AFX Giant Raceway slot car set
This is It, the "King Kong” of Slot Car Tracks! With more track pieces, more track length, more levels, more banks, criss-cross tracks, squeeze tracks, sheesh! There just isn't another track like it.
The Giant squeezes an amazing amount of action into only 4' x 8' of floor space. And the Giant is the only HO scale set to come with a digital Lap Counter. That’s right, only AFX has a full blown electronic Lap Counter and it comes in the Giant set. Not only does it count up to 99 laps, but it starts your race with a 5 second count down. But don’t jump the start or you get penalized 1 lap!
Super easy to set up and operate, the AFX digital Lap Counter brings a whole new level of fun to slot racing. And only AFX has it! And now, like all new AFX sets, the Giant incorporates the Mega G+ Race System: the easiest slot car system to learn and the easiest to drive at the limit. More fun guaranteed!
Of course the Giant was also the first AFX set to get the Tri-Power Pack and what a hit! Its three power levels allow new drivers to learn the right way: one step at a time. That way you can get the hang of racing without getting frustrated. And setting the level is as simple as flipping the switch on the side of the Pack. The levels work like this:
- Beginner: Cars will stay on the track through about 95% to 100%* of the turns even at full throttle
- Intermediate: Cars will stay on the track through about 60% to 70%* of the turns at full throttle
- Expert: You’re on your own!
* Depending on track layout
With Tri-Power Pack and Mega G+ parents can race with their younger children without the child crashing all the time. And what about those birthday parties when you have a lot of children with different skill levels? The Tri-Power Pack lets them race and race and all the players get to enjoy themselves.

What is the Mega G+ Race System?
It is a Slot Car system that delivers the perfect balance of grip and speed. The result is a slot car set that is easier to learn and easier to drive at the limit so you have more fun fast and keep having fun longer.
We achieved this by redesigning our famous Mega-G chassis, designing a new power unit and precisely mating it to our upgraded AFX120 controller and our exclusive Tri-Power Pack. With decades of slot car innovation and over a year of experimentation behind it, we believe the Mega G+ Race System is the best out of the box slot car system you can buy.
