i know you guys have probably talked this to death
but forgive me as a newcomer
is this any good as ive read some rather disconcerting reports that people just cant get the thing to run properly
thinking of investing just for the hell of it any just wanted to know if its worth the money and if it gives the pleasure the literature professes??

Just to add a point about the guide. We've noticed that sometimes the car will bounce out of it's slot especially on a long straight.

As Spring moves on and the days are getting warmer. I find my track moving a bit on my table. The long straight is far from smooth and the bumps (Scalextric Sport) are like cavitation ridges in a dirt road causing the Challenger to deslot two thirds of the way down the straight and crash off into the sand trap at the end.

To prevent this, make the guide bigger by squeezing in a vice. Works fine now.

Here is the 'before' and 'after':
