Upgrade the Scalextric C1319T Continental Sports Cars set (above) or bring your own Scalextric track up to Digital with this C7042DC Upgrade Package. This incredible Powerbase allows you to race either Scalextric Digital or, by just pressing a button (and taping the lane changer flaps shut), to race two of any brand of analog car. The C7042DC “package” includes everything to upgrade your track---the Digital Plugs to convert the cars must be purchased separately. Save $80.00 on this package deal.


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).

The 410 Sport Scaglietti was the most famous Ferrari in America. The first two cars raced at Buenos Aires in 1956. The prototype for this Fangio/Castellotti 410S was sold to America to be driven (with different racing numbers) by Phil Hill, Carol Shelby and many other top drivers. If the full-size car were to be sold today it would likely bring $30 million or more. The Modelant 1/32 scale replica of the Ferrari 410S is cast resin and etched metal, hand assembled in Spain.

The 410 Sport Scaglietti was the most famous Ferrari in America. The first two cars raced at Buenos Aires in 1956. The prototype for this Fangio/Castellotti 410S was sold to America to be driven (with different racing numbers) by Phil Hill, Richie Ginther, Jo Bonnier, Masten Gregory, Bruce Kessler and Carroll Shelby, who called it the largest and fastest Ferrari built to date. The Ferrari 410S was fitted with a 5 liter 380 hp V12 engine.

On January 29, 1956 Juan Manuel Fangio and Eugenio Castellotti drove the number 43 Ferrari 410S in the 1000 kms of Buenos Aires, the second of two Ferrari 410S factory-sponsored cars. The Fangio/Castellotti car retired at lap 89 of the 106 lap race—Castellotti dodged a dog that crossed the semi-urban circuit—repairs cost them an hour and a half, but it was transmission failure that put them out of the race.
