|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. We also welcome our overseas visitors, and we are regularly sending parcels of Scalextric around Europe and particularly Scandinavia. 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 - 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. We focus strongly on slot cars and don't do trains, remote control vehicles, electronic toys, die-cast models etc.|
|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.
|Our chipping service is particularly popular with people sending cars for chipping they didn't think were possible to do - small cars, fiddly cars, cars with extra wiring, other brands, etc. Also very popular for retro-fit-chipping have been "Start" range cars such as the Disney/Pixar "Cars" vehicles. |
The chipping page has details of the sorts of cars we have been working on.
|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.
|2013 Scalextric news|
Details of Scalextric proposed releases for 2013 are now available and you can find out more on our New Releases page where you can also order a copy of the new printed catalogue. Highlights include a "Fast & Furious" range, the Lotus 49B, the new "Digital Law Enforcer" set and also a Demolition Derby set with special clip-together cars (see below). Plenty more too!
Here at slotcarcentre we are more than happy to step you gently in to the world of digital Scalextric whether you are getting involved for the first time, or an occasional buyer of Christmas and birthday presents for a slot-car-mad friend or family member, and explain anything that you find unclear or confusing.
| Demolition Derby|
The new Demolition Derby set won Editors Choice at the London Toy Fair 2013. Your intrepid store owner tried out one of these at the dealer preview in January and they look set to be a big hit this year. Once you have crashed into something the car breaks up into several constituent parts based on a "Quickbuild" chassis. The term "Quickbuild" will appear in various places in the Hornby range and is what pretty much everyone knows as LEGO. Lego's patent recently expired allowing other manufacturers to use the interlocking brick format. And yes there is a space under the floor for a digital chip (retro-fit style, not DPR) and an LED hole ready made. Racing these cars on digital could be a lot of fun - with pit stops to replace missing door panels!
|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 (see panel to left) and also see more comments sent in directly to the web site on our customer feedback page. And if you want the latest updates on what's in stock, what's expected, any special offers, and lots of other slot car tips and motor sport related news, follow modelmotorracin on Twitter. You don't have to be a Twitter user, you can visit that web page any time.|
If you are a Facebook user, we are also on there as slotcarcentre. We are one of the most highly followed / liked independent slot car retailers in the UK. You can ask short queries on the Twitter feed or click on Live Help in the left margin (when available) for personal service.
You can also keep an eye on a specific web page for changes using the "Watch This Page" button on the left. Finally if you are looking for something that's not in stock, would like to send feedback about the site or ask about availability please contact us or again try the Live Help button.
If you are new to the world of Scalextric, or reacquainting yourself, welcome on board! We have been an authorised Scalextric stockist, based in Somerset, UK, 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, with its own digital club/display/test track and with items physically in stock and sent out from our premises. So 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.
As well as Scalextric we also supply SSD-compatible cars and products from other manufacturers, plus Scalextric branded gifts.
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. We are now the second largest retailer of Hornby Scalextric items in the whole of their Wales and West UK region.
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.
|Racing with the NSCC|
As well as running our own circuit and shop, we are also involved with the NSCC which promotes the hobby both in the UK and around the world. If you are a keen racer or collector, and wish to get more out of your slot cars, we really do recommend joining. Members receive a monthly journal, have access to limited edition club cars, early access to swapmeets, and also get invited to Hornby/NSCC weekend events. Head over to the NSCC web site for more information.
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!
