Set Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1990 The inclusion of the special Rev- Start track section adds a touch of magic to this extended figure 8 type circuit. Place the cars on the Rev-Start grid with their rear wheels resting on the built-in rollers. As you operate the throttle the wheels spin but the cars remain stationary. When you move the Start Button, the rollers drop down and the cars speed off exactly together.
Rev-Start has two small smoke generators which give off realistic ‘exhaust’ smoke while the cars are revving up.
Mains Transformer, harmless smoke oil and filler included.
1991 The extended figure 8 track circuit runs to almost 20ft giving the cars a real chance to show their paces. A particular feature is the ‘Rev-Start’ track section. The cars are placed on this with their rear wheels resting on the built-in sets of rollers. Drivers can rev-up here, ‘warming their engines', while the cars remain stationary. Wisps of 'exhaust smoke' are given off from small smoke generators situated within the track. When everyone is ready, the Start Button is operated, the rollers drop down and both cars set off exactly together - the perfect start.
Space required 9’3” x 3’ x 3” 282 x 100 cms.
Track running length 19’ 11” 608 cms.
1992 Mains Power Pack included.
The single seater racing cars with the wide tyred wheels are on the start line, the hand throttles are gripped tighter and the triggers are squeezed. Both cars begin to rev-up. The wheels spin and smoke drifts up from underneath the Rev Start track as the tension grows. Maximum revs are achieved, the ‘drivers’ exchange a sideways glance as the Rev Start rollers are dropped. The wheels get a grip and both cars shoot off heading for the banked curves on the end of the long straight.
Pole Position with the unique Rev Start track adds atmosphere and drama to Scalextric racing.
1993 Contents: Mains Power Pack included.
They are under starters orders. The engines are revving and the wheels are spinning. Smoke drifts up from underneath the Rev-Start track. The drivers are ready. A finger pulls back the roller release, the spinning wheels grip the unyielding track and the cars race towards the first bend.
Sturdily built, the two cars in this set are evenly matched and capable of providing many hours of racing pleasure. The atmospheric Rev-Start track gives real excitement and tension, together with an even start!
Crash barriers strategically placed on the layout add colour as well as assisting to keep the cars on the track as the race hots up.
