Legal = is it Freeware?

If it is a copyrighted software that you "should" have paid for, then it's not legal.

I'm sorry, I have been buried in work for the past few months and haven't had time to spend on the forum (or at a track). I am still tuning in when I can though. Keep the designs coming!

Thanks,
Chris

like the tracks but the last one has 90 degree or shickanes leading in to or away from straight aways. I'd keep those down to add some speed. One's o kay, but both makes for a choppy layout. My 2 cents.

Thanks for the input. With the program I was using, it was the only way I could get the pit in and pit out lanes in there.

I also figured that if I made the pit in and pit out corners sweepers, somebody on the track could plaster somebody coming out of the pits. I could change the layout though to make it faster

Remember you always want the straight away on the far side so you can have the tight sections nearest the drivers stand.
