Default Left Hand Lead-In Connection Problem

So I just got my first track set up tonight! It was very exciting. Everything works fairly well, except for a few little things. The only real problem is the left hand lead-in track that leads into the pit. The lead in has power up too the split. Once it hits the split, the straight has no power, but the split that heads into the pit has power. I found a forum that discussed the wire being loose at the end. I checked all of the connections by pulling out the little plastic and copper connections pieces. All of the copper wiring seems to be properly connecting with the copper piece. I don't know what else could be causing the problem besides the wiring being bad. If I have one side connected and the other not, I can lift up the end not connected and it somehow establishes a connection. The track has to be bent a bit. This is why I think the only thing that could be the problem is the middle of the wire running through the track. Thoughts? Thanks

It is most likely a broken connection somewhere in the section of track that you describe. It is probably fixable but why bother if it appears that your track is new and thus you have the two year warranty.

Call SCX for service. Here is the info.
