    Rick, do you have controller adaptors? I have a Slot.it controller with the three prong plug.

    Would I be able to race a Plafit chassis hardbody car in 1/24th?

      Hi Rick,
      Ricky will have to answer the question regarding adapter. Regarding the plafit does it have a modern GT body? If it does you can run it but you wouldn't be eligible for a trophy. It would be an exhibition car. For 1/24 the only legal chassis are Scaleauto and Carrera. ~Ron

        I have a C6 Corvette body on it at the moment. I'll run a few practice laps to see how it performs. I can run the Carrera. I'm curious to see how the RMS motor performs on a big track. The 1/32 Carreras are good to go.

          Sounds like a good plan. See my comments on Carrera guides on IHSR. ~Ron

            I have an adapter for my hammer controller with a round 3 prong plug. Not sure if its what you need.

              Hi Ricky,
              I played with the pclapcounter and still need training to run races. I ran a simulated 5 minute races with 6 drivers. It seemed to work ok except between heats it doesn't do a countdown. Only on the first heat. Is this normal? And at the end of the race I couldn't find a lap total that was in order. It had drivers with different laps jumbled for the total.
              Also when I tried to simulate a race with 12 drivers it put them all in at once on the heat generator sheets.
              Any chance you can be there on the 18th? ~Ron

                I converted my Slot.it controller to 3 clip set-up, thanks. We'll need a computer tech for the day.

                  It depends on the weather. I have to be in Mt. Airy NC. Friday between 7 and 8pm and back there on Sunday about 9am. We need about 20 racers just to cover the gas.

                    If you have a manual for the program, I can figure out how to make it work.

                      No manual

                      It is pc lap counter. There is no manual. Matt or Les at main line hobbies in king of prushia mall in pa is good with the program. That is where I bought it.

                        If you google PClapcounter there is a english manual that can be downloaded. There are also some example picture but they are for lap not time heats. See you Saturday. ~Ron

                          Times

                          When setting it up, there is a spot that allows you to set timed hace or number of laps.

                            Hi Ricky,
                            I know where the time/lap area is on the race control. My issue is with segments. I think you just put in total time and let the heat generator figure out the segment time. My other problem was with the number of racers in a heat. I had 12 racers per heat. Somewhere I need to change the lanes to 6. I'll see if I can do better tomorrow as I'm off work. I did find a manual on line but it is for an early version and outdated. ~Ron

                              OK, guys. I have a copy of the manual printed out and I will bring it Saturday. Practice will be on from 10 till 11:45. The power has to be off at that time. We will start the first heat as soon as possible after 12. How's that?
