Scalextric Demolition Derby at argos, £39.99 down from £99.99,

Found 16th Oct 2014
Scalextric Demolition derby set reduced from £99.99 to £39.99 at Argos. I've been after this for a while and cheapest I've seen it is £75, currently on amazon at £75, never been this cheap on amazon according to camel. Its a full size scalextric 1:32, not the smaller 1:64 micro sets.
Comes with approx. 5 m of track including crossroads and 2 chicanes, the cars fall apart on impact and are lego compatible so can use lego to modify them(sons a big lego fan).
some good reviews on amazon and youtube,

Seems a stonking price, plenty of availability near me(north east) and available for home delivery too

Can't really tell from the page, but can anyone confirm if the power pack etc used is old style or digital? Have sets and sets of old scalextric but no power pack or controllers

This is not a digital set, but there are still lots of different kinds you would have to see what you had, as I think this is like the sport not the start, hopefully someone else can give more light

I went for a Mace instead, it would be to tempting out of the window with a crossbow

I got this set for my son last Christmas and honestly folks, even at discount, don't bother. It's fun for the first few times smashing the cars up but it gets old really fast. By the second day we were fed up of rebuilding the cars and just left the bare-bones base and raced them instead as they go faster. It then lacks a crossover so that the inside lane on the circle section always wins and it's barely been out since. Trust me, you buy Scalextric to race - this isn't the set you're looking for.

This isn't a digital set; those are clearly marked on the box.

its a non digital set but uses "new style" track (think it change about 10 years ago !!) this is used in both digital and non digital sets but you can get a converter to use old style track see link below, old style are the "eyes" at the top.

Oh no! Pressure is on to resist - my ds LOVES car crashes - he prefers racing cars (F1) though. Reviews on Amazon seem to suggest you can build other cars with Lego pieces - anyone know if this would include making these into racing cars please? it's in my basket at Argos waiting for my decision..!

Yes, the bases are lego compatible, so will take any pieces of lego you have, was my main reason for wanting this set, my son will have chima v castle carts racing!

not unless you have the right lego bits, but you could get f1 cars separately for about the price of this full price so you would get 2 spare cars

Make sure you have plenty of sets of brushes as I seen a digital set being used in a shopping centre near me for the kids to play on in the summer hols and staff were changing the brushes literally every 20 mins.

Got this last year they're great. Fits with lego too

thanks for the heads up, have reserved one now and for £39.99 will give it a go and if the kids don't play with it the adults can have some fun with it, heat added

Lego AND Scalextric... Purchased for my little boy. Awesome!

marvelous,website down for essential maintenance????????????????????????????????????????????/

thanks, just crashed the site I think, ooops, I got the screen with the reservation number but then no txt or email so I saved a screenshot , but as the previous post says the site has now crashed :-( hopefully mine is reserved.
Now I am going to be asking how many days till Christmas as well as my little boy :-) .

dang it, i only didn't check out because I was trying to find another £11 toy so I could get the £5 voucher.. now site is down.. sale better be on when I wake up in the morning

reserved 2 in Plymouth but don't want them now, let me know if you want the reservation no.

can someone post the catalogue number please so I can text order it?

sorry the new email confirmations don't have the cat numbers stupid, maybe someone got a physical catalogue? not in xmas gift mag

Looks like the text service is down, as well as the app. The phone service also can't check the stock with the store so you can't reserve using that either.
