  • Carrera Retail Options

    It has been a couple years since buying cars while finishing the basement so I am a little behind.

    Has something changed with Carrera retail?


    Before packing away the track I was...
    • Buying from online slot shops
    • Buying from a local shop a with limited D132 selection
    • Buying from Walmart analog sets... Free Shipping!!! was the bonus there.
    • Buying from through Amazon from some online slot shops.

    All-in-all... just trying to save a little money hear and there to get the most bang for the buck.


    It now appears that Walmart is putting nothing out in 132 sets.... used to be able to save 20-30 per set with free shipping.

    On Amazon it appears that all is sold by the Carrera Store and slot shops that were using Amazon to sell no longer exist.


    Anyone know what may have changed to not see Walmart selling sets anymore or the slot shops using Amazon? Actually used to be able to get some pretty sweet low priced cars on Amazon.

    Just wondering... Seems the options are getting fewer.

      I'd like to say that the virus had something to do with this but I don't think that's the case except for your local LHS who couldn't let anyone in. Most LHS's anywhere near me don't carry any sets at all. They take up too much room that can be used for items that sell quickly. I don't think I've ever bought any slot car related items from Amazon, don't know why. As far as Walmart goes, who knows. Again maybe just slow sellers and wanted to change things around. When it comes to Carrera there are only a few shops that I buy from. I can tell you that whenever I need something I do a Google search for the item just using "Carrera and the part number". Then sift through all the pages to see what's listed. You would be surprised on looking at the later pages that will show some obscure hobby shop.

        Carrera Go. Small tracks, Mario Brothers and Minions and other licensed videogame toys running on batteries. That's what you'll be seeing at Wal-Mart...

          I don't think Walmart itself ever sold Carrera Digital slot car products. What you were most likely seeing were private sellers that were selling the Carrera products on the Walmart site.

            That could be... but the private sellers are now asking astronomical prices. Saving my money now for a D124 set. Maybe Scaleracing/132sclotcar.us will have something in stock by then.
