I recently chipped one of my Scalextric NASCARs and when I tried to run it the only response was a short hum of the motor and the rear wheels turned a fraction, then the car is dead and does not respond to the controller. This happens as soon as I set the car onto the track.
I should mention I did NOT remove the wires from the cars quide, but cut them and spliced them to the wires on the chip, but I do not think this should matter.
Has anyone experienced this and if so how did you correct it? Or do you know what may be causing this.
da rainbow, I have read the instructions that came with the conversion track kit and do not see anything about having to hit the Menu button after I have assigned the car a port. However I did notice it said to avoid putting the car to be programed on "the reader track - previous track piece to a lane changer or track were the finishing line is". When I tried this the car responded and now runs as it should.
So your suggestion was helpful in that I did get the car running. Thanks for the suggestion. But I am still curious about why my directions do not mention anything about hitting the Menu button to complete the programing of a new car. What Ninco digital kit did you have that told you to do this?
