Welcome to the exciting world of Scalextric Digital! This set allows you to race up to four cars at the same time (three cars are provided), performing amazing, realistic overtaking, and braking manoeuvres. You can switch lanes at the touch of a button to overtake or block your opponent. The set includes everything you need to get started with Scalextric Digital – it features a large circuit and comes supplied with three 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 Audi R8 police car's siren sounds and its lights flash as it races off in hot pursuit of the street racing Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Corvette. All cars feature easy-change pick-ups and the Magnatraction system to help them stay on the circuit. The Audi R8 features flashing lights and siren, and the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Corvette feature working lights at the front and rear. Four cars can be raced simultaneously using the powerbase provided in the set, or you can upgrade to the C7042 Advanced Six Car Digital Powerbase for six-car races plus a host of additional features.
This long track includes two lane change sections, a hairpin, and a tricky chicane section. Digital layouts are fully compatible with standard Scalextric track pieces, and you can add track packs to extend your layout: C8510 Track Pack 1, C8511 Track Pack 2, C8512 Track Pack 3, C8526 Track Pack 4, and C8514 The Ultimate Track Pack.
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.
