It's been a long time since I played with slot cars.I’m a slot car nut and I would like to build a digital controller. Instead of designing a new controller I wonder if anybody on here has done it.
It's been a long time since I played with slot cars.
The controllers I remember were just a big variable resistor. If they are still the same it seems like you could do a PWM controller (if that's what you mean by digital). I'm not sure there is an advantage, but it could be done.
Where do you live that there is a slot car track? I want to move there!
Holy cow, I guess I am getting old.There was a nice sized one near me. It was open for years. I never got around to going. It finally closed a few years ago.
I think the new slot cars are now steerable to hence the advanced controls.
The track is in Concord, NC
I'm looking for something like this
