News from Carrera North American;

Corvette Race set
Ref; #30186
Digital
1;32 Scale


A new set will arrive this fall which we’re very excited about. The #30186 Corvette Race set is the first Carrera Corvette set we’ve offered.



It will feature the C6.R and C7.R racing cars together in one set!





This set will have 2 wired controllers, the Control Unit and nearly 25 feet of track.



The set will be available in the 4th quarter (we’re estimating late October, but until it’s on the water of course we cannot say exactly the arrival date).

This set is exclusive to the U.S. market.

> MB Slot News - Endurance race lighting kit
Posted by JEXY1 - 28-07-15 14:02 - 4 comments


News from MB Slot;

MB SLOT has developed a lights kit with some features which make it very peculiar and suitable for endurance races.



The main characteristic is a CPU which controls a PWM, which allows to have a magnetic reed switch to switch on and off the lights and to control the LED lighting times.



When the kit is completely out of power, after 3-4 seconds the lights are already completely on and functioning, when the kit is charged the lights remain functioning for at least 30-40 seconds.
When the car is out of the slot or it is stationary on the track, after 2 seconds the lights start flashing for 20 seconds, then they switch off to save the charge for the start.
In an endurance race, if the lane change took some minutes, the car would start again with the lights immediately on.
The magnetic sensor allows to switch the lights on and off with a magnet, making the operation easy and quick.
If the car is not used for a long time with lights on, and the kit runs out of power, at the very moment when the car is put back on the track, the lights kit will keep the ON position and viceversa.
The front lights flashing is different from the rear lights flashing, making the car out of lane very visible.



The leds have high brightness and they give a very bright light, but directed by the protective lens.
When the car brakes the rear lights light up more than at usual driving.

The kit PCB is the smallest you can find for sale with these features, and it is one of the smallest and lightest of all.
Every single led is directly connected to the PCB so, in case a led broke, it would not compromise the functioning of the other leds.
We have added an inductor, which was not essential but necessary with some motors which send interferences and impede the perfect functioning of the lights kit.

The lights kit can also work with a standard switch, but it must be connected to the kit power supply and not together with the magnetic switch.
