May be wrong , but believe you need to have a software program running to get advanced to change  ghost lanes or loaded in via special cable.

No it does it 'out of the box' - just need to set it in the menu

I don't know if things have changed but re. 'ghost/pacer' cars - the Advanced 6 car power base has the advantage that these cars can be setup to either randomly or always change lane at the lane changer track(s) whereas the ARC Pro pacer cars always stay in the same lane.

Therefore the Advanced 6 car power base gives a more interesting and challenging race.

Have to say the ARC Pro is far simper to setup as the Advanced 6 car power base is a bit fiddly going in and out of menus and with its limited display capability.

I am not sure how the 'Magic' app handles pace cars using the ARC Pro.

@Andy P.

HI There,

The part number should be P9400W. You may need to drop the W or replace the P with a C.

Apart from the jack that goes into the powerbase it is a pretty standard part.

 

Many thanks

I have an ARC One track without a power supply.

Can someone help me with the part number for the powerpack I need ?

ok ..... I have a factory digital Audi TT car (Not DPR with a plug)  and it does not have the little orange & black bit inside the car just before the guide.

I have 2 wires coming from the chip and 2 bits of wire on the blade.

So my question is - what does the little orange bit do and can i just solder the wires together without it in place (I assume not).

Also can that bit be bought or is it not worth the price/effort - i cannot see anything on fleabay.

 

Thanks

Thanks Woodcote,

I was hoping more along the lines of UK road cars of the time which were used for racing - so more Ford (UK), BL, Vauxhall etc. rather than American cars.

More like cars my dad told me about Laughing (believe that and you will believe anything)

Not looking too hopeful but I will have a look at Pendle site.

Thanks again

Hi all,

I have recently purchased a MK1 Escort and a MK1 Cortina - both DPR cars so I can easily convert them to digital.

I would like to add to these with other cars of that era (60's/70's) but not sure what is/was available.

I have seen an MGB advertised but thats it.

Can anyone advise me ?

Thanks

To answer your last question .....

Yes - you can use as many of the straight lane change tracks (C7036) as you want.
