This project provides an simple F1 motor racing style 5 light race start sequence with a fixed or random delay that you can use on a real race track, kart circuit or even your slot-car circuit. Operation is simple; when the start button is pressed all the LED clusters are off. They then illuminate sequentially until all five LED clusters are on.
Negative Reaction Times: In the event of a red-light, the display shows how early the car left the line in thousandths of a second. Push button Starts: The Ready Lights always function, allowing the cars to stage before resetting the previous race. Pushing the RESET button will start the race. The Ready Lights will stay on for .4 seconds, .4.
Stay safe and healthy. Please wash your hands and practise social distancing. Check out our resources for adapting to these times.
If your car won’t start but the lights and radio work fine, it could be one of several problems, possibly including a dead battery.

Push button Starts: The Ready Lights always function on this new version, allowing for the cars to stage before resetting the system from the previous race. Pushing the RESET button after the car(s) have staged will trigger the start sequence. The Ready Lights will light for a Random Variable Delay time of .8 seconds to 1.3 seconds. The yellow light are on for .4 seconds, the exact format of.

Car suddenly flips out of the slot in a turn with both the front and rear departing nearly together and car may roll over. This is usually symptomatic of a car with too high a CG. It can be quite a violent departure when a high CG car has been magnet tuned without consideration being given to lowering the CG first. Your choices in this case are simple, either add more magnet to raise this.
