hey all just wanting to say hi and thankyou for the forum and info already there for me to read and for any questions and help i may receive in the future
i had scalextric years ago (1st set was the green dick johnson/mobile brock sierra's) used to love the thing until my older brother took the track to his mates house to form a big communal track and i never saw it again. here i am years later and my son turns 7 in september and recently went to a birthday party at an amf bowling where they had a permanent slot car track, anyways he has fallin in love and ive convinced my wife my son has to have a race track at home. (ive assured her im not reliving memories but just between you and me im loving it)
so i come to my first question to the forum (and please if anyone knows of this being covered b4 please post a link or point me in the right direction to some current info on it, im happy to read anything rather than ask you to repost.)
where do i start..
my thought process is to buy a scalextric digital set so that im on current technology straight away , i believe scalextric is for me because the better brands are going to be more expensive and harder for me to access lots of cars and track etc, especially since the track is for my son and i and hes young so im thinking he will be alittle rough with it. id love to wait for the new platinum 6 car set but its out of my price range and so is the gt set.. that leaves me with lane change set, triple cup set or an analogue bathurst set(which would give me more track)..
i spoke to hobbyco at rhodes today and they are selling the triple cup set for $389 atm (best i had seen it is $469, do you guys agree this would be the best set for me to buy as you get the addition pit lane track sections and pit lane game over the simple lane change set for $299?
or do you think i should just go for the analogue bathurst set?
any info appreciated and thankyou again to the forum
