With the new cardboard pacing pieces in the sets, unless you take photos before

you unpack it is hard to fit all the bits back in the box and get it so they do not all slide around.

With the old styrene foam packing it was easy. So a packing diagram included in each set would be great.

Hi JohnHG,

 

Sorry to hear you are having problems with the ARC app when using Andriod  7.0.

 

To date, I have only tried Apple iOS. In my case I have had 100% success with all variants of iphone and ipad that I had tried using the ARC APP. Well... except for cases were I have tried to use the pacer car function which has been a bit of a disappointment.. but the rest of the ARC app functionality has been truely amazing!

 

I am very interested in trying the Android app, too, and wonder what device you are using with Android 7.0 which is giving the problems?

Thanks for the reply. 

The mobile phone was my sons a Huawei model. I have a Highsense U972

which runs Android 5., also did not work. The old Samsung Galaxy Trend Neo works 100%. Used it a lot over the weekend and only stopped once when

ARC picked up a short on the track. I even manage to get my wife to race me

I used to race 1/24 scale club racing. Impressed with the ARC Air system

The Pace Car works well with Android and great feature.

I notice that some Scalextric cars ie Aston Martin Racing have a sideways mounted motor.

My Porsche RSR has a normal inline motor.

How can you tell when purchasing which are sidewonders ?

I have an ARC Air set and tried my newest mobile phones  Blutooth 5.1 and Android 7.0 but

none worked with the power base. My son had an old Samsung Neo  Android 4.4 Kitkat and Bluetooth

4.0 got this to work fine using the ARC Legacy version .
