If you display Derby software to a big screen TV (or project on the wall), you might also consider our Hot Wheels Transponder, described below:


The TRANSPONDER for HOT WHEELS

The Transponder is simply a Judge without a display or illuminator.

You supply both these items and save: The display is your computer or a big screen TV. The illuminator is normally a single light bulb shining straight down on your finish line.

Because the display is generated by computer, the Computer capability is no longer an option. The Transponder always has Computer Option

START GATES for HOT WHEELS

2 Lane BluTrack $129
Cut matching slots in your track

Not much point in being able to time to a ten-thousandth of a second without making sure the cars start fairly.

We make start gates to do just that. A spring-loaded peg bar snaps open so fast you can't see it.

Remote control is also available. Contact for details.

8 Lane BluTrack $195

For Mattel and RaceGrooves, we attach round discs which inserts into the detail on the track bottom and holds the tracks precisely in place.

The technique is used for both the finish lines and the start gate.

Each gate tends to be different depending on specific requirements of the customer, so we don't stock an "off the shelf" solution. We build them all custom.

Let's talk about your Hot Wheels Start Gate.
