What is Digital Plug Ready (DPR)?
- Nearly all of our new cars are made with a standard feature called Digital Plug Ready (DPR) - a plug accessed via the floor pan of the car.
- DPR cars have the ability to be easily converted for use on Scalextric Digital circuits by fitting a Digital chip.
- DPR cars will not work on a Scalextric Digital circuit without first being fitted with a Digital chip such C8515, C8516 or a retro-fit chip.
The operation of fitting a digital chip takes no longer than 60 seconds and requires only a small flat head screwdriver - DONE IN 60 SECONDS!
This feature means that you can purchase any car from the Scalextric range knowing that it will work perfectly well as a standard car, but can be upgraded to Digital in the future.
Well that's really rubbish.... There is no mention of this when I buy the cars (well before Christmas). Opened on Christmas day by the kids. Scalextric set up today and the cars don't work. Just really awful from whoever markets your products not to eliminate this problem to avoid customer disappointment. Personally am sick of all this digitisation of even Scalextric cars. It is unnecessary. I want to be able to put the car on the track and race it, but you seem to want to over complicate and ruin an otherwise great product.....
