  • New Chip

    Any comments on the Slottenik 2022 (for Carrera) chip ? It indicates light and ghost function. It also indicates "small" but doesn't appear to be much smaller than a Carrera 26732 and is considerably more expensive.

    The pic is a little deceiving as you're comparing a 1/24 chip to a 1/32 chip. I know people have used it and like it but you're right, the cost difference is a lot.

      Might someone post a pic next to a Carrera 26732 and/or the Carson CR500707130 and/or the oXigen C type?

        Thanks - I have not done 124 as yet and did not know what I was looking at. Still, I hope someone will post a pic of the new 2022 shown with one or more of the chips listed above.

          Did you look in the Carrera forum vs the digital forum? There are a few pics there under the cars converted and a chip thread.

            I was taking pics today and got a couple for you. If you extend the IR diode on a new style 26732 chip you can fit them into just about anything they'll fit in somewhere. I cut off the Carrera diode and use a new one, not worth trying to save the old one and risk overheating and destroying the board trying to save a ten cent diode, you can get them on eBay. Soldering the lead wires to the chip and new diode takes less than a second and doesn't heat up the chip or diode much, I use a pencil tip on my soldering iron to do them, takes about five minutes .
