Hi,

I have converted hundreds of older cars and have found that when this happens it is always as a result of a partial chip failure/burnout due to overloading. I always check that a motor is 'free running' and does not need to be run for any time before it gets up to speed. Open can motors in older cars are most prone to this. Suggest you take it on the chin and put in a new chip. 

Hope this helps.

When will we see pictures for the anniversary cars other than the Bentley? Won't be placing pre-orders until I have seen what they look like....budget could be spent elsewhere by the time they are released...

I would recommend the c7042 and run it with SSDC. You'll need to update the firmware on the powerbase and get a cable to connect power base to computer. Instructions are clear on the SSDC website. I think you'll have amazing fun once set up.

I have same problem. Apparently, they're back in December. Some sellers on a well known pure plat website have them in stock.

I would like to see a test track article covering digital and how to get the best out of it. Which race management systems are available, things to consider when designing a layout, how to use pits, what's comimg for digital in the future. I would also like unbiased views of the different race management systems with pros and cons. Advice on converting cars would be great too.

4 years old, dad wakes me up and takes me to the living room where there is an oval and 2 GP cars. AMAZING! He had hand built a transformer (cash was tight) and the hand controllers stunk. 42 years later now with permanent digital track in man cave!
