I ordered 4 sets from Slotcar-boutique.com (thank you atobit for sharing that link) as none of my regular local suppliers had them in stock.They are close to be released by Slot It too I think, I saw a FB post from a distributor with the boards pictured, including the electronics to keep the lights on for a while when off track.
Should be if you read the "manual", apparently the light on the SP44 light kit are controlled by the C-chip. Besides the regular on-of and brake lights , the SP44 now also has an "emergency" Flashing of all connected lights when the car de-slots or is stationary for more than 2 sec. Much like we've come accustomed to from the Z-Machine light kits.I am really curious about the slot.it light kit for this chip and what new functionality it will add.
I hope that there is more than just what is available with the B1 chip.
Hmmm, that's exactly the same length of the Hall sensor flat cable I'm using to dry test fit my O2 components on the chassis and in the body.Hi Gio thanks,
I agree 50mm is not ideal, its a little fiddly but all I could source was either 50 or 150mmHmmm, that's exactly the same length of the Hall sensor flat cable I'm using to dry test fit my O2 components on the chassis and in the body.
50mm is long enough for mounting as pictured in this topic (Flat cable from chip to interior exactly above chip) But if you mount your light kit (as) low (as possible) to the inside of the doors..
...50mm is too short to be able to lift the body and place it on its side next to the chassis..without disconnecting the flat cable.
Got any 75mm flat cables?
With kind regards
I believe that at the time I made my comment the manual was still being written.Should be if you read the "manual", apparently the light on the SP44 light kit are controlled by the C-chip.
Well yes, much like the Z-machine light kits. I guess its a simple way to have some "safety margin" to not overload the brake lights which on the old SP17 would burn continuously at their brightest when stationary.I believe that at the time I made my comment the manual was still being written.
Curious about the stationary flashing function: so even if the car has power just the fact that is stationary will put the lights in flashing mode?
I would have preferred a flashing mode when the car would enter pit mode as some GT3 cars do in 1:1 racing.
We made a long list of suggestions a while back about the light functionalities. Hope that we get most of those suggestions implemented.
See picturewhat is the direction option (forward/reverse)?
