Information is always important:

I get this

Hi Lasp, Finally we are back in business. Sorry for delay
but the reverse is great. Just raced 60 laps with my son and
no track marshals needed!
So we will send an invoice for 4 cars.
Attached is some info. on the reverse.
Regards from Magracing, Wes R

I resend those to one of my grandchild, waiting for an answer. But it will be positive.

It says in the message "Attached is some info.[sic] on the reverse." Is any of the information that was attached new/useful?

Does this mean to get revers we have to send the cars back to Wes for reprograming? I suppose that makes sense. Wonder what he uses to program the board. I might be able to program the thing myself if he sent me the file the program it with...

This is the message that follow:

Notes on the introduction of reverse to Magracing

Reverse has been achieved by modifying the transmitter pistol trigger
to move forwards as well as backwards. Pushing the trigger forwards
now puts the car into reverse. The receiver board has one component
changed and both rx and tx boards have been reprogrammed.
The cars have been modified by the addition of two small magnets
in the chassis to enable reverse steering and to improve forward
steering. It is now possible to drive back on to the track/wire from
any 'off' situation.
Operating
The extended movement of the Tx trigger has necessitated the removal
of an internal switch which previously shut down the power and
extended Tx battery life. It is now necessary to remove the battery
after use otherwise it will run flat. (2 to 3 hours life approx)
The operating programs are now more complex and,when changing frequency channels, may sometimes not register first time. If so remove the battery
and replace as necessary.
We consider these a small price to pay for the major improvement of
reverse.
