Jump to bottom
I recently watched the Speed Racer movie on a flight to NY, and I liked the cool jumps, flips, and drops. Just thinking about how I could accomplish these track effects with DCR. Any Thoughts?
Thank you all in advance
Are you referring to the 2008 movie? If so, I've always thought that diecast open track racing, in general, was a good comparison to how the cars performed in that movie. When diecast cars on OT aren't racing smoothly door2door, they're usually drifting, blocking, spinning, or ejecting themselves and/or each other from the track in often dramatic fashion...kind of like the movie.
I have been watching quite a bit of track builders and starting to design some 'EVENTS' like triggered track switching, change lanes, etc. has anyone seen any kits or builds like this? Go Speed Racer Go.
Magnet shenanigans would be interesting, but it would have to be a strong magnet underneath to repel the car passing by quickly above for the flips and such. And hopefully you would have the magnets glued to the bottom of the car the correct way - otherwise, you would go to pass over the magnet in the track, and instead of being repelled, you would get stuck right there on the track!
you could build a track with a bunch of tiny holes in specific places and use air pressureblow on the side, super slide, angled under the car, turbo boost,straight up super jump, etcI think the magnets would be a pain, as was said above, controlling the polarity is critical,and magnets are not effective unless you are right on themwe use magnets in the slot cars we race, and 1/16-1/8 inch change in car height makes a huge difference in the magnetic downforce
