Category Details: Scalextric sets from all eras.
Year: 1982
Catalogue Number: C.662
Year Information: Every inch of this 17-feet track configuration is packed with tension and excitement as the Stickshifter' and Fenderbender' Stox cars are put through their paces. Including the right angle crossing, chicane curve, track borders, and jump obstacles this set establishes a totally new form of Scalextric competition - all or nothing. The objective "to stay on the track as long as possible while attempting at the same time to eliminate ones opponent!' is not as easy as it sounds. Each driver has the same opportunities, neither has an advantage over the other. Everything hinges on the driver's own skills and ability to handle his car.
Both the Stickshifter' and Fenderbender' Stox cars are supplied with alternative sets of exhaust pipes and number boards and both have bonnets which can come off as the cars collide. The unique turnaround spin mechanism allows each car to travel around the track in both directions, in effect doubling the circuit length as the features of a circuit change completely when a car travels around it in the opposite direction.
The formidable chicane curves together with the track borders require real skill and an ability to make instant decisions. When opponents are racing towards each other will they keep going and risk collision or will one of them panic and turn at the last moment? The right angle crossing also offers a unique opportunity to catch one's opponent unawares - by hiding in the Aeromotors hanger and racing out just as one's opponent is passing over the crossing, spinning his car around or even sending him crashing out of control. Jump obstacles to provide additional hazards requiring care and delicate throttle control in order to negotiate them safely. The Super Stox set uses standard Scalextric hand throttles and other Scalextric cars can be used on the track without the purchase of additional components. These unique features combined together make the Super Stox set one of the most exciting sets in the Scalextric range.
