I just finished up the Derby Dash and my next hosting duty isn't until May, so I have a month or so where I want to tear down my track and rebuild it to hopefully address some balance concerns and just make things run more smoothly.
My track is two, long seamless lanes. It's easy enough to take those off the base and adjust the downhill and things but as far as how to keep the track wrinkle-free over a long period time is something I need some suggestions and tips on.
The track is in my basement, which is finished, but temperature and humidity can still vary quite a bit...but generally, it's cooler down there.
Part of my plan is to reverse the lanes and rotate them. So lane 1 becomes lane 2 and the end that was at the finish goes to the start...like a tire rotation, kinda. And while that's great, it won't help any bumpiness in the track or anything.
So...not sure what I should do to handle that or what my routine should be. Hair dryer? A better way to nail down the track? Or should I abandon seamless and go back to track segments?
And more so, what does my routine look like to support that. Do I blast it with heat before every race? Just once, twice? Only once a month? How often should I rotate...annually, monthly?
I'm all about routines and systems, it's what I need to be able to get things done efficiently given a very limited amount of time to dedicate.
I know we all have very different tracks with setups, types and accessories so any tips, tricks and suggestions are appreciated - even if you don't have a seamless track.
