4 Lane Digital?

1934 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  boggy marshall
Hi all
This is my first post after joining the forum so bear with me if I'm going over old stuff but Ive searched the forums and cant find the answer.
Ive been an analogue racer for many many years and have a permanent track of classic track with 4 lanes le mans starts and 4 lane pit lane,the question is can I extend the circuit to include a large section of digital?
Can I have a 4 lane start and can I keep everything in the classic part or would pits and lemans starts have to go (I dont mind if pits have to go as I could sell on and have digital pits)and apart from the track sections what else would I need? Would one power base power all 4 lanes? And which power base,the old 6 car or the new one
I hope the community can help me and I hope Im not asking stupid questions that have been asked before,many thanks in anticipation

No. The APB (C7042) now has, or will have, suitable and better upgrades than the C7030. When buying your first one, there's no contest.
I believe that because of the way SSD works, 8 cars is not possible. Even one additional car makes the encoded data stream too long for reliable and responsive operation of all cars.
On the bright side, if more than 6 cars is important to you, but you've already got a heavy investment in SSD, oXigen will be an easy and relatively painless upgrade path, allowing up to 20 cars on as many lanes as you care to cram in. oXigen and a dozen cars would make 4 lanes a lot more fun, as I agree that 4 is too many for 6 cars, even for only part of the lap.
The tracks of the digital club I'm racing with are all 2 lanes, even after some experimentation with 4 lanes. It only takes two cars to crash, so it's a lot more about experienced drivers that makes the difference for 6 cars on 2 lanes fun, or carnage.

Please post further oXigen questions in that forum. For now, your answers are:
1) Lap counting is magnetic and easy, but SSD lap counting works for Cars 1-6.
2) Err... a lot. oXigen is the next step up in performance and will cost more. Prices are, however, projected in the oXigen FAQ.
3) Nope. SSD lane changers work with oXigen as is. No mods needed.
