I have built a lengthy 1/43 single track, analogue, routed, mountain rally stage and am quite happy with it so far.

My question is, considering a lap time of 20 to 25 seconds, and in pursuit of more realism, is there a way of making it digital to allow 2 individually controlled cars on the stage at any one time in a cost effective manner?

I ask this because I know that Carrera D143 is available and suitable to adapt for what I want to do, but has many features that I do not need.

Also, I use a variable power supply as, on my track, cars often perform much better at lower voltages, can this be done in digital?

Thoughts please.

Funny you should ask that right now...

There is a system called AC2Car. Some information to see is at and such.

Also there might be a variant along similar lines, but when it goes to bloom and then fruit is not decided yet. But it would then be MCR-BiCar (probably 'cause of the amount bicarbonate taken during the process...).

But for your purpose AC2Car seem quite splendid. You need an AC PS and a bunch of rectifier diodes. The rest you already have at home. Actually the AC PS to, but might be hidden inside some other PS. But if you got a Scalextric Sport wall-pak, then you're set to go.

Good luck and please give us some inspiration! Pics and clips!
