Power Drop Out

Recommended Posts

Is anyone having any issues with the maste relay/ track power relay dropping out after the start when the cars cross the start gantry? I am running 1 relay for track power and 3 relays for start gantry. It doesn't't happen all the time so it's difficult to fault find. I am running capacitators on the lanes.It has been suggested I run the capacitors on the relays as well!. Any other ideas?

The only time I've seen weird issues with power is when I've started a race (to test that all is working), then cancelled the race, and restarted it ready for the first actual heat.

Then when we get to the time that the test race was canceled, we would get a random "yellow flag"...

We thought it was because the cars were too close to the start line so we moved them back further and further but it didn't make any difference! It didn't happen every time either it was quite random
