It's for switching to analog track or for a digital track

if it is on the bottom of the EVO  cars it will reverse direction.

 

Digital cars need a digital chip.

Correct. EVO and older Carrera cars have a reverse switch for operating in the opposite direction.

You dont need to set it up just get the power tap track, or use your power supply

 

The great thing about Carrera track is you can use the existing power tap track and use an external power supply and your controller.

 

If you go to professor motor you can search for wiring and it will show how to hook it up and if you use an electronic controller be sure it is positive polarity.
