This Scalextric track power booster cable is used to electrically
connect together sections of the track in a layout. It is well known
that in a medium to large track layout the joints between the individual
track pieces can offer high electrical resistance causing a car
to slow or hesitate at the far end of the Scalextric track layout.
By connecting the track pieces with this Scalextric track power
booster cable the connection losses can be eliminated.
To further reduce the electrical connection losses Scalextric Car
Restorations recommends that this wire is soldered directly to the
underside of the track conductors, see picture above. Three or four
track pieces should be permanently connected together and placed
at regular intervals around the track layout.
This flexible twin cable having a figure-of-8 shape comprises 13
strands of 0.2mm diameter copper for each wire. A marker on one
of the wires ensures the correct polarity. This track booster cable
is supplied in 5 metre lengths.
