I am trying to setup a situation where I press a button and a minecart is pushed onto some powered track where it is then boosted up and giving a good speed.
This is what I tried (cross-section):
[P]M____ ^ piston ^ minecart ^^^^ powered track
When I give power to the piston, the minecart gets shoved onto the powered track fine, however it just rests there. In order to get it boosted by the powered track, I have to manually touch it.
Is there a way to get the cart boosted automatically when it gets pushed onto the track?
