Eliminate the competition with the Scalextric Demolition Derby!
This award-winning action-packed Scalextric set comes with two clip-together cars which break away on impact and can be put back together. Customise them with clip-on wheels, decal sheets, and mix and match parts, then get ready to race your opponent using the controllers to send the cars whizzing around the track. The last man standing wins! Then, simply rebuild and re-customise your cool-looking hotrods, and race to destroy again.
The figure of eight racecourse features crossroads and twin-chicane sections, providing plenty of opportunities for lots of high-speed collisions! Suitable for young racing drivers aged 4 years and over, this set is the ultimate young boys' toy, combining the unique qualities of traditional Scalextric racing with the addition of construction and destruction!
You can also combine the Demolition Derby set with additional Scalextric track packs (sold separately) to extend your layout and increase the destruction fun! Track packs include the C8510 Racing Curve, the C8511 Leap, the C8512 Hairpin Curve, and the C8526 Straights.
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.
If you have a problem with your Scalextric set, please contact the Scalextric customer service helpline on 01843 233525.

The track is just as it says in the product information. I'd recommend thinking about whether you have the space to leave it set up permanently as an adult does need to put it together each time. It is easy to carry the whole track from one room to the other if you need to move it, which is our case. The track is of great quality and extra pieces can be bought seperately so it can be expanded with time.
This toy doesn't need batteries and is connected to the mains. I would recommend having an extension lead handy as the wire is a little short for where the plugs are in our lounge. It is all connected up very easily and everything worked well first time. Much fun has been had over the past few days and a lot of shrieks of delight & laughter can be heard when the cars crash! They can get up to quite a speed but will come off the track if you press too hard for too long. My daughter has had fun too so it's not just for the boys ;-)
In the (satisfyingly large) box you get a fair amount of track, two cars, as well as two hand power throttles and a power supply. Set up is fairly simple, each car, which is can be customised by the addition of stickers that are also provided, can be built in different ways, with a choice of bonnets and backs - bits can be left on or off and each driver can choose the configuration of their car. The pieces attach by a familiar looking stud system that has more than a nod to Lego, and is indeed compatible with said bricks. This, it turns out, makes for hours of fun as well as lots of interesting experimentation - I can report that a very tall tower car is not going to make it from concept car to the road any time soon, and a Santa lego minifigure has had the ride of his life! The supplied little articulated driver that comes with each car has more than a passing resemblance to a well known car show white helmeted driver: all adding to the fun.
Since we got this toy we've spent hours playing with it and testing it, literally, to destruction and a quick rebuild beyond. Everything is still working really well, and I'm sure we will have many more hours fun with it. The track is a little hard to put together, and requires adult input, and doesn't seem to be quite as well made as the track of my youth, however you can buy extra pieces and the a satisfying crossover and some straights with a wiggle which allow cars to come into close contact, are included which makes for lots of fun.Read more ›
For anyone who has more Lego, they can build more complex cars than those present in this set.
Would highly recommend anyone else who wants to smash some cars and put them back together
This had been one of my most highly prized review freebies - because it seemed so perfectly adapted to my young nephew. He loves building things. He loves Lego. He loves cars. He loves playing with his dad, who has been doing the midweek living in the City and commuting back home to the family at the weekend bit for the last several months after his job changed.
The principles involved in this set are great: the usual Scalextric set, combined with a race to destruction.
The practice is less so.
I query the 4+ age rating on this set. It doesn't seem to be purely a safety rating, but rather a recommendation in relation to the ideal user age.
In my view, 4 is too young. I've worked with children aged from 3 months to 11 years) part-time/holidays/volunteering for coming up for 20 years. In my view 6-7 is a more realistic age range as a start-age recommendation for this set. The pieces are fiddly and fall apart far too easily for younger users. My 4 year old nephew, who is quite dexterous, gentle and has been taught to treat his toys with respect found it really upsetting that 'his' car would just fall apart in his hands. He can build quite happily with Lego - which he loves - and didn't understand why this wasn't staying together for him.
My adult brothers, however, found playing with this highly amusing - and derived great satisfaction out of reducing one another's vehicles to pieces.

My girls (7 and 9) love this - only unboxed today - but hoots of laughter are quickly replaced by 'aww nooo' and a car in pieces is brought to be rebuilt, which I know is the point... Read morePublished on 27 Jun. 2015 by Bex
