Circuit Track Pieces
Our Information Manuals have all been Incorrectly printed with the actual stamped lettering on the bottoms of the track pieces. This has caused some confusion in how the tracks shown in the Manuals can be set up. The Manual and the set ups shown in them are done with letters "A" through "F" and the letters that are actually on the track pieces are letters "C" through "F" and "M" and "N". Trying to get this straight with the letters so close, is confusing, so I am going to ask you to totally forget them and interpose the letters with numbers 1 thru 7.
"A" Double lane curved is number "1"
"B" Double lane straight is number "2"
"C" Double lane banked is number "3"
"D" Crossover track is number "4"
"E" Dou Lane Lower bridge is number "5"
"F" Dou Lane Upper bridge is number "6"
Lap Counter Double Lane is number "7"
Number 3 Double Lane Banked, Curved track:
This is an inward curved track that initiates and ends a raised turn. It will lift the a section of Number 1 tracks that are together into a raised corner turn.
Banked track used to create a high curve.
Tip: Track Maintenance - Always disconnect the power supply from the track before cleaning the track surface. Clean the track surface and the grooves with a dry cloth only. Do not use cleaning agents!
LiteHawk CIRCUIT - Fitting the Track Pieces together
Putting the track sections together the first time, requires two strong hands, as they are a very tight fit. You want a tight fit so that the track doesn't wiggle and start to pull apart from the force and weight of the cars racing. Putting the pieces together the second time around, is much easier, but still a nice tight fit.
Each track piece has electrical connections for both lanes. One side is a female connection, and the other side is a male connection. The Male connection can be sharp. Always be aware of these sharp connections, as you pressure them together. Never push or pull anywhere near them - you don't want to bend or damage them in any way, or yourself.
Line up two pieces of track with the electrical connectors just started together.
Then push one side (one lane) as far in as you can with both hands. That will leave the other lane almost separated but not quite.
Now turn the two pieces of track around, and with two hands press the other lane together, very firmly.
This may have dislodged the other lane a little, if it has, turn it around, and with both hands firmly press it back together again.
The first time around you may have to work the pieces back and forth a few times until you are satisfied with the connection, and the little tab locks are all in place.
