Scalextric pin guides on new Scalextric track

The early Scalextric cars used a pin to run in the slot of the Scalextric track rather than a blade used later.  Several Scalextric guides were produced but the most popular was the round pin guide sometimes known as the Scalextric G3 round pin guide.

There are a few problems with the pin guides:
  • The pin can snap easily
  • The pin can wear out
Another problem is where you layout has a crossover for the slots as the pin can change lanes and go onto the other track

Another great insight from Scalextric Car Restorations
