#13107 I am very happy with Smart Race, I would like to know if it is possible to add track call buttons around the track?

Track call buttons would be an extension of the control unit start button, when a car de-slots during a race you push the start button on the control unit and it cuts power to the track and caution shows on the screen. When you push the start button a second time the count down begins to re-start the race. I would like to know if it is possible to add extra buttons around the track that would do the same as the start button on the control unit.

Hey Donald,

yes, this would be possible and would be independent from the app. Basically these button would only trigger the START signal on the CU, and for SmartRace it doesn't matter whether this signal is triggered by the START button on the CU or any extra button soldered to it :-)

Hello Marc,

I was able to find the contacts on the circuit board of the CU and I soldered 2 wires to them.
It works great caution comes on and race is stopped until button is pushed again to restart.
Now I will add 3 more buttons around the track to activate track call. Thank You
