Hey guys

I am in the planning process of building a pernament AFX track. Right now I am using Life-Like on a track just set up on my floor. But I am getting a spare room in the house to turn into a track so I was planning to use AFX, but I went over to my mates house today to have a turn on his AFX track and it felt a whole more jumpy and the cars came off more and flew all over the place. Its and 11 year old track. and my lifelike is a lot more relistic.

If I buy new AFX track will I have the same problem?

Thanks

Tom

Not if you smooth the lock tabs under the track surface. A Dremel or other motorized rotary hand tool is all you need.

My track is AFX, 70 feet per lane, and not a bump in the joint. :)

What you are noticing is the difference in the magnetic properties of the steel rails...

I have both Tyco and new Tomy track...the difference is night and day...Cars that stick like glue on my tyco track spin out on the Tomy ...

Our new Tomy track has plenty of magnetic downforce. The only problem I have with it is the gap left between track sections when you set up a four lane track that you have to fill in.
