Default Tracksetta

I am about to order myself the first bit of N stock, flexi track code 55.

I am working in a smaller space for now so I want to know what tracksetta I need for a R2 curve, It wont be permanent so could I easily wing it without a tracksetta?

thanks
Alex

Setrack R2 is 10 3/8”. Tracksetta start at 9” and increase in regular increments.

I (though OO) use two curved Setta's one directly in front of the other. This I find produces a smoother constant curve.
For straights I use the edge of a steel rule placed along the sleeper ends or int he rail web.
