This guide blade upgrade kit is a direct replacement for the
original Scalextric G5 guide pin fitted to the cars listed below.
The kit comes complete with:
Guide blade G30
- Braids (fitted)
- Braid pins (fitted)
- Wires (fitted)
- Motor electrical tags (fitted)
- Guide adaptor bracket (moulded with Carbon Fibre reinforced
The original guide pin fitted to these Scalextric cars cannot readily
be used on modern track with crossovers, points etc. as the pin
is small and the car can change lanes when traversing a crossover!
This kit uses a later Scalextric guide blade which is needed to
maintain the right direction of travel on modern track obstacles.
No soldering is required as this kit simply fits into place with
only basic tools. The original car body and motor are used with
no changes at all, which means the original guide pin can be refitted
at any time to return your Scalextric car to it's original condition.
With this kit you can enjoy your original Scalextric Austin Healey
3000 and Scalextric Mercedes 190SL models on later Scalextric Classic
track and even new Scalextric Sport track layouts.
The original guide pin is sometimes referred to as G5.
