If you google "Scalextric Track codes" you should get a list of most of the pieces. e.g. http://www.janestrains.co.uk/ScalextricTrackCodes.html

Feel free to suggest that they always ürint the C number of the track/car/accesspory on the product to Customer Servcies at the right.

I think that would help in a lot of ways...

ON slotracer.online there is a racer called RikoRocket who has made the correct cables for others I think.

Also you will likely have to use a virtual machine or at the very least enable all the legacy options to get this to work.

I think it was out around 2004.

You could also just get one of the new ARC systems that works with tablets or Windows 10 if you use the "Magic" app (search the App store).

Please see the forum rules about disucssing non-Hornby brands.

Having said that, Cloverleaf Racing is not too far away...

Then it sounds like a return I am afraid.

The lights do more than just show the powerbase is on (as indicated in the quick start guide) so I think you will need a replacement as I mentioned before...

Are you sure you used the power supply that comes with the powerbase and is it the correct one for your country?

A power pack for a 120 volt system (US/Canada) will not work in a 220 volt country (most of the rest of the world) and vice versa.

In any case, it sounds like your powerbase is fried. Try to get a refund from where you bought it  or contact Customer Services to the right.

I am currently not able to check but essentially there should be 4:

Right-hand curve, change from out to in

Right-hand curve, change from in to out

Left-hand curve, change from out to in

Left-hand curve, change from in to out

Not sure of the numbers..

Hej Pelle71,

Well you can easily extend any straight with avialble pieces.

Many sets come with the "super long straight" that is a standard straight plus en "elevated" piece in length, nearly 50 cm I think...

As far as the radii are concerned I see the request from time to time.

I personally feel the R4 curves are almost straight so an R5 or an R6 is even less of a curve but hey... blondes and brunettes...
