Hi everyone

About 10 years ago I had a couple of plastic tracks, bit because they were in a shed after a while they would corrode or wrap so I'm just about to start a routed track. I'm going to use a few bits of scalextric digital parts, advance 6 car powerbase, couple of straight lane changers and pit entrance and exit, and blend them into the track, because I'm lazy.

Quick question, the powerbase records laps and time etc, will there be a problem if the powerbase is between the pit entrance and pit exit if a car goes into the pits? Will it not register that its used the pits? Hope that makes sense

Thanks

Dave

If you get a computer and use the ability of the C7042 to run an RMS program like SSDC then you can have pit lane sensing (PM me) to let the computer know you are in the pits.

If you use it stand-alone then you cant have the C7042 beside the pit lane, you need it before or after.

Hi Dave .... Welcome to our little Forum


For this configuration, SSDC needs to you set a parameter that tells it where the pit lanes entrance & exit are; no great shakes ...... you will find all the options on the tool bar just below Help.
You will need to select a valid COM port but not the one that SSDC will communicate to the APB with.
Next to that the is a drop-down which will say "NONE" if you have not set it.
Finally, click on the chequered flag and set the option that suits your track.

All the best - Greg

Thanks for the replies. As it's just going to be a small set up and for just a bit of fun I probably won't be using it linked with a computer. So I will just make sure my pit exit is before the powerbase. Thanks for the help.
