Scalextric Digital C1275 Race Line 1:32 Scale Race Set

Introducing Scalextric Digital
Digital Race Line set
This set is a great introduction to the exciting world of Scalextric Digital!
Jaguar XKR slot cars
Features two super-resistant digital-ready 1:32 scale Jaguar XKR slot cars. view larger

Enter the exciting world of Scalextric Digital with this large circuit including two Jaguar XKR slot cars and a powerbase. This set is built for speed with long stretches of track, gentle curves, and super-resistant cars, offering players exciting GT-inspired racing that includes tactical over-taking, a feature exclusive to the Digital range of Scalextric.

The powerbase provided supports up to four cars and the layout is fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces. Most analogue slot cars can even be converted to digital too, making expansion and incorporation with the analogue Scalextric range a breeze. All this makes Digital Race Line an excellent introduction to Scalextric Digital, whether you're new to slot car racing or seeking to step up from your current circuits.

All you need to get started

This set includes everything you need to get started with Scalextric Digital, including a large circuit and two digital chip-installed cars. Additional digital cars are available, or you can easily convert most standard cars to run on digital layouts. The super-resistant Jaguar XKR racers feature easy-change pick-ups and the Magnatraction system to help them stay on the circuit. A total of 6.3 metres of track is featured with this set, including two lane-changing track sections, which requires a total of 250 x 135 cm of space in which to set up and play.

Hand throttle
Two hand throttles are included.
Scalextric Digital range
Switch your Scalextric to digital!
Super-resistant Jaguar XKR

British car manufacturer Jaguar has been producing the Jaguar XK grand touring series since 1996. The two slot cars included are emblazoned with Jaguar's branding around bold orange and green colours on sleek black bodywork. The hubcaps, grills, and spoilers are detailed yet durable enough to withstand the odd tumble, true of all in the super-resistant type. Added Magnatraction helps minimise off-circuit collisions and both cars feature easy-change pick-ups.

Why choose Scalextric Digital?

Digital allows you to race more than two cars at the same time and perform amazing realistic overtaking and braking manoeuvres on your opponents. By pressing an extra button on the digital hand throttle, you can make your car switch lanes on special sections of track, allowing you to overtake or strategically block your opponents' cars at key moments in the race. Each set comes with digital cars and more can be bought separately, and you can even convert analogue slot cars you own to digital.

Most standard cars are DPR (digital plug-ready), including the ones in this set, and can be converted to digital in under a minute just by slotting in a digital plug (also available separately). Digital layouts are fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces. Scalextric Digital offers the most advanced and exciting experience yet for racers, whether you're new to Scalextric or seeking to build on your analogue sets and cars.

Replacing the braid plate on a Scalextric car

If you find that one of your Scalextric vehicles is not steering correctly, it may mean that the braid plate is loose (this can be caused when vehicles are crashed together). In order to refit or replace the easy-fit braid plate on one your Scalextric vehicle, please follow the steps below to get your car up and running again:

1. Ensure the tail of the braids are facing towards the rear of the vehicle, not the front.
2. Place the braid plate onto the rear of the blade.
3. Pull the braid plate over the front of the blade.
4. Sliding the plate onto the blade, ensure you push the plate until it clicks into position.

If you have a problem with your Scalextric set, please contact the Scalextric customer service helpline on 01843 233525.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 10 Jan 2012
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Purchased this set Scalextric Digital C1275 Race Line 1:32 Scale Race Set , as a Christmas present, for my 9 year old son. Went the digital route because of the potential added fun of being able to run more than 2 cars at once. It has provided not only my son with a lot of pleasure but also fun for my daughter (11) and me. A third car has since been purchased, which means lots of racing for all 3 of us. At a pre Christmas price of at 150 it was a lot of money but I suspect well worth it as it should provide pleasure for some time to come.

It is worth noting that the cars have been involved in numerous accidents and bits (such as wing mirrors) have inevitably been broken off. And with so much use the cars need regular cleaning to remove carpet lint.

Overall though an excellent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there anything finer than Scalextric?! 6 Jun 2012

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bought this set for my son's 5th Birthday and it was the best thing I could have done. My son's face lit up when he opened the package and he has barely stopped playing it since.

A few words of caution on the Digital vs normal set. Do note that the number of digital ready cars is relatively low. Many of the cars are digital plug ready but that does mean you will need to but an adapter for them and they are not that cheap (though easily available on Amazon).

In terms of track, most of the track sets are compatible, but the sets that include a ramp jump are apparently not compatible with Digital which is a pity but hardly a deal breaker. The fact that you can change lanes back and forth adds a great extra dimension and was what sold me on the digital set which I do not regret.

Overall, a great buy and highly recommended.

Scalextric still have a problem with track connections . Surely after their long history they could come up with a better system . This was a present for a child and can be infuriating when track connections are not good .

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money, a great toy. 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this for my new-born grandson (it is his really!) and the quality of this set and the performance of the cars easily met his (my) expectations. The track fitted together very easily and is simple to take down. The speed controllers work extremely well with both the braking and lane changing functions are well thought out and add an extra dimension to racing meaning that the digital option is a must. The cars are well made and stick to the track unless driven too recklessly.
If you don't want to make a figure of eight circuit to make things fairer then purchase a pack of cross-over tracks. Using just one means that the length of the circuit is effectively doubled and each car has to travel twice the distance to reach its start point unless you change lanes.
Additional track can be bought direct from Scalextrix or from a number of suppliers and is reasonably priced. I am sure that lap counters and timers will be added to future birthday and Christmas lists.

A superb kit and great value too.
Has kept my boy and me busy for hours since Christmas.
Don't buy second hand ones on ebay, go new. You'll be better off in the long run.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This toy is excellent. Forget the older days with the cars constantly coming off the track this does not happen with this set. Yes you do need throttle control but the cars whizz along at a great rate and stay on the track. I am so glad that we spent the extra money and got the digital set rather than analogue as the play value is so much better.
The 7 year old and the 56 year old (Big Child) absoutley love it. Would recommend this set to anyone thinking about buying a Scalextric set.
