I find that to achieve a rollaway with my SMOT ramp design, I need a lift of around 18mm or about 1.5 ball diameters. You don't need to lift 4 ramps to do this. I can get around 16 with one ramp or 20mm with two.I believe others will be able to get the rollaround track to work with one ramp. If you can get a rollaway 1.5 to 2mm above the entry level on a single ramp then the rollaround design will work for you.

So our goal is now :

1) Achieve a level rollaway 2mm above the entry height.

2) Build the "N" gauge rollaround setup and get a loop.

Go for it. Best Results, Greg
