OK......here are some pictures of my first converted car. It was a slot.it and I used the 26732 Carrera digital chip.

I left all the lights wires because I will try in the future to add lights. The car is incredible fast and has a good traction with the magnets and tires as it came from the box.

I know that the work is far away of being a professional one, but I will improve it with practice.














Cheers
Daniel

OK GUYS........today I discover that in my neighbor town there is a hobby shop dedicated 100% to model trains. For that reazon the guy had LEDs. Now I am not in my hobby room, just watching TV, but wanted to let you know that he sell a 2.5V 3 mm LED with the corresponding resistor that will allow you to use any power supply between 10V to 16V.

So I already solders a resistor to the LED and tested it with a couple of wires hooked to the track.

The result was great. With the 132 or 124 PS from Carrera or the variable PS bright incredible well.

Remember that when you are using a 18V PS you really have 15.6 V in the track....perfect because the resistor is up to 16V.

Now I need to find small plugs so when I take out the body I can unplug the LEDs that will be glued to the body.

Any tip on those plugs?

I will provide precise info so you can buy those LEDs too if interested.

I forgot to say that the light wires going out of the digital chip have the same Volts as the track ....GREAT. so you have to connect the light wires with the resistor to the chip wires.

Cheers
Daniel

Hi All

Yesterday I spent some hours on the hobby and decided to see if I was able to install the lights from scratch in the Slot.it car that I converted to Carrera Digital last week (I posted the pictures 2 posting before this one).

I solder again all the wires in the chip because I didn't like what I did previously. After that I built the lights using the LED's and resistor as mentioned in the previous posting.

I have to improve a lot yet, but this was the first car I am converting to Carrera and I am learning a lot from my own mistakes doing this project.

Car run very fast !!!, lanes change without any problem and the lights are potent and they look great !!!.

To connect the wires, I used a female plug from an evolution chip. For future projects, I will use the plugs (males and female) that you can see in the last picture. The strip can be break in small pieces.

Lights are glued in place with a silicone glue to provide flexibility. In the pictures you can see the resistor too.

Any question, post it here o send me a PM. I am very happy with the result. The voltmeter to identify + and - wires was very useful for the project.

Daniel

Default My first Slot.it

Chipped the TicTac Porsche this week. After removing the interior there was plenty of room for the chip. Someday I will think about whether to cut up the interior to put part of it back in. Will probably work on installing lights before ever thinking about the interior.

Fast. Very fast.

Next I'll pull the mag out and see how it does.

Wow, Scott- this the collection looks great. Can you post pics of the chip and internals? I would love to see how you got the chip and wiring to fit on cars with small interiors.

How in the world did you chip the go kart?!! Guessing it's a F1 CHIP? Did you have to relocate the sensor?

Great work by the way

A single screw hold the driver and the seat in place.

Remove the driver and fit the F1 chip which sits at a slight angle – refit the driver and seat.

Note that the driver does not sit all the way down but as you can see from the above photo it doesn’t really matter.

In the past I haven’t been taking photos of the chipping process but will do with my future projects.

This was one of the smallest cars I chipped
Carrera Maserati MC12
I even fitted front headlight



No interior removal just a small section of the magnet slide.

I just finished my 2nd chip on a Scaley Aston in 45 mins.


The pictures are on my gallery. I would load them to the this thread, but I can't get them to copy over. One thing; both my rechipped cars work fine but they do not change lanes on the double cross track. All the Carrera cars work fine on the double cross. Any thoughts?

One possible reason for the problem with the double lane change could be the placement of the chip.

One of the Fly trucks I chipped change lanes on my track perfectly - I have a double, 2 single and pit.
I took the truck to one of the other guys track and it changed lane but wouldn’t enter the pit lane – Moved the chip forward and all works great on all 3 track I race at.

Cheers

Edit - had a closer look at you gallery and the chip doent seem to be center of the car.
Also looked at you track and the double lane change is very close to the corner.
