"oXigen for dummies" question(s)

3624 Views 41 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Profoxcg
Yes it's me, the confused slot car fanatic who has barely enough skill and knowledge to solder a SSD chip in a Scalextric car.

I have many questions but one question will do for now....
I previously understood that there would be no need to buy the "O2 lane change driver" for the straight Scalextric lane changer?

How much is the O2 lane change driver?
My track design has 8 straight lane changers and I'm worried about money and having to solder. (my budget is limited and I have many chips, controllers and a dongle to purchase)

Thank you for your time and patience Slot Car Enthusiasts

PS. I am not going to race in analogue by the way if that's relevant

I know very little about Davic, but I have to assume that oXigen presents some advantages over it.

That would be putting it mildly

Having raced several endurance events in both 1/32nd and 1/24th on Davic they did some great pioneering work on getting digital racing on the map.
However the system has its flaws and needs a lot of care to keep it running proprly.
The biggest advantage of O2 would be the separation of the chip signal from the track current, and its easy installation (no need to rewire your track, ease of programming etc etc) and that it will be available via a well sorted dealer system.
I guess the biggest achievement of Davic would be that it inspired Maurizio to devellop Oxigen

with kind regards
