Track up & running. I am still playing around with the standard 6 car powerbase & maybe hold off on cable & software hook-up until I manage to pick up a pit lane set.
About half the track is Sport & the other half reconditioned Classic Scalextric made up of 3x changeovers, 2x hairpin rad1, all other curves & turns are rad2
Layout was to get max track on a 3.6m length. Width ended up at 1.5m all cars are std at this point & the best time is 5.547sec. The two Lambos that came with the Digital Platinum set are by far the fastest & best handling cars. (Not overly fussed on the 888 Holden, has to be the worst std car I have
Scalextric must have a deal with Ford! Think I'll have to put another magnet in it just to keep it on the track!)
I have been playing about with Pacer settings but think the computer hook up will make that part more realistic as the % speed setting on the std power base only really gives a mobile chicane & unless you put a car on each lane with no change over setting they always get tangled up at some point.
I have calibrated & set the controllers t 15% power to reduce lag & that seemed to equalise the different cars a bit. Not sure on the variation between the chips? Any comments on this & has anyone tried paralleling the power rectifiers with another set of 1Amp's ? I read a post on one of the sites where someone replaced them with 2 amp units but this should be easily done by just piggy backing another set & should then allow reliable use of a 21K motor?
Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
Cheers for now.
