After dusting off my scalextric track from out of the loft, I was gutted to find that my powerbase was faulty. So a quick trip to the hornby visitor center (just round the corner from me) I managed to pick up a 4 car digital conversion kit with straight lane change for £50. I brought some more track and LH pit lane and was left wanting a little more. So after ordering a RH pit lane with another straight and two more corner lane changes I set out modifying some current track prices.




I'm really please with how they've come out. I'm having a little get together at the weekend so will post some pics of the track and hopefully upload a vid.

Just ordered some cars that I'm gonna digitalise and fit lights too.

Great first post, Schulzy! Welcome to the forum! Let us know how the "out to out" lane changer goes. I also like the look of those rejiggered crossover curves.

I find that quite impressive what you have done the there, I have seen it done before somewhere on one of the slotcarforums I think, I know its not that hard to do really but just the thought of getting the pieces to join together kind of makes me think - no, I'm not even going to attempt that!, lol, for fear of messing it up.

Agreed you entered the forum in style with that first post of yours
, well done to you.

Not too sure about the cross-over curves. There are already enough body contact opportunities in digital without them, as many of us have learned. Neat mods on your part, Schulzy, just the same; especially the lane change esses.

So the milloin dollar question is: "which one is the preferable one?" or better put: If you'd have to concentrate on the one coming out best, and the other as say a test object (to get the learning curve up in the right direction) which one is the one for keeps?

Cheers,

Gotcha! pretty logic actually, but sometimes you just need someone to point it out to you...
