Damn, what an exciting topic. Really cam't leave here for long, too much happens.

The whole concept sounds good, especially for the home racer who doesn't have alot of room and is sick of two car, two lane racing.

Most of the tech questions have been asked but here's a real simple one.

How many volts/amps is the power supply? It's gonna have to be substantial.....
It would seem that the use of a high quality Parma or PM controller will be deemed completely invalid with this new system. Hand controllers are not really the strong point of any manufacturer.
I'm actually super surprised by the interest this topic is generating. For me it doesn't really matter how much it gets talked about I won't start to believe until I read some reviews and then I'll make my final decision as I see it in action and then perhaps have a go.
I seriously for now don't think slot racing as we know it in damger of being taken over by digital.
To pull things into perspective, when is this product due out?
