    I shoot for a minimum of 20”, not only does it operate well, it looks good too. I’d like to go 36” radius on any future corners.

    Thanks for the reminder Maurice! I use paintable caulk to fill in between my fascia and the foam. I also use it for flying down track, so I always have some around.

    Sam,
    The Tangent wheels work great in MT trucks. I did body mount my tank cars, but it was pretty easy as they were Athearn (old Roundhouse tooling) HCl cars. I was able to use TrainWorx body mount...
