That *might* be possible, but I've never seen it done. Maybe Zarko has?
I'd sooner just wire the lights to the braids. That's what I do on almost all my cars that have lights, so that they're on all the time. Hopefully Scalextric changes to doing that as well, since it's a real hassle to move wires from the motor to the braids, since the lengths are all wrong for that way.

I've never it done it personally or heard of anyone using slot.it light kit with SSD chip. I guess Maurizio should be able to answer this one?

Thank you for your input.

I figured something out late last nigth, by trial and error.


I took a look on the Light chip forom SlotIt, and thought, there is not a lot of components
on that! perhaps I dont need that so I connected the LEDs directly to the connector to the
light board.

There are 3 pins, seen from the drive direction: 1. is very bright when the car is running on
my true tire (a strait with a PSU directly to the rails)
2. is less bright
3. is ground

So I soldered the front lights to the 1. and the 3.
and the 4 rear LEDs to 2. and 3.

It works, Not sure if I should have a resistor in front of the LEDs though?
