- (F1 chip) LED in widened case mounting hole under front motor shaft, works well, but no rear lights for some reason. Front lights work. Odd.

CARRERA Ferrari 575 GTC -Evolution
(Saloon Chip?) see savage's photo post
#419 : here
Additional Post - I replaced the standard motor with a Scalextric.
Also the metal base for the sliding magnet is a pain. As I drilled then found loads of metal particles stuck to it. I'm convinced that must have blown my power base.
I had to remove the lighting chip, Used RichG lighting See here for front and rear (with brake lights) and had to remove part of the underneath plastic to allow the chip to fit.
I think it needs some more work as it is a very tight fit and the case doesn't quite fit. But a dremel or something would probably do the dash job better
CARRERA - Ford Mustang GT
(Saloon chip) see savage's photo post #419 here: here
CARRERA - Jaguar D type
(F1 chip) - I swapped the guide blade for a Scalextric one which is shorter and narrower. I was able to fit the LED at the front of the magnet area without any cutting or drilling. Just a little dollop of heat glue on each side holds it in place, the magnet is still free to move
I've taken out the polarity switch, as they won't do anything useful once the chip is in, even if you run on analogue.
The chip is intended to run on AC, and converts it to DC for the motor. The upshot of this is the car will only go forwards regardless of which way you put it on the track.
(if you're running on analogue, it still does the conversion bit, so the direction of the lane is lost)
If you used the switch between the guide and the chip - you'll notice no difference.
If you put it between the chip and the motor, you'll have the option of making the car go backwards all the time. Additional Post: Fletch's Photo post #363 and #364 is here: here

- fairly easy to do by wiring the SSD chip between the lighting board and the motor. In both cases I put the "ferrite man" on the motor as recommended by RichG.

CARRERA NOTES -
1 - Camera View Wiring Diagram - Ian's Photo Post #272 here
2 - Ian's written directions Post # 271 - Black wire from front light chip (Actually front right of the chip) has a black rubber connector on it, this once connected to the motor but is ideal dissection point to join to the yellow wire. Shown top of photo.
The red wire from the light chip (again front right of the chip) has the same not quite so clear on the photo but can just be seen in the dotted box at the bottom of the photo. It is Ideal for the green wire connection point.
If you can see the blue tape over my LED one corner nearly touches a red wire that is the only wire you need to touch on the switch side of the motor. It connects to the green.
Red and black wires from the SSD chip just connect to the green resistors in place of old sections.
3 - a tip on the Carrera models, if you slide the magnet forward it will come out of the slot.
Then you can remove the metal plate.
If you want to fit the magnet back in then you can glue it in.
4 - Wiring - green/yellow to guide blade, red/black to motor. If I remember correctly the carrera's have a switch for driving direction. You can remove this; you don't need it in digital. And gives you more space.
CARTRIX Mobil 1 NSX
( sidewinder model 0405 ) (Saloon Chip). This one was an absolute doddle to do. There was loads of room inside. I used the capacitor and ferret man supplied with the saloon chip on the motor and simply connected the yellow and green wires direct to the guide. This car flies.

(Saloon chip) chip just fits laying flat behind the led, easy. The sprung guides installed on the Ninco cars are a pain. They kept causing de-slots on the lane change straights. I inserted a collar to stop the guide from lifting and it's been fine since.

(evo) (F1 chip preferable) Saloon instructions: No room for the saloon chip at all, but extended all the wires and fitted the chip in the car body shell under the bonnet ensuring no cables touched the two drive-belts. This was a pig of a job to-do but advanced my soldering skills somewhat. Wish I had opted for the single seat chip that may have fitted on the floor pan between the drive belts

, (saloon chip) - RICH G Instructions Post 27 located here
NOTE FROM LATER THREAD BY RichG (If Doing it again I would use the magnet hole & leave the led on the wires.)I then bent it through a right angle, I drilled hole just behind the magnet and it all went in very nicely. Body went back on with no pressure or fouling and I am pleased to say that on the first outing it broke the lap record on my test track, beating the Audis & Boxter's. That was with the standard psu. So, probably not the route that everyone would want to take, but as I want six of them I was keen to come up with a neat solution.

- (F1 chip) I took it all apart and figured the F1 chip would sit nicely beside the side panel of the chassis, and no modification to the chassis would be required, I connected the red/black cables directly to the motor, having removed the socket from the originals and connected that to the (shortened) yellow/green wires. I drilled a 3mm hole for the sensor, and uses a spacer to add support to the LED.
By making the connections in this fashion, although it isn't going to be possible to just remove the motor pod anymore, it does leave the setup such that the lights are wired permanently on, and the whole job looks neat.
SCALEXTRIC Maserati Combriocorsa Trofeo
(Saloon Chip) very simple
SCALEXTRIC Maserati fangio
(classic) (F1 chip) Install chip in the tail of the Maserati , this means lengthening all but the wires to the braids and removing some of the side cockpit detail (you can hardly see it when it is all back together). Separate the tail section from the rest of the body so it stays in place when the body is removed. The Maserati hangs its tail out in spectacular fashion now and I love it.
SCALEXTRIC Maserati MC-12
-(F1 chip) Firstly, forget trying it with anything other than the F1 chip.
The board location is to the rear of the front light board, on the very edge of the spine at that part of the chassis - you'll notice the slots in the F1 decoder board, and align accordingly as near to the rear of the spine where it starts to run crossways.
It's an extremely tight fit even with the F1 board, and it's placement is critical. Keep your wiring tidy too; there just isn't any spare room inside this one.
It took me ages to get the body back on properly - talk about snug - -
Additional Post - (Saloon Chip) and Dremel It runs a little bit slow and you should connect it to a 3f Throttle - Additional Post - (F1 chip) pain in the bum and fiddly, motor wires needed extending and tough to get it all back together when done. Additional Post (F1chip) I placed the board alongside the motor rather than upfront - this was a lot easier than I thought.
General Consensus on this car - It is slow chipped using a stock motor. It is a smooth runner and nice driving car, but even factory chipped, its a DOG!!! ( I know, I own one and it really slides nicely but has no juice!!...TG )...consider re-motoring with the motor from an Audi TT OR a SlotIT motor if you must own this car in digital( unless you own a very small & tight track where speed is not an issue.)

SCALEXTRIC MG Lola 2004 lemans
(F1 chip) - Position chip on the right side of the motor after removing some of the 'ribbing' from that part of the chassis. The power leads were long enough to reach (exact length in fact) the leads of the already fitted capacitor and ferrite core. The sensor lead is also long enough, sits in the front button magnet hole (with aid of spacer). I cut the green/yellow pickup wires to length, and soldered them to the crimp connectors. The front lights for the Lola already had the wiring connected to the pickup, so the lights are on permanently without any other mod being needed - shame they are yellow instead of a bright white xenon though. Plenty of patience needed, but not a difficult conversion.

SCALEXTRIC Peugeot 307 Rally
- (F1 chip) needs motor and sensor wires extending and patience to get body back together. Additional Post - F1 chip is required, even with the F1 chip, as you need to lengthen both the motor and sensor wires to fit it, and the body is a pig to get back together afterwards - when you lengthen the wires, don't use too much slack, as you'll struggle to lose the extra wire inside the body area. Additional Post - (Saloon chip) Had to:
- cut off the little prongs designed to hold the f1 chip, the saloon chip is just the right fit between the chassis and the parcel shelf bit of the interior.
- Removed the IR from its little board and re-attach to much longer wires
- lengthen the wires to the slot guide
- motor wires were long enough, actually needed to shorten them a little
hardest bit of all was squeezing all the wires into the groove down the middle of the interior floor pan.

SCALEXTRIC TVR T400R's
(Saloon chip) sensor in front button magnet hole, board mounted alongside engine, at an angle, after removing part of the chassis rib with a dremel - dremel wont be needed if F1 retrofit kit is used - ADDED POST NOTES - C7006, Horizontal above and just to front of motor (under the bonnet basically) - the pressure from board and wires fouled the front axle so I used aluminum tubing to shroud it. Had to make a hole in the wall of the tube to prevent fouling of the motor shaft also. Additional Post - Saloon board, reasonably simple, bit of dremel (or use F1 chip) on chassis.SCALEXTRIC Vanwall
(classic)(F1 chip) the chip will go down the side of the engine as long as you insulate it with some tape
SCALEXTRIC Viper Competition Coupe
(Saloon Chip) - use provided mounts, but needed to replace leads for sensor board, as they were too short to run the way Scalextric laid it out. Additional Post - Saloon board on 1, F1 board on other. Sensor wires need lengthening, otherwise straightforward. Additional Post - Everything ok. The lights seem a bit dim ( Yellow-ish tint ) but I did not have an analogue track to see how bright they were in the first place. I used a saloon chip on this one. All the wires required to be lengthened.
SCALEXTRIC NOTES -
1 - C7005 = F1 chip..........C7006 = Saloon Chip
2 - Lighting Scalextric cars - LED's are directly connect to incoming Power (the green and yellow Wires) so the light is on if you set the Cars to the Track.
3 - LED & Track Sensors - Rich G - Lap counting & timing is a two-part process. The 1st sensor reads the LED to work out which car it is, The 2nd sensor is a beam that is broken by the Slot Guide, this determines the time.
The lane changers do not care which car it is, only weather a Lane Change is being requested or not. The Lane Change sensor piece only has detectors in the second set of holes. The 1st set of holes are in fact blank & the Slot Guide plays no part in the Lane Change.
Positioning of the Led to either side of the Slot Guide is fine. The only issue is that, the closer it is to the Slot Guide, the further you can have the back out before the Led is missed.
Ideally the Led would be mounted in the Slot Guide.
4 - Ferrite Choke information (Ferrite man) here
5 - Wiring chips - you will get loss of ID much easier with green and yellow back to front. Scalextric instructions state yellow on the left, green on the right.
SCX Audi R8
(saloon chip) Additional Post: (F1 chip) SCX RX-41 motors draw more amps than other motors and in combination with the Scalextric chip can't get enough hence the slow running. I got a Slot It Motor and adapter from Pendle Slots. Anyway F1 chip fitted vertically in left side pod of car without any butchery required, original SCX lighting left in place and works fine, just need to run it in

SCX Ford Focus WRC
(F1 chip) this was a little unusual as it doesn't have any wires it is solid state strips of copper but it is still easy enough to do plenty of room inside the body work, the motor has two strips that meet the floor pan strips direct from the pickups. I just cut these to break the connection soldered the red and black to the motor terminals and shortened the yellow and green connected them to the floor pan strips. Ensuring that nothing is in the way of the two strips that drop down from the bodywork to activate the lights which are live as soon as the car touches the track. GREAT.
This was easy to do and I can't wait to get another of the same design, though I did have a major problem with the chip F1 I was using it blew on me but I have used another and it is now working perfect.
Oh! And the LED and Chip no problem with all the room in the floor pan it's just the usual drill a small hole and drop in the led and the chip fits down the side of the chassis nicely.

SCX Peugeot 206
(red #1 Gronholm) (Saloon chip) I used an OEM Boxter Donor chip. I had to file down the front wheel drive shaft, then I fixed the LED sensor into the hole that's left from the FWD crown... using a plastic washer to give the correct height to the sensor.
The board is held in place in the same spot that the Boxter has it. I had to remove the copper guide feed, so as to shorten them. Also, I wired some Scalextric front lights from a Cadillac lmp and wired them so that they a constantly on.

SCX Williams Montoya (F1 chip) Difficult - never want to open it up again, but It fits.
1 - Be careful with all that unprotected rails inside the car. I would advise you to secure your chip and isolate the rails beneath the chip (tape). Believe me, speaking out of experience.... I guess this car doesn't have light, otherwise be careful with the rails in the upper part of the car and check if the chip doesn't prevent contact with upper and lower rails. You will see what I mean when you open up a scx car with light

(saloon chip) I couldn't wait for the SlotIT custom board. The saloon style board fits fairly easily alongside the motor, leaning toward it. Of course I had to splice to the guide and sensor wires. I used the original SlotIT wires for the guide. Fairly easy.
1 - Motor compatibility Problem?? Go : here
2 - (All chips) RichG - For best suppression the Red & black wires should be soldered to the side of the ferrite closest to the capacitor body, under the yellow gunk. Problems either running and/or stopping or ID change's (particularly with the F1 chip) Are common unless soldered in this manner.

- (Saloon chip) OEM Boxter donor. this is the easiest conversion I have ever done hole was in the right place loads of room on the chassis, the Chip I used was out of a Porsche Boxter I had ample wire length there's even room to put the chip between the motor and the pickup it was great, I wish they could all be this easy. The S6 motor is full torque on this light body and de-slots too easily so some weight will have to be added to keep the nose in place. The back end is able to rotate further than an average Scalextric car so broad-siding round corners is the name of the game. This would be great fun on a rally track.
