I'm hoping this post can become a repository for custom tracks either at people's homes or stores for MINI-Z or DNANO. I'm mainly interested in seeing images of people's permanent track that they've either made from scratch or have used existing materials like RCP as a base for a more custom creation. I'm hoping this thread will be a good resource and inspiration for people like myself who hope to make a custom track in the near future. I think mine will most likely end up having to be a Dnano track due to size.

Some inspiration:

This is slot but I think a good layout for the kind of space I'm dealing with:

This is also slot but also just amazing, really the gold standard.

Does anyone know what this rail system is? Seems to be the same ones used at the Kyosho Shop:

Don't know exactly what that is, but I saw some one mention using venetian blinds. Seems like a very good idea to me.

Here are a couple of the tracks I created over the years.

Here are some of my older works..... :D

We started in the parking lot, but this was the first "track".

Then we upgraded to carpet.

Of course with my own modular wall system for easy layout changes:D

Nice work Landon.

Are the corner dots and curbs custom made? If so what is it made of and what did you use to make the gradual lip?

Everything besides the actual RCP is custom made. Ive been meaning to put up a thread with all of MBMZR's Trackcesories :D Ive been swamped lately with a racing trip, and my little girls third birthday. Ill get something up soon though.

Oh, and I havent forgot about your PM. I should have time to check things out today, and get back to you.

Well this isn't a permanent track as the group I meet/race with doesn't have a permanent location. Each time we meet it's a different layout. One person in our group really wanted to do a crossover track. I tried to discourage a criss-cross-crash type demolition derby track and volunteered to make an overpass instead. This past Sunday was the first time out for the overpass I made for our group. The important part for me in designing and building the overpass is that our track isn't permanent so I had to be able to put it together and take it apart without tools and it had to fit in the trunk or back seat of my car.
