  3. Slot Racing & Tuning
    Forgive me Father for I have sinned, its been more than 6 months since my last slotcar confession Sure I have posted on the forum, commented on other people's project, even got involved with the design of what could become a pretty little Digital Track and...a pretty big one. But with no racing...

    See fixed post below. I messed up on my first attempt. Post and photos follow below.
  6. Tracks & Scenery
    Wasn't sure if I should start this post here or do separate posts in the 1/43rd and 1/32nd scale forums but settled for here as the track is the one constant. My idea is to do something that doesn't appear to happen much, at least on the forum, and that is to posts some videos of the track with...

Id like to give my scalextric track a bit more of a natural look and paint the track with a grey wash. Providing I cleaned the track properly in advance, would my idea work??? Ive seen peeling...

    PREFACE: I have searched the forums on this topic and the posts are old. 6-12 years old. And talk of breakage of guides or going the other direction Carrera to Scalextric. ISSUE: I have found that all of my Scalextric 1:32 cars (w/Carson chip) that run on my digital Carrera 1:32/1:24 track have...

    Does anyone have advice on rewinding Formula Junior motors? I got a few of these motors in a scrapyard joblot a few years back, I've managed to get three of them running but I'm left with one that is completely dead and one that will only work after a manual spin of the wheels. After poking...

    Just a little note for Simon when you're passing by with 2021 in mind. There are six (count 'em!) Mk.3 Capris that featured in The Professionals and it would be really, really nice to have a follow-up to the Only Fools set. Wouldn't it, eh? Eh? However at this early stage it is worth pointing...

    Q: any advice on restoring classic track? have a box arrived today, with more on the way.. looks like this no sign of actual rust. pondering advice on cleaning the rails up? wondering on a fine cloth and polishing compound, or maybe a dremel with a buffing wheel? not looking for a mirror...

    Tyrrell P34 Policar gearbox conversion for Scalextric 1976 model How to: So as ever you will need a donor car. Currently I think Scalextric have only released the car as a twin set so you have a choice of either car or both! This conversion is reversible for the Scalextric P34. 1...

    Hi all - My brother and I have been working on a track for some time now. It's a Scalextric digital layout FWIW. My question is this: the track itself has been laid down for months now as we've been working ion improvements to the scenery, etc. We are going through a heat wave here in...

    Thanks to the lockdown I've got a few builds done that might otherwise never have happened. First was the Earnhardt race truck and second was this one - converting the Scalextric Ford Gran Torino (Starchy & Hutch) to race spec. In 1978, Will Cronkite bought a five-year-old Ford Torino from Bud...
  18. Scratch building
    Not exactly scratch building - I had two Scalextric Pontiacs with broken rear spoilers. Started reshaping them a few years back to make Chevrolet Monte Carlos of the 1999-2002 period (same basic model, just different rear windows, rear lights and front bumper/grille). Previously I'd done...

    Hi everyone, I've just got back into Scalextric digital after a few years and am building a circuit in my attic to race together with friends using SSDC. I have 6x of the standard C7002 hand throttles which I bought about 10 years ago, but they ALL have the same problem: -They sometimes apply...
