Hello all. I have a digital scalextric set. i have been running saloon type cars (16 dirrent types all chipped) on it for over a year now and have had no problems.
I bought a F1 style car and chip on the week end. Put the chip in the car and it went around the track 4 times then just stopped. Afetr about 30 seconds the car just moved forward an inch (25.4mm for you euro people) after another 20-30 seconds it does it again. the car keeps doing this. If you press the controller to go nothing happens. the car will continue to do this with both controllers unpluged as well.
All the sallon cars work fine. The shop i bought the car and chip from have changed both chip and car (one at a time) and the same happened with the new chip and new car??????. (changed one at a time to try and eliminate one or the other)
As i have said the saloon cars work fine anyone have any ideas.

yes this is a strange one. the model shop i bought the cars from does not have a clue as well.

I have now tried the following.
I have removed the chip and put the car back as a analogue car. I have put an analogue power base on the track with analogue controllers. The car runs fine like this.
I then refitted the digital chip and the car ran for about 10 laps then same fault. All i can assume from all this is that the chip is at fault. But i have put two different chips in the cars??

I have rang hornby help line and they have never heard of this fault. AAAAARR Help
