Great work David. It looks seriously slim and well engineered.

Please send me a PM with the price when you are done figuring it out. My thoughts are still on SSD compatible switches, but it might be a too big nut to crack for me and I am eager to put the router in the track now.

Again, well done David!

Hi David,

So does this work just like a SSD lane changer, ie it reacts to the led on the incar chip?

As I am just about to build my track I would be interested in some more details and prices

Thanks

Michael

BLST flippers are controller entirely by the presence and proximity of cars. The cars follow the race line when they are spread out, and are forced side by side when close together. BLST does NOT use whatever lane changing triggers the base control system has. If you want to control your own lane changing, you do not use BLST changers. Simple as that.

I am going for a routed BLST track as soon as David and i discussed the details,
this system is just fantastic.

I will use it in combination with Oxygen or Scorpius if have not decided which one yet but one could also use others.

I have seen excellent videos of the system in action, but not a lot of discussion of the practical pieces of the system. I understand that now it can use any digital system. What exactly does that mean? If I used Ssd, could I choose between Ssd or BSLT racing--that is, between the racer controlling the LCs and the automation of the Lanechanging?

Choose? Only during construction. You can't turn on/off the BLST system, afaik, at least not without some complex wiring and design work. If you want to throw in a few non-BLST lane changers, you certainly could. Usually, though, it's the pit lane changer that is driver controlled, and the rest are BLST. Otherwise you might lead to confusion as to when you can and cannot change lanes, not to mention when it's safe to be right next to someone else who might change lanes. The Anti-collision is half the point of BLST.
The cars still need their chips to be controlled, and to make manual lane changes, and effect any lap counting the system uses. The BLST lane changers are otherwise blissfully ignorant of what kind of system is making the cars go.

See post #5 above, he is the master of BLST.

Cheers!

From what I have seen it will divert the "slower" car.

That means it will probably divert the first and third and let the second and fourth go straight.
