QUOTE (darainbow @ 4 Dec 2004, 18:08)QUOTE (SWoRd @ 4 Dec 2004, 17:21)A more appropriate way would be to sense the throttle position for false start detection. That way the cars furthest from the sensors won't get away with false starts. Maybe it's already done that way? ... I don't know because my digital sets haven't arrived yet
Carrera detects the throttle position for false starts. Im pretty sure scalectric does it this way too.
Yes it does. A false start is given if you squeeze the trigger before the green light. Even if your car doesn't move
This is the obvious and correct way to do it IMHO.
I've been having a lot of fun playing SSD's ARcaDe mode with my lone Skoda Fabia digital conversion (for lack of imagination, and because I never had driven it before, I extended the digital layout into Scalextric's #4 plan). Today I tried lining the car up at
the white line and the system cut power before I had completed a lap, so clearly you have to be away from those sensors when you start.
A starting grid is a neccessity for a digital race, no? With more than 2 cars on a 2 lane track qualifiers will have to be run to determine grid position. All moot if there is no bloomin' grid in the first place!
