Item Year Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1991 X Cars are so designated in the auto industry because of their use for experimental purposes. Normally stripped of unnecessary parts, lights, etc, they are fitted with components that are required for testing for long periods of time.
These four new Scalextric vehicles are based on the X car principle and have therefore been produced without lights, etc, and are ideal for endurance racing or timed laps.
1992 Stripped of unnecessary parts X Cars, or experimental cars are used to test the durability of car components for long periods of time. Be they engines, shock absorbers or tyres, these components are really pat through their paces, and in many cases tested to destruction.
Shown on these pages are a range of Scalextric 'X' Cars that can either be used for raring, time trials or just duration driving. Like their full size counterparts, they have no lighting equipment but this in no way impairs their handling characteristics.
1993 These colourful cars are intended for daytime circuit racing only, hence their lack of lights. This is in keeping with their full-size counterparts which are raced during the daylight hours and used by car component manufacturers for endurance/component testing. Racing teams also use this class of car to test modifications to designs, which if proved successful, can find their way into the normal family saloon.
All of these Scalex models are equipped with Magnatractlon which Improves their 'ground effect' when they negotiate comers at speed, however, this does not make them immune from leaving the track, so care must be exercised.
