Nice little Scalextric set, ready for Christmas... Not digital, before anyone asks.

Drifting is a new type of racing, first made popular in Japan. Now you can do it with Scalextric cars! Both the cars supplied in this set are fitted with 360Degree Guideblades that gives you that back end movement to drift. The extra wide figure of 8 track supplied with this set is perfect for drifting and with Red & White markings on the track to give you something to aim for , you will be 'fishtailing' your way around for hours.

Master the track and you will own the streets. Earn respect, get the back end out!

whats the digital version about?

Digital allows you to run multiple cars on the same lane
Additionally you can command the cars to change lanes on special track sections (like points on a trainset)
As the OP says, these are not digital. So the cars stay in their appointed lanes.

They have these in store at Asda last time I was in @ £49.99, they had 3 different sets I think: this one, bash n crash(set 2?) + another generic supercars one

If anyone is interested and lives within easy reach of Kingston-upon-Thames, the Bentalls discount store (in the basement) are selling these sets at £40.00.

ModelZone also have the Micro Scalextric Street Mayhem set reduced from £59.99 to £29.99.

Not to be confused with the similarly named Maximum Mayhem from Wollworths with exactly the same reduction (the ModleZone Strret Mayhem has 3 cars, as opposed to Maximum Mayhem's 2).

Woolworths is probably a better deal though, as they currently have 3 for 2 on toys as well.

Just to add to this:

It is nearly always possible to convert a car so that it runs on digital track. It is either a straight forward plug-in or requires a quite simple soldering procedure. However you do require special track and new transformer & new controllers too to end up with digital system (which is excellent by the way).

It is always best to buy Scalextric in kit form. My local shopping centre was selling of The Lewis Hamilton digital set as it had his old team mate on the packaging. (It is always worth looking at topical sets like L Hamilton etc, for when there is a change the replaced set is always nicely discounted).

thanks everyone for all the info on digital.

Does anyone remember TCR. It was an alternative to the above.
