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

▪ 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

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.

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

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.

Scalextric 1:32 Scale Continental Sports Cars Race Set is a fantastic set, comes with a lap counter. I have never had a Scalextric set before, this could be because I'm off the female variety and my older brother got the" boy toys" but I must say I have enjoyed every minute play with this very fast paced car set. My six year old grandson helped me build it up and get me going on technic, for example, slowing down before the bend not on the bend. The set comes with enough track to make at lease four different circuits, two sports cars, and as said a lap counter. You have to apply the stickers to the cars, but this is an easy job. The track fits simply together, but is a little tricky to dismantle, this could get easier with practice. The set comes with the for mentioned a lap counter, this is a simple rotation mechanism that you turn like a clock and set the require laps to be raced. The downside of the lap counter is that when you reach the end, it has no ping or bell, you simple have to keep one eye on the counter to know when the race is run. I would advise that if you setting up the track in a small area, that you protect the cars on the corners from any near furniture with cushions, we lost both bumpers due to the fact the cars left the track and became a cropper on the sofa leg, hence the loss of both bumpers. Bumpers did not reattach unfortunately. This is not a fault of the set but rather my fault for going to fast on the corner. This is a great set with hours of enjoyment for all who play, In fact I'm going to purchase more item to enhance my (sorry our ) enjoyment of the set. Great value for money,well built, super fun.

Great introduction to Scalextric. The track has 4 configurations, but the classic has to be the figure of 8, which gives both left hand and right hand cornering. Ultimately you're going to want to expand the track with a few more segments, but this is a great start, and will fit on most lounge or bedroom floors.

It can be set up or packed away in under 10 minutes, so it doesn't need to be left in place forever.

When you take the cars out of the box, they look a bit plain and cheapo, but this is easily resolved by applying the decals provided. This makes an incredible difference, and the cars look a lot more realistic. This is no mean feat however, as the stickers (which are self-adhesive and do not require soaking in water) are quite small and fiddly and can be tough to remove from the backing sheet without the backing paper coming away at the same time. If this happens, apply a piece of electrical or sticky tape to both the backing and the decal and pull apart, and this will separate them. I'd recommend using tweezers to apply them, and a magnifier if you happen to have one to hand.

You get 4 spare sets of brushes with the cars, which are a necessity, as they tend to get frayed pretty quickly in use.

The lap counters work really well, and count down from 50 to zero reliably (or any number in between).

The controllers (although quite small in adult hands, and a little lightweight) have a nice feature where, with a small screwdriver, you can select a 'junior' setting so that the cars' speed is limited. This effectively means you can never get enough speed up to make them leave the track. it's a great way to get youngsters using the set without being too discouraged. My kids (4 and 5) absolutely love it.
