I know that there is lots of wireless options for digital. But I am investigating options for an 8 lane analog track

I am aware that Carrera has 2 options, the new one seem to be a better choice linky , but not sure if this is going to work with the DS boxes

Ninco are due to release wireless controllers for analog , but from the limited information I have found it looks like I am not going to be able to connect it to the stop go boxes

Kyosho are going to release the KSD-01 WIRELESS controller which looks, again based on the limited information I have found online, like this is going to be the best bet. All be it that for 8 of them it will get very expensive.

Can any of the options for digital (specifically the slot.it controller) be converted to work with analog?

Thanks

If You put a SlotIt O201a in a small box and threath it as a car You get signal to the track instead of to the motor!

slot.it will have an option for wireless analog racing soon I believe. Scorpius also has an option. I think a lot of the manufacturers announced 2.4ghz wireless controllers at the toy fair - might be a case of waiting and seeing

I was exploring using a Wii controller as an analog slot controller. The Wii controller uses bluetooth to communicate, the protocol is available online and there are tools for talking to a Wii controller on your PC, all you need is a bluetooth dongle which are cheap enough from Maplin.

You would need an electronics module that receives the bluetooth signal and converts it into an analog voltage for the track. Haven't done anymore on it, just shelved on project list, which is piled high.

Except that Wii controllers would be useless for slot car control.

Then you have to move youre entire wrist rather than judt one finger which is tiring and no where near the same control.

Its a novelty, as you say, you could just use your wrist and the level of control could be adjustable, just a bit of fun.
