New SCX Slot Cars Have Vastly Improved Performance! Check out the Great SCX Slot Car Race Track and Track Accessories Too!

SCX is a Spanish company (nearly 45 years old) and one of the innovators and pioneers in the slot car industry. For many years, they have produced a wide variety of innovative slot car products and great SCX slot cars!. SCX continues to produce great slot cars, track accessories and some really cool "cover art" for their unique track sets! SCX has some sort of business relationship with Scalextric. In fact, in Spain SCX is called Scalextric and Scalextric is called "Superslot." To this day, I don't know exactly what the deal is with that, but it really doesn't matter. Except for the SCX track, which is completely interchangeable with Scalextric "Classic" track, the two companies produce totally different and unique products.

SCX seems to specialize in Rally cars, producing the widest selection in that category by a long shot. And why not, in Europe the WRC is second only in popularity to Formula 1. Their rally car innovations include Xenon lights, 4-wheel drive, and specialty paint jobs like snow and mud effect. If you are a fan of the World Rally Championship series, you will definitely want some of these rally SCX slot cars in your collection.

In Spain, a popular club race category is rallying SCX slot cars with magnets removed! A very much real-world challenge. If you have ever seen real rally cars go slippin' and slidin' on some of the most challenging and picturesque racing circuits, you'll understand why removing the magnet is such a great idea.

SCX also makes a wide variety of great looking and performing Formula 1 cars too. The front wheels actually steer, giving SCX F1 slot cars an even more realistic look as they come whizzing by at 300 mph scale speed!! SCX slot cars are priced right too, at around $36 per car, you just can't go wrong! SCX also makes a collectible each year called the 'Vintage Series' based on early slot car designs as well as being a great limited edition model of a historic car!

As I mentioned, the cover art is really great on the SCX slot car boxes, capturing the very color and excitement of real racing!! But hey, who buys a slot car set for the artwork on the box anyway? Well the stuff inside is really great too. SCX features small track sets for the beginner as well as big sets like the Off Road set that give you everything you could possibly need. If you have kids who will be putting the track together, SCX is great because it is made of a flexible plastic that is durable and easy to put together.

(See our track accessories)

SCX has a great selection of track accessories, featuring pieces like the snow and mud sliding curves. In Spain, where this stuff comes from, most everyone has SCX slot car track. It's rough surface mimics lots of the less than smooth circuits that the real rally cars race on. SCX also features some very realistic figures, pit boxes and borders that are the most realistic borders of any slot car brand.

SCX analog track is high quality flexible vinyl with a high grip factor. This track can be great for kids because it is nearly indestructible and resistant to bumps and kicks from youngsters when they are playing. The track is narrower than the other manufacturers which allows you to set up more overall track length in a limited amount of space. The metal track rails have the strongest magnetic adhesion of any track in the market, and SCX track is compatible with old SCX or Scalextric "Classic" track that goes back over 40 years in case you have old track that you would like to continue using.

Track Characteristics:

*Complete Range (Asphalt, Snow, Dirt/Dunes)
* Straight sections with 9 different lengths/configurations
* Curve sections with 7 different radius/configurations
* Maximum grip vinyl surface and top grade stainless steel circuits (Rust-resistant and improved magnetic attraction)
* Quick assembly and resistant to the occasional bump from a child
* The original tracks are expandable to 8 concurrent lanes for maximum player participation

SCX accessories include lap counters, electronic timers, a trainer that allows you to race against the computer, chronometers, and various sliding curves that require controlled skidding, as well as trackside accessories such as authentic looking grandstands, figures, track elevation systems, safety barriers, and much more. In terms of track alternatives, SCX also offers Desert/Dirt effect track for off-road racing, as well as snow effect track for winter driving conditions. SCX original track is NOT compatible with their Digital System, see SCX Digital info to learn about their digital philosophy.
