I realize this is an old complaint. My Scalextric guide blades keep breaking. My hobby shop must love it. The only option I know of is to buy C8329 Guide blade/4 braid plates which costs me $4 + S&H. I don't need any more braid plates, but can always use more guide blades. Is there a replacement guide blade that is designed better that doesn't require modifying anything?

Dave,
Get some B-Nova guide repair pieces and fit Slot-it guides to your Scalextric cars. It is really easy and they are available from Electric Dreams in Los Angeles or 132 SlotCars in Tacoma, Washington.

Cheers,

Henning,
Can you give me part #s for the B-Nova guide repair pieces and Slot-it guides.
I don't want to get the wrong ones.
Were these parts created as replacement parts for the Scalextric guide blades (since they are so lame) or were they originally created for other cars and just happen to be compatible with Scalextric cars?
Thanks.
Dave

Dave,
These parts were created to either repair a broken Scalextric chassis that broke at the pick-up guide and/or to replace the standard Scalextric guide blade with a Slot-it guide blade. The Slot-it guide blades are more robust than the Scalextric guide blades.
The B-NOVA Guide Adaptors do not a part number as such and come in packs of three different sizes (1/32, 1/16, and 3/32 thick) so you can get your guide at the correct height for the car you are fitting the Slot-it guide blade to. Slot-it guide blade part numbers are CH10 for plastic tracks ($4.99) or CH7 for wood tracks ($5.99). Also, you would then need a few brass eylets and guide braids.
Hope all this information is of use to you but you will find the Slot-it guides to be stronger and the cars handle better than with the Scalextric guides.

Cheers,
Henning
