i hope i can explain myself here

my first mistake is probably having 2 sources of wiring diagrams.......one from fergy's place and the other from slot car corner.

on fergys one the negative wire from power goes straight to the dpdt switch
using third diagram just with dpdt switch

now on the SCC wiring diagram it has the negative power split with 1 connection going to the dpdt switch and the other going directly to the red wire on the controller
why is there a difference, and which is more correct.
i suppose they could both work(im no electrician), but why the difference

thanks

I've used the Fergy's one that you mention, and it works fine.

Can you post the SCC wiring diagram?
I'm interested to see it.
:P

I just re did Fergy's to suit one of the common plus used here.

This is the same as most Aussie tracks use,with their choice of plug and socket.

The SCC page seems to be gone!

i had to take a screenshot of it
you will see their negative is in red to further confuse
it goes to the wiring block then splits and connects to dpdt and negative terminal in this

As the experts say. My vote goes to Fergy. I used it. It's simple and it works.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

The SCC is using the same colour code as a Parma Turbo controller. And I agree that the reversing switch LOOKS like it does nothing. Use Fergy's.

woohoo...i just did my first few laps
bit of a worrying start......errors showed up on power supply

turns out it was kalbfellp's diagram
maybe i read it wrong kalb but i read it as looking at the back of both plugs
which puts the black lead from the controller going into the red positive when you plug them in

any way sorted now
and woohoo
