They're piggy-backed/stacked on top. In the first pic you can see the old ones labeled R010. In the second one you can see they're a little messier, and have a R01F printed on them.
I can see what is being done, but I'm not sure I'd be capable of doing it. I might just have to send away for it if I can't muster the courage to try it myself. ;-)
Trust me, Colin, "a little messier" is a compliment, and a comparison only to the machine mounted components. I know how hard it is to get an iron in such tight spaces. I'd probably burn a hole through something important if I tried.
I was only trying to get Gordon to notice the difference.
Your skill in performing the mod is why I'd suggest other people send theirs off rather than risk it.
The good news is that few people will need this, as the APB is head and shoulders above the old 6 car base where power is concerned. This would be for people who really push those limits regularly. I'm thinking people running 6 gmyers upgraded chips in high speed, high downforce cars. ;-)
Nice work Riko just what i needed for my big cars although i will feel a bit sad replacing the pbpro simple h as its done such a great job. put it away for a breakdown day maybe,
Now wheres my soldering iron.
Thanks for the offer to do this. I'd just like to confirm before I go ahead, as I don't have a variable power supply at the moment, that I can continue to use 2 scalextric PSUs until I get one?
I'll take that back, if you do this mod and use a standard psu tyou will get more speed as the power goes unchecked to the rails, compared to a standard APB it is +2 Volts! So you can more for less. Super! Super Advanced Power Base! SAPB
