Good attitude. I'm builing a Carrera digital "club" track. The LCs between scalectric and carrera are similar enough that if scalectric emerges as a standard, I can fit the carrera LCs with scaly solenoids and sensors and run scaly digital. I think wood track builders will find the same thing, that the digital aspects are separate from the track material and can be fitted to their application.Old guard thinking. I suppose from his perspective it is another hobby. From my perspective, it is a better hobby.
Well, I succeeded in my effort to fire someone up. Actually, I agree with you. I'm always willing to try something new, at least once. Digital slot racing was just a matter of time. I'm really surprized it hasn't hit before now but, I'm sure some basement dweller somewhere has done this on his home track and is saying, "Hey, I invented that!!" There will be growing pains and I would be reluctant to spend money on it until it is standardized and I can easily adapt a system to my routed track. In the meantime, I will wait and see if this concept sinks or swims.mike
I agree there will be some obsoleted hardware along the way, so maybe best to wait.
