The hand-held controllers also allow precision breaking allowing great curve handling and pass performance.

Reviews state that the Scalextric Digital Overdrive set does require proper handling with the throttle and break so it is not recommended for children under eight years old. Without proper control and patience while racing as younger children tend to show, the cars may fly off the track as it passes a curve.
