QUOTE (Tropi @ 26 Nov 2004, 11:21)Although I don't KNOW the answer to this, I must make the comment that, if the LC did not reset after switching lanes, then all following drivers could not know whether they needed to hit their LC button or not, even to stay in their present lane.
That would be a crazy situation and I find it hard to believe that could be so!
Please tell me that it is not the case.
I can help here:
The lane change flipper DOES stay in its last position.
Scenario: Car 1 has just changed lane. The flipper is in the 'change lane' position (not 'straight ahead'). Car 2 approaches the lane change curve.
Option 1: Car 2 driver wants to stay on this lane. The driver doesn't push the 'lane change' button. The flipper senses this as the car passes the track sensor and the flipper is pushed to the 'straight ahead' position. Note that the flipper may or may not still be in the 'change' position - it could have been dislodged from its last position by a passing car - it doesn't matter. Car 2 stays on the same lane.
Option 2: Car 2 driver want to change lane. The driver pushes the 'change lane' button. The flipper is pushed in to the 'change' position. Car 2 changes lane.
In short: If you want to change lane then push the change lane button. If you don't want to change lane, don't press the button.
I hope this helps.
