We were fed up with our magless racing classes sliding just a little too much and missing sensors. Believe us - full speed pit entry when you are not expecting it is irritating for you and extremely annoying for the racer you just punted out of the pits in mid-refuelling. Add to that missed lane changes as racers exit bends with a little too much juice and the rewards of driving without magnets can be outweighed by the lane change disadvantages.
Even with magnets fitted, some of our better tuned Super Resistant cars, with standard 18k motors on treated tyres, were sliding and missing sensors.
So we felt we needed to do something and the idea of the SureChange guide was born. It’s simple really - you need your LED to stay over the centre of the slot in order to guarantee the sensors being able to read it. Putting the LED some way behind the guide means that a car that isn’t straight - isn’t showing its LED to the sensor. Scalextric lane changers stay where they were last changed to - so a sliding car has a 50/50 chance whether it will go straight or change lanes.
Our SureChange guide places the LED in the one place it is always over the centre of the slot - directly in front of the guide blade. So as long as you keep the car in the slot you will never miss a sensor.
The SureChange RACING guide is designed to fit Slot.it, NSR and Pioneer cars.
There are two nodules that act as spacers for the deeper Pioneer deck. For Slot.it and NSR remove the nodules carefully with a sharp craft knife.
The deck on this guide is very thin to allow you hot headed racers to keep your finely tuned racer as low to the ground as the conventional guides do. The eyelets are vertical and route the guide wires where they were designed to go.
