    How often would you clean the track or braids with INOX? I know it's subjective, to many different elements, but generally?

      Once. After that, I only ever put a drop on each braid when a car seems stuttery.
      The only time I'll apply to the whole track is if I have cleaned it off using some other chemical degreaser, such as alcohol or acetone, which I rarely do.
      Putting on too much can cause problems as well. If you suspect you've put too much on, then wipe all the rails with a paper towel, and wipe off all the car's braids as well. There should never be any liquid inox anywhere. It will leave a functional coating behind unless/until you use a degreaser.

        Understood! How often or when do you change out the braids. What am I looking for visually?

          I rarely change braids due to wear and tear. It takes thousands of laps to wear braid out unless it's been changed for really thin racing braid. Scalextric braid will get changed sometimes just because it's so loose and will practically fall apart, but most other braids last for a good long time.
          You're looking for things like the braid unweaving and looking more like scraggly hair than a braid. Some braid can simply be trimmed if there's still a good amount that is still tightly braided. If the braid is tangled up, then been abused by children or newbies, such as by pulling the car backward over a track join, or if it was poorly set up in the first place.
          If it's just dirty, then cleaning with lighter fluid, acetone, or inox will usually get it going again.

              Hey frogman. I had a similar issue. I took the track apart cleaned the entire mechanism. You can get a lot of debris build up. When I put it back together I barely tightened the screw that holds the the bottom track cover. The screw specifically closest to the mechanism. I have not had a problem since.
              I had a problem with my BRM transam leaving the gate open at the pit entrance. The brm guides are thinner and sometimes slide by the tab leaving the gate open. I glued a thin piece of styrene to the guide blade to make it thicker. Worked perfectly. Gate staying open is mechanical. Sometimes a worn guide blade will cause not to close.

                I understand about opening the back to se what's up, it was recommended previously. I was trying anything else before opening up the back,

                  Ok. I added a jumper to the beginning of the SLG, still does not respond correctly. I remove the SLC and then removed the back. What am I looking for, everything looks good?

                    just fiddle with it a bit. see it anything stops or slows the movement, catching it anywhere. Look for flashing on injection molded plastic parts, bends in metal that should not be there, cracks in parts or broken parts, mushrooming on plastic parts that have worn too much... anything that doesn't look absolutely perfect. Again, open up a good one and compare/contrast if necessary. Even look at the IR sensor to make sure nothing is covering the sensor, or if the sensor appears damaged or scratched.

                    In the end, it could just be a bad component on the board that you'll never be able to detect without the right tools and expertise. It might just need to be replaced.

                      It looks shiny and new, nothing looks wrong/bad. I will put it back together and place it in a DLC position that works. If still slow/no correct action, I'm sure its a board issue. Thank you for you feedback!

                          Tried a different location, switched out a double lane changer. Still will not close every time. Replaced SLC with 2 straights and moved on! Now to find lighting for under the raised track.
