Pro Chassis Ready
Pro Chassis Ready (PCR), the recently launched concept from Scalextric that allows racers to install and run high-performance parts from Slot.it, is the focus of this great little video on YouTube!
With Scalextric’s PCR underpan chassis, slot racers can quickly and easily install a variety of new motors as well as uprated gears and wheels to create their own ultimate Scalextric car.
I had the pleasure of trying one of these out at the UK Slot Festival earlier this year and had a great time racing around a wood-routed circuit with other PCR BMW Z4s that had been set up by Pendle Slot Racing.
Much smoother, faster and forgiving to drive than I had been expecting from a Scalextric car, the rapidly-expanding PCR range is likely to prove very popular with home racers, club racers and slot-tinkerers of all ages – the question will be, what will the cost of all the ‘donor car’ and all the extra performance parts amount to?
