Scotchbrite is a plastic scouring pad.  The one I used was similar to scotchbrite but was supplied by a specialist Scalextric retailer.

I'll try your suggestions and carefully clean the track and then assemble as suggested.

I have been given a very old Scalextric set for my 2 grandsons.

The set doesn't work properly - the power doesn't reach the cars all the time; the cars only travel a very short distance, if at all;

* I have cleaned the track with scotch-brite and ensured that the track pieces are correctly connected;

* I have bought 2 new cars;

* I have bought 2 new controllers.
Can anyone recommend a remedy?  I am running out of excuses to tell the grandsons (ages 3 &6)
Grateful for any solutions,
