SC8435 Analog (ue) mode and non-digital cars

TeamLotus

4 posts

Is it possible to run non-digital chipped cars on the ARCPro (set in analog mode) track using the wireless controllers? If not, is it possible to do so via some other method? Or do I need to connect one of the older power sets with wired controllers? 

I understand that some pieces, like the lane charger and pit stop cannot be used with the analog cars.

You can run any analog car from any brand on ARC PRO in analog mode as long it has a black guide blade.

The ARC PRO acts like an ARC AIR in this case.

If you have digital lane changers (straight or pit etnries) in your layout you have to set the flippers to go straight. Some use tape to hold them in place as they do wander around.

If you have the discontinued curved lane changers they must be modified for analog use.

Thank You.  That was easy and it worked. Appreciate the quick response. I wish that the manuals were better written. The ”quick start” implies that there’s a full manual somewhere. I couldn’t find one.

There is no verbose manual I am aware of and the quick guide covers pretty much everything from the current catalog.

The fact that other cars work in analog mode is a selling point but not one Scalextric is will to shout from the rooftops about...
