Hey guys, here is the armature that I was talking about. I am wondering if this is a laGanke item or Aurora? I have spoken to a few collectors that have seen them, but no firm answer as to who made it.
Ok, I will try to explain what I used and did hopefully it will make sense.. As to parts I used four 3v laser pointers cut them down to the smallest size possible about 1.5", wired the lasers all in series running 3v. Also used the "Bondo photo eyes" that came with the Slot Dragon (now SD2) My main objective was to be able to run test and tune sessions just using chassis with no bodies. I mounted the photo sensors so just the top 1/4" sticks up above the track, covered each sensor with a tube that has a 1/16" hole about 1/8" from the bottom. Pointed the lasers at the little hole and make sure no other light gets inside the tube. Seems to work great, but I still have to put bodies on the T/F, F/C cars due to the use of wire frames, no problem with stock chassis regardless of brand. Hope this helps any question feel free to ask.
