NEED 2 PIECES OF SCX BASS PRO BANKED TURNS

Postby mattb » Thu Oct 12, 2017 7:19 am

A friend wants to convert a Bass Pro set to a standard oval instead of the tri-oval as packaged from SCX. He says he needs two more banked turns to do that. If anybody has 2 pieces I will be glad to buy them.

thanks

There is enough track in the Bass Pro set for a 4 X 11 oval :

He has the SCX set that was sold before BP went with Carrera. I am pretty sure I could make an oval with what is in the set, but this guy is challenged with all things slot, even though he has been playing with them for 30 years. I think the SCX must have 2 flat curves in the front stretch dogleg, which the other curves are banked. I never took the track out of the box, it was a set I bought cheap to keep on hand when somebod would ask me about getting a set for kid or beginner. I am pretty sure you could put the two flat curves in there somewhee and make the track an oval. I have done serious twisting to lots of plastic track!

I try to keep used stuff on hand so I can supply a cheap set to somebody that wants to start in slots.

I don't think that is the correct track. The track in the set has the wire connectors that slide into the next piece. I think they call it digital track. I don't have the set and I am not sure about the radi of the curve. I am hoping somebody that has the same set might know and maybe have the extra pieces.

Must be this set:

Still should be able to reconfigure it as an oval, maybe with one flat turn on each side of the banked sections. It's got 360 degrees of curve so you be able to make two 180 degree turns. Or maybe 1 banked curve / 1 flat curve / 1 banked curve / 1 flat curve / 1 banked curve ?

I Think that is the set, the guy that tried to set it up is challenged by this stuff. I would go set it up, but he took it 100 miles away to his grandson! I will have to convince him it will work if he tries. Life and hobbies are hard for some people. Most of the guys here have no problems with this kind of stuff. I don't know if it's talent or just we refuse to quit!!!
