Product Description

Product Description

The six cars race beside the powerbase display tower
Close-up on one of the Lamborghini Gallardo GT-R slot cars
Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase

C1276 Digital Platinum: the platinum Scalextric set

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.

Advanced 6 Car Digital Powerbase

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).

Six super resistant slot cars

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.

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.

bought from amazon when it was massively discounted
ours arrived superbly wrapped in thick blue plastic & securely taped up with "amazon" packing tape.
Have been really surprised how well the "super resistant" cars have dealt with the bruising treatment they have had. within minutes of us having the set up & running i was certain it was all going to end in tears. Two weeks later & approx 30hrs of racing ALL six cars are still working fine despite taking serious knocks & crashes. though this may well be due to us starting out with the car power levels set too 50% & now running the cars at 75% power.

value for money:
is worth researching for yourself how much the items in this set would cost you if purchased seperatly
6x super resistant cars , 6x digital chips
1x c7042 six car powerbase + 6x throttle controls
2x straight lane changer track sections
i stopped at this point because it had already exceeded by far the price of the set.

durability: crashes / flying off the track at the corners . running into the back of other cars while racing is inevitable & so far theese "super resistant" cars seem to be holding up well . expect to loose the odd rear wing-spoiler / wing mirror / front grill.
Of course theese cars are not "unbreakable" so smashing into the skirting boards at full speed or repeatedly ramming stopped / crashed cars at full speed/power will bust them.

Problems:
the c7042 powerbase, not reliably registering/recording the laps of all cars. This is a "known bug/fault in the firmware/software that ships with this device & after lots of research i have been unable to find a fix for it from scalextric/hornby.

This set is fantastic. The cars are quite durable so high speed crashes are no problem. The 6 car power base makes all the difference especially when there is no-one to race against. The price was excellent with £200 off the normal price. The only small negative point is that the cars in the set have different top speeds making closer racing difficult when racing all six cars. All in all a great set from Scalextric.

This set is truly amazing. If you want the best scalextric set, this is surely it. The box is huge and the contents comprehensive. This is a set you can play on your own which was always a down fall for previous sets, the need for two players. The ghost pace setting allows the set up of cars to run by themselves and be able to be played against. The price was amazing with 40% off rrp, making this set reachable to scalextric fans without emptying the pockets. The only disappointment was the set being delivered without an external box, there was just an address sticker adhered to the main box, which left the set vulnerable to damage. Delivery was quick though, and arrived with only minor box damage. Still very,very good set, so don't be put off by delivery issue. Buy it now!!

Everything worked very well but the display is rather poor. It is not intuitive to programme the controller but once it is done it is fine. Sometimes the race results don't seem to be correct and I believe there are updates you can download to fix this but it would have been better if this had been done. All the features like lane changing are reliable and work well. The cars are tough and had a lot of use over xmas but are still intact. I have chipped one of our old cars and that works well too.

This would have been a 5 star review but for the woefully poor and inadequate instructions that come with the set. I consider myself Reasonably Of-fay with the lack of instructions that come with modern digital equipment but these are worse than useless. That said if you leave it on Basic it is great fun. So far only managed to break one cars rear spoiler. Plastic cement a waste of time as it remains very weak have tried gel super glue and this seams stronger. As a family toy only buy if you have a computer expert in the family other than that buy one of the simpler to use units. I will now stick with the basic set up and keep what hair I have left,
