|Welcome to Slotcarcentre.co.uk, the premier place on the net to find out about Scalextric Digital and buy all your Scalextric Digital and analogue cars, track, sets and accessories. We supply all kinds of slot car equipment from small starter sets for kids right up to large orders for schools, clubs and corporate events. You can read our Scalextric blog and also find us on Twitter and Facebook at the links opposite. This is a real web shop with a telephone number - not a referral agent like Amazon.com or Play.com - and one of the few remaining specialist Scalextric dealers where you can phone the number above and speak to someone with detailed knowledge of the product. Even if you need help with something you didn't buy from us. So if you don't have a model or hobby shop in your high street any more, give us a whirl. We focus strongly on slot cars and don't do trains, remote control vehicles, electronic toys, die-cast models etc.|
| CHANGES ARE COMING...|
This web site is about 8 years old now and is getting tired. It doesn't have full SSL (padlock security), is missing some modern e-shop functions, and Google seems to have really gone off it in terms of getting a good search ranking. Also a lot of the content needs weeding out and refreshing.
So the plan is over the next few weeks and months, to slowly incorporate the Scalextric items into our other web store, Gamescache - which does have SSL, connects to Google Shopping properly, and has lots of other nice e-commerce features too. Hop over and have a look. With demand for slot cars not as high as it once was it doesn't make sense to pay for two lots of hosting and security when all orders can be processed through the one site. It makes everything a whole lot simpler, and will deliver some cost savings in the longer run.
Over there, it will be more of a product catalogue for purchasing from, and all the informational stuff about chipping cars, repair tips, race ideas etc. will either stay on this domain or combine with the blog "round the back" site. As far as possible the same product structure will be retained, but just one level down from the top.
Ordering functions won't be turned off on this site till everything is moved over - including all the parts, which could take a while - and there will be a period of overlap where you can buy Scalextric items from either site. Other than that the same service continues as before - we're not closing, and we have signed up to the new Hornby Terms and Conditions that all dealers have to follow from 1st March 2014. The target is to get it all done by the end of April but that may change. Exciting times! Watch this space for updates.
|New SLOT magazine - BUY HERE|
Something exciting has happened in the world of slot cars. If you have stood in the magazine aisle at the newsagent and wondered why there were dozens of railway modelling magazines and nothing for the Scalextric fan, this anomaly has now been put right. SLOT magazine is edited by our friend Gary Cannell who many people will know from swapmeets and NSCC events. At last, slot car enthusiasts have a full colour glossy magazine devoted to the hobby, that you can pick up from newsagents and dealers (including Slotcarcentre). It's a really informative read. Latest issue and back numbers available. Click here to add one to your order!
|Car chipping service|
We have been installing digital chips in cars for customers for many years, and have experience of squeezing chips into a huge range of Scalextric and non-Scalextric cars that were made before the advent of the Digital Plug. If you aren't able to chip cars yourself and would prefer to have it done for you, hop over to our car chipping service page to find out how to use the service.
|Selling your old Scalextric?|
We mostly only deal with new models, although if you are local to us we may be able to take old cars and sets off your hands. A couple of other places to try are the dealers page at the NSCC where you will find specialists who will value and auction older cars. Or you can have a look at selling on eBay. Completed listings on there will also give you some idea of value if you are selling something similar.
|Service sheets and spare parts|
Are you looking to make a repair to a Scalextric car and you need to buy a spare part? You need to consult the Service Sheet for your car first - to identify the W part number from the car's C number (which can be located here). It's important to find the correct part reference as it may not fit otherwise. This page shows you how to find the W number. See also our list of parts we already know we can't obtain any more.
If you are experiencing a problem with your Scalextric circuit, click here or hit the PANIC button to view our PDF troubleshooting guide. Rather than call or email with a vague problem such as "my car won't go" or "my controller's not working", work through the guide before calling for help as most issues are covered in there. It contains lots of useful ideas to help you track down, step by step, the possible cause of a problem, based on our many years' experience of the system. Then if you are still struggling ask a question via the contact form.
Don't forget we also offer a repair service for Scalextric cars that are not behaving themselves, and either won't run or have missing parts (subject to replacement parts being available of course). If you prefer to have old cars repaired it can work out a lot cheaper than buying new ones, we often receive parcels of cars to look over and fix. If you don't have the time, skills or inclination to mend them yourself, don't call the RAC, drop us an email via the contact form to find out what can be done to get them back in running order again.
| Customer feedback and social networking|
You can read and record your own customer feedback on our Freeindex listing and also see more comments sent in directly to the web site on our customer feedback page.

We have been an authorised Scalextric stockist since the beginnings of digital slot car racing in 2004-5. Some other Scalextric web stores are little more than an auction site or a big retailer's affiliate scheme "front end", but slotcarcentre.co.uk is a proper enthusiasts' store and with items physically in stock and sent out from our premises. We don't just sell these products but we actually use them ourselves too. Traditional toy-shop personal service and advice, but over the internet.
You can phone during the hours above and leave a message at other times, someone will always get back to you. If you are unlucky enough to call while we are tied up with stock arrivals or despatches and there is no answer, try again in about 30 minutes.
We are also very active on social networks, so you can find and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and special offers - see the panel below.
Customers repeatedly tell us that some other slot car stores don't answer their phones or return calls, that their sites are very hard to navigate or search, and that they charge excessive amounts for delivery. None of those should be true here! And also remember that most big chain retailers won't know much detail about the Scalextric digital system, and can't advise about chipping of cars or connecting your track up to a computer for example - we can.
We also operate a parts service for Scalextric brand cars and can usually obtain parts for most cars produced within the last few years.
Customers also send us cars for digital chipping and repair, most are turned around within a week and we can usually chip cars of other brands to run on Scalextric Digital.
Our prices include VAT, postage and packing to UK addresses, the price you see is the price you pay and should be competitive in relation to other sites (overseas customers please see the shipping page in the margin for more information regarding additional costs).
You don't need to log in or open an account to be able to shop. And if you are buying for someone else, an alternative delivery address option is available at the checkout.
Here you will find everything you need, including technical advice, to create your own Scalextric layout.
Being amongst the most experienced Scalextric Sport Digital users in the country, for anything you need, cars, track, parts or just advice, you are in the right place for down-to-earth, honest information, and a safe, reliable shopping experience, with payments securely processed by Natwest.
We are supporting the new Bristol Pound local currency designed to promote small independent retailers in the Bristol area. Find out more at the Bristol Pound web site. You can order online and collect and pay in Bristol Pounds - specify this at the checkout and there will be a price reduction for doing so!
