Hi Drummer
QUOTE (drummer @ 3 Jan 2005, 01:41)Firstly is says to not elevate the LC or sensor track pieces. WHY?That doesn't make sense.


The only thing I can think of, is that you should avoid stray light into the sensors under the track ... but if that's the case then why not write: "avoid stray light under the sensor track"?.

QUOTE Secondly that cars should only be equipped with a black guide flagThat doesn't make sense either.


The guide flag is not used by the lane change ... it detects the LED signal from the car.

Maybe they want to sell black after market guide flags together with conversion chips?.

QUOTE (scalextricracer @ 4 Jan 2005, 09:46)I would assume that they are staying not to elevate the LC track just incase the becomes bent, the slight degree and the LC flag would stick up more than the track thus deslotting your cars.Another explanation for this could be that the small sensor PCB is mounted with SMD components. Bending the track could put some mechanical stress on the PCB ... some SMD components are quite sensitive to mechanical stress, like small chip capacitors and resistors.

You might damage the board after some time, possibly causing a malfunction?.
