QUOTE (Kai @ 7 Jan 2005, 21:43)Hej Rene.
You can change from inside out to outside in simply by moving the solenoids.
We did it at Bering's place when he held the presentation of SDD
<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I found this nugget of priceless information hidden away in the SSD digital conversion kit thread!

I looked under an LC and it's true. To be precise you can convert a Right Hand Out-2-In to a Left Hand In-2-Out etc. using only a screw driver! If I had known this a week ago I could have saved myself the cost of another LC! The only tricky bit is that the tiny circuit board that controls the solenoids is plastic-melted in place - so some care is required in removal.

All the fittings to receive the solenoid and plug assembly are in place the other side of the LC (the wonders of mass manufacturing to cost!). This begs a question. If I put a solenoid assembly in on BOTH sides of the LC, and put a sensor track BOTH sides - can I drive and change lanes either way round the track? shite. Dare I try it?

nicely summed up. The interchangeability reduces the buying costs and increases the flexibility of the system greatly!

I think the main problem with a 2 way LC - making the circuit driveable in both directions - is circuit design. Each 45% turn LC needs a half straight sensor on both sides. You also need some extra sensor tracks, unless you can make them out of the unused sensor in the sensor piece (it has an IR reciever in lane 1 and lane 2)

Hello Sinclair
I tried on one of my LC. I had no problem to remove screws, but how, or with what tool, did you remove the big pin fixing the 'future mobile part' on the other end of the LC?

Edited:
It is discussed in forum tread "Lane Change Conversion" Nb 9520
