Scalextric "Advanced" DIGITAL / ANALOG 6 Car Power Base - Allows you to race UP TO 6 normal digital cars with lane changing or 2 analog cars with lane changing inhibited. High tech tower type display is used for setting up analog / digital racing mode & to display race results showing both total laps and lap times (independently). Requires P9303 (Old #C7033) power supply(s) (MAX of 2) and C7002 digital hand controllers (MAX of 6) (THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED !). For use of advanced system features or running more than 3 cars, a 2nd power supply (and additional controllers) are required (see special package deals available).
Features : Skill Level option allows you to adjust the maximum power levels to individual cars so that 'novice versus expert' races can be run more fairly. Controllers can be calibrated to equalize performance for each car. In analog race mode cars can be programmed to run in either direction around the track (Digital runs in only one direction because of the lane changing sensors). Standard DIGITAL controllers are used even when running cars in analog mode (no change of controllers is required to go back and forth). Multiple gaming modes are included with either timed endurance racing or total lap count formats. Ghost car (PACER) function allows running up to 6 digital cars automatically with optional random lane changing and optional lap counting on each ghost car. Setting the individual digital car ID is easy via a simple one-button action (hit the brake button on the controller when in program mode). Newer 15 volt high performance power supplies are used (not included) for faster car performance (than earlier 12 volt systems). An 'open-source' output connection enables the enthusiast to connect the power base to a computer for additional functionality (details available in the future).
