Q: digital power flicker at lane change

Hello,
I have a Scalextric Digital Law Enforcer set that I've doubled in length and added a third straight lane change, and pit lane with the LED pit stop counter, as well as the digital lap counter.
I am using the four car power base that came with the set.

I'm having a problem now that the cars will stutter, and the lane change and lap counter lights flicker at a specific time. This seems to happen when a car crosses the sensor at the start of any straight lane change section, when the lane change actuator is setting its position.

With one car running, it doesn't happen, but with two cars, and especially three cars, I've noticed it happens about 20% of the time that a car enters the straight lane change section.

Could this be a power base problem?

Thanks in advance for the advice!
Dave

New Layout Help

Hey guys, can someone make a nice layout design for me? Mr Flippant made a nice layout for my new table in the garage. It was based on Scalextric, but I plan to use Carrera track instead because I want to be able to run my D124 cars.

The square section is 9'X9". The rectangular section is 6'X9'. So I'll have the ability to have an almost 18 foot main straight, whoohoo!! We'll need drivers to be positioned around the table in strategic areas so they can see the track. There track occupies one bay of my garage, it's kind of a long garage, so there are no walls or other obstructions. Well, there is a post about halfway down the rectangular portion of the main straight. Otherwise people can pretty much stand where they want.

I will probably go with two monitors when we race so people can stand on both sides. We only used one monitor in the past.

Here's a picture of the layout Greg designed for me using Scaley track. I like the flow of the layout, but plan to use Carrera track instead, with borders almost everywhere in the track. I'm open to all ideas. Love to see what you guys come up with. Thanks:cheers:

Fly Lotus 78 - Policar compatible chassis

1. The Fly Lotus 78 conversion will require the following pieces:

a) A Shapeways chassis available here:

https://www.shapeways.com/shops/arco_chassis

b) Policar parts numbers necessary to complete the gearbox:
PC-H03 - motor mount
PC-PPA01 - set of bushings
PC-PGS8018/17/16 - rear axle with gear. note choose either of the 18/17/16 denotes which gear you prefer. standard cars come with the 17 tooth version.
PC-PGI2516-PL - crown gear and spacers
PC-PPI429015 – pinion (be careful using equivalents as these are specifically sized)
PC-H04 - motor mount screws - The gearbox has a unique screw fixing so you will need these whatever motor you wish to use (see also below).
PWH1218-Pl – front wheel hubs. These come in sets of 4 so you only need one pack for two conversions.

c) Policar parts numbers I suggest but that might be interchangeable:
PC-PMX01 - motor. Note that the Policar gearbox has a single central top screw fixing position and so if you don't use this motor make sure yours has this hole! Also potential club rules might legislate for a single motor formula in due course.
PC-PPA02 - rear axle stopper - you may choose to use other types but be careful with sizes and what will fit.
PC-H05 - gearbox to chassis fixing screws - these are the correct size but other Slot.it (and potentially other) types will also fit. In this conversion the screws will NEED to be cut down to align with the top of the gearbox outrigger screw positions once assembled otherwise they will foul the bodywork.

d) Other parts to complete the build:
Rear wheels and tyres
I have used Ostorero Lotus 79 wheels and tyres as I have them and because they are round and grippy.
The RS Scalextric replacement aluminium hubs available through pendles are a good option as the hub in this case does not get in the way or look too bad. Tyres to fit are available from various producers.
The design parameters are that they should be about 21mm dia. and 14-16mm wide. to match the ones on the model.
Front tyres:
Use those from the original donor vehicle.
Rear spoiler fixing screw:
You will need a thin screw about 10 to 12mm long to attach the rear spoiler.

e) Front axle
Any normal 3/32 axle should work but it must be 56mm long.

f) Guide etc.
The Policar range is designed to use the Slot.it CH85 screw in pick up. Others may fit to your choice.
Wire. Given the limited space in the front of these cars I suggest some thin wire.
Braids (thin as possible suggested).
Eyelets or grub screws to your choice.

g) A donor vehicle Lotus 78 by Fly.
Actually you will only need the body and the rear spoiler so if you can get these as spares then do so.

2. The Conversion:

a) Unscrew the 3 body screws underneath and the screw under the gearbox cover at the rear.

Remove the front tyres for re use.
Remove the chassis and put it in the spares bin.
Retain the body mounting screws for re use.

b) Cut out one small area of bodywork underneath:

  • By the gearbox so it does not foul the crown gear.





    c) Cut off the rear of the Policar gearbox as shown:



    Trim the little lip off the bottom of the Fly Rear Spoiler as shown:



    Offer up the body and chassis and screw together using the three screws to make sure the alignment is perfect.

    Drill or mark and then drill a 1mm hole in the centre line of the rear bodywork spoiler fixing screw position as shown:



    Disassemble and then open up the hole to accept a screw. I have used a machine screw, but a self taping screw could also work. The important thing is to ensure the screw will grip the thin nylon of the hole but without being so long as to hit the rear axle.








    d) Assemble the gearbox, rolling chassis, front axle, guide and everything else.



    Test fit and do not force together. As mentioned earlier the chassis to gearbox mounting screws will need to be shortened flush with the top of the gearbox mounting points to not foul the inside of the body.

    Ensure the wires run OVER THE TOP of the bar above the front axle to ensure the wires don’t rub on the axle and stop it rotating freely.
    On the car there is just enough space above the centre of the nose for the wires to feed through so make sure these are not trapped during assembly.

    Push fit and then place the rear spoiler in position. Once the body is mounted on the chassis the spoiler cannot be put in so it is important to get it in place prior to driving the body mounting screws home.

    e) Screw it all together.



    f) Track test.

    Cheers

Remove the front tyres for re use.

Retain the body mounting screws for re use.

b) Cut out two areas of bodywork underneath:

  • The rear of the seat (which has no structural or aesthetic purpose.
  • The rear side seat assembly fixing (as this will foul the new gearbox screw fixing position).





    c) Cut away small areas of the rear of the Policar gearbox so that the protruding end slips into the front end of the spoiler fixing ‘box’.



    Slide the spoiler on to the gearbox and mark on the spoiler base the centre of the hole through the rear of the gearbox.
    Drill a 1.5mm hole in the bottom of the spoiler ‘box’.

    Screw the two together using one of the bodywork screws (or similar). Mine is a bit big but something more subtle could easily be arranged.





    d) Assemble the gearbox, rolling chassis, front axle, guide and everything else.



    Test fit and do not force together. Depending which screws you have used to hold the gearbox to the chassis the screws may need to be shortened to not foul the inside of the body.

    Ensure the wires run OVER THE TOP of the bar above the front axle to ensure the wires don’t rub on the axle and stop it rotating freely.
    On the car there is just enough space above the centre of the nose for the wires to feed through so make sure these are not trapped during assembly.

body and chassis question

New to the 1/32 scale racing. My question is , if you have a slot it car, are the bodies interchangeable or is the chassis only for that body. Example, in HO scale tjet chassis will take any body for tjet ,afx will mostly fit afx etc. I;m sure that different manufacturers wont fit each others. Point being if I buy say a slot it ,can I just change body to run different classes. Thanks, CB

Other brands chipped for Carrera D1XX, lane change

Has anybody had any problems with other brands of slot cars chipped for Carrera digital tripping the lane change return mechanism?

I'm testing on an old piece and when the Slot.it car and Scalextric car goes through the lane change it only returns it back to straight about half the time. In the past I had no problem with it, just wanted to know what other guys are experiencing with brands from other than Carrera.

The 1/32nd Carrera Canadian Nationals

Hi Guys,

Here it is, the second of the two Canadian National Races.

The Rules

Any 1/32nd Scale Carrera GT Car. Any of the cars from the DTM, FIA GT, or Group 5 are eligible. The basic idea is that it be a GT Car with doors, Big wheels, and a Big GT wing. If you are unsure of your cars eligibility please ask me.

Chassis

The Stock chassis unmodified in any way except to accommodate body float. If you are unsure of your "modification" please ask me first before making your chassis ineligible for the race.

You can use ONLY the parts that came in the box. Including the body screws. If it didn't come with your car, YOU CAN NOT USE IT. Period.

Body

The Stock body must be used. No modifications are allowed except to accommodate body float.

Wheels/Tires

The stock axle assembly must be used, for both front and rear axles. I will true the front tires on everyones cars on the PM tire truer.

Rear tires will be Silicone Super Tires. This is the ONLY aftermarket part we will be allowing.

Motor

The Stock motor is the Only acceptable motor. You are allowed to remove the reversing chip and plug the guide directly into the motor. The connector must be used. You can also remove all the capacitors on the motor.....although it makes no performance difference.

Race Date

Saturday March 25, 2016 - Track opens at 10am. The Green Flag drops at 1pm.

The Format

We will be racing 6 minute heats running the North Loop.

Race Fee

FREE FREE FREE (Bring a few bucks so we can order pizza)


That's it guys. Build em up. If you have any questions please ask here. If you need a car come see me or any of the fine Slot Car retailers in the GTA. Both Minigrid (Downsview) and Panther Hobbies have GREAT selections of cars.......as well as Race Haven of course.

We had 16 drivers out for the Canadian Scalextric Nationals and I fully expect this race will be just as big or bigger. DON'T MISS IT!!!! Saturday March 25th........put it on your calendar.

carrera chips on slot.its

:noidea:Hi,


I'm a new member to SCI.


I've been installing Carrera 132 chips in my slot.its and running them on a Carrera 124/132 digital track. When they run right my Carrera cars don't come close to their performance.


But, I have been plagued with problems: The slot.it car runs on it's own with no input to controller/hands free. Car hesitates. Car runs for a few feet and quits. Car runs ok but won't switch lanes. Or car won't run at all.


I've read that the mosfet chip on the Carrera board can get fried. Also read that mosfet chips can be replaced.


My question(s) I guess is what resistance(ohm) and peak rated voltage, etc. should these mosfet chips be. Also will the installation of resistors/capacitors/ inductors help with these problems. The Carrera digital cars/engines are covered with all these electronic doohickeys.


If you respond to this please, please Sesame Street it for me. I'm completely out of my realm when it comes to miniature electronics. Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

Thanks !:noidea:

Position tower kaput?

Anyone have a PT quit working on them? Mine has been remotely connected to the track for 5 years or so now, and generally ignored. I know it was working earlier this week, because I did glance at it several times while testing some cars with new tires.

Last night I was going to run some tests to see if they've changed the way the PT syncs with software during all of these new firmware releases. Went down and turned on the track, and my PT was dark! Strange that I had generally ignored it for 5 years and one of the few times I was really interested in it, it quit.

I tested the leads going to it (again- it has been remotely mounted for 5 years), and they were still showing 14 volts. So I took the back cover off, and checked where the leads are soldered to the circuit board. Also 14 volts. But no display.

Anyone have any experience with something similar, or have an idea what might be wrong?

Game of skill without crashes ???

Hi Folks,

This might seem like a foolish question, but is there a way to make the slot car race a game of skill without crashes being a part of it? I realize going full throttle all the time has no value, but has anyone done things like navigating obstacles where slowing down in certain places might yield quicker times, or creating random voltage reduction on a lane to add some interest?

I plan on mixing the slots with approx. O scale trains, so crashes would damage scenery, trains, and other elements on a layout. I intend to make a 3 rail O gauge railroad and a 1:43 slot crossover with a circuit to prevent crossing accidents (ample dead slot track before the crossing when a train is near).

Thanks!

Take care, Joe.

Valley Brook Raceway, Guilford CT

This track was formerly located in Branford, after the move the original copper tape was replaced with tinned copper braid.

Kelseytown Speedway, Clinton CT

This is the former Ospreyland Track, after the original owner sold his house he kindly donated the track to another club member. The track is now locared in an unheated bonus room, so it will only be used in warmer weather.

Ghost car problem???

Hello All.......

So here is the issue.......... A few days ago I was racing around the track with a friend and a few ghost cars. Everything went smooth as we completed a 100 lap race. So we decided to race again, just a 50 lap race this time. After 3-4 laps the ghost car started to slow down. About half the normal speed it was set too. So I took that ghost car off thinking it was over heating or something. Tried it the next day and same problem. So i disabled the ghost car and it runs normal when I run it with a controller. put it back to ghost car mode and after a few laps......... Slow again.

Very strange.........

Any thoughts?????

Thanks

Interesting Reading: 2016 Spare Parts Catalog

Downloaded the new 2016 Spare Parts Catalog, and a few new things jumped out at me -
  • The new HRS2 RTRs
  • MX15 motor 21,000 rpm - 150g*cm V12/4 - developed for DTM, but... :spy:
  • pinions for 1.5mm motor shafts in 5.5 & 6mm dia.
  • 7mm dia. Ergal pinions for 'standard' motor shafts
  • Maintenance Products - SP39 Gear Grease, SP40 Motor Oil & SP41 Motor Cleaner & Protector
I'm sure there's probably a few other gems buried in there somewhere, and probably not all these items will be available straight away, but it gets the thoughts somewhat flowing...

Hey from long island, NY

Hey everyone. Just getting back into slot cars since not being involved as a kid. Now, my 4 year old has shown some interest after going to a local track, so I used that as an excuse to get back into it. Just ordered a Carrera 132 digital set and I have plans to build a permanent table in my basement. Can't wait to share my progress and chat. One question is do we need to answer a random question every time I want to start a thread? Thanks everyone!

Lap Counter 2000 with hacked keyboard

Hi Folks,

I noticed that the Gregory Braun program had a keyboard option, so I tried it out on my Windows 7 laptop to see how it worked. Since I had a couple photo cells and an old keyboard, I tried an old idea of a keyboard circuit hack I saw on gaming sites years ago. Beginners luck with the Carrera 1:43 Mario set. Never been into slots before except for an old "Get-a-way Chase" game I had as a kid 50 years ago.



Slots are a lot of fun, but I am too old to crawl around the floor retrieving cars!:)

I put a piece of clear acetate on top of the photo cells http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a...esistor/1.html before gluing them, just in case of a short. The leads protrude through the top of the photo cell and are bare. I didn't want to send 14 volts to the computer. I am using a PS-2 keyboard to USB adapter with the Win 7 laptop. Love the sound effects of the Braun program!

Take care, Joe.

COX FUN CUP Revell



Catégorie : COX
Marque slot cars : Revell
Type : Beetle
Circuit : Thaï-Phong 35m x 6

Date : Jeudi 11 Février 2016
Bonjour à toutes et à tous, amis sloteurs.
le Dijon Racing Slot accueillait Jeudi soir, la COX Revell Run Cup, épreuve disputée par 9 pilotes dont Jean Pierre venu du Sud de la France ...Voyez que Dijon n'est pas si loin.  Elles étaient mimi les p'tites COX hier sur le Thaï-Phong et fières en plus. Pilotées par les Gueux DRSiens, elles ont assuré grave !!! Ci dessous, une photo du plateau des voitures participantes à l'épreuve.  Beau plateau mes amis ...si gadez !

Et quelques photos des vraies COX ci dessous.  Pour les avoir vu tourner au circuit de Dijon-Prenois (échelle 1), je peux vous dire que c'est génial comme course, puissance et glisse...une pure merveille.

Résultat de l'épreuve avec pour commencer, le très convoité podium. Ce soir c'est JEAN-DANIEL a encore été le plus fort, hé oui comme la semaine dernière, devant le 2ème JEAN FERJEUX et 3ème de l'épreuve NORBERT, qui est aussi troisième au grand gégéne en plus.  Le temps Scratch de cette soirée a été réalisé par GHISLAIN avec super temps de 12'13. Ghislain a joué de Malchance avec sa COX de base avant de prendre son mulet.  Photo du podium ci-dessous.

La suite des résultats sur la photo de la feuille de course présentée ci-dessous, pour vous faire une idées du nombre de tours et des temps réalisés par chacun.  C'est époustouflant le peu d'écart entre certains pilotes. Les qautre premiers sont dans un mouchoir.... Il y en a carrément qui se suivaient pendant 2 heures, Jean Daniel et Jean Ferjeux...et Norbert pas loin non plus.  Regardez la feuille.....

Après tout cela, le classement général a été mis à jour comme il se doit.  Nous savons que beaucoup d'entres vous suivent ce GéGène.  Notre "grand gégéne" a repris sa forme normale consécutivement aux votes de la dernière AG de l'association  ...Alors sans plus attendre, photo !!

Chers amis, nous vous donnons rendez-vous la semaine prochaine pour une nouvelle épreuve de la catégorie DTM.   Le DIJON RACING SLOT est ouvert à tous les sloteurs (ou presque) qui le souhaitent. Juste un coup de fil au 06.42.06.77.93 et hop le rendez-vous est pris.  Et comme toujours avant de vous déplacer à Dijon, appelez le club avant.  Le DRS Dijon.

2016 German Toy fair info/report from Terry at Gaugemaster;

A meeting with Rafael Barrios Jnr is always pleasurable however always too short. Regarding his Slotwings range he will continue to offer new liveries of existing Fly models although some do have subtle tooling changes such as the new rear spoilers on the Porsche 934's and the quirky looking air intakes on one of the forthcoming 917k's. With Fly switching to producing mostly Trucks and F1's in future, it will be Slotwings where we will be finding most of the sports car releases.

Tyco Magnum 440 X2 tune up

I mentioned we took some old Tycos out and tuned them up, they are still good cars and have great performance. Some asked what we did, so hence this post. You can figure on spending about $8.00 per car in parts, we rebuilt 8 cars total.

 

We bought new tires, rear axles with crown gear, spur gears, silver shoes and springs and new motor brushes and springs. Also, buy new guide pins. The rest was mostly cleaning, polishing and oiling:

 

Remove both axles and the motor from the frame. Pull off the pinion/spur gear from the motor if it is worn. Replace the front tires, as the rubber if original will be old and cracked. The HO slot car site has all the Tyco/Mattel and BRP hop up parts, plus silicone rear tires. We use a damp sponge to clean the rear tires for maximum traction. Beware that the older foam tires will usually be no good due to age, once you try the silicone slip on rears, you will love them.

 

On the Tyco Magnum 440 X2 cars, I put on the silver, or chrome front shoes (pick-ups) and replaced their springs. Polish the brush hoods so they make good electrical contact with the shoes and springs. Remove the axles and get all the lint off, then replace the rear slicks with silicone tires. You can buy a new rear axle assembly with rims and crown gear if your rims are slipping. I also replaced the spur gear on the motor. While you have the motor out, polish the comutator and clean the motor frame. If you have different armatures, there is a narrow and a wide gap, set one car up with each as they are different and you will like one better for short and long tracks respectively. If you have new brushes,(the high silver content brushes are best) replace them and the brush springs, then break the motor in with your power supply set to about 6 volts, or use a 9 volt battery. I use a dab of tooth paste on the gears to break them in, it makes a differance. Be sure to clean off all the tooth paste once you hear the gears quiet down. Use a tiny bit of silicon grease on the crown and spur gear, and a silicon oil on the motor and axles, just a tiny drop. The high silver content brushes are best.Gently twist and wiggle the chassis while breaking in the motor to seat the magnets and bearings, listen for the motor to pick up RPM indicating everything is now in alignment.

 

You can buy better magnet sets but beware! The stronger neo traction magnets will flex the chassis and make it drag on the track, requiring bigger diameter rear tires. There comes a point where the motor starts getting real hot due to having to overcome the drag of the stronger traction magnets. BRP sells a stiffer chassis, but we have yet to try it. You have to run higher track voltage when using Neo magnets to overcome the drag they cause. We only have one car with neos, the rest are using stock magnets (ceramic).

 

You can take a round wooden toothpick and carve the end to look lile a flat chisel blade, then glue a piece of 600-800 grit sandpaper over the tip of it. Use this as a comutator polishing tool to gently touch the commutator while the motor is running to polish it back up from any tarnish it developes during break in. You can use your "com stick" as I call it on all your HO slots to tune them up. You will hear the RPM jump when you do this, it's significant and really helps.

 

Tarnish and arcing at the pick-up shoes, and brush hood, plus the comutator/brush condition are critical for the best performance, so focus on that for power and speed. On one car, I have soldered real fine copper braid from the shoes to the brush hoods to help eliminate the tarnish that develops from the shoes arcing where they contact the brush hoods, and it really helps. The condition of the gears affects the power transfer and side to side slop in the rear axle, so it is also critical for handling and power. Be sure to replace the guidepin, use the newer extra wide one as they really help keep the car from deslotting in the turns.

 

Be real careful about over oiling, especially the front axle and front motor bushing, as the excess oil will get on the shoes and motor brushes and then cause carbon to form which slows the car down.
