Useful connector track, required to connect START track to NORMAL / SPORT scalextric track.
My only comment would be that you might need more than one pack depending on what you are trying to connect in.
e.g. If you buy the 4 Way Intersection you need two of these Converter kits to connect to START track
e.g. If you buy the 2 pack of Cross Over Tracks and you intend to use these as two separate pieces you will need two of these Converter kits to connect to START track
We have ended up with 4 sets of the Converter Track and that seems to work well, allowing multiple track connection possibilities.
My other comment is the various Extension kits are rather expensive, after buying several Extension kits and Converter kits we have also bought a whole new Scalextric kit (the 007 set with 4 Way Intersection and Jump). Yes Scalextric profits have risen swiftly since our first purchase only 1 month ago! But the extra 'whole set' gives a lot more value for money, allowing for more track extensions and another set of controls and cars. I have a very happy Son, Husband, Grandad and Uncle!

This is essential to connect the lap counter track(C8215) and Scalextric start set. Products does what it claims. I could connect lap counter track easily using this converter.

Used to convert a Cars 2 Scalextric start kit to standard scalextric (scalextric sport). The new conections work well and I would recommend. The original Scalextric Start Cars 2 controllers are great for young children to begin with but have not lasted well and I have had to replace a number of times and they are surprisingly expensive to replace. The children (age 4 and 6) don't have the restricted speed setting switched on any longer so I have upgraded to the sports controls. I also bought the SCALEXTRIC C8217 Sport Powerbase Track (power supply and upgraded controls). The combined converter kit and powerbase are slightly short when replacing the Start set power section but the track still connects and works well using all components.

You need to know that a converter track is essential if you are adding extra track to a baswic starter kit, as the track is a different size. This worked perfectly and saved any disappointment on Christmas morningf.

This is what you need if you want to add trick bits into the starter track. I'm not quite sure why Scalextric have so many different types of track, but they do. Purchasing these sections after Christmas meant that we could use the bits bought for our 8 year old for Christmas. Just a shame his Dad didn't spot the error before the day!

Got a bargain start set as an intro to scalextric and quickly wanted to upgrade to a proper scalextric sport set up and this pack means i can join my 2 sets for a massive floor hogging circuit. Adds a change of pace too as the cars handle differently on the two surfaces. Great

Does the job 4 joining pieces to conversion pieces and two pieces used to expend the differences in tract types. However why have two track types in the first place!

He absolutely loves it. Just as it says on the description. It is easy to put together apart from the net. Have not had enough patience!
