Scalextric Sports Digital Lane Change

Advantagesup to 6 people racing, lane change at will, connects to PC

Disadvantagesdifficult to get accessories

"...that disimilar to the other scalextric sets and the instructions are dead easy to follow. The main difference is internal and allows you to change lanes at will which I'll come to in a moment. Set Contents: The set itself consists of a load of track (straights and curves) which covers an area of about 4sq meters. In terms of total length it's about 61/2 meters. This is plenty to get you started and obviously you can add more tracks later. In ..." Read review

Baaaaargain Ferraris but no beer

AdvantagesKeeps budding Stirling's amused

DisadvantagesYou need to be as rich as Stirling to set it up

"...I joined a club for Scalextric enthusiasts. At that time there were serious leagues, and the clubs all made really long 8 lane tracks out of hardboard, with the conductor rails being copper tape so that lengths of track didn't have to be joined together. The tracks all had marshals in the middle etc etc. Full scenic effects were added as well. Well I was a failure, because you also had to design and build your own cars, clear plastic bodies, rewound ..." Read review

AdvantagesGreat toy for dad.

DisadvantagesKids wanted a look in.

"...to mankind the day that Scalextric came on the scene. Instead of watching just one of two TV channels there was something else to do. Although fairly expensive, a kid's Xmas wish came true when he opened up the large box and gazed on the black plastic tracks and two super racing cars. With a rush almost as fast as the cars themselves, Scalextric became a must for every red blooded boy and even some girls and especially dads. Model slot car racing ..." Read review

My first Scalextric

AdvantagesEveryone enjoys it and it does not take up too much room

DisadvantagesThe track is a bit short so we'll have to spend some more money for accessories

"I think I managed to kid myself that I was buying a boxed set called ‘My First Scalextric’ for my two young daughters. But, I guess that was really just an excuse. Here was an opportunity for me to relive a small part of my childhood, so on an impulse I found myself handing over my hard earned cash. Normally my impulse buys result in disaster, and at first it appeared that this time would be no different. This was billed as ‘racing ..." Read review

great toy

Advantagesdads will want to play with it

Disadvantagesall your mates will want to play too

"This is quite simply the best racing toy on the market with a pedigree going back over 20 years there is no need to worry about it disappearing next week and all the items becoming unreplaceable. It is hard wearing needing only minor maintenance taking but a few seconds with the new car brushes. It is of a decent size unlike so many of these type of toys that are about the size of a match box the cars are quite large which means you can drive them ..." Read review

Scalextric Moto GP world championship. Review with images

Advantageshigh speed races

Disadvantagesbikes not stable enough and keep falling off

"...motorbike version of the traditional scalextric racetrack. The cost of it was £120.00 or therabouts, I bought it with a load of other stuff and cant remember the exact cost. The packaging is very impressive, nice big shiny box, with carrying handle. All the stuff inside is sealed behind cellophane, but you can lift the top flap of the box to see everything you are getting without actually opening the box. In the box you get - 9.31 metres ..."
