Hi guys,

Although this is specifically for me to understand the product better, considering all you PRO X specialists out there, I thought I'd put it live so others get a better idea as well.

I'm on my way to building a 2 lane Digital replica of the old Kyalami circuit, and by my trackplans and available space, I would like to clarify Carrera's limits on these items..

1) "Out the Box" the way I understand it, can have up to 4 drivers on a 2 lane track, correct?

2) How do you hadd more drivers to a two lane track? Can you connect another "black Box" into the circuit, and would there be any complications in that with coding between black box 1 and black box 2??

3) I'm trying to understand that, the basic set, again "OTB" can have 4 ghost cars, and two drivers. Does this mean Carrera only supports 6 cars on a track, or is is it 6 cars PER BLACK BOX??

Answers here will then tell me, for example, if I have 6 friends round, and all six want to race, and a black box only supports 4 controllers, then what???

Thanks in advance for the answers..

Best Regards

Big Al

Thanks guys,

I was hoping you'd have more clarity having already experimented so much. Chris, your site and posts have been most helpful, but, without having had "on-hand" experience, I can't get my head around the "channels" story.
The way I understand you Chris, there are 8 channels. you can ONLY have 4 individual drivers correct? But with enough power, you could have 4 drivers, AND 4 Ghost Cars yes?

I'm just thinking, if someone wanted to put up a biggish 4 lane track, it's still not going to support more than four drivers, no matter what the track configuration is?

I still don't understand what's the difference between Ghost and Pace Car however..

Thanks again Westbys and Chris..

Thanks Chris,

agreed, always require a marshall or two, and, yes, on a 2 laner, four drivers would be fine with say two or three Ghost cars..

I look forward to what happens with the Pace Car, try it out when you get a chance?

Regards

Thanks Steve,

us without the goodies arec ertainly relying on you guys with them to clear up any confusion. My allowable space certainly doesn't cater for more than four drivers anyway, however, it's worhtwhile to know exactly what the products capabilities are, and limitations..

For this discussion, I think my answers have been satisfied, but, I DO see a requirement where Carrera would have to release some upgrade, allowing the second powerbase to be added to the same curcuit, and thus allowing up to 8 drivers on each controller.. (Ala Mini Davic racing)

Hoping to be successful on a few bids on eBay, and if all goes to plan, should have a kit and at least two cars to start playing with.

Cheers chaps

Regards

Al
