Race Set Super Deals, from the best Digital Set you can buy to 1/43 Go!!! sets for the kids.

We have a limited time sale on one of the most popular Ford GT40 racecars. One to a customer. No dealers.

 

Scalextric C2917 Ford GT40 Mk II, LeMans 1966 (C)

1/32 scale slot car, ready to run on all 1/32 and 1/24 scale non-digital tracks. Chassis XGT-2, a MKII GT40, was driven by one of the most famous F1 and sports car drivers of the era – Graham Hill. This model of the car pays tribute to the driving ace with a driver figure likeness of the man himself – complete with his trademark moustache.

Hill’s teammate was supposed to have been Dr. Dick Thompson, but he was disqualified by the French officials for an obscure infraction in practice. Ford suddenly had to scramble for a driver at the last minute and came up with Brian Muir. Muir had never raced at night, never driven anything remotely as fast as the Ford Mk. II, and had never raced at LeMans, but he was available, so he was duly deputized into the team for the event and performed well until the car expired.

Get the most from your digital set by upgrading to allow any two analog cars to race. This C7042C has push-button changeover to analog (after taping the lane changer flaps shut) plus race lap timing, lap counting and race control. If you have a Scalextric digital set you can use your existing power supply and digital controllers with the C7042.

 

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.

Ghost cars (PACER) function for setting 1 to 6 cars to run automatically, with switchable lane changing and lap counting on individual cars.

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

This Powerbase delivers 15v for faster car performance.

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 analog 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 available – an all-in-one race control system for analog and Digital racing.

Requires the 15V Power Supply sold separately (P9303) and two Scalextric Digital throttles (C7002)—also sold separtely). You will also want one or more C7036 Lane Changers. If you are 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 C3878 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.

You can race one of the fastest and most highly-detailed 1/32 scale Slot.it cars that is available at a very special price for one week. No dealers, One to a customer.

 

Slot It SICA13C Jaguar XJR12, #35, LeMans 1991.

Motor: FC130.

Easy, low-cost performance increase for Slot It GTP/Gp. C cars racing with magnets on plastic track…

Install SIPT06 19x10mm silicone slicks (a pair of these comes as extra tires with most of these cars) and an SICN07 racing magnet. The tires slip onto the rear wheels and the magnet snaps into the chassis in place of the original magnet. These two simple changes make a huge difference in the handling of the car and produce much faster lap times.

Need more grip? Try these aftermarket tires! Supertires 1400, 1401, 1402. 1403, 1404, 1405

The Jaguar XJR12 is a sport-prototype racing car, born in 1990 to replace the XJR9.

This full-size car featured a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The engine was a V12 engine with two valves per cylinder. In 1990, displacement was 6 liters for the IMSA version and 7 liters in the Group C configuration; these values were increased in 1991, becoming 6.5 liters for the American version and 7.4 for the European one, whose weight was respectively 930 and 1000 kg. The XJR12 was employed by Tom Walkinshaw Racing in particular for the long distance races, such as Daytona, Sebring and Le Mans, as this car was very reliable and regular in race trim.

The car was a superb racer: in 1990, it finished 1st and 2nd in the Daytona and Le Mans 24 Hours races, and in 3rd place at Sebring. Later on, it finished in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place at Le Mans in 1991, and in 2nd at Daytona in 1992. Car #35, driven by Jones, Boesel, Feré finished 2nd at the 24h of Le Mans in 1991.

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.

Ghost cars (PACER) function for setting 1 to 6 cars to run automatically, with switchable lane changing and lap counting on individual cars.

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.

Aircraft modelers call it “battle damage”. In the heat of a race, pit crews do some wondrous things, including changing-off the whole rear body clip. The new Sideways 512BB is a replica of the car that had its tail replaced with one from a car that had crashed earlier at Le Mans in 1980. Yes, there are only a few available.

The number 78 car crashed and destroyed its tail clip so its crew pulled the tail from the team’s number 79 car (that had crashed in the first hour) and duct-taped it onto number 78 so the 78 car could go on to finish 23rd overall.

John Surtees’ iconic red and white paint scheme was applied to his 1970 McLaren M7C and the Scalextric replica is in stock now.

 

Scalextric C3834A McLaren M7C John Surtees, 1970 Dutch – Limited Edition

No man is ever likely to emulate John Surtees’ feat of winning World Championships on two wheels and four. A racer who would be equally at home in the Halls of Fame of both motorcycle and car racing, ‘Big John’ rarely won the accolades his success deserved. Surtees’ prowess on motorcycles won him universal respect, and soon after trying out cars for Vanwall and Aston Martin in 1959, he switched full-time to cars in 1960. Having driven for Lotus, Ferrari, Honda and BRM, Surtees then set up Team Surtees in 1970. The season didn?t start to well with the first 3 races all ending in retirement, but in round 5 at the Dutch GP held at Zandvoort Surtees got his first point of the season. Surtees had to work hard for the victory after Qualifying 14th, but after some hard work and some luck through others retiring Surtees held on to the final points position.

The powerful V8 induction engine produces 493.16 hp beneath the hood of this top notch racer – the successor of the Audi A4.

Slot Car Racing on the U.S. GP weekend in Austin

 

Electric Dreams crew created a slot car replica of the Austin Formula 1 track for the United States Grand Prix weekend with Sebastian Vettel trying for a new lap record. Shell and Ferrari hired Electric Dreams to make a replica of COTA and we picked Scalextric Digital track with the ARC Platinum wireless controllers and the App race management system so Sebastian could race against three other cars.

Carrera 25215 Fast Classics II set 1/32 scale analog

Fast Classics II set 1/32 scale analog.

6.56 x 2.62-feet, 14.8-foot lap length.

Vintage power boost

Two traditional rivals are lined up for this summit meeting. The Shelby AC Cobra took to the tracks achieving a breath-taking 240 km/h, and in 1965 it was ready to make Gran Turismo history. The attempt to break European dominance in the GT class with this Anglo-American sports car was a complete success. The specs of the opponent, the Corvette Sting Ray Coupé, are no less impressive. The growl of the V8 cylinder engine still has jaws dropping in crowds around the world. In 1967 at Le Mans the Corvette set a new speed record at 276 km/h. The originals would be almost priceless, but when they meet in the figure 8 on the 14.8-foot Carrera race circuit it’s the joy of driving that is priceless.

John Surtees’ iconic red and white paint scheme was applied to his 1970 McLaren M7C and the Scalextric replica will be here soon so it is time to pre-order yours.

 

Scalextric C3834A McLaren M7C John Surtees, 1970 Dutch – Limited Edition—PRE-ORDER NOW!

No man is ever likely to emulate John Surtees’ feat of winning World Championships on two wheels and four. A racer who would be equally at home in the Halls of Fame of both motorcycle and car racing, ‘Big John’ rarely won the accolades his success deserved. Surtees’ prowess on motorcycles won him universal respect, and soon after trying out cars for Vanwall and Aston Martin in 1959, he switched full-time to cars in 1960. Having driven for Lotus, Ferrari, Honda and BRM, Surtees then set up Team Surtees in 1970. The season didn?t start to well with the first 3 races all ending in retirement, but in round 5 at the Dutch GP held at Zandvoort Surtees got his first point of the season. Surtees had to work hard for the victory after Qualifying 14th, but after some hard work and some luck through others retiring Surtees held on to the final points position.

This week’s collector car find. Only for one week. One to a customer. No dealers.

 

Scalextric C2642 Ferrari 330P4 Le Mans 1967, 3rd place (C)

1/32 scale slot car, ready to run on all 1/32 and 1/24 scale non-digital slot car tracks. With working headlights and taillights.

The 1967 24 Hours of LeMans shaped up to be the decisive battle between the forces of Ferrari and Ford. To open the season Ferrari’s 330P4 finished 1-2-3 at Daytona after Ford’s Mark IIs, upodated from their 1966 LeMans-winning form, fell out with identical transmission failures. Ford came back to win at Sebring with its new Mark IV. At LeMans the Fords dominated the early running but suffered a catastrophic multi-car crash during the night that took several of their top runners out of the race, giving Ferrari some hope of victory.. However, the Mark IV of Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt ran faultlessly for the entire race to take not only the overall win but the Index of Performance. Two Ferraris, the #21 car of Scarfiotti and Parkes (C2641) and the #24 car of Willy Mairesse and Jean Blaton (who raced under the nom de course of “Beurlys”) finished second and third, ahead of another Ford. This model, C2642, is the 3rd place P4
