Is there a way for the cars to stop after a race is complete?

Can you adjust cars while race has started? 

Thanks!

After the race take your finger off the trigger Laughing. But seriously if you mean to physically stop the cars I don't know. I know you can select how the race finishes e.g. "all to finsh" or some other setting. So your car may be in way of others a lap behind and needs to either keep going ot be lifted from the track.

 

I think you need to calibrate the cars on lane one, one at a time before you start the race. What adjustment did you mean?

I haven't tested this in ages but I think if you select "all finish" the cars keep going until they finish all the laps for the race or if it is a timed race until they cross the finish line.

I think this can be toggled off and I think when the "winner" crosses the line the cars stop.

Again, trying over speculating might be key..

I switched to ARC Pro for my charity "Slot Care Kidz" where i go to Childrens Hospitals

and set up race track and let the kids forget about there troubles for a bit. I needed Digital so i can 

control the speed of the cars. I just did a event with Arc Pro and it worked great , kids of all motor skills

pick it quick and the wirelss is great for kids in wheelchairs/beds.

My question is there a way to STOP the cars after a race, even after a timed/laps race the cars keep on going.

If i ABORT they still move or go back to 100% flying the cars every where. I could CALIBRATE them so they

go very slow and then throw the YELLOW to slow them. But what i want is to stop them.

You can calibrate the speed in ARC AIR as well. I do it all the time.

Top speed can also be controlled with the "speed limiting" controllers on most analog sets.

In the past I used a plug-in dimmer to adjust the speed as well...

Unless a software "stop" becomes available your only real option is to pull the power plug on the pawerbase.

hate to ask but how to you define stop ?

 

have soft stopped toys with a pillow or rolled towel or even packing material at high accident area and will work for straight drag strips

but if you want a more permanent fix

the best way is unsolder powerbase lead wires to lanes and insert on/off switch or plug for each lane

then resolder back to lanes or just run jumpers to next section of track

that way base and tablet remain powered up

Apologies in advance if I’ve missed the point... but I thought all cars could be ‘calibrated’ to zero power? i.e. with ‘yellow flag‘ enabled all cars would stop when the screen is tapped... I realise this would only work if all other functions in the app that trigger minimum speed are switched off - but it would still be a great game for kids... I don’t have a system set up this evening so can’t fully trial this myself...
