Your track is indicating 121m long, when you first add a track CL segment it is 10m long for comparison with your track width.

In Max you have to check the scale you are working in cm. If using fbx2edf just export at a bigger scale *10 or *100
Hi! I need to know how to change the scale of a track from fbx2edf. Can somebody explain what i need to do?

You scale in a modeling package.
...then export as an FBX again.

If your track is only a little shorter in TrackEd than it is in real life and has hills in it - that's normal.  TrackEd gives a 2d length - it doesn't take elevations into account - so will pretty much always show a shorter length.  The more hills - the more it'll read short.

If the track's showing as tiny or huge and you've had it through 3D Studio MAX during conversion - MAX's unit settings probably still need changed to Metres.  The units are in Imperial when you install and there are two places you need to change them:

Customize>Units Setup>Display Unit Scale
and
Customize>Units Setup>System Unit Setup>System Unit Scale

...then any models you import into it in the future will remain the correct size.
