Could you use the 3rd lane for one car and have lane 1 or 2 for 2 cars and the other for just one car as well?
Being able to run two cars per lane seemed like a neat idea, but the more I think about it, the more I don’t think it will work for me. Each car has to be “attached” to a controller, meaning it won’t run on a different controller. Its because of the “diode power control” scheme that ac2car uses. Thats really more of an irritation than anything else, but who wants to be irritated when just flinging slot cars around for fun?Could you use the 3rd lane for one car and have lane 1 or 2 for 2 cars and the other for just one car as well?
Yep, that's an old trick and certainly not limited to slot cars. I’ve used that method on everything from car interior pieces to motorcycle side panels.consider Testors 3502 liquid glue.
you make a paste that we call "goop"
shave or break down some extra track pieces very small and put into a bottle of the Testors 3502 glue.
there are reports that MEK can be used as well.
it will dissolve the plastic and you can adjust the consistency to your liking.
quite a few of us have been repairing old Aurora bodies with this technique and done right you cannot even tell there is a repair.
perhaps this is a bit tedious, but the plastic will return to it's former strength and will be chemically bonded to the track.
maybe search around HT slot car threads for more specifics.
there are a couple wizards that have been "gooping" for decades.
apparently Mike Vitale (sp) is credited with pioneering this venture.
Possibly. I have to do a little reading on some electrical stuff (old brain looses bits of info now and then) and go through the racing center a bit more to get it all sorted.Sorry to hear that! Sounds like you may already have a plan developing to make them better though.
