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.

believe calabration is same for both (original and new app) by sliding line

since seldom use app, believe it is to attempt to equalize the cars speed

mine are either set full on or full off for all controller ports since that  is what you are actually adjusting

First , you have not done the mod.

You have connected the arc app.

 

Will the cars race without the app (tablet off) ?

you will find the scale speed is irrelavent

what really matters is laps and then time for those doing comparisons

Are you using modified arc one and air ?

Both only use 1 power pack unless you shut off power to 1 lane and add 2nd power base for the other lane (also shutting off power to other lane), which would make it difficult to use the app.

Arc one is underpowered so thats why 1 car reacts when one 1 comes off track.

Arc air, believe read on this site, uses same power source as for 3 cars on arc pro.

you can also use choo choo oil since they have be around longer with same needs as toy cars

 

just never glue your tires on because someday you or someone else will need to replace them

 

 there are really many solutions for the same problem so opinions on line are what works for different people.

have seen solutions that are announced and repeated by many as gospel completely reversed in 6 monthes.

slots are fun so try enjoying it

Use 4 r1s with 4 shorts in the middle to equal 4 rad2s , which really slows down racers at end of track.

So you could use that with 8 r3s to make a 4 lane 180.
