The hinge tracks are easy to assemble, however you have real, steel tracks with completely closed pads. One disadvantage is that they are heavy, so they'll add more stress to your motors. Not really. They can be loose and sagging so they roll smoothly. An advantage is they don't flap just because they're heavy. The amount you use depends a lot on the length of your tracks and dimensions of the hinges. I'd say, find teh smallest and therefore the lightest possible hinges that you can (so they fit to scale) in order to reduce weight. You'll find tons of them in various types and sizes in the market. My HaGo's tracks are wider than a 1:6 scale track.
See them running in:
OK, these are flapping because of a slightly larger drive wheel.
Hey Clark! send pics of your FT 17!
hi i like the tracks you have used
how wide are the hinges and how many hinges per track as that seems an easier way to build a track than having to use a belt with wooden blocks
