These can't be slot cars, there's no slot. More like R/C cars on a different kind of track.

Danger is my middle name, that's why I race slot cars.
Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about.

and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it cost
nothing to be a PATRIOT." - Mark Twain, 1904

Anki Drive is an opportunity to make Slot Car Racing BETTER!
Digital Slot Racing has weaknesses in lane change locations and limited power across lanes. Anki technology can allow fully powered cars to change lanes at will. The technology can provide IR control of throttle, pin-lift/drop and AI assisted lane change steering). You can go as fast as you like, swap lanes wherever you want and drive through the pits without interference.
Scenario: Tri-oval with 3-4 lanes running in Kunga lines. A standard controller has an added stick you can tap to change lanes left or right. When you tap he stick, the car lifts the pin and steers to the next lane where it drops the pin again. The lane change steering is stabilized by the Al. You can change lanes anywhere on the straightaway you want and steer onto the two lanes in the pits.
It may not be as fast dedicated lanes but it is faster and more 'realistic' that Digital Racing.

I raced the trains on the tabletop before I got my first slot car track. I have no interest in using a telephone to do anything other than to talk.
