The way this connects to your track is by a "converter" piece which transforms what seems at first glance to be a half-length accessory to the size of a full length track piece. For some sets with few or no customisable straights (a figure of eight track, for example) it can be challenging to find space for it without a big rethink.
Due to restricted space I ended up having to cut/file away fastenings from a couple of mis-matching pieces and super-glue them together.
So, don't make the same mistake as me. When planning your track, allow a full track length for this accessory!
The cars move so fast and if they do happen to leave the track, it is often difficult to work out who has done how many laps - not now.
Not only does this accessory count down the laps (which can be set independently for each lane, therby introducing a handicap system) it also times each lap showing the fastest time for each player at the end of the race. This gives another "opponent" to beat.
The set also includes a convertor straight to make it compatible with both the classic and sport track sets.
Overall a great addition to any scalextric set.
My second issue with Scalextric is that there is absolutely no response from their customer service email address, other than an automated acknowledgement. So if you have any problems, don't expect Scalextric to sort them out.
This and other recent experiences with Scalextric have totally put us off buying any more bits from them.
The one I ordered had a defective converter piece, as the slot groove wasn't cut out correctly. This meant that cars would get stuck rather than run through.
The replacement was the same, so I'm giving up and going to find a second hand seller who has a correctly working piece.
