We have Scalextric digital with 4 controllers. Control position 1 currently can't be used. When we put a car on the start track and press and hold in number 1, we don't get the flashing light so no...


I can't remember if the 4 car powerbase checks for the presence of a controller in the socket before programming a car. Anyway, check by plugging a controller into every socket and trying every combination of car being programmed to every ID and also sit cars on both lanes for programming, to thoroughly check all combinations and possibilities. If you can rule out individual cars, controllers, or lanes of the track, then whatever is left (i.e. the powerbase itself) must be the problem, in which case contact retailer or Hornby Customer Care.

Just got a brand new scalextric digital set. am pressing the button to synchonise controller to car, green light flashes twice but carstill does go. Can you help thks


If it is only one of your cars that is not working then it sounds like the digital chip is bad or not wired in properly. Make sure you only have one car on the track when you are synchronising.

I have two pieces a ramp from which car is supposed to take off, and one for landing. But i cannot see how they connect to the rest of the track


Just had the same issue and have figured it out! Build the complete track as normal, and the ramp just clips onto the track in your desired location! If you want to see a pic of what i mean just type scalectrix leap ramp into google image search
Merry Xmas

Kink's in track stoping cars going round track


You can soak the track pieces in almost boiling water. Heat them up for a few second until they get soft where the kink is, Straighten out the kink and then let it cool down. Straight pieces can be placed on a flat surface with a flat weight, like a book, placed on them until cool. Curved pieces can be held in place then run under cold water. You might have to do it several times to get the right angle so that the kink is smoothed out. Be careful not to distort the track to much. A blow dryer can also work, but tends to wrap the track if held in one place too long.
