Re: KK-P1 almost ready for race.

The 2 'bar' magnets have there polarity apposed to the center one so they are repelling each other. That centers the steering but with play to go, so the steering magnet following the rail can still steer. Then there is the option to 'brute force' steer when the steering pivot arm's long throw hit o...

Re: Cork on MDF test track is getting closer.

A dumb question. You used the paper-side for track surface not the aluminum ? Yes hand routing with the needed precision is hard. I had to do a small fix on my straights and stopped after doing one. The rest need to wait for the CNC. But at least I almost have a closed circle to test. IMG_20210124_1...

A few pictures of the steps to add the JST. All pic dry mounted . ( https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000891576954.html ) For the 3pin servo some components conflict so you need to trim the plug. IMG_20210121_184453.jpg Motor 1 plug is a breeze. And you can see the one hole only for the PW conn. IMG_...

Jig routing Scalextric track for MagRacing.

Here are a few shots of the working jig. I decided to route all paths in all track pieces to make it easier to lay a track. I will put mag-rail in when I see where it's needed.
