What's the best handling Scalextric car? Had a Speed 12 but it was too heavy and kept ending up in the hallway.

Ahhhh don't bother with the crappy scalextric cars. Get yourself some Fly GB cars. They make lots of really funky cars, like Lola T70's, Chevron's, Porsche 917 etc, plus Panoz's, etc etc they are much faster than the Scalextric cars and stay on the track. I was amazed after I tried mine this weekend.....lap after lap, no scratching about on the floor just good racing.

seem to remember the MK1 Escort was always my favorite but the longer wheelbase 260Z was more predictable . The first 911Turbo was too wide , and the TR7/8 would spin for nothing . Does this help ?

I've got a Lister Storm which goes like a rocket and sticks to the road like glue + a Corvette C5R which also goes a bit faster but doesn't handle quite as well + two CLK GT1's which are not so good.

I am not fond of slot cars that stick like glue. I like a little bit of tail out action in the bends. I find the Scalextric Caterham/Lotus 7 cars have a nice balance between grip and slide - just like the real thing actually.

My Merc CLK DTM car is great - quick and handles ok whereas the Astra touring car is not so hot and has a tendency to cartwheel off at the corners

'Pologies for the necrobump, but am surprised that no one came with the suggestion that big Americans tend to track well.
