    We purchased this set for our sons for Christmas and within a few days one of the controllers had stopped working. I note from other reviews that this seems to be a common theme. It is a shame as the track is a lovely size with lots of different layouts and the kids thought it was wicked. However I now find that instead of being able to have a replacement controller I now need to send the entire set back and with no more in stock I have to purchase at a higher price from somewhere else. I had thought that if it was made by hornby that we would be able to get a replacement part. Bit worried after reading the other posts whether it is worth paying extra or whether to opt for a different set.

    We are very happy with the Scalextric start set we bought for our 5 and 8 year lads for these reasons:
    It's is not branded with a team or driver which saves you about £20.
    The track can be laid by an eight year old which saves you a lot of trouble.
    The handsets have a "skill level control" that allows you to adjusted them so a five year old can keep the car on the track or dad can go mental down the straights but have to slow down at the corners.
    The cars seem fairly robust, anyway they still work on the the 29th Dec!

    The track is not scaletrix track and to expand the track you will need an adaptor. The hand controllers are of a poor quality and you will need a new track piece and controllers before too long. The transformer is unique to the start series so a new track piece and adaptor will be needed to expand teh set. All in all, it's just not really scaletrix and in my opinion is an abuse of the name to make you believe you are getting a bargin. Luckily my hand controller is broke, so the whole damn lot can go back and I will buy my son something decent instead.

    We brought this as our daughter loves her dads set but he doesn't like children near his highly tuned set up...
    It's so much easier to put together and take apart other scalextric cars run on this track but as it says you need conversion track (around a fiver) if you want to use other track... Who cares theres tonnes of different ways to lay the track and my hubby hasn't been on his since our daughter got this saturday morning.
    If he says its good it has to be good. I like the little bit of girlie touch with decorate your own car with the stickers supplied.

    Will be buying again for our nephew..

    First two were flaky - so suspect some quality control issues in china...
    However second lot work perfectly and are by far the best 'start' cars - stick to the track, no little bits to fall off and much better than the 'cars' themed cars that came with the original track that never manage a full lap without flying off (even if applying the stickers is a bit of a fiddle)
    Not sure what all the negativity about these is to be honest.

    Bought two Scalextric Start sets at bargain price. Its my Christmas prezzy for my kid but I have a feeling I will be spending a substantial amount of my holidays playing with him. For this product I've come across a review that was somewhat misleading as this product belongs to the "Scalextric Start" range in which recommended for ages 5+ where for the other "standard" size track the recommended age is 7+....

    I checked it before giftwrapping it and its excellent! Cant wait for christmas!

    Saw this on at 50 notes as opposed to 80 with 6,2m track and thought why not? out of the box the set up was easy enough and after the second time we had it out my 5yr old son could piece the track together on his own. Its a long time since I had a scalextrics set, and the main concerns haven't changed much namely braids ( these needed attention especially when the cars were pushed backwards down the track) and that the stats on the controllers deliver the power throughout the range of trigger movement (minor adjustment required so that one didn't grate).
    Some times getting the cars to run will require a little DIY which was also part of the fun.
    The quality of the cars may not be up to the standard of other scalextric models but the the cars are plenty fast enough and I will need more straights to get a good run at top speeed. The cars took what was dished out to them including my son playing "chop chop ninja crash" to run me off the road after a long fast straight. My son was Ok with the controller set to max after the first outing. I tracked down the adapter tracks and bought some additional straights from the outset.

    One minor thing is that the range is new the track is quite sturdy but not a flexible as normal Scalextric. I think scalextric have just released the lap counter, a start finish grid with the set would have been a nice touch. The people I got the additional stuff from were honest enough to say that the additional curbs didn't fit. the cars have magna traction so really to crash them you have to give them some welly. Half the idea of scalextric racing is to develop the skill to keep the car(s) on the track. . My set came with a 3 pin transformer whiich is streets ahead of the old metal box the used in the old days I consider my money well spent
