I like the A. Your track seem to be 140x90, I hope you're not alone to build the track.

A looks to be the best. Maybne work in some nice off camber corners that are build up to make the S challenging

You definitely have some good ideas. Somethings I would recommend is maybe give more room for marshals and make sure where they would stand wouldn't be obstructive. You would need to lose a little bit of track space, but your track will run a lot more smoothly because of it.

But those designs are a very good start. Add in some off camber and on camber turns and you should be set.

Here are obstacles I think are fun to have. Some of which you already have:

- Off Camber Turns
- On Camber Turns
- A Drop Off
- Mogols
- A Bumpy Section where the bumps are not that big. But there's a lot of them.

Of corse Jumps and Table Tops are almost a must.

Good luck

I would think A would be the smoothest track and fastest track.
Good luck

Very cool brad. We also should have a 3D rendering of our local layout.

In my opinion A is great but please remember to leave room for marshalls.

I would do some combo of B&C. keep it to one full straightaway or even none.

I would make sure every corner is completely different from each other. no repeats. more than one sharp 180 is too many. all those layouts have too many repetitions.
