RCP - New 45 Degree Tiles, Large Radius Turns and Bumps

RCP will be releasing some new stuff:
45 degree tiles, large radius turns and bumps.

1) The new track kits will contain enough pieces to make both layouts
shown in attachment 1 and 2.
2) The 45 degree sections can be combined to make long 45 degree lengths.
3) The off road jumps will be made from similar EVA foam, but the
attachment to the tile has not been confirmed.
4) The large radius turns will be sold in kits of multiple sets and will
contain everything needed to convert small radius inside turn into large
radius inside turn.

We should see these new products available here in the US sometime
late Sept/ early October. Possible debut at Ihobbyexpo October in Los Angeles.

Haven't played with my files in a while so I had to model some CG lay outs.

Ya, this is gonna allow for some KRAZY KEWL layouts. I've seen some awsome layouts here in the forums and they'll only get better.

I could have used both the wide corners and the 45's. I'll have to contact RCP for those.

I usually stick down some discs with foam tape. I'll eventually do some astro-turf.


All the info I know about the new track additions is in my first post. I'm sure updates are just around the corner. (no pun intended.)

Thatís similar to what our Phoenix club (Mini-AZ) does, Mifune. I like the AstroTurf idea, might implement that in the near future. Iím working on wall banners right now.

Hereís a picture from one of our tracks. We used Apex tiles to link sections together so itís a standard outside corner on one side of the track and a wide apex on the other side. Makes for fun high speed curves.

Losi Corner Dots are used to define the corners. We also sometimes put them along sharp apexes to act as curbing to help keep the car off the wall. Only trouble is they are just tall enough to get high centered if you get slow over one.

I definitely need those 45deg sections. Much better than using up all the Corners to make a 45.

It would be KEWL if they could sell them in a kit form. Like a box of 2 45* turns for $X amount. I don't know if i could talk the wife into another wide 45 track just for a couple of corners. She did say i could buy a 3rd Wide L, but i don't know if i could wait that long to get the wide 45.

I'm with Saiyan, these need to be sold in individual kits (for those of us that already have tracks) and in Complete track Kits like the wide "L".

Posting requests to this thread is good. RCP Track representatives frequent these fora.

It's my guess that the break down is like this...

45 Degree section:
- Two 45 degree tiles with rail pieces
- Two blank tiles
Maybe one kit would include two 45 Degree sections.

I'm merely speculating so don't take my word for it.
