Race six cars simultaneously on one of Scalextric's largest and most advanced circuits. The 8.55 metres of track includes a bridge and two lane-change sections, on which you can overtake opponents at the press of a button. The Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase records race information, offers additional racing modes, and controls to the exacting standards of even the most consummate Scalextric racers.
The set comes with six super resistant digital slot cars modelled after three of the most exciting race cars: the Porsche 997 GT3 RS, the Lamborghini Gallardo GT-R, and the Audi R8 GT3. Each is controlled with one of the six supplied digital hand throttles. The cars, powerbase, and track pieces are all compatible with standard analogue Scalextric sets.
Most standard cars are digital plug-ready (DPR) and can be converted to digital in under a minute just by slotting in a digital plug (available separately). Digital Platinum makes for a premium start to digital slot car racing, as well as an exciting and expansive means to build on standard analogue Scalextric sets.
The Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase can be used to race up to six cars on a Scalextric Digital layout at the same time, or be used on a standard Scalextric two-lane layout, and boasts a wealth of features that take slot car racing further than usual, including multiple racing modes, ghost car (pacer) racing, and millisecond timing. All of its features also work with standard analogue Scalextric sets.
Features include: a clear user interface with two levels of features to suit both novice and experienced users; multiple gaming modes, such as practice, grand prix, endurance, and pursuit; an 'open-source' output connection for additional functionality when used with a PC (such as with the third-party software 'SSDC'); ghost car (pacer) racing sets one to six cars to run automatically with switchable lane changing and lap counting on the individual cars; and up to 15-volt power for faster car performance with the C7024 15-volt supply (sold separately).
All six cars in this set are super resistant, and have easy-change pick-up braids and extra strong Magnatraction magnets to help keep them on the track when they go around turns at high speeds. Each is modelled after one of three premium race cars: the Porsche 997 GT3 RS, the Lamborghini Gallardo GT-R, and the Audi R8 GT3.
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.
Yes, considering the 6 car powerbase, this is pretty decent deal. Unfortunately cars without lights and really fragile rear wings give me mixed feelings. Read morePublished 15 months ago by M. Saren
Ok, so it is a lot of fun, but it is all built down to a standard rather than up. I remember Scalextric sets from when I was a kid, 30 odd years ago now, and the cars were works of... Read morePublished 16 months ago by A FOSTER
Well packaged item, easy to slot track together, biggest issue is working out how to programme the lap counter as the instructions are not at all clear. Read morePublished on 5 Jan. 2013 by Carl
Bought as a xmas gift several months ago when the price was irresistible.
