I finally got to set up my Revell 1/32 track in the living room, and wife and I have been racing ever since. She seems to enjoy it, so now I've got visions of a routed club track dancing in my head.
I'm trying to come up with a four lane 1/32 scale track plan for a room about 14'x18' or bigger, and have some simple routed track questions.
How wide should a track be for four lanes of 1/32 including the inside and outside aprons? I would also like to be able to run two 1/24 cars on occasion.
How steep should a banked curve be for running modern SlotIt/SCX or stock vintage Monograms or Revell cars? I would like to run my vintage cars too without them tumbling down the bank.
Also, how long should approaches to level changes/overpasses be for modern cars? I know some of them are much lower than vintage cars.
I read somewhere about 'magnetic paint' used nowadays on some tracks. Is it really necessary, where do you find it, how well does it work, and is it better than magnetic track braid?
