  1. Probably enough said on this topic so it has been closed
  2. I finally decided that I should record my slot cars on my House and Contents insurance as a seperate item. Insurance company recommended I take pictures of the cars and record the details to make any potential future claim more likely to be approved. i have now started a spreadsheet and commenced the laborious task of entering all the information. This started me thinking are members insuring their slot cars and what are they using to record slot car information ie spreadsheet or database. if someone has created a particularly good spreadsheet or database they may be happy to share it with others.
  3. Yep Gaz I like the old 25 pin port unfortunately modern computers no longer include the port. I will send a message to John see if he remembers anything
  4. I have a Relay, and Track Call button connected to a Arduino Board in Race Coordinator The Relay works fine turning power on and off at the start and end of heats and correctly cuts the power at the end of the race. I am running version of the software in Race Coordinator. The problem occurs when I pause a race either through the Call Button or through the space bar on the computer. When I pause the race the power is cut to the track all good so far but when I resume the race the countdown commences and race starts but the relay is not tripped back on. There is no power to the track. The only way I can get the power back on is while the race is paused go to Race Coordinator on the computer and click Turn Power on. Power is returned to the track. I then click on either hit the Track Call button or the space bar computer the countdown resumes and race continues normally. The Master Relay is connected to the Arduino on the digital side of the board but I have also tried connecting the pins on the analogue side of the board but with the same effect. I have tried the Invert Relay option but that does not work if fixing the problem. The main issue with having to turn the power back on manually after a Track Call is that power is activated to the track prior to the countdown for the restart and drivers can move their car forward prior to the countdown for the time remaining recommencing Tks Charlie
  5. Thanks everyone for your replies
  6. I have a RSM Tyre Truer and recently broke the rubber belt between the motor and pulley. Does anyone know where they can be purchased. I have seen them on the Overdrive site in Germany and while the belt is only a few Euros they want 20 euros for postage. Does anyone know of any other supplier Thanks Charlie
  7. Good to hear Pete I luv my Mr Trax track with Magabraid. While we do not run magnets the option to have some downforce when my grandkids are here is great. Glad you were able to source it as it was looking like we may have to experience life without magnetic braid for a while there.
  8. Welcome Phil a lot of knowledgeable people here so ask away if you have questions
  9. Welcome Mark i lot of knowledgeable people here so ask away we always like to see pics of members tracks so don’t be shy post away
  10. Sad to see Gaz unfortunately it is the way of things anyway move forward new state, new house and new track
  11. John I would have thought that you do actually have power to both the track and the sensors prior to race start. When cars are lined up during the countdown for the start of the race you have power to the lanes and power to the sensors.
  12. Dave from Race Co-Ordinator has posted on Slotforum re the problem with the first lap not recording all racers.Below is his quote from Slotforum. “The issue seems to center around trigger a lap after the race screen is entered, but before the race starts. Like if you allow warmup laps or if your finger trips the sensor... You can tell it happens if after the "go" when you cross the S/F line the lap count stays at "--" instead of going to 0. The transition to 0 signifies the reaction time has been registered...For now the easiest workaround is to simply stay clear of the sensors once the race screen is entered. This is only for the very first heat and before the heat starts. After that everything should be fine. If you do trip the sensor after the race screen is entered and before the race starts, you can either restart the heat after the "go" which will fix the problem, or add a lap to the lanes that missed the lap. If you export the race to xls, these missed laps will likely be easy to spot because the driver will end up with a very high reaction time.Unfortunately I don't know when the issue was introduced. I know the bug is in 1.14 but I assume it's been around a lot longer than that because I have not touched the TM interface in about 2 years.We're testing a new beta now that should fix the problem and will release it as soon as possible. Obviously missing a lap is a very big deal so I wanted to make sure TM users were aware of the potential problem.-Dave” Hope this helps those with the problem charlie
  13. You have got to love the Ninco classics great work
