- First light-equipped bridge of SCX ever.
- Height allows trackset layout to run underneath.
- Complete bridge: no need for track-elevation systems, direct connection at trackset level.
- Composed of 4 track sections:
~ 2 concave tracks
~ 2 convex tracks (concave+convex+concave+convex)
~ 10 Tapering Borders with Barrier (Washington type)
- The slightly-curved track sections provide for a much smoother transition, thus allowing cars to maintain speed when crossing it.
- Elegant design



Editorial note: This is interesting. I wonder what else we'll start to see in this line... products that are tapping into the always-on current of the digital track.

We have seen this by Ninco (dune), but with borders like these it looks better.

Add some fence on the wall, and this will be great.

I assume the lights are underneath the bridge, for the track section running under?

How about traffic lights? Or a speeding camera with working flash that fires when you drive past too fast? lmfao.gif

Wow, that bridge is really cool. With new products like this coming online it kind of makes me reluctant to do anything permanent with my current layout. Who knows what will be next. Maybe some borders that allow for accessories like working street lights to be directly plugged in? Working flagmen?

that bridge looks very cool. very useful for a non-permanent track as well.

Fwick, i have 3 normal scx dtm cars and the 3 digital dtm's from the set.
They are great, even when running non magnet. Beautiful lights.
Very good handling on smaller (home)tracks. Magnet low for beginners or kids, magnet high position or removed for more experienced guys.
Also very equal performance for all 3 (mercedes, opel and audi).
If you are a scaley person you will have to get used to the noise i think, but i love them. thumbsup.gif

Nuro, is that car analog? I don't see the "X" symbol?? question.gif


I love the dtm series from scx though I can't compare to other brands. I've put a lot of miles and crashes on these cars , they are solid and fun. dribble.gif
