The header is a very curious title. A combination of many extremes. As far asmy knowledge goes and the information I have got, all these combinations have not been done before. It all started when I started driving on my Carrera track with Oxigen...when this worked I thought I see more possibilities.
Carrera lC integrate into wood, this would work, but will I get a chip in a Ninco Rally Raid?? and would sending a signal from the chip to Carrera LC's eye pick it up, given these cars are much higher on the tires?
Given the Covid Year I got all the time (club closed) and eventually the members of Slipstream Holland were able to ride the first trial on this new track on 16-07-2021..and successfully, found a few small improvements..but a lot had fun.

see the film on you tube; slightly less qualitative than the mobile phone

Freaking brilliant Henri! The track looks really nice, I really like the layout.
The music in background not so much! ;-)
Lot's of questions from me:
  • What software did you use for counting laps?
  • Are the lane changers only carrera? Or you have also Ninco lane changers?
  • Are you running pure oXigen now or is a carrear hybrid?

Thanks for the compliments. The music is an official theme of a Dakar race ever..that's why ..lol

the software is pc lapcounter: Pc Lap Counter - Slot racing software - Lap Timer - Lap Counter - timing software
There are 4 Carrera LC switches, you cannot combine systems.
I think they call it Carrera Hybrid, the commands come through the air to the chip and not through the track as Carrera does.
However, the software on the chip does see the switch eyes of the lc Carrera.

greetings Henri

Just to clarify: if you are running in hybrid mode then you need to have a carrera powerbase on the track? Otherwise I do not see how the lane changers get activated unless you have changed the electronics in the switches.

yes you are absolutely right i have the power base (cu) under the track it is only connected to the LC of carrera so no short circuits ect. port 4 always activated

Thanks Henri. That was something that I had in mind as well: connect the LCs to the power base and run DC on the rails from an adjustable PSU.
But then decided to bite the bullet and got myself oXigen lane changer drivers and installed 20 of them the past summer.

I thought I read your story somewhere on the forum, you could score LC oxigen cheaply.
That's great, this way you can drive on all oxygen tracks.
At the moment I'm saving Nico track parts (hard to come by) the LC runs shorter and nicer, so that I can convert it to oxigen lc later, a new adventure for a new track..I'm curious

Hi Henri
Thanks to you and Mr Flippant (for the link), I find myself owing several of these beasts. I love them. Just out of the box, remove the magnets, add a ton of lead and they are great fun.
I want to digitalise a bunch of them: can you please show some pics on how you have installed the chip on these?
thanks

sorry the clip is in dutch.
But maybe it helps something.
I don't know which chip you are going to use, but because I use carrera LC I have to use the c chip.
the pully on the car is in the way, I moved it to the other side of the car

Thanks Henri. I will have a look. In my case I use SSD LC, which means that my IR LED will have to sit on the guide drop arm.
This is going to be interesting ;-)

I have another question: in another clip on Schlessor Buggy, you mentioned that you did 3 days of tuning. What did you do????
I do not have the Schlessor Buggy but all the others (BMW, VW, Mitshubishi) they go really well out of the box (with on magnet and some lead).
