The Gricer said:Early versions of the Hornby Pacer had both cars motorised. Later ones only had a motor in one car. Also some versions had the pickup connections paralleled through the coupling. As you might expect the dual motor ones with the paralleled pickups always seemed to run best.
Well actually if that's the pacer you've got then that shouldn't happen. The idea of connecting the pickups through the couplings is so that the situation you mention doesn't happen. i.e. as long as one set of wheels is making good contact with the track the motor(s) should still receive power.158809 said:ive got that pacer. When i take 1 set of wheels of the track it doesnt move which i suppose is good so you know when its off the line.
