We just opened up the two sets of crosses that my son got for his birthday and -- contrary to what's shown on the packaging -- the rails that are included are too long to fit on the crosses. Has anyone else encountered this?

It looks like user 3pod had this issue too:



Other than that, though, we really like them. We have limited table space and they seem to let you fit more track in a given area.

You could cut them to fit.

You may be overestimating my mechanical aptitude . . . . but yeah, I probably could. I'm just surprised they didn't do it for me.

You could use one of the short rails from somewhere else.

I'd like to buy some extra rails, there are never enough.

Yeah, for some we used shorter rails and others we used the long ones and had an overhang. Good enough for now.

I'd buy extra rails too -- especially if I'm going to be hacking some of them up.

This is common for the newer version of the Pitchcar series; especially Mini. There are a pile of rails that do not fit for mini.

I've also noticed that many of my rails for my second base set of Pitchcar are too "fat" to fit. Luckily I now have so many it doesn't matter but it's still an annoying production issue that seems far too easy to have been resolved.
