again oops: can/will you give us a photo image, that works, of the DPDT toggle switches for the ARC Pro straight tracks placed before and after the ARC Pro powerbase that is supposed to negate the use of modifying the Digital lane changers?

Hello. Sorry for the confusion... Thought you would read what I was writing - easy to follow.. I asked if I could/should attach the "jumper cables" to the same piece of track (straight) as the "modifing tech of the Digital Curved lane change (c7007 - c 7008") for the ARC Pro so the ARC Pro will work as analogue and digital when we want at the flip of the switch on the side of the ARC Pro.. It would be more than great for we ' "Common" people = less educated than you in the Scalextric Digital ARC Pro "world" ', if you and other experts could give us more Information on these "Modifications" for the ARC Pro than you and other experts have been giving us.  NOT that I am giving you and others DISRESPECT for what you have given us but for many of us we have little education for what must be done to rectify the problems of Scalextric Company's design/engineering department and don't know what you are suggesting to rectify these problems. ....... I also need the photo image of the "Modifying" of the straight track for the electrical separation for the proper function of the ARC Pro in analogue/digital operation without modifying the ARC Pro itself. .. Images if the modification of the c7007 and c7008 did not show 2 wires , only one from positeve to positive and the other from negative it had only shown the positive.  I pray you understand my words here tonight and in the future. God bless, Thomas . . .sorry if you fee I am "long winded" here tonight = just frustrated!!!!!!!!!! In the military we had "FM" - field manuals, if someone need an operation or anythig setup or repaired/installed/downloaded, when we were in the "field", without any support and noway out, we could READ these instruction manuals and be able to SAVE LIVES to get the mission completed. Again God Bless. May the Great Lord love you and yours forever

Yes this will work. First on, ANYTHING of Scalextric Products, which they will Not tell you, Test it on your floor, kitchen, garage, etc. to see if it really works! You can look these things up online but it doesn't mean you will find Problems with the item. It is tough fitting layouts in our mind in what we want/design. Always changing and Testing is what makes the "sport/ hobby" interesting. Scalextric has some Good ideas and Products but they don't tell us that these won't work on the next Generation Power-Bases!

Oops forgot to ask ; Do I put the jumpers before or after the cut and solder isolation mod? Does it matter and why?  I have the piece of track I use for the "jumper cables" 2 feet after the ARC Pro and have no straight track in between that I can use for either mod. Can I use a piece of track before the ARC Pro for the "jumper cables" or cut and solder isolation mod or both?   Thanks again, Thomas

Good morning Andy. Thank you for your quick response. I want to add "jumper cables" on my digital/analogue track but also want to do the straight lane cut and solder for isolation of the electricity between tracks. My question is; can I use the same piece of track to do this?  The electrical outlet is the only one easily useable and its next to the back wall where I plug in the PRO Arc power-base. It's tough to disconnect the track, so I don't want to keep doing that so I won't wear out the connections of the track. Thank you. Cheers, Thomas

This looks like the mod needed for the curve lane changers in that you ned to isolate the tracks electrically. Thsi was probably Scalextric's idea that this would "make better" their curved lane changers. 

We don't always have the right answers in life so we keep trying. You want to sell?

Anyone have a pdf for the C8435 digi powerbase. I need some more Detailed Instructions. I built my set by buying solo items. Thanks

Having troubles! Can't make the curved lane change mod. 

ARC Pro short with pit lane need help!!

Can anyone send in photos of their mods on c7007 and c7008? I followed, as best as I could, the mods from Blagard and an other person here but can't get them to work.

I have no problems with the 4straight lane changers and the 4 pit lanes I have. I have tried 2 of Scalextric's "Suggested Pit Lane Layouts" and both shorted out! I have had great success with the other 2 Pit Lane Layouts though. 

Thank you for your help.

Good morning. Please explain this to me. .. 

ARC pro...

======= lane1

===X=== lane2

create a10mm dead zone in both rails at point X then ‘cross-wire‘ underneath using two jumper wires. Easy... Can I put this mod on the same piece of track as the "jumper cables"? Thanks. 

Do I put the jumpers before or after this mod?  What gauge wire should I use to make my own jumpers? The Scalextric jumpers are pretty thin and I know we should get as much power to the far track as we can. Also I can't get the 3 meter jumpers in the US or even in the UK.  

I read different things here, and other forums, that are part of what people have written about, but we only get a few sentences which leaves us to wonder what the full conversation was. Too many times we are left in the dark in understanding the full modification like when someone said we should set up a multimeter and read the OHMs - but didn't tell what value we should get. What is acceptable as a drop off?

Thanks for your spirit, diligence, hard work
