    Hadn't thought about that. I didn't want to butcher the car too much since I only plan to use if a couple times. But I will try removing the ferrite beads tonight.

    If you remove the internal jumper on the pit lane entry switch that sends the low phase signal to the pit lane, and put a 'normal' jumper into the pit lane, the Carson car will probably run properly. Without that internal jumper, the pit lane voltage signal will be exactly the same as the rest of the track. On a CU system, you don't need that jumper unless you're using this pit for a pace car.
    Hey Bruce, I'm using the CU, no BB, with a newer Pit lane track, the one that came with the Pit Lane adapter track included. If I remove the jumper you're referring to will the pit lane features still work?

    It's an older CU, from 2012 or 2013 that has not received any firmware updates. Could that be a factor?

    When you say won't work in the pit lane- do you mean it won't run at all when in the pit lane?

    Or do you mean it won't refuel? And if you mean it won't refuel- why are you still running a Black Box system instead of a CU with the advanced pit lane?
