Track stability

Lego tracks have excellent strength when pulled. However, due to the way they're connected, they easily break apart when twisted. This happens both with 5-wide tracks, and 3-wide tracks as shown here. To limit twisting, I tend to support tracks on two sides instead of in the middle.

 

It's not obvious at first glance, but I do this with nearly all my tracked vehicles.
