  • Auto World Victory 400 4 Lane Wireless

    So excited about the new Auto World 4 Lane set coming out with wireless controllers! I just learned that the controllers are electronic, so I'm hoping that their sensitivity range will be wide enough to run T-jet through maybe brass weight inline? I have both routed and sectional track at home, but I have been looking into starting a slot car club at my son's school. This kit would be great for that in my opinion. I would not be sacrificing my higher priced "legit" controllers (OS3, etc), AND they are wireless. In addition, the track is equipped with sensor track pieces (my words, not official product description) that will work with a lap counting app to be released in the future! So cool. Is anyone else pumped about this?

    A little pumped. I bought the Super International set for my grandkids, swapped out the delicate open wheel cars for some good old Magna-Tractions and will give it to them for Christmas. I saw the wireless controllers in the new set and thought it would be one less thing for them to worry about when jumping around the layout, re-slotting cars, as even at my advanced age I can remember friends pulling wires loose in the heat of the moment! I just hope they work well.

      I'm hoping that for the sake of the people who purchase this set that the power supply included with it set is up to snuff. Then again, that's easily replaced if needed, even with an AFX 8-12-22 volt unit. I do like the vague imitations of classic NASCAR liveries from the past that are included with the XTraction cars. They're trying hard to please the general public, for sure. Auto World's total cover art ripoff of the original Aurora "Double Eight" set, (it does include cars that roughly match the artwork on the cover), caught my eye, as it was meant to do, I suppose. Gonna buy on of those, just to have it for nostalgia's sake.
      Hope everyone enjoys their purchases!

        Yes, those wireless controllers should prevent involuntary track movement!

          Regarding the variable power supply, I was a bit surprised that the dial wasn't graduated with voltage numbers. No big deal, as your eyes will tell you how much to dial up or down, but I think numbers would have been nice. Nothing a multimeter and a sharpie can handle!

            The AFX power supplies have three discrete steps, Beginner = 9.1 volts, Intermediate = 13.9 volts and Expert = 24.4 volts. I have not tested those power supplies myself, but I asked someone to see what they put out with cars running.
            Having a dial on the Auto World power supply might be better, probably it is regulated so it will hold a constant voltage as the load varies. If you need to change the voltage often you might invest in a digital panel meter, rather than fuss around with a volt meter.

              I posted load data for that power supply.

                I don't recall having seen that post, I have saved your diagrams. Do you mind if I include them in a future revision of my power supply article?

                  Of course. I would be honored to contribute to your excellent guides. I can send you the raw data if you'd like to replot it.

                    As far as I can tell from the cover art, AW is only including one power supply with the set. If it doesn't supply AT LEAST a paltry 2 amps, that's gonna make for some sluggish 4 lane racing, even with the pancake motor cars. As I mentioned earlier, that is a problem simply remedied. -- Ernie

                      Well, the standard Tri-Power Pack is only 1 amp, so who knows!

                        Yes, I am very interested in this set (except for the price).

                        I hope the wireless controllers and terminal track will be sold separately at some point.

                        I think the cars (AJ Foyt, Cal Y, Buddy Arrington, and early Dale E) look great. Some the sponsor alternative names are pretty funny. I do wonder why these cars are straight up copies like the other Nascar legends cars from the last few years?

                        I hope that track is usable. Lots of 15" curves in the set.

                          Although additional amps would be ideal, I think the 2 amp power supply should do fine. On startup I think the cars draw .2 - .4 amps, and while underway less than that. I think the power supply that BSRT put out for their G-Jets was only 2 amp, but I could be wrong on that.
