Decided to replace the braids on the two SSD Boxsters today which were beginning to look rather tired. First bag of braids I picked up seemed a bit "fatter" than the originals, thought nothing of it; fitted them OK, car ran perfectly, (system knew the car ID OK), car changed lanes with no problem, got to the finish line - no acknowledgement of the car crossing the line on the readout.
Checked everything, all seemed fine - replaced the braids on the second Boxster - same problem. I therefore surmised that the thickness of these braids was the culprit, where they double back under the guide blade this must have been sufficient to raise the nose of the car enough to stop the data transmission; underside of car not parallel with track. Rummaged and found some standard, Scalextric braids, with thinner profile, fitted these instead, now all's well.
Curious that the lane change worked OK with the fat braids though.
