Policar Slot Cars
As the manufacturer Slot.it announced at the last toy fair in Nuremberg, it was going to launch the first circuit of the well-known Italian brand Policar of 1/32 scale slot circuits on the market, which would be the equivalent here to our famous Scalextric.
Well, your distributor in Spain already announces it to us at slot stores as available to buy, so we will soon receive the basic one, which comes without cars, and we want to see how it comes before marketing it on a larger scale
This Circuit initiation Policar Slot is called T002Z and has a travel of 6.5 meters and assembled occupies dimensions of 2.65 x 1.75 meters

Policar Slot Tracks
It is important to know that these Policar tracks are compatible with those of Ninco and also with those of old Polistil (the equivalent of Scalextric in Italy), by means of adaptation track.
They are designed to guarantee a excellent gripeven without magnet. This is why the plastic is hard and firm, with a specially textured surface.
The distance between rails is 9 cm. And the depth of the rail is 8.5 mm, manufactured in rust resistant steel . The width of the slopes is 17.9 cm.
They can be placed 6 cm extra wide edges, to which can be attached fences triple band.
They are expandable up to 8 lanes and have a digital system. They come with Multiple side clip systeme that keeps any circuit design aligned and flat.
Special geometry of the track system:
With the new tracks Policar, any constant radius 90 ° curve can always be replaced with any other constant radius 9 ° curve – regardless of whether you are using R1, R2, R3 or R4! Bottom line: all the assembly parts in the curve above are interchangeable. So if for example you get tired of your design, you can easily replace a 9 ° R1 curve with a 90 ° R3 without problems.
This is better understood with the following image
As soon as we test it, we will make a quality and content assessment of the basic set. We’ll bind it to our tracks Ninco and see how! 🙂
