OK, I've been trying to learn how to post pics for a while.
With a lot of patience from my wife, previous posted advice from Desertslot, GoodwrenchnTim & SlotcarMan, Thanks! :thumbsup:
Before beginning to assemble my new Max-Trax layout, I became curious.
I compared curved AFX track pcs. to the MT. I found a 15in. AFX pc. fits
very well to the inside border of a 29in. Max-Trax curve.
Pictured are 6,9,12 & 15" curves w/the 29" pc. :)

WoW!!!! A 14 lane oval!!!! PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's NASCAR heaven!!! (and a corner marshals 7734)
This looks way more like the combo sectional/pro track I'd be interested in.
Lots of possibilities here.

Rich :thumbsup:

David, sorry but I am new to posting pics.:confused:
Marty, you are welcome when track is up, but it won't be 14 lanes. :)
The pics are simply a comparison of track pcs. The new layout is an improved MT replacement of my previous 6 lane Tomy.
Although the table dimensions are 76in. wide x 19ft. long, I doubt it could be big enough for a project like that. :eek:

Try reducing your pictures to 640 x 480 pixels,
with Microsoft Office Picture Manager that is probably on your computer.

You guys are missing something.....Notice the gap between the inside lane of the Maxtrax. It's enough space for a 15th lane.

Nice pics Dyno Dom...

That's a lot of lanes...............14 enter but, only one will leave. You could have a race like this: If you wreck your out (pull the car off) and the last one running wins! Well to eliminate slow pokes you would have to put a time limit on the race with a pre-determined amount of laps that need to be finished also. :rolleyes: Or not?

Rich....75 cars.....................Holy Heavenly Demo Derby Nascar smash-em' up and wreck-em' up race. DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

Bob...going into turn one (*crowd cheers wildly*) it's a huge pile-up with only 55 cars still going...hahaha...zilla

SuperFist, thanks for the advice, learning process so I certainly can use the help. :)
Rich, 29" is MT largest curve. Smaller curves are 11,17 & 23.
Wider lane spacing more true to modern 1/64th scale is nice w/plenty of track border area.

Jim, you would be correct. :thumbsup: Most all the cars are on stock chassis. Temporarily, the Ford GT & 2 Cobras are on stock Tomy G+ chassis.
The Dash 427 Cobra is 1 of my favorite slot bodies & will be joining the Lexan
Porsche as a 9 ohm, low voltage, brass weighted car. I'll have to figure out
which body style the yellow car is, originally p/u as clear from Wizzard. It runs on a G-3 chassis & has become my best club car. Certainly a good feeling of comfort when a car is able to run hard in straights & pass in turns.
:)
