Just bought Sport World

As some of you might know, I have been racing Scalextric Sport Digital since short after It's release, in fact It was this forum that suggested me to buy SSD instead of Sport World. Glad I did, never looked back to analog and have been happy racing digital ever since. But....It happens I like (slot) rally and have been driving chipped rally cars on my digital track. Track design without magnet becomes even more important, as magless rally cars more than once can miss the sensor for LC. Besides that, rallying is isually done with just one car on track, so no need for 4+ cars at once.

I have the C7030 PB pro and can switch to analog If I wish, but as It stands, It seems I have the possibilty to have 2 tracks in my garage within a few months. One dedicated digital track for F1/touring/endurance, and one analog rally track. I have run rallies with PB Pro and SSDC and really liked the options It has to offer when It comes to timing. So my analog rally track really needs a timing system, without the need of a PC connection. Than Sport World came to mind. I remembered a fellow slot racer had 2 Sport World packages and he was so nice to sell me the 2nd package for a good price (thanks Eve
) and It has arrived yesterday. I am looking forward to install Sport World on my (to be designed) rally track. Is there anything I overlook or should take care off ? I started It up yesterday and noticed version 1.05, so It seems that is all good. I am glad I can use my digital controllers, not sure though wether I can use my Slot It with digital cartridge, or should that be analog ? Any other hints, tips ? Thanks !

I can confirm that the Sportworld does use the same throttle sensing as the C7030 so your digi cartridge SCP-01 should be fine...

The "Rally" options are intersting using that race mode... Do you have the manual? as some features of rally mode take a bit of getting your head around as cars lap in turn then the times are aggregated at the end...

The advantage of rally mode is you can use a "single slot" principle with a single crossover in the circuit to give greater running length...

Sportworld works... The "ghost car" mode actually records throttle position so you can actually race against your best times... but not in rally mode

yeah the manual should be on the CD...

Its 24MB so can't upload a copy for you here... If you find you can't get to it... drop me a PM and an email address and i will mail it on.
