I'd have thought so - certainly the scx cars work on analogue Scalextric. Presumably you could add a Scalextric chip to the scx car (might involve some soldering unless the chips/sockets are compatible).

SCX digital and Scalextric UK Digital were different systems, but the analogue tracks and cars are interchangeable. SCX digital track is completely different, but the analogue track is same as scalextric classic track, so will fit the newer scalextric UK sport track with the adapter C8222.

The SCX cars would not be digital plug ready.

In theory you could fit a scalextric digital module BUT, I can think of 2 issues.

1/ Scalextric used to make two retro fit digital modules, but only the single seater version is now on their website C7005 and listed as out of stock.

2/ Scalextric UK stopped making 4wd cars, the original Quattro and RS200 were based on the Spanish versions and had belt driven front wheels. When Scalextric re made the RS200 it was two wheel drive only with the space between the slot guide and the motor where the digital plug could be fitted.

SCX went better than the belt drive and had shafts to both front and rear wheels, starting with their Celica, and think they were on their more recent Fiesta Rally Cars. So anything 4wd, shafts might get in the way of fitting the sensor and the module.

I'm not sure what the issues were with SCX, but they did stop producing for a while. They seem to be back, and the Lancia Delta isnt 4wd, so they may have dropped that feature with the Fiesta, so the Audi S1 Rallycross cars may not be 4wd, making retro fitting a digital module more likely. But could involve drilling the chassis for the sensor and soldering the module in.
