    Hi all,
    I am a keen slot car enthusiast and is currently running a Carrera track powered by two (one for each lane) regulated power supplies of 20 Amps each and fixed at 13,8v DC each.
    I managed to get another two of these power supplies of the same voltage but only rated at 7 Amps each.
    If possible I would also like to connect these to the track,therefore having a power supply of 20 Amps and 7 Amps for each of the two lanes.My idea is to have the maximum voltage and current possible,at my disposal for each lane and also to be able to regulate both current and voltage of the two power supplies powering each lane,incorporating digital readout meters giving me the readings for voltage and current.
    I am a newby when it comes to electronics and any advice/help /diagram in how to go about such a project will be greatly appreciated.
