The guide for my Scalextric Challenger keeps popping out going around a turn. I don't see any damage to the guide itself, but am thinking I need a new one.

I've not been able to find replacements at my local hobby shop, or online. So, I'm wondering if anyone here has had the same problem and have solved it, by purchasing or making a replacement?

TIA

The part number is C8283, Challenger Guide Blade Pack.
Armed with this, your Scalextric dealer should not have much trouble locating one for you.
If you still have problems, you might consider sourcing directly from the Scalextric Online Shop

I have found that the normal blue guide blades are easy to modify to fit the challanger.

Just take a look at a grey one and blue one side by side. i used a craft knife.

Hope this helps

Pendle, Getslotted, Slotcity and others have them when in stock.

Alternatively, look at Slotcarillustrated's tip about using a hot blade to 'melt' out the top of the guide to effect a tighter fit.
