About this deal

To commence a race the start button is pressed, LED's flash and when they become constant that, together with the sound or a horn, is the signal for the race to start.

Once you are confident the cars are counting laps and you can set up a basic race, start exploring the various race formats and then the various features. Try one feature at a time and gradually dig deeper into the menus. It is a complex app – which is why it’s so realistic – but most people find it is easy to explore and to learn. To help that process along, do look out for the various How To posts that focus on race formats and ARC app features. CONTENTS: Power Base and mains transformer included. MegaSound hand throttles require 2 x Ever Ready LR6 batteries (not supplied). The batteries are required to provide the sound. They are not needed to operate the cars. ARC Pro has a handy feature that allows you to switch between digital mode and an analogue mode. This means you can race up to six digital cars in digital mode or two non-digital cars in analogue mode. No lane changing is possible in analogue mode. Digital cars will function in analogue mode, but they will feel rather odd when you drive them – no brakes, rapid acceleration and difficult to control. The best thing is to keep digital cars for digital and analogue for analogue. The C8515 digital plugs can be easily swapped between DPR cars.
