Hi,
There are lots of pictures and help in the Chipping Index and Chipping Database found at the top of the Scalextric Digital Section. You will have to look to see if there is a car of similar dimensions to the Jag to use as a guide.

Can you post some pictures of the inside of your car?

Hi Greg,
I have checked the Index, but it seems there is no post for the specific car. My problem is that although I like it very much, my friends and I are racing only digital. I will soon post some pictures of my lay out. I need to know if I can chip it before purchase.
Thanks for answering I will keep looking.

Anthony

Anthony ..... just about any car can be fitted with a digital chip, I would be very surprised if this car can not be converted ..

hi
there have been several of the smaller cars having had the digital chip fitted notably the massearti 250f and the caterham along with the moto gp bikes,so the jag should be a breeze.


one of the neatest chip installs i have seen on here was done by Andy Wallace on a caterham..

Anthony ...... my D-Type has just arrived and there appears to be quite a bit of room to fit an F1 chip into the side of the top half as the chassis is quite narrow and the body is about 1cm wider on each side. If I get the chance, I will chip it tomorrow and post the photos in the Chipping database section.

All the best - Greg

Thanks Greg,

I will check if and how you managed.

Have a nice weekend - Anthony

Hi again.
Thanks to bleep's instructions I managed to uplod pictures of my Jag D type chippinig job.
So when oppened the car I realised that there was almost no space to fit the chip without surgery !

Also very small space for the led.

The most propable position of the F1 retrofit chip in my opinion is by the driver.

With my DREMEL I cut the corner of the interior and a bit of the drivers leg.

But it is not visible when the car is closed.

This is the position of the chip after the surgery !

I had to remove the motor in order to fit and secure the led.

Almost done with the led and wiring. I decided to use separate cables to feed the lights.

I made a final test in order to be sure that cables to the motor are correct and when pressing the throtle the car move forward and that the lights go on as soon as the car is placed on the track.


The wires are in place and secured and the car is ready to be closed again.


Chipped - checked and ready to run !!!!

Well done Anthony .......


It's very satisfying to get hold of a car and work out for yourself where to place the chip and make it all work.
