Our track uses them, and i'll admit that I'm far from the "perfect" driver, but I've broken more parts from launching off them than I ever did at my old track (2x4 boarding). Also them amount of times we get cars jumping the track and causing t-bones and other accidents is becoming far too often, unfortunately we dont have a permanent track, so the ease of assembly/disassembly of the road rail system is priceless.

If you box out all the corners instead of having only a single thickness to the road rails that will cut down how many cars jump lanes. Also it's important to make sure lanes are wide enough. To stick close to ROAR/NORRCA specs I would connect a half length and a full length Road Rail and use that as a lane width guide. If at all possible it's best to also keep a double rail inbetween straights too but that does take up a lot more room.

Road rail may not be the best product. But the fact is I have bought the track, and I don't have any of the corner cones. I can't get hold of roaddome, I think they have closed since we bought the track. So if anybody has some, please let me know so I can buy them.
