Yes, sorry I can't help you with the question of vertical storage. Piantedosi always recommended that the track "should be stored flat and level" in its carton, and most people (including us) likely do not deviate from that.drathbun wrote:But I don't want to do something that will ruin our track so I'm trying to get some research done before I redesign the case.
For what it's worth, I did some Internet searching for "wood storage" as opposed to "wooden pinewood derby track storage" and opinions are mixed. It seems like a "less filling / tastes great" sort of argument. Reading the manual (pdf) you linked answered my questions, and gives me the rational to back that decision up to the rest of the pack, so that's perfect. Thanks.
