Carrera Track Layout Turns

Carrera Track Layout

Top Layout Middle Layout End Layout

Note: Above is a click-enabled image. By clicking on a piece of track in the image, you'll get an enlarged picture of that track and adjacent track. This should help when it comes to reading the reference numbers on the image and matching them to correct Carrera product listings below.

Curves:
1: 20577 1/30, 6 each = 180
2: 20571 1/60, 3 each = 180
3: 20572 2/30, 6 each = 180
4: 20573 3/30, 6 each = 180
5: 20578 4/15, 12 each = 180

Outside Shoulder for Curve:
6: 20567 1/30, 6 each = 180
7: 20561 1/60, 3 each = 180
8: 20562 2/30, 6 each = 180
9: 20563 3/30, 6 each = 180
10: 20568 4/15, 12 each = 180

Inside Shoulder for Curve:
11: 20590 1/30, 6 each = 180
12: 20551 1/60, 3 each = 180
13: 20591 2/30, 6 each = 180
14: 20592 3/30, 6 each = 180
15: 20593 4/15, 12 each = 180

End Sections Outside Shoulder:
16: 20598 1/30

Explaining how curved track relate to each other:

  • Let's say you want to build a four lane track and make a 180 curve: 2/30 track (product number 20572) fits outside a 1/30 track (20577) or 1/60 track (20571).
  • How about a six lane track? 3/30 (20573) fits outside 2/30 (20572) track.
  • And for an eight lane track? 4/15 (20578) fits outside 3/30 (20573) track.

But wait, what does 1, 2, 3, or 4 mean when I read 1/60, 4/15, or 2/30?

The numbers refer to the tightness of the turn. A "1" would be the inner most curve. It has the smallest radius for a turn, thus a tighter turn. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a "4" would be the largest possible radius for a turn. It's the outermost curve and curves of this nature are very shallow and gradual.

Now, if you were interested in building just a two lane track layout, then know you can use any of these track sections to make doglegs or other partial curves, ranging from real tight ("1") curves to real shallow ("4" curves), to your track layout. If you want to know more specifics of each track piece (such as the arc length of the track), please go to each products MORE INFO section in our Carrera Track Accessories page of our catalog.
