Just bought a BMW 125 (C3735) and the back end is all over the place - really flips out on normal 8206 curves ...... any suggestions?

 

Should add that its newish track and my other cars don't react the same.

After selecting race mode i.e Practise, Grand Prix etc you need to select ....

'Driver Setup' then select a car - select 'Car Handling' - then select 'Maximum Power' - adjust the setting down from 100% - you will need to experiment as to what works for your family. Each car needs setting individually.

The 'Throttle Curve' adjusts the response when pulling the controller trigger.

Hi - the hairpin curves need to be connected to the Side Swipe Stright track. They cant be used with normal track because the lanes do not line up.

The extention pack that scalextric sell come complete with 2 hairpin curves and 2 side swipe straights .... you can buy the straights separately if you only have the curves.

Hope that helps

Thanks for that bud ill give that a try tomorrow. Where do people get there normal track designs from? 

When I started I was kindly pointed to this software -

http://www.uracer.org/english/download/index.html

Its free to use but cannot save your design if using more than 25 track pieces.

Well worth buying for only €15

the exit has a sensor to make it possible to reverse the hand of the pits by swapping flippers

Thats interesting so doesn't matter which you buy as you can switch them from one hand to the other easily.

Good info - Thanks

Ah ok - so one end has a moving flipper and the other is fixed - just curios, but why does the exit track have a sensor ? - obviously the entrance needs a sensor to trigger the routing but not the exit .......... is it a hang over from the pit lane game ?

If you didn't know if a pit lane was left hand or right hand - how would you identify it ?

When you look at pictures they appear visually the same, but there must be a difference !

Not sure what happened to my first post/picture but it was basically the same but with 1/2 straight less either side.

That fitted into 6' 6" but meant the right hand inner curve needed to be raised as it overlapped the outer track.

The first track required bridging on the left side cross over section and raining on the right end on the track.

 

If you squeeze in 7ft then this track means the right side does not need raising.

The digital lane changes can be replaced with normal straights if you don't use/have them ( lane change track is equal to 1 and 1/2 normal straights.

I have left some track cut out so you can see the cross over section.

Ah ok - as they were priced in dollars I thought they were being shipped from USA.

 

Thanks again
