Scalextric Track Layout Change

A track layout makes slot car racing exciting. Longer straights allow for more speed. Multiple turns test the handling of all cars; evening out slower and faster cars.  Balanced straights and turns make racing more competitive.

My Test Layout

I like to go for the more balanced approach to see a slot car’s full potential.  The track below has one long straight for cars with a higher top end.  Most cars can’t reach their full speed on this track since it’s too short. There’s lane change track on the south inside and outside to allow for passing. Lane change positioning allow slower cars to switch lanes to use their cornering ability to catch up.

Cork board (painted white) is used to create curve borders.  Border walls allow the weak cornering cars to not slide of the track.
