This Scalextric Orange Lamborghini was purchased for $17.50. It handles really strong on curves. The car isn’t missing anything, all mirrors are in place and hasn’t been modified in any way.
This is a DPR plug ready car; when new it was priced between $30 and $50.
Fly Dodge Viper slot cars are in demand on eBay. This car was a great find at $15.00. It was one of the first cars that I purchased in 2018. It’s missing the rear wing but the rest of the car is superb.
It’s one fun car, but has a tendency for the rear to slide around. It has no lights but it runs very well.
This Lamborghini is a good find on Ebay. It took some patience because the auction was six days. I passed on a couple of auctions before on this same type of car. Patience is the key to truly finding the best deals. The auction end price for this car was $13.49 plus $4.70 for shipping.
During shipping the left mirror was disconnected. I was able to attach it back by pressing it in. Besides that, there is nothing wrong with this car.

Small Carrera cars are a good way to get into the hobby. The first track I started with was a track from Hobby Lobby that I used the 40% coupon on. If you aren’t familiar with the Hobby Lobby coupons download the app for the store on your smart phone. Once you have the app look for the coupons section. You can only use the coupon on one item.
This Mercedes I got on EBay brand new for around $15. The Hobby Lobby stores in my area don’t carry these cars individually anymore. It was a brand new car sold by user power_hobby.
I run these 1/43 cars on my Scalextric 1/32 track. Due to their small size I can get these cars up to full speed on the straights. To get them to work I had to shave the both sides of the guide so it would fit in the slot.
