APB-Pro, PB-Pro, Pit-Pro and InCar-Pro are system upgrades created by a committed team of Slot Racers from Britain. They have taken the original Scalextric hardware, and reprogrammed it to add all the facilies that serious (and not so serious) racers want from their system.
|ElectricImages is pleased to be able to offer the PB-Pro and Pit-Pro upgrades to the 6 Car Powerbase (PB6 C7030) and the Pit Lane Game (C7041). We will be looking after the Asia-Pacific region, doing upgrades on-demand. See Ordering tab for details.|

What is PB-Pro?
|The list of improvements to the original PB6 is extensive, and includes
- 2-way connection to race-management software
- Improved race handling
- Analog mode
- Throttle Curve maps
- Dynamically controlled ghost (pace) cars
- Track calls to allow improved marshalling
- Variable fuel burn and refueling
- In-field firmware upgrades
PB-Pro is the brainchild of Andy Sykes (AndyS), Richard Girling (RichG), and Colin (RikoRocket).
PB-Pro 6 Car powerbase
The PB-Pro upgrade requires one of the older C7030 6-car Powerbases. There are 3 main types of the older PB6 in the wild - v1.2, v1.3, and v1.5. See SSD Control Page
for the differences. All of the C7030 PB6 version's can be upgraded to PB-Pro. (The PB4 and new C7042 APB6 are different beasts but upgrades are becoming available.)
NOTE, the v1.2 and v1.3 powerbases have significant issues with their outputs blowing up under load, and so the team very strongly
recommend that the hardware is upgraded with Simple-H when PB-Pro is installed. This is because you'll probably be sending it back for repair in any case!
