    im pretty sure the track wont be compatible with what he has for the scaletrix, if i were you, i would go to a model shop or even toysrus and maybe buy a couple new cars for the track.

    but but lol there is an ulterior motive lol the one he has now is huge, my living room is over 25ft long and all week ive tolerated my entire room being made into a ciruit!untill i tiffed and dismantled it today! about 23 ft of track! so im kinda thinking that if i get a smaller track then its a compromise lol

    lol somehow, im not sure he will see it that way. the original scaletrix is the best. The cars generally have more detail etc.

    cool ive opted to just buy some accesories for his existing track, lap counter etc
    looking for some additional racing cars now

    Go for a digital set, try on ebay?
    most people buy scalextric new and then after a few uses get fed up and sell it as good as new, i bought a £250 set for £60 inm october as good as new.

    other wise i've seen a deal recently for the digitial ignition set at half price - mght have been argos?

    good luck he'll love u and use it forever!

    is for kids really
