All of our tracks are wood, we have a class for Scalextric NASCARs with modifications and they a good runners. The previous generation sidewinder cars tend to be better than the COT type because those have a higher center of gravity. We have also tried the regular SCX cars and those run well on wood as well, the 42B motors do not have as much power as the ones in Scalextric cars.
No, The rear tyres have to be the original ones that came with the car, no mods allowed on the car at all...
The whole point was to buy a car, take it out of the box, remove the magnet and away you go, cheap, very close, low maintence racing, and as it seems with these SCX cars, they seem to be very reliable as well, and they do take some punishment, especially from our younger club members....
They are not mega fast, but are all very close in performance, which makes for some very close and exciting racing, especially for the kids.
A few months ago a lot of the SCX Nascars were available on special offer from various suppliers at as little as £10.00 each. Unfortunately they seem to have now gone up in price, but shop around, there might still be some around at reduced or lower prices.
All the best.. Martin.
