Bought a scalextric set for my son ... loved it, so does he, we play it ever day when I get home from work. He calls them Daddy's cars, something I need to stop or the wife will ban them!!!
Started buying more ... and more ... and more ... and now I question the value of having a car parked in a garage, so much space for a track.
Made many mistakes so far, loads of "start" track (it's slick, very solid and cheap ... even clever but limited), then bought classic thinking it would be a cheap way to get track (it was) but no where near as good as something new for playing with digital (so it wasn't).
Retro chips ... no mag F1's with old push pins ... no one mentioned their guide blades were shorter ... rar!!!!!
Now I have a ping pond table sized digital track (plastic). A bunch of random cars, and a bunch more sitting on my bench being converted to digital.
