A catalog photo of the new Chicane Corner piece. I was given a sample of this from Germany and I'll try to get some pix shot of it as soon as i'm able.

The chicane corner is really cool but that Wurth Capri is awesome!

And you can NEVER have enough cowbell.

Excellent cars and track addition. Thanks for sharing, I was stealing it and noticed you beat me to it.

I suppose it would be asking too much to have the chicane slot centerline to be the same as GO! track. :D . Just saying. It would cost nothing to do this if it was thought about ahead of time

No actually not. I'm working on getting more "organic" curves in 1/32. I did the corner lane changes a few years ago and now this piece. I'm trying to get as many of this type of track pieces which I feel we sorely lack.

OK . Just saying if you made the narrow space the same as GO track, it would allow GO! track to be used. There may be next to no need for this other than a few guys like myself, but heck it would cost nothing, and would be kind of neat to think the GO! track could just mate up to it.

Honestly now that I am using D132 for 143 the ability to have set track that would crossover back to GO would be a real advantage. In my case I am using the D132/124 Straight and pit lane on my layout. I had to custom make the transition pieces, but if Carrera thought about this the next time they were designing some converging lanes the pieces could serve a dual purpose.

This is really cool Dave. Glad to hear you are working on more organic curves.
As soon as I saw this, I thought, if you could buy some of those pieces separately, one could make some Esse curves, which would be great. :)
