SCX the Digital System (LANE SWITCHING) provides Real overtaking by changing from/to any other lane, racing with up to six cars on a two-lane track, lap counting, constant race information, race leader display and more. The SCX Digital System allows you to decide the best racing strategy, control fuel consumption and plan the number of pit stops. Latest SCX digital system advancement is the new digital chronometer. With the SCX Digital System there is no need for messy tangling accessory wires as all accessories plug directly into the track section, virtually anywhere on the track.

This new SCX technology allows you to race on your circuit with up to 6 cars at the same time on a two-lane track, overtake your opponents and receive continuous information during the race. Discover your race strategies: push your opponent’s car off the track, use the corners to delay other cars, overtake and choose your lane to avoid cars that have crashed, and much more.

DIGITAL RACING TRACK SYSTEM
The new track for the analogue system allows users to make their tracks digital easily; this opens up a wide range of possibilities so they can enjoy more realistic car races. All these new features make the digital system much more interactive because it allows you to:
•Compete with up to 6 cars at the same time on a two-lane track. •pass your opponents from any lane with the lane change button.
•Plan race strategies by changing lane, taking corners on the inside and stopping opponents from overtaking by going in front of them, making it difficult for them to advance.
COMPATIBILITY TRACKS
The new circuits can be combined with the whole range of SCX 1/32 tracks and circuits on the market thanks to the compatibility tracks designed for this. These compatibility tracks are included in all the analogue sets: C1, C2 and C3.
EASY-TO-ASSEMBLE TRACKS
The new track system allows users to assemble circuits more easily thanks to its new joints; they allow you to save time when building the circuits so you can start playing quickly.
TRACKS WITH MORE FEATURES
The new track system, while maintaining the high quality common to any SCX track, also includes the following improvements:
•Side plastic protectors for the rails, thus improving the movement and direction of the car blades. •Wider and more stable tracks, allowing you to drive the car in a more precise, effective way.
•Technical material that offers users greater flexibility and strength when it comes to assembling a circuit.
• Surface of maximum adherence and uniformity, improving quality.

SCX SLOT CAR DRIVING TIPS
Here you have some advice and tips on how to improve your driving technique..

Training with drivers
• Pursuit tests: Try to drive flat out and withstand the pressure of the driver that is chasing you, or apply this pressure if you are catching up with another car.
• Help from your friends: From certain points of the track, they can tell you how to improve your technique.
Individual training
• Practise the optimum moment to accelerate or slow down on particular stretches or bends. Do several laps and memorise the references.
•Take references: You will be shown the exact place where you should take action. Mark these points faintly on the track with chalk. The references of extremes will change if you change car.
Starts
These can be a key factor in winning a SCX race.
• They are essential in the speed trials.
Watch out that you are not forced off the track at the first bend, after the start or at the chicane.
• In the endurance trials, since they last longer, the starts are not so important. Maintain a good average speed and take advantage of the errors, tiredness or lack of concentration of your rivals.
Accelerating
Gentle acceleration is usually the key
With the exception of the starts and time trials, when the hand throttle can be pressed to the maximum, you should accelerate gradually, especially in the rally sections, or if your tyres no longer offer their usual grip.
Taking the bends
The speed that you can reach on a bend depends on the speed at which you go into it. This must be sufficient for you to be able to follow the line of the bend, while accelerating gently and avoiding going off. It is all about joining the two points of the bend (entrance and exit) as quickly as possible, without going off or skidding.
On the fast bends, avoid brusque movements on the hand throttle and long skids, because you will lose precious fractions of a second. On the slow bends you must brake at the last moment and you can accelerate more sharply, because the distance covered is shorter.
Overtakings
This is one of the most neglected techniques, and yet a good overtaking manoeuvre can decide the race. The ideal place to overtake is on a straight, but very often this is not possible. Try it when your car is inside the bend. Otherwise, the rival car may skid and force you off the track. By braking at the last moment, you will take the bend at a faster speed than the other car.
Race safety
• Keep a safe distance from the car in front at all times.
• Do not deliberately slow down when there is another car close behind.
• When changing lanes, make sure there is no other car coming which you might hit and come off the track.
• Before putting a car back on the track after it has come off, always let the other cars on the lane go past, to avoid getting in their way them and breaking their rhythm (do not become an "obstruction").
Setting up the Starting Grid
There are two possible ways of deciding the positions on the starting grid:
• Before a race, competitors have a series of heats to decide their position on the starting grid:
    
• With 3 cars: each competitor runs a two-lap race against each of the others. In the event of a draw (i.e. all three win one heat), there should be three more heats. The competitor who wins the most heats takes pole position.
• With 4 cars: hold 2 semi-finals. The winner of each of these races against the other for pole position. The losers of the two semi-finals compete for third and fourth position in a further 2-lap race.
• With 5 cars: as this is an odd number, use the "everyone against everyone" system, as in 3-car races. The winner takes pole position.
• With 6 cars: hold 3 semi-finals of two cars each, to give three firsts and three seconds. Each of these groups uses the system for 3-car races to decide their positions. The first group takes the 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions, and the second group 4th, 5th and 6th.
• Time Trial: under this system each competitor runs 2 laps and their positions on the starting grid depend on their times.
A chronometer is needed for this.
