I bought this last year - the cars were broken within a day so wouldn't recommend. It has different cars to the normal scalextric, however Amazon were really good about a refund. Amazon reviews have 34% giving a 1 star review so I am not alone in the disappointment of the product
All Scalextric Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
I remember people scrambling over this when it was reduced from c£100 to £60 before xmas. At £40 it’s a steal. Just purchased one to put in the away in the loft for next Xmas 40p quidco as well - all helps £39.60 :D
Yeah, I got this for nephew at Xmas to see if it's something that he would like
Very good find
Are the controllers adjustable to limit the speed?
They had one in my local down to £30 three days ago. Should have posted, didn’t realise it was such a good price!
saw plenty in widnes and warrington, yesterday though!
Anyone spotted any around South Wales?
Oh so it's full stops now......lol (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
I concur, one lane works fine but the other one had major issues. There was too much power (tried adjusting the power on the controller) and car would fly off, sections of the track doesn't work. Ive tried all the known remedies, brushed and blew every part of the track, replaced braids and put the tracks back together. I'm gonna exchange for another one to see if this is just the odd dud one. Maybe I got the one you returned! lol
This one has an automatic lap counter and a hairpin bend section of track. the amazon one has more layout possibilities and an option to elevate the track.. otherwise not much to choose in between them other than the car models ;)
Would anyone know which is better this one or the one on amazon for £20.00 ? thanks
Me too, still got it, tempted with this just to add on to the 4 sets we now join together, the things we do for our kids ( not ourselves obviously)
I just did exactly the same - jinx!
Great, bought as an extension for micro rally set for my little one (and me)! :p
Build quality on the cars is pretty poor. Tyres often rub against shell.
yes, last 3 sold out now.
Out of stock ?
Good little app for slot cars. And obviously a few extra straights make it better too.
Out of stock....
Great price. Scalextric just never gets old.
Thanks. Can't argue with that price. Stocking filler for 5 yr old (and me) Ordered.
Thanks!! Just ordered 😜
No, see my comment, no. 2, above.
£106.95 now. (3 in stock)
Out of stock, but still available to order for delivery under Other Sellers on rigt hand side
Niiiiiiice and thanks for posting :0)
Back in stock this morning, just bagged one for the kids.
Just saw this in my local Asda, its now £40! Checked, online price has dropped to £40 too.
Was on my grandsons Christmas list..thanks for post.
Ordered for the Grandkids for Christmas. Perfect first scalextric! Thanks op. Great price.
Heat. 1 Christmas present down,
Plus double discount for asda colleagues today and tomorrow. ... which is 20% off on total price in store & online...
Even with 15% it's still not as cheap as last week
Great lunch box price heataaaggeee !!!!
That's odd; PRIMEDAY didn't work for me only PRIMEDAY17.
Lego Friends Cupcake Cafe was £24.95, it's now £36.02. Even with the 15% off code it's too expensive. Can't see anything in the Lego Friends range worth getting at these prices.
Both work it seems, their email said just PRIMEDAY, that's where got it from.
ah smart! :p
How handy are you with a saw and some glue? Take the chassis of a scalextric car, glue on the body of a train. Best of both worlds ;)
would this be suitable for my dad or is a train track more grown up? :p
Yes does include two damage resistant cars. A big advantage of arc over digital is you can use any slot car pretty much, great if you've got kids as scalextric are £40 rrp each now, pretty gutting when they go flying off into the wall at the first bend!
The pic should be the one with the box, if you just use the one with track people will think that's all you get
Using code LMVQL gives 20% off at Very making the Hornby set £47.99 (code valid for existing customers, expires 11 June). Still don't know if my son needs it though!
If it's the Royal Mail postal train it'll arrive late with damage to the carriage...
I agree its currently the same price at a number of other retailers including Very so whilst a good price (compared to the RRP) not really a great deal
I love Hornby but the Postal Express set sells for £60 to £70 odd elsewhere (£59.99 at Very). The £120 Tesco quote is the rrp so I think they were selling at too high a price to start with. Still anything to do with Hornby gets my vote.
Sorry,just expanded your pic, 3+ :)
What age group
welcome to the family
I ordered on the day you posted and C&C is today. I'm hoping it joins up with my sons other mini one, we'll see. Thanks again.
Out of stock now
upload to youtube and put them to shame
I was playing with my kids set the other day, With my son. And one of the controllers started bellowing smoke. I've recorded it. But unsure how i should proceed. A great deal by the way. My intention wasn't to rubbish your deal. It's a great price.
yes I posted this just after Xmas.I ended up buying 2 sets at £40 that way my 5 year old can make longer better track layouts and has spares
The Micro sets are harder to play with. The cars fall off the track much easier. I'd be very surprised if the RRP was near £50 let alone £90 for this.
they're quick wee cars... oos now
£90? Debenhams are worse than Argos' over inflated rrps. These sets can always be had for around £30, take a look at other sets with this track layout like Rally Dirt Racers for example

Does anyone know if the 20% off voucher they were giving out before Christmas for use between 27 Dec - 8 Jan will work with this? (in store I mean). Thanks
hawkins hornby They were on here. A couple left now but looks like most are now sold as no longer in the list.
And it's digital, we are non digi! :)
Be careful ordering the Pit Lane "game", pretty sure it is just the display section, you will still need the pit lane in/out pack as well
Some good deals here. Digital Super Cars set is £87.50. Trucks and Karts come to £17.50. ( And Hawkins site has the stand alone Pit Lane Game c7041 for £22.49, another good deal. )
