Buy at least 4 quarters and 8 shorts to balance out designs. However 4 x 8 is not large so keep it simple. Keep track covered when not using and flat for better conductity.  ( The shorts will really help your track building ability and the quarters will allow you to use all your space available .Use a yard stick for allignment and take notes . Really it's all just math. )

What is seriously missing from this discussion is how many lane changers were acceptable to use track with 1and 2' powerpacks.

Switched over to 7 inch Amazon fire so this is short.  Track is covered due to construction.  So hope this is not already discussed.  While trying out tablet came across magic at Amazon but cannot test it for awhile.  Hope that is good news.

It would be far easier to do the riko arc pro mod pinned at top of sf scaly digital forum, to make a true digital powerbase out of the arc pro.

Then use a pair of pitlanes to go from 2 to 4 lanes.

Did this long ago with the powerbase pro and found most people really wanted only 3 racing lanes,

which was a lot less expensive when adding track.

Yes switching leads of only 1 lane is the solution.

It is the same as the riko 's digital solution for the arc pro as shown in top of slotforum scaly digital forum.

On the arc pro you finally get the lane design choices of the advanced but not the use of analog unless you want opposite drections like the one that you currently have problem with on the advanced.

But for digital only users of the arc pro it is godsent.

However when it is done to the advanced , you may fine the analog direction choice is opposite to the button selection, as in right goes left and left goes right BUT both lanes finally go in same direction and can be easily reversed.

Now consider the advanced to be the best scaly has produced, but sadly lacking wireless , the only true endearing feature of the arc.

 

As for why solution was not posted on slot forum, was unable to get back on there.

Did post it on slot car illustrated and asked several members of sf to post it but obviously they did not.

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
