Soldering to FasTrack will definitely result in melted plastic.
A 25w weller iron will solder to the fastrack tabs in seconds and not touch the roadbed.
Need to make a change? Touch the iron to the solder for a few seconds will release the wire.
14 GA soldered directly to the tabs is supeior to any slip on connector when it comes to conductivity, period.
I used 14 Ga buss with14GA feeder wires about every 10'. No issues, no heat, no melting and no voltage drops. A constant 17 volts at any point on my 12'x16' layout.
Don't skimp, wiring is the most important thing to the trackwork when it comes to trouble free running.
