On the standard firmware, and without a pc attached, this is not possible.

 

I can't remember if just a firmware update (which requires the pc cable anyway) will resolve this issue...

 

The cable you need (assuming you have the advanced powerbase with the external screen), should be available here...

UK - http://ssdc.jackamen...om/cables.shtml

NZ - http://www.electrici.../Pro_Order.ashx

 

 

Currently there is no Aus supplier, although a few of us are trying to create our own 'budget' cable that will hopefully be under $20

 

 

Oh, and the firmwares are available here, but I don't see a mention of Yellow Flag delays...

ps. Do you have a link to the video in question?

 

Thanks

Michael

Can't find an exact answer, but I'm fairly sure DRAWW (Raceline Raceway) uses an RMS (Race Management System) on a pc connected to the advanced powerbase (APB).

 

Great vid by the way... Also love the use of 4 'chips' and you're out...

That was 3 years ago, but he already had a RMS (SSDC) then...

Hi Lordy,

I've never used it, but I see there's a Yellow Flag delay function buried in the APB menu jungle assuming you are using the original tower.

 

Although it's based on a later version, this menu map may help to find it: http://scaley.chris9...2_menus_109.pdf

 

And for good measure here's a dictionary for the hieroglyphics: http://scaley.chris9...breviations.pdf

 

Cheers,

Chris

Unfortunately, that delay is for a different purpose...

When you press the 'yellow flag' button, there is a delay before the cars stop.

 

This is great for allowing the other cars to gain a slight advantage, without causing the crashed car to be completely out of the race...

The only annoying thing is that every time the button is pressed, it resets the timer.
