Hi,

This is my first post and I am very sorry if this is in the wrong area or has been addressed previously.

I must admit that while I've played around with Scalextric all my life, I've now just entered into the world of digital and must say it is fantastic.

I've undertaken a little research and regard myself as being very lucky to have acquired one of the original Scalextric Lane Change Challenge sets in nearly new condition at a very cheap price.

It also came complete with a super C7030 V1.5 six car powerbase.

On looking around the internet, one of the things that really appeals to me is the option to run a pacer car. While the newer C7042 has the option to do this out of the box, I have read with interest that the C7030 can be upgraded to do it as well.

To do so, and from my reading and understanding, I believe I need to do the following:

1) Upgrade the powerbase so the new software can be installed
2) Install an S-H power board (optional)
3) Acquire an 'Aux to USB' cable to connect the powerbase to my computer
4) Obtain the new software
5) Install the software

I hope this covers all the steps required to perform the upgrade.

If so, I would be very grateful for help with the following:

• As these powerbases are a little uncommon, is it still possible for it to be upgraded?
• How much will it cost to upgrade the powerbase so it can accept the enhanced software?
• As I am a casual racer I don't think I'll need an S-H power board, but how much will is cost to install this board?
• Where can I obtain the software from and again how much does this cost?
• Finally, where can I get this upgrade carried out?

Many thanks in advance
Paul

Hi,

Many thanks for your quick replies. I'll PM Riko Rocket and RichG as suggested.

Oh, to answer your question Michael, I live in Urmston, Manchester (near the Trafford Centre).

All the very best
Paul
