As some of you allready know, i just recently re-discovered slotracing, so i'm learning every day now...

I have a not permanent 17meter ninco track. Me and some friend have loads of fun on the track. I switch tracks every week, to find a perfect one to build the permanent track.

But we have a little problem... the power. The normal Ninco power supply doesn't quite do the job anymore. When we race "on the edge" (most of the time
) we are very disapointed in the power. When one car goes off the track, the other one gets more power en jumps off the track too (when driving in a corner).

Now, someone told me that a stabilised regulated power supply could work. Should a 1-15 Volts (regulated) and 2 ampere power supply do the job?

Or if you guys don't thing it'll solve the problem, please tell me what you use on the permanent home track...

Thanks guys...

I see a pretty fair standard of agreement here, to which I would add mine, that 12 volts is plenty as long as there is enough amperage and I agree with 1.5 amps per home set car. Without sufficient amperage, it doesn't matter if 12, 20 or 40 volts are there, the cars won't have sufficient power to perform properly.

Separate supplies to each lane can eliminate inter-car surges but the problem then becomes one of ensuring that each separate power supply produces exactly the same output. Unfortunataly, no matter what is printed on their labels, the true output can vary some. A single good regulated PSU of adequate amperage, eliminates that possibility.
