  • new to slot cars

    hello all, and as the post says I'm a newbie. I bought a scalextric analog set and a microscalextric set for my boys who are 8 and 4 for Christmas. I also got the arc kit as well. Being new to the hobby is there any tips or tricks I should know about the scalextric sets. Also what would be a good first add-on. thanks

    It's pretty straight forward stuff, really. Your first add ons are likely to be more cars and more track. Eventually, you'll want better controllers, but with the ARC One base those options are limited. Better off seeing how long the hobby sticks.

    Of course, the Micro set and the ARC don't go together, so I'm guessing that one's for you?

      I got the micro set mainly for the 4 year old to learn on, plus I only paid 38.00 for it,but I'm sure will all be playing with both sets. hopefully they will get into it and i'll step to a digital set soon. That's the plan anyway.
