  1. Thanks. Any opinion on best program to use? Hey mate - I am using SSDC and love it. The other thing to look at getting is the Smart Sensor for pit lane sensing. http://smartracing.dk/about-the-smartsensor/

    Inox

    I use INOX on rubber tires - it is amazing to help with grip! I don’t think it’s great for urethane, though
  3. I did, - almost, good memory Dangermouse. And Grunz is correct, I onsold it to Pedro. I got my hernia just as I finished the physical build, laboured in pain to install the LCs and wire one of the 4 modules. Then when we packed up for the move to Spain, I on-sold it to Pedro who finished it, and is running it with Carrera digital. Works well, but the cornering/lap speeds aren't as high as I expected. No matter how you frame it, having car tyres crossing a pile of routed bits even when dead flat surface - ( I was proud of my build skills on that, it looks about as good as David Caillés own builds ) will always reduce grip. Thread here - Pedro could give you more insight. http://www.auslot.co...ay/page__st__80 Grunz, if you COULD make it HB anytime over summer, I am sure Pedro would open up for you if he is around. I wasn't aware Rick was working with MR Pete for auto lane systems - be worh you talking to Rick or Pete Kommandant. There might be someone in reachable distance tat you could try out a track. Wow, that's a great looking track! Interesting about the tires crossing over the slots, affecting lap times. I don't think it would be a major issue for us, as we love the digital aspect of racing with fuel usage, track calls and etc. But something to keep in mind. Hey, Thanks Rick. I have been to Mr Slot Car a few times, and Peter makes some amazing tracks, but as far as I am aware, it's all analog - I was looking at getting the modular system off him, but I just love the functionality of digtial. The cost of building new would be about the same as bringing in this track that I am looking at already. I can't seem to find any info on the Scorpius Ultima? Are there any threads of local builds that I can check out? Cheers, Komm Pete is hanging to build a Scorpius track. Why dont you give him a call to discuss. He has some Scorpius gear ready to install too. Scorpius allows each car to record its preferred race line around the track on the car decoder itself. 1)Everyone can program their own unique race line. Joe likes the inside lane on corner 3 but Pete finds the outside lane more to his liking. 2) Anyone can choose not to to have any best line function. And yet race amongst those who do. 3) Anti collision is fully automatic. 4) Auto guide into your pit bay only. Hassle free guaranteed entry into your bay and your bay. 5) You can also vary your best line at every lane changer....if your recorded line is to go straight you can still change lanes, just press the lane changer button. Likewise if your recorded line is change lanes you can cancel at the last moment by pressing the lane changer button. This is not like BLST😉 How does it work? Put the car into record mode by following the prompts on the controller menu. Drive a lap that is your best line. Record your pit bay too. Now put the car into drive mode and bingo it dors all your lane changing. Each LC and lane preference is stored in the car chips registry. At each LC the car chip looks up the registry, lane changer number 6, left lane=change lane, right lane=no change. In PEARL mode (programmable electronicly activated race line) the command can still be altered manually using the controller. Complete flexibility. And as previously mentioned, each car can have its own unique raceline and each driver can turn elect to use PEARL or not use it. Again flexibility. Thats just the best line aspect of Scorpius. The operating system and race software is another story. Rick Footnote: PEARL (ability to record best line) and AC (anti collision) were seperate functions. We then made firmware that combined these 2 functions, called ULTIMA. PEARL only or AC only is still a possible. Or choose none. So something for everyone. Scorpius sounds fantastic. I still can't seem to find too much info on it online? The deal offered on the track with all the electronics installed, and shipping is very good. Especially by the time I have a track designed to fit my space, cut out, electronics fitted - and the time it would take would be more than what I am looking at for this track. The cost of building new would be about the same as bringing in this track that I am looking at already. Komm Is that the cost of building an analog wood track, or digital wood track? There's a heap more time / labour in building a digital wood track, all worth it of course. Building a digital wooden track.
  4. How much did you get for it? And did you move to routed wood?
  5. How fantastic that Photobucket has unfucked my thread!

  7. Hey all, I am considering importing a BLST track from Silliage Racing, but I am not 100% convinced it will be any better than my current Scaley digital set up (I have proper pit sensing, heaps of lane changes and scenery - etc) So does anyone have a track I could come and check out? Or even just discuss if in Aus? Cheers, Komm
  8. Hey Slotspeed - For some reason these pictures aren't working! I am on the Scalextric digital side - I went with Scalextric because it does take up less space. I have a 3.6m x 1.8m table, and I have built a track with 3 decent straights, 2 big sweeping corners and some good technical parts (2 hair pins, some tight turns). I used Ultimate Racer 3.0 to plan out my track, and I made sure both lanes were close to equal length for analog racing. It's a lot of fun!
  9. Those Dr!ft cars are pretty cool - but I would imagine the fun wouldn't last long. They are branded as a simulator, and the whole time they were being spruked on the kickstarter, they never showed the underside of the car. They have since been released, and we have seen that there are an extra 2 wheels under the car that actually steer/drive it to get that simulated drift look.. See here:
  10. I went through all of this before the ARC Pro was released.. I spent a BUCKET on my set up. I ended up going with the Smart Sensor, it's a much more professional feeling pit lane system then the modded Scalextric version. At this stage, you will be hard pressed to find a new Advanced 6 car PB new - and the second hand market is driving the price up for those of us that use it for RMS. I have never used ARC Pro, but knowing previous Scalextric software, it's going to be clunky and no way near as involved as the after market stuff.
  11. I am selling one as a part of my whole set up, as well as pit lane sensors. If there is interest in everything else I will be happy to split
  12. Well It looks like Scalextric have completely stuffed this up, and once again have not consulted with the enthusiasts at all. They have discontinued the C7042 Digital Advanced 6 car power base, and not put an AUX port on the new ARC Pro. Very disappointing.
  13. Love the HAREWOOD hills
