Ok here we go guys Tongue

Some time ago I got a 400 Miles by Model Racing after a 1000Km roadtrip
Two days ago I put the game into the workshop (moving the WIP Hard Drivin' away)
At first all it did was turn on some funs a motor (that should not move) and reset the score/timer display (nixie tube/leds)

Some fuse holder, broken trace and a bridge rectifier later I have got this...

It's alive!!!
Now I need to clean all the optical parts, the lens were covered by a LOT of dust, and some still. As you can see in the video I have to turn all the light off to see the game Wink

Right now the only problem is that the game did not dectect crash, almost a dust problem. at 0:43 you can see what should happend when you crash into the other cars.

No "sound" right now I have to open the 8track player to check it first.

Some pics

That's me the one smashing his leg on a chair, my helper is my dad, the real owner of that game Smiley

Tested the 8 track player today, it's running fine after putting a new belt in it, I cannot hear any sound because I cannot make the car crash or winning the race (optical alignment problems).

I have the deck at home and planned to rip the tape tomorrow

The cassette is endless they used only 1 track (2 sounds)
The player start when you instert the coin and the output is "turned on" only when you crash or win the race.
the 2 sounds are
-screech of tires (I think)
-fanfare

Seem that the player cannot drag the tape at the moment, this will be done when the game is fully working.
