A circle consists of 16 pieces and has a width of 96 cm
Curve fits precisely in between an R40 and R72 curve with 8 studs in between.
Smoother curve than standard LEGO curves for faster speeds.
RadiusR56 is the radius measured from the center of a circle to the centerline between the rails using the LEGO stud as the unit. A LEGO stud is 8mm.
The space needed to have the full R56 circle can be calculated as follows: (56 + 4) * 2 * 8mm = 960mm = 0.96m.
This measures the diameter (2 * radius) of the outer shape of the track - that's why we added 4 studs in the formula.
In general, the formula for calculating the outer diameter of a circle track is:
(R + 4) * 2 * 8mm
