Daniel Tyler: Hi, nice job. I was wondering if you might be kind enough to tell me the secret. I realize that once you get X amount a views that people watch it for the same reason I did, because it is there. But I have a friend who mounted a mini cam to the bottom of his RC plane and buzzed his neighborhood. Super funny, great editing and production, great music over dub, exciting take off and landing. And the last I checked I think he had almost 200 views. How did you get almost one hundred thousand views! Thanks in advance.
Karaoke Vic: About 30% of the views come from the suggested videos section of YT, another 20% come from people searching for the video, and about 50% are from mobile devices. The video has been up for about 2 years collecting views...
Daniel Tyler: How did you get eighty thousand views?
Karaoke Vic: I'm not sure if you're just asking if you need one or whether yours might be bad. You do need one to run the track. If you have a power pack you'll need to test it with a multimeter to see if it works. The other problem with these tracks is that the connections often get corroded. There are quite a lot of suggestions on how to fix this in the comments on my original track video.
TeamDadandSon: I can't get mine to work to I need the power pack?
Karaoke Vic: This is the Tyco 440X2 NiteGlow Championship set with the addition of the loop. They are hard to find now, but well worth it for the fun! Thanks!
Eric Hooker: What model track is that or where could I get a model like that. That's awesome
RyanXcasting: you can also polish the rails with a piece of notebook paper until they shine. anywhere they are not shiny they are not making good contact. do not polish with grit sandpaper because it will eat the rails to the point where they are too low to make contact with the brushes on your cars. also put rubbing alcohol on the tires and do burnouts before racing them to burn off the grimy stuff from the tires. or just buy new tires.
Karaoke Vic: Also, you could try cleaning the rails on the top of the track pieces that are troublesome with some really fine emery paper. I've found these are more often the problem than the connectors. Generally, if you have intermittent dead spots all over the track, the connectors are working and the top is oxidized. If you have one bad connection on the end of a piece of track, the car will normally go around pretty good until it gets to that piece..
Karaoke Vic: Don't know your skill level, but when you say the connectors look good, realize that electrical connections are different than just having a good appearance. If there is any tarnish or oxidation on the contacts they still might look "good" and not have a good electrical connection. The best way to check the connections is with a meter, but I know not everyone owns one. Try cleaning the contacts with a rubber eraser and see if they get shiny. If they do, then they are probably dirty.
Brian Skonesey: I just found my old 1979 Aurora AFX Track in my crawlspace in good shape still in the box. I put it together but I am experiencing alot of dead track. The connectors all look good, but on some trax one lane works and the other lane is dead, and then some pieces of track are dead even though all the connectors look fine. Does anyone know of any troubleshooting I can do to fix this problem???
Jboone31190: I loved building these as a kid. Hated taking them apart
Brother J: I love the track, I'm a old school racer from the mid 80s, what do you guys know about the throwback G+ racing cars?
Stuart Edwards: its good to see you have so much fun with these racing sets,m8.what was the name of this track,with the spiral in it?
James Roberson: Na me im bored and its cold out so im house bound!
James Roberson: I have the same track with a AFX indy car model 8792,i bought for 30 bucks.I bought the track at a flea market for 15 bucks im happy :)
Nitro192: Check out the vid Carrera Digital 132, 111 meter track..now THATS a track..this is nothing
Daniel Tyler: Nice layout. I love cork screws. Also, I PROMISE, if you get a Slot Dragon Racing System for less than a hun, you will not leave the house for a week! Every run has the potential for a track record. I would say that track is about 2.85 with 5 running magnet missiles. don;t ever stop.
