ok, at our club the f1 class has just turned into destruction derby, you need a new car every 3 weeks, a complete rebuild every week... now the ninco cars arent causing many problems.. the odd crash here and there, but any scalex models no matter what is done to them theyre just so un predictable they are considering banning scalextric cars.. i can see why, because i have one of the offending f1 cars, but if it does go off pieces go everywhere ive had the car for 3 weeks now the body is completely destroyed, and im on my 3rd chassis. so the question remains: should the scalex cars be banned or not? id like to hear the opinions of other people

I have 4 SCX F1 cars, my friends are very rough on them and they have held up very well. Most damage is the just the front suspension, and then only the kingpin pops out of the upright for the steering. They pop right back in, but sometimes are hard to see with old eyes. The other problem was losing a front wing as they are clipped onto the struts. A little glue has stopped that. The guys really like the F1 cars and since they are not theirs race to win at all costs. My only experience with Scaly F1 cars are the new classic 1957 models. I am off to the Chicago hobby show this morning and Scalextric/hornby is to be there. I may reconsider buying any of their F1 cars after reading this post.
