Thanks. There seem to be pro and cons to all methods of programming. That method is nice because it doesnt require dip switches on the car, making the package smaller. However, everyone needs to stop racing to code a car.

The carrera method is nice because you can code cars while others are racing. Its easy to take off one of the ghost cars, code it to a differnt channel without disrupting the other cars. On the down side, you need access to the dip switches.


I wonder how SCX does it.

In my opinion dip switches are super-geeky. Typical Germans!

I thought so too but they are the only format that will support the large format races. Typically after a heat, cars are left trackside to mark their position. When a heat begins people put a color sticker on their car and put their car on track. Now they will flip the dip switches and put the car on track. With digital, heats will be important NOT because you have to run every lane, but because you have to run against every person.
