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

Quick Guide to Scalextric Terminology

▪ Magnatraction: A magnet located in the chassis of the car generates increased downforce and better traction

▪ Super Resistant: More robust, durable cars, tough enough to withstand full impact racing

▪ 360 Guideblades: Allows for drifting and 360 spins

▪ Digital Chip Installed: Digital chip installed cars for use on digital track layouts

▪ Easy change pick-ups: Quick change braid plates designed to be changed at speed--to maintain your braids simply slide off and on

▪ Digital Plug Ready (DPR): No digital chip installed--DPR cars can quickly and easily be upgraded to work on a digital layout

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Continental Sports Cars Race 'Starter' Set from Scalextric. You'll need a lot of available floor room as the track measures approx. 484 cm.

Track is easy to assemble/disassemble and will configure into 4 x alternative circuits including the popular figure 8. So long as you use the same scale, 1:32, you shouldn't have any problems adding extra track and other accessories.

In the box with the track are two plain race cars plus several sheets of small, fiddly transfers for you to apply. Achieving a perfect finish isn't easy. The stickers rip when you pull them off the backing strip and are hard to get 'just right'. Once on they look good and it's worth making an effort.

Although the cars feel quite light and plastic they fly around the track with a decent amount of traction and take no end of bumps without damage.

The set comes with two handsets, on the small side, each with a two position switch. Drive fast or slow depending upon your confidence. There's also a lap counter that counts down from 50. Useful for keeping tabs on races and adding to the excitement.

Along with the set are 4 additional brushes/braids which you will need as the cars are worn quite quickly. They're easy to change. In fact everything in the set is designed to be as easy and straightforward as possible to use. Makes it accessible to younger children. Has a 5+ age recommendation.

Great starter set. Comes packaged in a huge, bright box, quite heavy at approx 5 kg, and I can't imagine any enthusiast (young or old!) not being delighted on receipt. Has everything you need to get going. Simply unpack the pieces and get started.

Happy to recommend.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A versatile set, adjustable to skill - the variable top-speed setting is particularly good for getting younger users started and learning to control without flying out on every corner. I like that there are enough track pieces to be able to try different circuit shapes, I have set it up using the elevator pieces to get a figure of eight type circuit. I also like that the cars when racing side by side, produce an echoing sound that is like a scaled down version of a real high speed race - the high pitch humming "scream" of engines.

It takes minutes to set up (the track pieces' interlocking mechanism is very user friendly)

The lap counter is ingenious!

This is a great starter kit for anyone who doesn't already own a Scalextric set & it includes everything you need for hours of family fun!

The track it comes with can be set up in 4 different layouts meaning you can have real tournaments with several legs to them. The two cars are well built & travel around the track at surprisingly fast speeds (thankfully there is a slower speed to practise with until you get to grips with it!).

This has already provided hours of fun for the whole family, both young and old and I can definitely see us buying more track in the future to create even more complicated courses to play on

The reason for the one star is due to the fact that after just 4 hours of playing both cars started to fall apart, they both lost their wings but hats not really the biggest deal obviously.
The silver car just fell apart from its track contact point which was hanging loose by a very thin thread of a wire.When I readjusted it the car just didn t work.I therefore took the car apart as I suspected the wires had come away and was shocked to see how just a cheap piece of tat this car was made from in China.The wires to the motor are so thin that its unlikely these would last any time at all.I found actually one of the wires was broken... Yes broken and so had to fix it with a thicker wire which although easy was extremely cumbersome.
There is no reason why these cars have to be made so poorly as there is plenty of room on the inside for better quality ( which would cost little to no pennies at all) for wires and connectors.They are purely designed to fail so that you go and buy another.
The other problem is that the cars themselves in this pack are not matched and the white one repeatedly comes off the track at a much greater frequency due to its poorer design.
This really frustrated my kids as the whole point is to have fair racing and it certainly doesn't give them that.
I m not sure if the price for such cheaply made equipment in the Scalextric world is fair or not but anything designed for racing that breaks the way this did on the first outing is not worth a penny.
The only good points are that the tracks are easier to put together and the cars hold the track better due to he magnet they have in the base but that's it!
It leaves me stuck as to know whether to just abandon this as a bad purchase or get Extras of better quality now that I have started the ball rolling for my kids Scalextric world.
Personally if you are thinking of purchasing for the first time get better quality or you could be left frustrated.

A great value set for £50.
The White car is prone to drifting out and spinning off more than the silver blue one...but im very pleased with the set.
I bought the racing curve accessory C8203 to go with it, as only one track design makes the slots equal length without.
maybe put the faster car on the longer slot if you don't.
