need to 'hide' second lap counter black/white stripe

Postby michaelg » Sun Jan 31, 2016 2:52 am

i purchased two starter sets and have combined the track pieces to make one larger track

but that means that i'm now using two lap counter track sections, which has become a problem

i've searched this forum and didn't see an answer...

what type and/or color of tape would you guys recommend to cover the second black/white lap counter stripes?

Hi Michael,

I checked some colors and surfaces of tapes but without any success.
Now I've just hidden the lines under the next track and fixed them with tape on the sides.

but how do you get your track to line up with a shortened straight section?

i used blue painters tape now, but i'm thinking that white (or even just plain gray) duct tape might prevent any sensor decalibration issues?

My track is long enough to hide two of them without any influence.

But I think that it won't even matter if the course is more short.
The flexibility of the tiles is great, so they will lay plain on the ground even if there is a small gap.

ah... of course, i should have guessed that you shortened two sections to make them equal

that was smart of you

sadly, that easy solution would have never occurred to me... because i'm unable to 'think outside the box'
