Firstly, thanks for the advice on a previous post. I am now the proud owner of a scalextrix track with 2 Le Mans cars


Also let my wife and sister-in-law have a few goes, and they love it which is great because I have some competition, but already the cars have been crashed loads. They don't seem to realise that you go quicker if you actually stay on the track!!

ANYWAY what I was wondering was do different cars have different handling abilities?

Do F-1 go faster than mini coopers?

They all have the same tires, pickups and motors (right?) so do they drive the same


I am referring to out-of-the-box scalextric, I am aware that modding the cars will change them!

Would love to hear your comments....

The magnets, motors and braids are all the same on all Hornby Scalextric cars.

That said, an F1 car will out-perform a Mini Cooper simply because it is low, wide and has a good center of gravity. This gives it more grip. The mini is high snd short so will roll easily, despite having the same magnet as the F1 cars.
