So I'm still kicking around some track plans for two 4x8's end to end. I may not get that much real estate, but I figure if my wife goes to sleep early and she wakes up to an already built track in the garage .... Anyway, from looking at what the race tracks are at the national races, it looks like less is more--long straights w/minimal curves. My plans on the "slotman" software take up alot of real estate with very little scenery room. Is it better to have a well thought out raceway with lots of track or a faster one with longer straights? I think that combining the two gives the best result. Just FYI, I'm planning on using two superinternational sets as my track to begin with. I'll try and post a plan or two if I can figure it out.
