Black Friday Five—5 Lowest Price Deals on Sets, Digital Upgrades and Cars

The MRRC sixties era GT cars are quick and perfectly detailed. This Ford Mk. IV and 910 Porsche have similar performance, which promises close racing action. Limit one to a customer. No dealers. For one week only.

 

MRRC MC0035 Ford Mk IV presentation car 1967 (C) (E)

1/32 scale slot car, ready to run on all 1/32 scale slot car tracks. This model is said to represent the livery in which the Ford MkIV was first revealed to the press. We understand that the car was never actually raced in this livery.

This car uses the MRRC/Monogram Sebring chassis. The Sebring chassis is an excellent universal 1/32 scale chassis for use with body kits and for kitbashig and scratchbuilding projects. It can be set up to handle well in both magnet and non-magnet racing. It has an adjustable wheelbase and is compact enough to fit almost any sports car, GT, or sedan body and to allow the use of wide wheels ad tires within even a relatively modest body width.

MRRC and Monogram cars using the Sebring chassis come with a variety of different wheels and tires. All of them use the same “slimline” motor which provides more than enough power for most home and club racing. They are ideal “donor cars” to provide a complete running chassis for the body of your choice at a cost often lower than purchasing the needed components separately.

Upgrade your Scalextric track (or that new set) to the best of both Digital and analog worlds with this C7042DC Upgrade Package. This is an all-in-one race control system for analog and Digital racing. You can race up to six Scalextric Digital cars or two 1/32 scale analog cars from any manufacturer by pressing a button and temporarily taping the lane-change flaps closed. To race up to six Scalextric Digital cars, remove the tape from the flaps and push the programming button to race digital. The Digital Plugs to convert the cars must be purchased separately. Save $80.00 on this package deal. If you already have a Scalextric Digital track you can upgrade it with just the C7042 (no controllers, power supply or lane changer), which is also available at a very special price.

 

Scalextric C7042DC Digital 6-car conversion package

An ‘open-source’ output connection enables the enthusiast to connect the six car power base to a computer for additional functionality.

This new Powerbase can be used in Analogue or Digital power modes. This great feature allows the Powerbase to be used with standard 2-lane Scalextric circuits, using two cars only, or with Scalextric Digital layouts for 1-to-6 car action. All features are available in either mode.

Now the best of both worlds is offered – an all-in-one race control system for Analogue and Digital racing.

Requires the 15V Power Supply sold separately (P9303) and two Scalextric Digital throttles (C7002)—also sold separately). You will also want one or more C7036 Lane Changers. If you upgrading an existing Scalextric Digital track you will need the C7042 and the P9303 Power Supply but you can use your Scalextric Digital throttles (analog throttles will not operate the system).

NOTE: If you want a complete Scalextric Digital track conversion you can purchase the C7042DC (note the “DC” on the part number and the special price) Package that includes the C7042, P9303 Power Supply, two C7002 throttles, PLUS one C7036 Lane Changer.

The Digital Plugs to convert the cars must also be purchased separately—each car will require its own plug. Most Scalextric cars are Digital Plug Ready so a number C8515 Easyfit Digital Plug (for most cars) or C8516 Easyfit Digital Plug (for Scalextric Formula 1 cars) is a one-screw unplug/plug-in installation. For other brands the C7005 Digital Chip can be installed but the wire connections must be soldered. All three Digital Plugs (chips) also allow the car run on any brand of analog track (but not on other brands of digital).

Scalextric C7042 Digital 6-car Power Base

The C7042 Advanced 6 car Digital Powerbase can be used to race up to 6 cars on a Scalextric Digital layout at the same time or be used on a standard Scalextric two-lane layout.

The unit has a clear user interface with two levels of features to suit both the novice and experienced user.

The Skill Level option allows you to adjust the maximum power levels to individual cars so that ‘novice versus expert’ races can be run more fairly.

Hand throttles can be calibrated to equalize controller performance.

Multiple gaming modes, timed endurance and total lap format racing.

Setting the car ID is easy via a simple, one-button action.

Jaguar E-Type Union Jack

Famously called “the most beautiful car ever made” by Enzo Ferrari, the Jaguar E-Type was originally unveiled at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show as a high performance and competitively priced sports car.

The legend goes that the E-Type selected to be unveiled at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show was driven from the Browns Lane plant in Coventry, by Jaguar executive Bob Berry to Geneva arriving just 20 minutes before the global reveal with only a few minutes for a quick wipe down.

More than 50 years after its launch the Jaguar E-Type is widely considered a design icon and notable landmark in automotive history, and one that you too can recreate in its swinging 60’s inspired paintwork.
