After having received the N-Digital Master track set for a surprise Xmas present I set it up and here is my initial impressions. Firstly I was under the impression that it came with a sturdy plastic storage box, but all I got was the cardboard box it came in. Secondly, the instructions are terrible. Just setting the track up took a while as it does not come with a detailed piece by piece description of what goes where. I grabbed the small track map in the box only to discover after putting together about 5 pieces that it referred to the old Master Track design. Why was this even in the box? I eventually used the picture on the outside of the box. The instructions for using the different race modes and such is also terrible and I guess it will be a matter of working it out for yourself with trial and error. After throwing a chip in one of my cars ( Scalextric Porsche ) I tried out the track. The amatuer mode is OK and the proffesional mode is much faster but very uncontrollable I found. With a magnet in it would be better. I had to go around at quite a few track joins and bend out the rather flimsy plastic lining that the guide runs in. At many joins it bends in and will actually jam the car to a near stop. I am also having trouble with the double crossover bend section. The cars come into this piece and come to a dead stop as the guide again hits the inner plastic lining at the lane change section. Not very impressed so far. After about only 10 minutes of trying the lane change feature I looked at the button on the back of the contoller to find all the matt black paint on the controller was coming off onto my finger. Spanish quality at its best!!! Lastly is the dead spot system used to trigger lane changes. What a pain this is. If you happen to come around a corner a bit slow near a lane change the car just stops dead and requires a push to get going again. I guess the idea is to have lane change sections only on fast sections of track. I belive SCX doesnt have this system and Im not sure about Carrera or SSD. The track pieces are very soft and bumpy I find. It is not smooth going on Ninco track that is for sure. The family member obviously bought me Ninco as I have spoken about it mostly for the past 6 months or so but I think in hind sight that Carrera might have been the go, or possibly not even digital, as it seems it may not have all the bugs worked out yet. I will keep playing around with it and see if I can iron out the litle problems so far.
