I just got sucked into this whole thing a few weeks ago, so I might be missing something obvious. It seems like most of the community focuses on the cars but the thing that appeals to me the most is the creative track designs.
I haven't been able to find any specifics on what people have used to lay out thier tracks (napkins?). Working in the engineering field, this is unacceptable to me. So I've been laying out my track in Sketchup. I do appreciate the helpful nature of the Diecast Racing community, so I'm making an active effort to contribute content that others may find helpful.
Most of my track will be made up of various Crash Circuit/Crash Racers components along with orange track, so I thought it would be worth the time to create fairly accurate models of each of the track parts. If you fancy doing some track design in Sketchup as well, just search for "Crash Circuit/Racers Track Parts" in the Component 3D Warehouse search field.
I am curious as to how(or if) others design their tracks before they start putting everything together.
