For PVC tracks (Parking Lot) what we did is to have a number of pieces of pipe, bent (using a heat gun) with 45 and 33 degree, then cut up a few sticks of PVC and you can connect and make almost any lay out...to make a 180 just connect the pre-bent with short straight sticks... for a hard 180 just placed a dot at then end of the pipe...

I went back through this history of this thread and I gotta say that there have been some unbelievable layouts posted (and plenty of dogs on my part Im not gonna lie). hopefully over the Christmas holiday I can work on one or two more.

What the heck, here's my home track i made this summer. it's on asphalt and has 9' lanes. it's very fun but seems a little small.the bottom outer part acts like a double apex which is SWEET to get right. i might have to make it a little less technical to open it up a bit. Designed the track on Adobe Illustrator CS4.

What track barrier material are you using for such smooth curves on the track?

Any new programs out there for track designing? Been a couple years since the last post so I thought I would ask.
