I found an easy way to make a "custom" track in Sneak Peek v2.0 you can have fun with, using the object cannon. Here my posts from the Bugbear chat box at the bottom of main page of forum, to set the stage:Purple44 [10|Dec 05:23 AM]:

Now i got spend all day putting a video or 2 together!!
Today I thought I try my hand at making a custom track on the sneak peek playground using the object cannon. I did some scouting first to see if I could use anything on the playground in my track. Decide to route my track under the spider and through the spinner ( got it on video ). I use object cannon to drop sphere along the track route. Had to hit some spheres with my car to get sphere in the right spot.
I wanted to put something long that would stretch across the track and rest atop the spheres. So I ended up grabbing a long roller from the car crusher. When I went to drop roller on top of spheres, roller was to heavy and scatter my spheres.
So started thinking what else I could do and started thinking about making a "junk" yard. Pile up bunch of objects and use the rockets to blast my way through.
You going have to wait on the video, but here some pics I took:
At first I went with a BIG object, the car crusher and place a few of them, then went to grab roller and then all the car crusher objects disappeared. So be warn, you only get to grab one extra object with your right mouse button. So decide wisely on what one object you want to use for your junk yard track.
So I decide to use the roller as my one extra object and use it to outline the boundaries:
Then it was time for some spheres:
Using Ctrl key instead of left mouse button, I got 2 spheres at a time with some smoke effect as I was dropping them with the sky cam:
Time for some wooden boxes:
Time for some more rollers:
OOPS, as I'm adding more rollers I notice the first rollers I put down for the boundaries are starting to disappear!! So keep that in mind, there is a limit on how many objects you can have on playground.
This what "junk" yard look like after I got done:
Here how it look from car level:
Here me about 2/3 the way to other side of "junk" yard. Car did get smash up a few times after blasting a roller and it lands on your car:
Track after I blasted my way through it:
So if you guys running out new things to do with the sneak peek playground, try your hand at making your own "junk" yard track. Pics don't show the fun of blasting your way through junk yard. I have video, but might not be uploaded until tomorrow.
I did have some troubles with Fraps. Twice screen went to black when I was recording. Closing Fraps got my screen back and I started Fraps again to do some more recording before black screen happen again.
