Hi all,
I've posted a few times with problems with track, some cars working, some not, with help from here I have a track that works fine for most cars, so I assume the track is ok.

I bought 6 new cars off eBay, all look new, in their original cases, I think they are genuine.

2 of those are as in the title, different livery but same cars, neither of those work properly.

I can hold one at 45 degrees off the track and it revs up, put it down and it may go one length of track or half the circuit, then it just stops, nothing to do then but pick it up and try again with little success, well none, sometimes there is no life in the cars anywhere on the circuit at all.

The other one is pretty much the same except that had no life but a bit of tinkering last night with the braids and trying to ensure the metal clip on the internal braid bit is touching the braid, I bent it up slightly, slight bit of go, then dead again.

Not sure what to do, strange they are both the same car that don't work, how can I establish and correct what it is?

Also one is limited edition 447 of 2000 but not sure which one is what anymore, one is Sara in blue paint, other is carphone warehouse in mainly red paint, anyone know which is which?

Thanks,
WDW.

Hi,
Thanks guys, I will check the chip type out and let you know, the other symptom one of them has is it may go ok for a few pieces of track, then suddenly the driver, the one inside it as it isn't any of us, floors it flying off the track into oblivion on the next bend, well not quite that dramatic but basically full throttle with the trigger not pressed.

They are the Rev F type, so that would be the problem from reading your helpful posts.

I have spent hours today cleaning the part of my track I had less power on and it's all good again, I did try one of these cars again and it did seem to work ok for most of the track but then drops off, other cars are fine, so maybe those cars need the cleanest track to run on, or it's just the chips.

Where do i find out about MIH chip upgrading?
