Product Description

Scalextric C7042 Digital 6 Car Powerbase 1:32 Scale Track Accessory

The new standards for slot car racing The Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase can be used to race up to six cars on a Scalextric Digital layout at the same time, or be used on a standard Scalextric two-lane layout, and boasts a wealth of features that take slot car racing further than ever before. The clear user interface of the display unit shows each car’s ID and the race information of the various modes possible through the Powerbase, such as timed endurance and total lap format racing. The ghost cars (PACER) function allows the user to set one to six cars to run automatically, with switchable lane changing and lap counting on the individual cars.

The Powerbase can assist with races between players of differing experience by capping the maximum speeds on individual cars. An ‘open-source’ output connection even enables the enthusiast to connect the six car power base to a computer for additional functionality using third party software, such as the SSDC. The Powerbase is not just for digital layouts: all the great features are available for racing two cars only on standard two-lane analogue circuits with the analogue power mode. The Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase is the definitive accessory for Scalextric enthusiasts.

  • Clear user interface with two levels of features to suit both novice and experienced users
  • Set each car’s ID at the press of a button
  • Multiple gaming modes such as practice, grand prix, endurance and pursuit
  • ‘Open-source’ output connection for additional functionality when used with a PC (such as with the third party software ‘SSDC’)
  • The Powerbase can deliver 15v for faster car performance with the C7024 15v supply (sold separately)

  • Compatibility Analogue power mode available for standard two-lane Scalextric circuits with all the same features as the digital power mode
    Allows hand throttles to be calibrated to equalise controller performance
    The Skill Level option allows you to adjust the maximum power levels to individual cars so that ‘novice versus expert’ races can be run more fairly.

    Features for expert Scalextric racers Measuring down to 1/1000th second makes for true millisecond timing to full resolution.
    Dynamic and button braking can be enabled and disabled, and a non-linear throttle map can be selected.
    Last car time data means the time for the final car to complete a given race is transmitted on the Aux port before sending the race end signal.
    The throttle brake button can be redefined to activate a track call where when pressed every car can be stopped or run at half speed.

    Why choose Scalextric Digital? Scalextric Digital allows you to race more than two cars at the same time and perform amazing, realistic overtaking and braking manoeuvres on your opponents. By pressing an extra button on the digital hand throttle you can make your car switch lanes on special sections of track, allowing you to overtake or strategically block your opponents’ cars at key moments in the race. Each set comes with digital cars and more can be bought separately, and you can even convert analogue slots cars you own to digital.

    Most standard cars are DPR (Digital Plug Ready) and can be converted to digital in under a minute just by slotting in a digital plug (also available separately). Digital layouts are fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces. Scalextric Digital offers the most advanced and exciting experience yet for racers, whether you’re new to Scalextric or seeking to build on your analogue sets and cars.
