Is a fully enclosed connector required?
Posted by: @othila

Yes the holes are massive and unfortunately that's how you connect to hot wheels track, not much can been done with this.

Admittedly my last interaction with Hot Wheels tracks goes back some 50 years, but don't the inserts slide into L-shaped notches on the bottom of the track? At least when printed in the flat (normal) orientation, this might leave some room for automatic or modeled-in supports for the top of the slots.

Good memories

This thread brings back the memories of playing with my son.  It has been almost 20 years, but I remember these connectors.  

Did you fix your print?
