Hello,

I've been a some-time lurker (as a Guest) reading many of the interesting technical posts


Back in the day I used to have a Carrera slot-car track... and then a few years ago, my wife bought me a Scalextric (Classic) F1 set... I was the envy of my friends


I have been gradually introducing my son to slot-car racing, with some Scalextric Start, and more recently with some Scalextric Digital, both of us are loving it! I am still at the stage where I am finding out new stuff all the time about digital slot-car racing


Dan.

PS Just off to the 1:32 Scale Car sub-forum to get help on finding some car spares

Pendles stock most modern stuff. They advertise on the forum if you need a link. Welcome to the terribly addictive world of slot racing!

I will try them... but as it is the front and rear wings for a Ferrari F1 car... I suspect that they are probably on the shelf next to the hens-teeth


Yes, I'm finding that it is turning into a hobby that's getting as expensive as my 1:1 scale car "interest"... and space-consuming too!

Hi Dan and Welcome

Where in Surrey are you based?

We are blessed with many clubs in Surrey and i suspect many have members with spares for sales etc.

Might be worth popping to a local club to have a play.

Have a search on the scalextric website, they did crash sets for a lot of F1 cars, if you can get the W number for the crash set then there are a few spares websites that keep these.

Thanks for the welcome

I'm in West Byfleet. If I can find the time I'll certainly try and get along to a local meet... trouble is, I feel that might end up being expensive when I discover all those things I never realised I "needed"


Thanks,
Dan.
