    conversion from digital to analog w/brakes

    I would like to convert my Carrera digital 143 track to analog, so I can enjoy the scratch building and proxy racing more. I came up with the following plan:
    (1) buy a Carrera Go! base and controllers on ebay and rewire the base for brakes as per this post: http://www.slotcarillustrated.com/po...ad.php?t=91354; and
    (2) buy some inexpensive variable Ohm controllers with brakes like the Aurora AFX Adjustable Controller ($17.99) and connect it to the Go! controller plugs as per this diagram I found in another post:

    PARMA ---> Carrera Controller wire
    White ------> Black
    Red --------> Red
    Black -------> Blue

    Hopefully the wires in the Aurora are the same as the Parmas. I would also save a few $ for more advanced track and controllers in the future.

    Any advice? Thanks, G

    You'll probably want to do something with the current limiting polyfuse as well.

    Looks like I bought an older Go! Unit- no polyfuse.

    Thanks Cdub- that is useful information even if it is a bit hard for me to understand. Sounds like higher powered motors may have some trouble with the polyfuse.

    Do you think Kyosho Dslot or the G9330 motors will have a problem (G9330 operate 1/2 volt up to 6VDC)? They seem to work fine with the unmodified Go! base and track.

    I am a bit reluctant to mess with the fuse or hand-wire the track as it is in the kids room so wouldn't want a fire or electrocution.
