Hi All,
I have several Japanese import JGTC cars with pit girls
making there way to London Town.

Should I have ordered the Japanese plug & go chip that fits into these cars.. will these run with SSDC ?

I read somewhere its possible to use an English C7006 chip with a slight mod to the cars module chip case... but having said that maybe it will hold a better resale value if I use an original Japanese chip.

I've just chipped 5 of my 6 Scaley JGTC cars. The F1 chip C7005 works better than the C7006. The C7006 includes a light board that you don't need on the JGTC cars as they do not have lights.

This is the way you need to wire it all up using the C7005.

The module is designed specifically to accept the saloon car chip C7006, It's an easy mod, the module then becomes just like the scaly quick fit chip, you can put it in any of the cars with just one screw to hold it in place. Regards Jason

I disagree. If you look at the link Minardi posted you need to file off parts of the plastic module and drill holes for the LED. I did this with 2 of my JGTC cars using the C7006.

Then I thought "Hold on, the F1 chip will fit in the module without you having to file anything down or drill any holes...." and it does.

However, you still have to separate the metal contact plates for obvious reasons, but that is the only "modding" you need to do.

PS - I'm not sure if the C7005 was available when the JGTC cars were released hence them using the C7006.

I have a bunch of the Japanese JGTC cars coming over... with pit girls, new in boxes. I am not sure if I should also purchase some of the Japanese chips that clip straight in.

My girlfriend is in Tokyo, she managed to tracked them down for me.

i took the plug out, removed metal tabs and chipped it as any other car. i won't be swapping chips with any other cars so didn't see the point lol hot glued the led in place and slotted the chip in over the plug, odd bit needed trimming but no big deal. got a raybrig nsx, esso supra, 350z and 2 skylines, although the skylines are not the quattrox ones. they are some of the best i have! nsx seems the most tail happy mind u! lol

Shoot me a PM with prices when you're ready to sell them.

Personally I would sell the chips separately - there should be a huge demand for them as Scaley sold the car for a while but never sold the chip. I recall a conversation with Adrian Norman when they were just starting these and I was extactically extolling the virtues of the plug in concept. I'm pleased that they realised the possibilities and rolled out DPR straight after. They never sold the Quattrox chips as they didn't have the rights to do so.

Actually I thought the Quattrox approach was better, but the chips were too big. With a really easy plug you would have only needed a dozen DPR chips, where in reality I have 50 and they are permanent fits (+/-)

Thanks for the replies everyone.

From what I gather there were not many chips left. So many cars will still require soldering.

Most of the cars will be sent out tomorrow... and some simply brought over in a suitcase.

We found the cars tucked away in the countryside in a little Japanese village toyshop. I thought they were in Tokyo but after chatting to my girlfriend she said she got a tip from a toyshop owner in downtown Tokyo.
