  2. Wanted
    I am currently searching for more SCX Nascar CoT type. Ideally from the UK. Not after anything brand new or boxed, just gotta have all the bits (not bothered too much about braids or tyres condition). I came across a fair amount of them last Havant swap-meet at a fair price (£15-18), just wish...
  3. 3D Printing
    Although originally posted on FB, I will post here too as it disappear a little too quickly on FB. What you see is a little experiment with a different type of motor-mount/chassis 3D printing method. I made available on my Thingiverse: Scalextric Ford Sierra Chassis by Johnny_s_Workshop...
  4. Vintage & Collector's corner
    Hi all, Second thread here, this one I think is going to be a little challenging! My Dad brought over the rest of his old slot car stuff (I'll be selling the Airfix track and controllers) and I want to restore the F1 cars, see pics below. The restoration I can handle pretty well, but what...

  6. News
    I just saw DK's review of the sample he was sent and this chassis already looked a bit suspect with its tub like pan but the motor is now vertical ? How did that get by the first inspection. We know this design does not work. Yes, its a toy, but you still need to sell models and after seeing...
  7. Slot Racing & Tuning
    Hi guys, Total n00b here. Bought my kids the Micro Scalextric Wacky Races a while ago. They enjoyed it so much I made the jump to regular Scalextric with the latest Bathurst Legends set. With the Wacky Races set the kids would play with the controller on the 2 least powerful settings. With...
  8. Vintage & Collector's corner
    I've got a late(ish) Scaley Porsche 935 (C431 I think) which is supposed to have working lights. It's got all the gubbins, but they don't. Work, that is. I can see how the headlamps work, and why they don't (the little grain-of-wheat bulb has long since met its maker). However, the tail lights...
  9. Vintage & Collector's corner
    While indulging my hobby of resurrecting Scalextric bin-fodder, I think I may have lucked into something out of the regular run. I've just obtained a c1980 MacLaren M23 which is either a very nice restoration, or has never run. This intrigues me as, although it's neither rare nor desirable, I'm...
  10. Scratch building
    This model is the third livery Scalex released of this new mold and I almost missed it. When I realized that I did not pre-order it, it was gone. However, I managed to get hold of a couple of them. The idea was to make a conversion with a 3dp chassis. There are a couple of options on...
  11. History & Culture
    Hi Chaps, I am a mature student doing an honours project on remote presence and play and using Scalextric or slot-car racing in general as a metric. I have seen that there have been a few manufacturer made ghost car systems but most didn't last long before being discontinued. I wondered if the...
  12. Wanted
    I am looking for some modern 1:32 Scalextric F1 cars, preferably slightly used (no damage) or new, and DPR. Please PM with photos (if possible). Cheers! Jason

  13. Scalextric Digital (APB, ARC PRO)
    Greeting community... me again! I am writing this afternoon in hopes that I can absorb some of your knowledge and expertise. I am in the process of retrofitting a Slot-It Audi 4wd e-tron with a SP15c SSD to run on a SCALEXTRIC ARC Pro track. After opening the Audi, though the box stated "SSD...
  14. 1:32 scale Cars
    Greetings community! Anyone out there know if there is some magical Scalextric 1:32 tire replacement guide? I see that Slot-It conveniently puts out part replacement guides for their cars, would be nice if Scalextric offered the same. Trying to replace front and rear tires (preferably better...
  15. Scalextric ARC PRO
    Not sure if there was an update that I missed, but I tried to connect my Samsung S7 (Android) running the Magic ARC app to the ARC Pro powerbase, and it was a no-go. Pulled up the garbage SCALEXTRIC app, and it connected instantly on my iPAD. Why can't Magic ARC be iOS compatible - have NEVER...
  16. Welcome & Introductions
    Greetings! I am a US Service Member stationed in Germany with my family. Though I dabbled with AFX slots in my youth, my wife and I decided to jump back in to the world of slot cars to break the COVID monotony. We decided to custom build a SCALEXTRIC ARC Pro system on a 10 foot by 6 foot...
  17. Scalextric ARC PRO
    First let me apologize for my ignorance, kind of new to slot. I am running a custom built Scalextric ARC Pro track system, and me being me (a tinkerer), I want to best that I can get out of this setup: I just ordered Slot-It SCP-3 controllers, which quickly turned my attention to their cars...
  18. 1:32 scale Cars
    I bought a used Scalextric analog set locally. What year if a set is this? The tires are very dry rotted, we made them work better by doing a burn out on 800 grit sandpaper. Where do I get new tires? What size is this? Is there a trick to rejuvenate them? (WD-40?) The previous owner's kids...
  19. The SlotForum 'Swap Shop'
    I am looking for a couple of the Throttle pro boxes, the one with the red knob on for use with Scalextric and SSDC. I am prepared to give them a dust down if you can dig them out from the back of the storage room
