Control your game space: There are different scales of cars, the most used are 1/43, 1/32 and 1/24. If you have little space we recommend the 1:43, since the circuits are smaller and allow you to make different routes with many bridges and elevations on itself. If you have a lot of space you can then use the scale 1:32 and 1:24, for which you will need more room for manoeuvre especially when entering very open curves in the layout. Luckily there are several brands and sizes to fit well.
