MagRacing the Track.

Post by kiklo »

What sets MagRacing apart from other system is it's slotless track.

A 0.7mm spring steel wire is placed in the track for each lane, flush with the surface - guiding like a slot in a slot-track does.

It is magnetic so the small magnet in the steering of the cars keep the cars direction.

The guide-wire determines the path of the course.

BUT by adding 'raceline-wire' as a option in the track a driver can choose it to race better.

To be able to take the race-line a short 'lane-change' section is made in front of the race-line.
Simply by cutting the normal wire to let you steer away and take the race-line.

The tracks are custom built and inexpensive to make mainly from MDF boards.

For 1/32 scale, most people use 0.7mm or 0.8mm spring steel wire. A few people are experimenting with 1/24 scale cars. They may use heavier wire in the track.

The track can have several lanes and can be made so the driver can change lanes at certain spots in the track or take the racing line.
