As it currently stands I can see no reason at all for me to switch to any sort of Digital setup. This does not mean I am a "Luddite" and think all things Digital should be banned, quiet the contary I love the concept and the technology involved, but I am a lone Home user , with infrequent races against maybe one other person. The concept of five or six real life racing partners is , alas, only a dream.

What would make me very interested would be a Digital setup where I could race against two or three "unmanned" cars, which had some form of AI so that they could change lanes to overtake etc, and provide me with some opposition. Challenger is OK, as a first step, but requires a lot more development before it becomes interesting.

I'm sure these model train chips could be fairly effective and automatic train control has been available for some time. I have to add here that my only involvment with Digital Train control was Hornby's Zero One system, which was both difficult to use and very expensive.

Is what I am suggesting feasible?, or is it a forlorn hope?.

Regards

Alan

That sound very interesting.
If you combine the Challenger with the Best Lane system (I think that's what it's called), then you nearly have it.
But how you manage to put more cars of the Challenge type on the track - I don't know? Guess they have to be digital too in some kind of way.

I love the idea of having a whole bunch of "challenger" type things happening except for one thing. When's the last time anyone beat "Deep Blue" at chess. I like winning!!!

Yes it is a feature built into the software controlling the SportWorld and Sport Digital systems. How it would work on digital, I'm not sure (lane changes), but I'm sure that you can race against a few other cars at once.

I've been thinking more about it now and with the lane changes there should be no problems since the Best Lane system chooses the raceline ofr you. So that means that when you run the challenger the first time, it will run in the fastest lane.
So it is now up to you to overtake the challenger - and when this is done, then the "fun" begins. Because what happens when the challenge no longer is in the fastest lane????
