovers can't be equal length in both lanes, AFAIK.

                                Working on it, haven't cracked it

                                Are you sure that you have 5 pieces of R2 curve. Just seems like a weird number.
