Does ARC ONE Powerbase work with a 4 lane track setup?

Posted by Matthew Suplee on 14th Jun 2017


Is it possible to add my own cars (other brands) in the list off cars, so I can select them when creating a race? For fuel usage and tire wear can I add my own track instead of selecting a standard scalextric track?

As this is an analog system will it function with ALL my old scalextric cars and other analog cars that I hace

Does the ARC ONE have a Ghost car facility

Posted by Chris Sothers on 10th Feb 2016


What is the length of this power base? It looks longer than the stock analogue base so I don't know if a matching straight is necessary.

Scalextric ARC ONE Powerbase

Brings some realism to a race with the ARC base and synced to the app. Unfortunately system with not sync with non-Scalextric cars. Also the app has room for improvement with the cars database and track information is based on sets only.

Scalextric Says...


Non-Scalextric cars can be used with the ARC system. Whilst they won't be pre-loaded into the app, it is possible to add them as custom cars. Any analogue car should work with the ARC ONE powerbase as the light sensors will detect almost any guide blade.
