Instructions on how to send your Scalextric car to Scalextric Car Restorations

Slot car restorations

We can restore your car for you. Rates vary depending on how much work is required and what standard is desired. Please contact us for full details of this service and note that a final quotation cannot be given until the car is inspected at our restoration facility.

To have your car serviced or repaired please contact us first and give the identity of your car(s) and the nature of the fault(s) as not all parts are available and not all faults can be repaired.

Slot car repairs and servicing

If your car has a fault or simply needs a good service then contact us for details of how we can help you. Note that a final quotation cannot be given until the car is inspected at our repair and service facility. We also put right badly fitted Scalextric digital chip installations and replace faulty Scalextric digital chips.

Magnetising ferrous block magnets

To maintain a healthy magnetic field strength the ferrous block magnet must be magnetised with the motor assembled. We have the equipment to do this. Completely "dead" magnets can be brought back to life and the magnetic field can even be reversed in just a second. Reversing the magnetic field will change the direction of rotation of the motor. We'll need the complete assembled motor or complete car to magnetise the motor magnet.

Only the ferrous block magnets as fitted to the RX motor, Powersledge motor and the Formula Junior motor can be magnetised in this way.

Slot car Digital conversions

Converting some of the older Scalextric cars to operate on the modern Scalextric Digital system can be very difficult as there is often no space to fit the Digital Chip. In addition to fitting the chip there may be other upgrades required in order for your car to operate at its best on the modern Digital track. These could include; motor upgrade, better grip tyres and magnatraction magnet.


We pride ourselves on fitting Digital chips so that there's no visible evidence; no cut bodywork, no visible wires and the body and chassis fit together perfectly.

Digital conversion of Scalextric Police cars requires specialist electronic knowledge if the lights and siren are to work afterwards. Take a look at the C2808 Range Rover Police car below to see how we do it.
