The LT4F is different.
It does not just RELEASE the cars, it provides the cue for the driver to hit
the gas. Just like a real drag strip.
The LT4F brings another
dimension into Pinewood and other racing formats. The F stands for "Fault"
and refers to the red lights beneath the normal LT4 light tree.
Most racing gives a
fair equal start to each of the cars, so it's only the performance of the car
that counts. In True Drag Racing, the contestants (or "drivers") open
their own gate, either manually or by a magnetic device, being careful not to
release before the light tree gets to green.
If a driver goes early,
the red light indicates that one or both driver(s) has "jumped the gun."
If you order the LT4-F
Split Start, it does not mean you are limited to split start racing. The LT4-F
can be used in the usual Pinewood racing to release all cars when the light
gets to green. It works all 17 of our start gates, plus it works with the BestTrack
ESS start mechanism.
