This is a premature question as I haven't got an SSD (but am considering buying one): my track will end up being a hybrid of classic and sport track on grounds of cost. I understand that the slot is deeper on sport track than on classic. Indeed, I have to file the botton of the blade on my Ninco cars so that it doesn't foul the bottom of the slot.

On SSD, where the blade depth is obviously sensitive in terms of registering a lap, does the blade go deeper than with an analogue car and would I end up having problems registering laps because I would be forced to shave a little off the bottom of the blade so that it will traverse the classic track sections properly?

Thanks

Hi Injectorman (and others),

point taken and fully appreciated.

The issue that I have is that the upgrade will come as a christmas present and will cost well over £200 as it is. My wife is already making mutterings such as "will you get to use it? will our son really play with it too?". While the track is the cheap part, I'd still have to add at least £70 more to replace the remainder of the track (and that's a heavily discounted price too). I fear that this could be stretching santas budget just a little too much.

What I'd really like to understand is if the standard blade that comes on the stock cars in the kit will traverse classic track without modification. I've no wish to modify the blade unless it wont fit and I've absolutely no wish to modify the blade if it means that it wont clock the laps.

If I absolutely have to replace the whole circuit I'd rather know before I buy anything. That way I can make the correct decision and not be left with something unfit for intended purpose.

Thanks

I read the first bit with interest and ignored the second bit.

I'm typing this from my hospital bed...

Wife's not too pleased


I should have read all of it before I got the heat gun out .....
