I think your system is fantastic and I dont even have yet.
I have 100 metres of Polistil analogue track.
What do I need to buy from you to setup with Scorpious Wireless.
I understand you have an Analog unit now. Is it better to convert my track to digital first
or use the analogue option you have?
Personaly Id grab a few Carrera Pro-X (now redundant, hence cheap) lane changers and modify them to suit 89mm gauge and add Scorpius lane changer electronics. You also need car decoders, one per car, controllers, a USB dongle and the Scorpius race management program. You can easily wire your track to 2 lane or 4 lane) analogue as well. You can use your existing analogue controllers this way (for analogue) and even use the Scorpius controller for analogue if you plan to use our upcoming 50A wireless module.

Pretty sure John wants both options.

Local company here in Sydney. Costs will vary where you are. Only way to find out is to draw up a rough plan and ask around.
Heres a short video to explain the best way to run a hybrid track.
Note 2 lanes would allow me to have 2 analogue driver stations should I decide.
Just thinking out loud here. That would be around $300 Canadian for one lane,somewhere around the same in the States. So $900 for a three lane track. The controller can be used to change over to a full digital track and work, at a later date, yes?
Can one wireless controller be used on an analog track while the other lanes are controlled by a regular controller allowing a lane by lane change over? That could spread out the money part if that is an issue.
At 50 amps it would be pretty hard to blow one. Since the track I raced 1/24 scale wing cars runs 30 amp power packs it could even be used there. Marshaling would be a snap as sometimes they are short of people.
The controller could be also used for HO tracks.
For those with mobility problems this would be a God sent.
Especially when self marshaling in practice mode or at home running by ones' self.
Fascinating, Rick. All the bases seem to be covered.
I volunteer to be a Betta tester and can try out the analog system on HO, 1/43, 1/32 and 1/24 scale tracks
Are you taking pre-orders?
No pre orders on the WAM until it's tested however yes you can run the WAM on one lane and a traditional analog controller on the others lane(s). Yup we thought about it carefully in fact I've just completed a hybrid analog/digital track which has the ability to run traditional controllers and wireless controllers it even race one lane analog and the other lane using a chipped car ( no lane changing of course). Theres a video on YouTube somewhere I'll have to dig up showing how all 3 combos can be used very easily.
I know that the only way for the analog car to work with the wireless controller is via a WAM, but does that mean you had another WAM hooked up to the other lane, or was your analog station really connected to both lanes? I ask, because the first two times you put the car on the inside lane, but in the end you put it on the outside lane.
