sorry for even more slighty related thread necromnacy, but I have a question

I am moving away from 1/32 going to HO that I can race at home with my daughter. I am going to make some connectors so that I can plug my parma eco controllers into AFX track. Am I correct in my thinking that with the resistor based eco controllers this should just work?

Also, I have a slot.it controller with the chip for scalex sport track. Would I be correct in thinking that this is wired for positive polarity, The AFX track is negative polarity, and by plugging this controller in I might hurt it? The variable speed selection would be handy for my daughter, or should I say, so im not constantly putting cars back on the track.

I have just had a look at my controller and I think I also have the positive polarity. Pictures below, I cant remember what half of this stuff is. Any help would be appreciated.



I think this is the negative for scaley sport, It has the 3.5mm stereo jack



a close up of this



the other cartridge I forgot I had, Im assuming this is positive



A connector for the cartridge im assuming is positive, to fit 3 pin club tracks



and this is the internals of both cartridges.

SO I have a couple of questions with this. The first is what type of connectors are those on the positive cartridge? Secondly, the AFX track doesnt have the brakes circuit. Will I need brakes for an electronic controller to work? If I do, is there a way I can bypass this, like a dummy plug for the 3rd wire to plug into?

very good point


In any case im reasonably happy with your confirmation of my thoughts. As far as I can remember the second cartridge was bought to use at a trans am race at pendles, and I would have only bought it if I needed positive rather than negative, as I already had 3.5 stereo jack to 3 pin adaptors for my parma eco's.
