so ive been readin about upgrading options etc, and having a sport set already with approx 100 cars, i've decided maybe the time is comin that I upgrade to digital with the 6 car pb. so my question is, whats the cheaper option, buying the scalex platinum set so i can the controllers, 6 cars, LC and crossovers with the 6car pb, or ive noticed jadlamracing do a custom set, that includes a crossover, 2 controllers, 2 cars and the 6 car pb. the platinum set i can get for approx £400 but i dont really need anymore track bar the crossovers, and the jadlamracing set is £200 but dont really get alot in regards to the cars etc, or is there another set that would suit me?

thanks

the only thing with the jadlam set is, there's only 1 powerpack and im sure i read, to run 6 cars, you need 2 powerpacks. approx 70 of the cars i have are all still in boxed un-used condition, but i do have a few duplicates of some cars so wouldnt mind in sticking some digital chips in those ones. i didnt really think the track would sell if im honest about it, but having looked on fleabay, maybe thats an option. he APB is defintly the route i wanna go down, as i'll prob add in a pit lane game (maybe pit-pro depending on funds) and a decent RMS on the laptop. just wasnt sure if there was any other cheaper options of the jadlam set but guess thats hard pushed. i can get the APB for about £110 but dont think there's a powerpack included with that, and most the powerpacks ive seen are about £35 :S

Rakete - Yeah im thinkin i mite be able to get all the parts i need for less than the platinum set, but at the same time, as bigbird says, if i can sell all the track i get in the set, then i'd imagine there wouldnt be to much difference by the time i buy the APB, the power supply, some controllers, LC's and the 6 cars is a bonus

hmm i'm goin to keep an eye and see how much the track goes for then make my mind up, mite even pop into a local shop and see wot i can "haggle" a APB for lol

still not sure what i was doin. i was buyin a load of cars in a well known model shop and the guy said if i wanted, he was doing the platinum set for £250 for the following weekend only, but i was only home for 5 days and live in another country, so it was the posting it home that would have stung me. mite give em an e-mail and see tho.

rakete, yeah, its handy having loads of track as a "just incase" but it ends up lying all around and takin over the house, this put onto the fact i have about 2 big boxes full of classic track that was a mix between mine and my dads so wouldnt wanna part with that either...so i dunno, money situation first tho lol
