    Ford GT40

    I chipped a Ford GT40 with a F1 chip. Tight. Burned my fingers with the soldering iron and cut another finger with an exacto knife. I think it was worth it. It's quick, but doesn't handle like the Boxsters or the Scaley Ferrari.

        chipped audi tt

        I put a scalextric chip in a scalextirc audi tt (lots of room). Later installed a 35,000 rpm motor. Bad Idea! Smoked the chip. Since my LHS didn't know about this either he gave me a slot.it SP12 chip which I paired with the slot.it 25,000 RPM motor. This thing runs great. Over 100 laps so far and having a hard time keeping it on the track. Niether the slot.it website nor the slot.it packaging/papers say anything about which motors this chip will handle, so I am going to stick with their motors untill I hear other wise. The only mods to the chassis was removing the bracketry for the scalextric LED and the magnet holders. glued the chip/board flat to chassis after drilling new hole. You do lose a place for magnets between the motor and the front axle. The braking is better as well. I will probably convert all my cars. Advise for Scalextric, how about some guidelines on what you can and can't modify on a digital car or chips that will handle hotter motors.

          There is a Link to a chipping Database Index for multiple manufacturers cars located at yahoo's digital scale racing group

          the index includes well over 100 cars with 64 of these having photo installations. There is a selection from every manufacturer (including the Revell cobra).

            By the way the Scaley instructions are wrong re positioning of green and yellow wires, and orientation of the pressed metal tabs that clip into the guide are 180 degrees out.

              Clips are backwards

              I remove them and join the flexible wires from guide direct to the single strand wires.

              Green to left is correct though yellow to right or you will fry the chip, looking from above the car.

              Scalextric themselves no longer connect the single strand wire to the guide, they break way to easily.

              Leave the choke on the wires and insulate to protect from shorting.

              Will photo if anyone needs more info.

                hi Alan,
                You need to specify are you looking at car from front or rear of car as this can be taken two ways and will give opposite result. This is also a fault on the Scaley instructions, they descibe it the same way but fail to say wether they mean looking from the front or rear.
                If you connect yellow/green back to front it doesnt fry the chip, but instead the car can sometimes lose I.D during hard knocks or braids momentarily shorting.
                In actual fact looking from the top view from the rear if the car the yellow goes to the left, not right, or in simple terms the drivers side (USA-left hand drive in thi case).
                Like I said the chips can be wired anyway (green and yellow Im referring to) except one way will give I.D loses, the other way seldom will you get an I.D. loss.
                and also the choke isnt there to prevent shorts, its there in fact to stop emf interference. The Scaley chips have guide clips orientated the wrong way and need twisting 180 degrees to get wire to correct side.
                Bet you this will surprise a few people.
                Cheers.

                  Did not say choke is there to stop shorts.

                  You are absolutly correct it is there to stop emf interference as you mention.

                  I have replaced 100's of SSD Chips and the ones that failed had the yellow wire to the left of the guide looking from the top. Looking ( towards ) at the front of the car.

                  The left side of the guide looking from the top should have the green wire, the right side of the guide looking from the top the yellow. This is looking at the car looking towards the front of the car.

                  You are correct the clips are facing the wrong way and need to be twisted 180 degrees or best removed.

                  If used the hard wire (single strand) will fail very quickly the flexible guide wires are better suited to the rotation that a guide creates.

                  Hope this helps some.

                    would suggest using 1/1 terminology

                    usa drivers side and passenger side of guide
                    cause anyone can understand that

                    of course any country allowin drivin on da opposite side
                    is obviously wrong

                      OK if you are sitting in the car in the USA

                      The green wire is on the Drivers side of the car/guide or the left, the yellow wire would be on the right side of the car.

                      If you are sitting in the car in England the green wire is on the passenger side of the car/ guide or still the left.

                      Wow now I am really confused.

                        Yes its different from what you said before, but no big deal.
                        So to confirm in my opinion anyway, to reduce car I.D. losses by 99% the yellow wire goes on the USA drivers side. But the car will still run perfectly otherwise if you reverse them. I dont believe orientation of wires is responsible for blown chips, Ive blown about 6 chips since I got in SSD and all of them were with higher powered motors, eg 21500rpm.

                          blown chips

                          I am new to slot cars, and Although I have only chipped five new scaly cars I was told by an experienced slot car racer and hobby shop technician that Any motor over the std 18000rpm in the scaly cars will eventually blow the scaly chip. Use the slot it chip for cars > 18000rpms. However, I do not know what rpm will blow the slot it chip. I left the choke and fyrite in my cars and the cars run great. Nissian skyline, Jag cytosport, and Ford GT blue all with saloon chip. Somtimes you have to get creative in securing and finding a spot for the chip in order to fit the top back on. I had to swap two 20000 rpm motors for scaly sport in two porche 911 GTR3 until I get my slot it chips.

                          The only car I have had problems with is a factory installed chip in the new Ferrari F-1. The car runs a little jerky around the track and sometimes the lap sensor does not registor. any ideas before I open it up to see whats going on ?

                          Also has anyone chipped a scaly corvette yet ? and which chip will work best saloon or formula chip ?

                              check slotit site above

                              highly recommend slotit motors - fast enough for most everything
                              slotit chip should be good match for them

                              motors are listed by different manufacturers at different volts and amps
                              so rpms will vary

                              cars usually jerky
                              if track or braids dirty
                              braids need adjustin - keep mine usually flat and flared with digital

                              lap counter miscount
                              eye of counter or car dirty - only count one lane ?
                              goin correct direction thru counter
                              goin straight through counter as in not located immediately followin curve
                              guide not black
