Grid 24 is an exciting, accessible start to endurance racing for beginner racers. Four separate circuit options for 4.3 metres of track help racers get used to consistent speed and focus with gentle curves and stretches for break-neck sprints. The included lap counter allows racers to set up to 50 laps of endurance racing.
This set includes everything you need to get started, including skill level hand throttles – twist the dial on the side for the novice setting so that cars won't come off the track, or set it to advanced for more realistic skill-based racing. Also included are 4.3 metres of track, requiring 170 x 170 cm of space, a lap counter, and two customisable endurance racers.
The set includes endurance cars in electrifying purple and scorching red, complete with decal sheets so that racers can customise their cars how they wish. The cars are also built with Magnatraction and easy-change pick-up features.
A lap counter is included in this set so that two drivers can set up to 50 laps of endurance racing. Each hand controller has a two-position selector switch which allows the driver to choose slow or fast speed settings to reflect the driver's experience.
The Scalextric Start track has a very easy push-together, pull-apart system which keeps assembly time down to a minimum. There are four alternative track shapes to make, and the vehicles are tough and robust. A sheet of decals is supplied with each car so that the car can be decorated with racing graphics.
The Scalextric Start range is designed to be the perfect introduction to Scalextric for children aged 5 years and up, featuring parts designed specifically for younger racers. The track pieces are especially easy to connect and disconnect, making for easier assembly and tidying away. Each set includes super tough cars built to take a tumble, and they need not whiz off the track at all thanks to the optional novice setting on the hand throttles. Scalextric Start is also compatible with standard Scalextric products.
Scalextric Start provides everything for the rookie racer in a ready-to-race package. Accelerate into the world of 1:32 scale slot racing; available in a selection of ready-to-race sets, Scalextric Start provides everything for the rookie racer!
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.
Badly made, flimsy toy that is not suitable for the task. The cars hardly ever make it round the track without stopping for some unknown reason. Far too sensitive. Read morePublished 17 months ago by JJ Glebe
