- Make a plan! It can be simple or complex and can change as you go, but the best designs start with a plan in your mind or sketched on a piece of paper.
- Don’t start too steep so the marble doesn’t fly off the track. The angle set by the Double Starter is a good angle to start with. If it is going too slow, you can always make it steeper!
- Test as you go! The best designers test their tracks as they go, so they don’t get to the end and realize it doesn’t work.
- If you plan to build using wall plates and wall putty, put putty on a bunch of plates before you start building so you don’t have to interrupt your building process.
- If your marble is flying off track, your track is probably too steep on that part.
- If your marble is bouncing off the track during a drop or jump, it usually means you’re dropping too far or need to re-press the wall plate against the wall.

Here are many of the different track pieces if you are unsure how one of them works. Feel free to be creative though!
