The Slot Car Mancave - Tire Stack - Light Post for Scalextric Slot Car tracks (friction fit) with 3v LED light pole installed. (Unpainted)
Designed for 1:32 scale slot car tracks.
Each unit stands approximately 7.35 inches tall from the base of the unit to the top of the light fixture. We aimed for a selective compression ratio of 6:1 which is over 7 inches tall. This ratio is commonly used for 1:32 scale slot car tracks. Since most buildings and scenery is also 1:32 centric and so is our product.
We designed and manufacture our product so that it friction fits directly in to Scalextric track. Each unit includes (1)one 3 volt, 20mah, bright white SMD LED light pole, pre-threaded into (1) one Slot Car Mancave - Tire Stack - Light Post for Scalextric.
The hole down the center passes through to the bottom where we have designed a wire channel and guide to pass the wires underneath the track through the mount, which removes the potential of pinching the wires while fastening the clip to your track.
You will need some intermediate soldering skills for wiring up the lights as they will arrive pre-stripped and unterminated.
The lights also DO NOT come with a resistor, we were not supplied with any and haven't needed them by using the recommended light control product.
The lights DO NOT wire directly to your track power. We do not recommend powering these LED's with track power, and neither does Carrera, it will damage the CU and void your warranty.
We recommend powering our lights in parallel with a 3v 1A power supply for up to 50 lights, and wire and shrink wrap are available in the Track Lighting Products Section.
This product is 3D printed in white to simulate a wrapped stack of tires resting around a light pole. They can be painted to add red stripes using an acrylic paint pen, or wrapped with a sticker if you prefer. The tire stack is modeled after a 1:32 scale Scalextric tire for reference, so that it is to scale.
Enjoy lighting up your track today!
