Is it just me, or is Scalextric Sport track too narrow for the current generation of low and wide scale racers? Presumably the width of this track was in effect set during the 1950's when 1:1 race cars were considerably narrower. Interestingly, Carrera track is more than 25% wider than Scalextric.

Googling through "alt.hobbies.slotcars" turned up a few positive comments about the extra width of Carrera. The minus being a Carrera circuit takes up more floor space. There was also some speculation about Carrera being "brittle", although no actual evidence.

Are many of us running on Carrera?

"Race For Real" is a bit too realistic for me!

This is what prompted my post.

2 lane Scalextric Sport home track, 2 open-wheeled IRL Dallaras. Whoever is out of the first corner first has the race won unless they do something really stupid. Passing is harder than threading a needle with one eye closed. Just like the real thing!
