Ford Daytona Prototype Scalextric

Ford Daytona Prototype is a good car to take to participate in friendly racing. It’s pretty quick and runs very smooth. It’s probably better suited for tracks with a long straight, which would allow the car to get up to speed.

There’s plenty of advertisements around the car. One of the main advertisements is Target following smaller ones such as McDonalds and Cessna.

The Scalextric Ford Daytona Prototype comes with front and rear lights by default. That sets it apart from similar cars like the Nissan R390 by Slot.it. In addition another benefit is this car is DPR ready so insert the chip and it’s a digital racer.

Average Pricing Is Affordable In 2019

The average pricing of Scalextric slot cars are affordable in 2019. Many cars are in the $39 range which gives many users access to them. At this price range it’s possible to purchase at least three cars per year.

Pricing slot cars at lower levels is very encouraging; it allows more people to be exposed to the hobby.  Prior many of the cars were around $50 which is difficult to spend on a toy.

There are multiple brands in that higher category such as NSR and Slot.it.  When you get into one of these brands you are a serious collector most likely.  They are considered the upper scale of slot car racing.  These cars are more delicate and require a little more care.  They are true replicas of their real counter parts.

Scalextric Track Can You Run 1/24 Cars?

I purchased a 1/24 Carrera Corvette yesterday because I’m a Vette guy.  I’ve always wondered if it’s possible to run a 1/24 car on a Scalextric track.  I’m excited to see if it will work or if it would require some modifications.

The new car should arrive this weekend; I’ll post an update once I try it.  I would like to get an additional car once I verify that it can work.

Luxury Driving Aston Martin

Luxury feel describes the Scalextric Aston Martin. It’s not a racing machine but a car which will show the highest level of slot car manufacturing.

Driving this car is fairly quiet and it handles elegantly. The magnet positioning is very adequate thus helping it easily stay on the track.

Luxury has been pushed to the highest level; working lights in both the front and rear. It has the ability to take a DPR chip converting it to digital.
