Hi

Hairy racer here.

Lets see if we cannot help each other with this and work out exactly which component is preventing the racing from lasting more than a few laps for some slot car racers.

By following the test plan it should become evident which component is the root cause of the issue reported.

Here is the test plan. Please use standard equipment as supplied for a consistent test. Please record at which point in the plan you get an overload:-

1) Set up an SSD circuit with no lane changing and run one car. Do you get overloads?

2) Set up an SSD circuit with no lane changing and run two cars. Do you get overloads?

3) Set up an SSD circuit with one lane change and one crossover curve and run one car. Do you get overloads?

4) Set up an SSD circuit with one lane change and one crossover curve and run two cars. Do you get overloads?

5) Repeat test 3 but with the other lane change section (ie switch the lane change). Do you get overloads?

6) Repeat test 4 but with the other lane change section (ie switch the lane change). Do you get overloads?

7) Set up an SSD circuit with both lane changes in place and no crossover and run one car. Do you get overloads?

8) Set up an SSD circuit with both lane changes in place and run two cars. Do you get overloads? (This is the standard set up with a set)

Please report back so that we can see if a pattern emerges.

This is a good idea. Rather than just complaining about overloads or pretending they dont happen, you are attempting to find the solution.

it may also be an idea to put in how many power supplies your using, what cars (standard porches/tt etc) or chipped car, and a plan of your track
