    No worries. The former HO guy picked up the magless 1/32 racing VERY quickly. For his very first ever race, he did exceptionally well and he as been getting better and better ever since. In all likelihood, he had raced gravity/t-jet HO cars in his racing days, but I haven't asked him.

    One of the other guys picked up a new DTM car as well. I think I grid has changed a bit since the first race.

    Wow, these ones look great. Not a big fan of the orange as well but really dig the purple/black combo though.

    "chainsaw and string trimmer..."

    By owning these Stihl tools, you qualify as a factory driver!

    I have to apologize as I hadn't had much experience with other brands of cars.
    I happen to LOVE the DTM cars... They are Fantastic I HAVE 6 of the Carrera Digitals
    Obviously, I like them the BEST of the D132 cars. or evolution...
    So please don't think I dislike these cars.....
    ...... The LENGTH is longer than some of the other cars... that helps a bunch...

    I'm not able to discuss (in any meaningful way) what "might" be done as you might imagine. Personally I cannot imagine it would be done because the mold cost would be outrageous because of all the fiddly-bits on DTM cars.

    Any chance of DTMs in 124?

    Dave:

    Just wondering if there's any chance of this? They have been so popular in 132.

    Thanks, Steve.

    I am choosing to take kochj's statement that we are probably running with magnets as a compliment.


    On the topic of these new Carrera DTMs... I am surprised by how robust they are considering the high level of detail.

    Back on topic, these latest cars are already in use in the DRAWW Carrera DTM series. One by a new joining member, and the other by a member who decided his car was not meeting his needs.

    Sorry, kochj, those cars were magless. Maybe the drivers are better than you think, if you think it looks like their cars are running with traction magnets.

    These guys are most likely running full magnets as well.. That doesn't help....
    Also.... If you have a circuit with sharp corners, the guys that can't drive for ****, will always
    wipe out when on them.. lol...

    Aka, crash and dash. It's an idea we've been unable to try, since all of our tracks have too little room to move around. We've tried using a yellow flag that just slows cars down so that the clock doesn't stop and drivers can re-slot cars in their vicinity, but that didn't work out very well. We might have to try that again.

    In case anyone else feels that this is dragging this thread too far off topic, there's already a good thread to talk about marshaling options when there are a limited number of racers here. Feel free to comment on that thread, a different one, or start a new one.

    Once again, thanks go to Dave Kennedy and Carrera of America for the generous SWAG he sent to DRAWW in support of our Carrera DTM series.

    With my set-up we use wireless controllers. Each person is responsible for putting their own car back on the track and the others keep racing. Pretty simple really and it keeps the racing action in tact. We figure it is your fault you de-slotted so the time lost in re-slotting the car is your penalty. If you knock off another car with your poor driving or lane change, the offended driver gets to resume first.

    Probably not many, if any. Crash and burn rules seem to be rare among traditional slot racing clubs, as well, at least based on what I read about clubs online.

    We did crash and burn for a while. We also did 3 crashes and then out. Then we used repairable damage points (repair in the pit lane). We've also done active marshaling, and we've done track calls for every crash (as seen above). We'll probably continue trying new things and having a good time.

    There are as many ways to run digital slot car races as there are traditional ones. As we're not limited to one lane during a race, there's no need to run lane rotation, so we tend to enjoy longer races with racing simulation features. We also prefer races where people are on the track throughout the race, rather than standing and watching just because they happened to cook the corner or time a lane change poorly. That would be like running crash and burn rules for a 4 hour endurance race.

    In the end, whatever set of rules we use on a particular day or for a particular series, it's still the best drivers that end up winning.
