How to Pimp Your Scalextric Cars

Racing Scalextric cars is growing in popularity as each new generation discovers the fun and excitement of slot car racing. Scalextric enthusiasts soon start to look for ways to enhance the performance of their cars and systems. Here are just a handful of techniques that will help your cars to literally fly around the track.

The principles that apply to slot cars are the same as those that apply to real life F1 racing cars and rally cars. To increase speed you might install a more powerful engine, lower the weight and fit better tires. Optimising Scalextric cars can be very educational.

Let's first think about the Scalextric cars engine. Your Scalextrci cars don't use petrol engines, they use little electric motors that are very easy to swap out. You can find some remarkable, high perfornance Scalextric motors that provide higher revs and higher speeds. Changing the motor will immediately give you a significant improvement in speed.

Increased speed can make it difficult to stay on the track on a bend. You can help your car to stay on the track with an appropriately positioned magnet. Many modern cars come fitted with these magnets but you might like to upgrade to a stronger magnet to help your car stick to the track.

The next improvement you might like to make to your car is new tires. Better grip with the track will help your car to fly around the track.

So you now have a fully pimped out Scalextric car ready to break records. The next thing to consider is the track itself? There are a few simple enhancement that can make all the difference. I recommend that you try this on just one of your two tracks so that you can make a comparison.

Start by cleaning the Scalextric track. Dirt, dust and moisture on the track will inevitably result in low friction and maybe even some wheel spin. The next thing to do is thoroughly clean your slot. The slots in your track will inevitabley gather dust and dirt. Inevitably this will slow your car down. Keeping your slots free of dust and debris will make major improvements to your system.

Don't overlook your electrical system as ensuring all your connections are as good as they can be will bring performance enhancements. Clean all the electrical connectors and make certain taht your car contacts are as clean as possible.

Your car should now be flying around the track. Now you're ready to find a worthy opponent for a race.

"Charlie Kane" song?

Can anyone provide me with the lyrics to the "Charlie Kane" song from Citizen Kane (NOT "The Union Forever", by the White Stripes)? It's easy to hear how the song begins:

There is a man. A certain man.
And for the poor you can be sure that he'll do all he can.
Who is this one? This favorite son?
Who by his actions has the traction magnets on the run.
Who likes to smoke. Enjoys a joke.
And wouldn't get a bit upset if he were really broke.
With wealth and fame, he's still the same.
I'll bet you five you're not alive if you don't know his name.
What is his name? It's Charlie Kane. It's Mr. Kane.
He doesn't like the Mister. He likes good old Charlie Kane.

However, during the movie the song continues in the background while dialogue carries on between the characters and I can't hear the rest of the words aside from the occasional chorus of "Good old Charlie Kane." Something about buying food and drinks, and a Miss that's made to kiss? Any help is much appreciated!

Here you go..

There is a man - a certain man
And for the poor you may be sure
That he'll do all he can!
Who is this one?
This fav'rite son?
Just by his action
Has the Traction magnates on the run?
Who loves to smoke?
Enjoys a joke?
Who wouldn't get a bit upset
If he were really broke?
With wealth and fame
He's still the same
I'll bet you five you're not alive
If you don't know his name
What is his name?...
It's Charlie Kane.
CROWD: It's Mister Kane.
He doesn't like that Mister
He likes good old Charlie Kane.

Who says a miss was made to kiss?
And when he meets one always tries to do exactly this?
Who buys the food?
Who buys the drinks?
Who thinks that dough was made to spend?
And acts the way he thinks?
Now is it Joe?
CROWD: No, no, no, no!
I'll bet you ten you aren't men
If you don't really know!
