    It really is not that hard, I promise

    I'm going to hijack this thread with a related topic. Specifically a question for Harry about the long guides. Do you get better results on your track with the long guides compared to a standard commercial jet flag. I'm asking with regard of the proxy cars we will be send to race on your track. Appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks

    One thing some guys do is to trim the bottom of the leading edge like Harry trimmed the back edge. A small angle cut on the front can stop the click clack you get on some plastic tracks.

      Not really. Performance between the two are the same.

      The "click" noise at the joints come from several areas. If the guide is too deep for the slot, then yes, angling it helps. If you leave a hard edge on the front, it can also cause it by catching on the sides. Finally, some older models with brass ferrules at the braid can do it. The hard edge at the ferrule hitting the rail joints is the same sound.

        Thanks Harry. It does look like it is easier to hide the guide.
