arc pro usage warnings were issued at all normal digital slot sites starting end of 2017

there are several solutions for the problems found pinned at slot forum scaly digital

personally use the permanent reverse the lead wires for 1 lane to make it digital only base and it works great with all track pieces

fyi

originally found cables on clearance at rat shack for phone use

neeeded them because digital track was massive back then with pb6sh

they worked great and so contacted 132 to start selling them

Alan bought them out all and that is how scaly got into it

have fixed quite a few of the digital porsche boxster and audi tt

the lead wires always break at the guide

cut off the ferry there and just solder wires back on

will run great again

Why not use a digital toy ?

If you really believe an analog toy/track will not short out in water then have at it.

Personally not going to even consider doing it.

Andy, you must like those 9 volt batteries.

Personally never use them unless checking if motor works and never when oiling.

The set is not faulty.

The assembly/alignment is most likely causing a common conductivity problem, which still happens here occasionally. 

Get out a ruler and measure if track is properly alligned along edges and distance apart.

Here place a small dab of vasoline on each rail connector when assembling , while others favor jumper wires.

Also personally use a flat track only, no over and unders.

Clean the rails occasionally.

Track is never placed on carpet and not walked over or bent.

Even a track set on a table, with the excitement of racing, can become out of alignment.
