My new layout uses the SCX Rally Chrono, SCX Chicane and Scaley Sport Track for the rest. I've noticed a reduction in power on certain bits of track.
Whats the best option to create a consistent voltage throught the whole track?

I've looked at the SCX and Sport Boost cables, would they work with SCX sport combination, if so how? Or are ther better options?

Please be aware I'm a total noob when it comes to electrics so keep it simple!

Thanks in advance.

I'm not quite in agreement with Screwneck, if you use power taps at every straight you will have perfect power. If you have power drops then yes you should sort the connectors but a power tap will bypass the bad joint and give you smooth power.

When I used to make 4 lane analogue tracks there were so many joints that I would never have got them all 100% so I would put power taps everywhere just to make the tracks as even as possible.
