Just finished testing out a configuration for a Digital Rally Stage with the C7042 6 car power base.


Using 5 Scalextric single Straights to connect lane 2 on the C7042 Power Base and then using the SCX rally loops (there are configurations just for Sports digital track only). Using f1 race mode you can set the number of laps and all the other configs.

Next is to try using the Pit lane to split into 2 alternative routes and then incorporate change overs on curves and straights to encouage best line at speed.

I've ordered my USB cable for SSD and licience for SSD v5 to record timings, so looking forward to testing out my Rally event concept.

Don't know how well staggered starts would be but the chase would make it interesting. However only one track is being powered maybe only 4 cars at a time.

With rallies there is no knockout lots of stages and it's the best time over all stages that wins, assuming there are no retirments.

With track configurations more flexible than circuits making 5-6 stages in a session should be straight forward.

I tried something similar to this a while back. I routed some rally loop backs from MDF and attached some sport track to them. I had a power break in the middle of each loop back so I could connect the whole digital power base in without needing those single lane straights. Of course the problem with that is it counts laps both ways...

I also tried adding some lane changers into the mix. Of course you could only change going in one direction but I thought it was still pretty good fun.

I would be interested to see how this works out when you try with several racers...

Have fun!

Very interesting. I decided to go the analog (Sport World) route. As rally is mainly a one car at a time event, the benefits of not having to chip every car in my case are more important than having more than one car at a time on the track. I have done rallies on my SSD track, but since I have the space for two seperate tracks I decided to make a digital race track, and an analog rally track. This thread may change my opinion though, because a lot of interesting things are possible with digital like you alredy mentioned, like using pit lane pieces for alternative stages. Following this with interest.
