When it comes to getting started in our hobby, we have quite a few choices to make. Now it appears we have one more system to choose from with the arrival of the JIADA Toys slot car system. This system is almost identical to SCX/Scalextric Classic systems For some people just beginning, price is a major factor. This set is quite large and packs plenty of accessories all for a budget price of $150.00.
The bridge unit has 2 different supports One is tall, and the other short so make sure you place them properly with the short on the outside edges of the bridge and the tall on the inside. Assembly of the bridges prior to track placement is also much easier.It comes fully bordered on the outside. There is an outside border and guardrail for every curve. When you look at the price of borders on some sets, this little surprise is definitely worth mentioning. Borders are important as they allow the cars to slide or drift in the corners.Flipping the cars over, the chassis looks identical to a SCX chassis. The motor is different though, like it's a long can Mabuchi. The motor is completely enclosed, unlike the SCX motors which have the brushes out in the open.
The Jiada cars also have the same adjustable magnet arrangement that the SCX cars have. Taking the cars apart is the same as taking SCX cars apart. Undo 3 screws, and the bottom part of the chassis comes off, as does the body, leaving you with the "central" part of the chassis that holds the motor and drive-train.
