  • ARC PRO missing laps

    I ran my Group C cars on my C7042 base for years and no problems.
    Now on my ARC PRO I often miss laps with these cars. Sadly, I've stopped running them entirely. I spoke with Marutzio (sic), he was aware of this, and he sent me some ferrite men to solder onto the motor using flux. It didn't help. Has anyone else experienced this, and succeeded in getting them to work?

    were is the power base located? are they not counting at race speed or even if you are going slow over the the power base what chip are you using also

      Depending on the model of car and the chip installed, there might be too far of a distance between the guide and the LED. The ARC Pro system links the two. It only watches for the IR *while* the guide is being detected. If it's too far outside of that sweet spot, it won't see them both at the same time long enough to count a lap.

      There is a solution, but that solution makes analog lap counting no longer work, because it tricks the base into thinking there's always a guide there, so it doesn't matter where the IR is in relation to the guide.

      I'm betting that's the issue.

        Would you please elaborate on this mod and where it is found ?
        Does it work with the arc pro Riko mod making a great digital powerbaye only ?

          You cut or remove the gray wire that comes from the flag sensors. And yes, it turns it into a digital only base. A switch could easily be installed, instead.
          Someone was working on a more complex mod that integrates into the analog/digital switch somehow, but I don't think that has been figured out and published yet.

            The base is located in the same place as C7042. ARC PRO will not count most laps at any speed.
            Primarily I am using slot.it original larger chips model 12 not the smaller 15 type.
            I just bought a factory SSD group C car that has yet to be tested.

            I also have issues with new chips (15b) and intermitant lap counting which I have not mentioned before this.

              Interesting.

                Thank you Mr Flippant.
                Will look around SF to find it.
