Default Storing my 1/6 scale tanks, can't put them in a box!

When I'm "helping" the Sherman back up the ramp it's because the Delrin tracks are too slippery on the rubber ramp. A little help and it scoots right up. The Husky shelves are great, I need more for my other vehicles. But boy, they take up a lot of space!

That is a nice storage system you have. You find the delrin tracks work well? Do people use metal tracks as well in that scale?

The Delrin works well except for when they come into contact with a surface that causes no friction, like my ramp. Wet pavement is also a problem when there's a steep angle. But in grass, dirt and mud they work fine. The tank on the bottom has metal tracks, they work great but need to be lubricated as the pins rust and I drive my tanks through mud and water all the time. Rubber would be ideal, maybe my next tank will have rubber tracks???
