Scootcar50

Nice and clean chip installation, I can see there is plenty of space in that car. The white stuff under the chip is hot glue or something you added to provide level, support and attachment to the chip ?

Thanks for posting the pictures !!!

Daniel

Default Inside Pics

Now, I do not do a pretty inside. My cars are admittedly messy.

Three examples here:

1. Fly Ferrari 512 - using the braids to power the lights because I am using the chip without a separate light connection. You can see the resistor in the picture. Also, I usually cut the interior down to the racer's torso and use black construction paper for the interior.


2. Racer Toyota GT2000 - using the 26732 chip and no need to touch the interior (actually for a Racer I would never touch the interior).


3. Slot.it Ferrari (very small car) - same as #1 but this is an example of a small car.


These are my earlier chips - and then I added lights after the fact. Now that I look at the pictures myself, I might go back and clean up the interiors. My most recent chips are much cleaner. I think I have it down to a science now.

Oh, and since I run magless - the silver stuff in the car is lead weights.

Here is a tricky little sucker for you Daniel

This is my Carrera Ford Thunderbird



Joe COOL is driving








As you can see no holes and no nothing done to the underside





Front mounted motor and a whole lot of interior would have to be cut out

But no

I placed the chip over the front axels just to see if it would work – and it did – changes lanes every time.




Cheers

Nice job there Scoot. Ya know in thinking about it, I can't see any reason why moving the LED as far forward as possible would have any negative effects vs. moving it back in the chassis. Fortunately you had room in front with that body. Something to think about with some of these front motored cars. Way to think out of the box.

or DANIEL,

This is really cool if I am seeing what I think I am...
Is there no clear line of sight between the chip's led and the LC sensor?
Is the signal going directly through the plastic chassis,or is it seeing the LC sensor through the wheelwell or the guide opening?
This will definitly make chipping certain cars a lot easier and cleaner.D1/24 chips may even work in some 1/32 cars.

Great discovery SCOOT

Hi Randy

This is what I did, based on ScootCar50 pictures:

The IR LED see the track trough the guide opening.


The IR LED is located very high, inside the chassis to allow the guide to have free movement. It is NOT touching the guide. It is all glued to the chassis from his bottom and top only on the sections that are beside the motor (see picture of the car posting). In that way, all the front section of the chip that is over the guide is in the air, over the guide highest point.
On this picture you have a feeling of it. You can see the tip of the IR LED because the camera is in an angle, if not you will not see it at all. It is all inside the car.


The chassis of this car is big, but only has free space in the front or all the way back. I was waiting to install the chip with a remote IR LED. When I saw ScootCar50 pictures, I decided to give it a try. The chip fitted in the front and the open space around the guide is enough for the IR LED signal, because the car is always straight over the track sensors.

IT IS WORKING GREAT...........THANKS FOR THE TIP SCOOTCAR50 !!!

Daniel

Great idea Scoot and nice work on both yours and on Daniel's car also. I'll have to try this, I always try to steer clear of front motor cars.

I went to the Greenberg toy show in Northern NJ today. I wasn't going to buy anything and then I saw this NSR Porsche and now I'm broke The interior in this NSR is very shallow so no interior modifications are required. Chipping this car is a little tricky with the guide drop arm, but everything worked out great. This is a very fast car and I'll have to get used to the handling, but I have all weekend to do that. I got a great deal on the car and had a lot of fun at the show. Life is good.

Nice Porsche. Since it's an anglewinder, it looks like it's dying to be run without magnets. Good job! Really like the Thunderbird!

Nice Car AL.

If you continue chipping NSR, you will have to extend the track again.

I thought about it and my latest is not a NSR, I can't afford any more track. So I tried a Racer Ferrari 250 LM Kit with a 29,000 rpm motor
These kits are very well done and come with all Slot it high performance parts. The paint finish is incredible and assembly is easy even though there aren't any instruction included. The Racer kit comes with a flat interior insert, so chipping this one was a breeze. This is a nice car to chip and also to build. I highly recommend these, but they are expensive.
Does anyone know where I can get decals?
Al

CHIPPING A KYOSHO DSLOT43 WITH A CARRERA D132 CHIP


Hi Guys

Here is how I chipped my DSlot43 with a F1 Carrera D132 chip.

For those that are not following the 1/43 scale, this is a brand new brand that will be launched in USA this month (April 2012). I was lucky to be able to have this small car in my hands in advance. In EU and Japan has already been launched and 1/43 fans are buying it overseas. I traded this car to a guy in Canada

It changes lanes and drives smooth and fast.

IR LED Removed and Switch removed too. You can see that the switch had 3 legs. The central leg has a "bridge" connecting it with the right leg. In this way will be for ever Digital. Sorry is a little out of focus. You can see a white drawing, like a door, where the switch was placed.



F1 chip placed "upside down" (the capacitor looking the track) and the IR LED was located at the side of the motor cover with hot glue.




Lateral view where you can see the "capacitor" beside the rear tire. He has a perfect fit there.


On this picture the IR LED can be seen like a white dot. The IR LED is NOT going OUT. It is inside and over the chassis floor.






Tested it for 20 laps and all was OK, changing lanes and counting laps without any problem.

On the next page (#48) posting 714 I added lights to this car

Enjoy Guys,

Daniel
