Good Day Folks!

 

Can someone recommend a primer tutorial on controllers? I am having a hard time understanding the difference in controllers.  At the moment, I am running H.O. scale on Tomy track, with the controllers that came with my set.

 

Thank You in Advance,

 

-Steven

Please try this for a starter. Its aimed for slot-cars that are a bit bigger than H0, but the principles are the very same.

In general the brit's site is the most informative when it comes to tracks, power and controllers. I very good place to start.

Steen is very humble.  IMO if you want to race HO to 1/24 opens and eurosports then a Carsteen will do everything you need.  I bought a Carsteen and have happily used it on everything from hometrack HOs to my weekly 1/24 slots.  

 

Top notch quality, adjustabilty, and useabiity.  The only thing my Carsteen lacks is "coast" for neo HOs but I bet he could add that for you.

Thank you very much for the nice words.

 

A bit of history is that the very first test of a CarSteen-controller took place at Carsten Gronneman's H0-track in his basement. The controller was developed in order to help the guys that needed 3 or 4 old-fashioned resistor-controllers for the many types of cars they were running, and why not make the first test on a H0-track. Later cars with hotter motors came into focus.

 

Some of you might know Carsten G. as he has developed the LapMaster race-control system. 

 

Time flies.
