H.O.T.rack Project

    Our parent corporation J Squared Inc. provided me with some of their new products.   These are some of the layout sections I did for J Squared Inc.   There is a standard in all of these photos: All CounterClockwise Climbs are clad in H.O.T.rack Guardrail and Wallboards, while all Clockwise Climbs are clad in TOMY red plastic guardrails.

    This was my favorite of the layout sections I made for J Squared Inc.   A lot of track in a little space, plus two intersections and two lane changes, with a dash of confusion, what's not to like?

    Got too many 9" radius 1/4 circle tracks, make a parking ramp to chase through, that is always fun.   I went to six levels without mounting hardware and these structures were rock solid.   These won't collapse from a little bump like standard issue supports frequently do.   These don't shake around from your vehicles like the christmas tree style support does.   These supports don't obstruct your few of the far sides of the spirals like the cardboard style support do.

    Corporate was looking for something more like this though.   This was the start of the two towers in the previous picture.   It is extremely easy to extend the height of the towers in stages.

    This is a nice way to burn up 8 pieces of 9" radius 1/4 circle curve tracks and keep the lanes balanced.   This one would look nice in tall towers as well.   Add a level each Christmas and birthday and watch how fast it grows.

    Corporate also wanted some layouts with bridges, so I did a few of those too.   These bridges are unbelievably strong and stable and give the layout a distinctive and elegant appearance in styles from Arch through Warren.

    This one has a bridge with balanced lanes and looks very nice.   These Climb structures and bridges are really easy to work with, because they don't fall apart or tip over.

    A four lane layout with a bridge looks amazing when you are standing in front of it.   It looks a lot like a four leaf clover on some of the Interstates.   Makes a great two lane layout by connecting each corner around the outside of each of the spirals.

    Four lane spirals look really nice even without the bridge as a centerpiece.   Without mounting these spiral supports they will still take a heavy bump.   Designed with support for the inside of the curve the track has little room to move.

    Not very fair as a four lane layout, but it looks pretty cool anyway.   I added a layer to the back set of spirals, a couple more would have looked really wild.

    I made a peanut spiral years ago and it was a lot more work then.   Here I just stacked these spiral supports together and ran some track.   Not only does it look a lot more professional, but it is also way stronger and more stable than my earlier structure.

    This one was a lot of fun with the interlocked stretched spirals scattered throughout the structure.   These larger structures really put a lot of track into a very small amount of space.

    This one has a nice shape to it, don't you think?   It was really easy to fetch disabled vehicles in any of these larger structures.

    This one is for those of you who want to go back to where you came from.   Looks like it should be at the end of a table, but doesn't have to be.

    This layout was nice for the "Where am I going?" factor, didn't take long to learn.   Power and control are not connected to any of these layouts at the time of photographing.   Danger tracks along the front side made for some good crashes.

    This was great fun with the intersection up in the air.   Amazing how fast you can get through some of these structures once you know the way.

    This one was really cool because it was hard to remember where you were going, even though it looks straight forward.
