When weather changes there comes a box with a 5 second countdown and no car can drive, race is stopped. After this countdown race goes on.
How can I delete this mode?

Best would be if there is a change of weather the speed would fade in new mode

Hi Guido,

unfortunately there is an issue with newer firmwares of Carrers Control Unit, which doesn't allow changing speed/brake/fuel values while the car is still moving, which is why SmartRace forces all cars to stand still and only then applies the new values due to changing weather. There is no way around that. Maybe Carrera will revert this (like it was in earlier firmware versions) so we can get rid of this articificial pause...

But last year with same unit there hasn‘t been this problem! Why now???

The problems were there - it may very well be that you didn't run into them (out of pure luck). Most other users with the affected firmwares experienced that values were no longer applied correctly during weather changes, which is why this change was necessary. If you don't want the artificial stop, you could try buying an older Control Unit from ebay (with firmware < 5337). Other than that, there is no way around it :-(

D.h. Ich hatte letztes Jahr nur Glück? Da würde bei einem Wtterwxhsel von jetzt auf gleich die Geschwindigkeit angehoben oder abgesenkt. Teilweise auch nicht gut, da die Beschleunigung teilweise so abrupt kam, dass man es nicht kontrollieren konnte. Schade, dass es nicht eine Möglichkeit des fading gibt so dass die Geschwindigkeit langsam schneller oder langsamer wird. Der 5 s Stopp ist auf jeden Fall total blöd.

Ja, das ist unglücklich, sehe ich auch so. Es ist wie bei vielen anderen Dingen auch: Carrera scheint manchmal ohne Sinn und Verstand an der Firmware herumzuschrauben... :-(
