Scalextric Digital C1275 Race Line 1:32 Scale Race Set
Introducing Scalextric Digital
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
