Scalextric 4×8 Design

I’ve recently been obsessed with slot cars. I bought Scalextric American Classics edition featuring a Gen 1 Camaro and Mustang. See review here.

Even though you can choose 1 of 9 track designs, I wanted something a little more. But you cannot just add tracks and turns because most of the time the won’t join. So I downloaded RailModeller Pro, a track design software.

After many failures I found one design that finally connected. It’s simple but I had all the pieces.

I am continuing to experiment with designs that fit on a 4’x8′ table.


Scalextric ARC One American Classic Set

Recently became obsessed with slot car racing tracks. I went online and I found an old school track by Tyco that I remember playing with as a kid back in the 80’s. I ordered it but when I received it the tires and motors on the little cars have seen better days.

I jumped back on the internet and found a cool set onĀ Scalextric! American Classic edition with 9 pieces of track that can be easily upgraded by adding more track or you can just choose between 9 track configuration using the existing tracks.

Set it up in my pool room and took the following video. I tried to use multiple angles but the race was too quick and I only have iMovie and it is too tedious to try and sync and cut angles. Enjoy!!!
