Why not use a digital toy ?

If you really believe an analog toy/track will not short out in water then have at it.

Personally not going to even consider doing it.

Andy, you must like those 9 volt batteries.

Personally never use them unless checking if motor works and never when oiling.

The set is not faulty.

The assembly/alignment is most likely causing a common conductivity problem, which still happens here occasionally. 

Get out a ruler and measure if track is properly alligned along edges and distance apart.

Here place a small dab of vasoline on each rail connector when assembling , while others favor jumper wires.

Also personally use a flat track only, no over and unders.

Clean the rails occasionally.

Track is never placed on carpet and not walked over or bent.

Even a track set on a table, with the excitement of racing, can become out of alignment.

You guessed it C.

Small 7 meter test track with r2 and r1s, that can reach across , using a now terrible racer, me.

Days of 30 meter , 6 dual lane changers and racing pit lanes, on 3+ digital lanes here are long gone.

Yes would be nice to have a porsche to race against ford, ferrari, and chaparral.

Add a cobra daytona and a chappy 2d and may even consider repenting.

Nah , will never happen.

Installed a digital chip in the challenger.

Ran with rubberbanded digital controller.

Had a magnet under both lanes.

It was simple, time consuming, and expensive.

 

Ran a digital with rubberbanded digital controller yesterday.

It beat me first 2 times.

Adjusted the band to slow it down.

Finally won, by half a meter.

Simpler, quicker, and almost free.
