The analog circuit: the control is done through electrical stimuli transferred via the rails. It is possible to position two cars in a single rail, and they will perform similar movements. This type of circuit offers up to 8 channels, or 8 players, depending on the brand.

The digital circuit: more advanced, an electrical signal is sent and encoded on the rail. Its technology allows players to position themselves on the same rail by performing different movements. It is thus possible to double or change the lane to increase the intensity of the race.
