Lap Run Video Carrera Camaro

Lap Run Camaro

Lap speed is a little tuff to achieve with the Camaro.  This car isn’t one that you will want to take to racing events.  It’s heavy  which makes speed pickup slow compared to other cars.

It’s a little bulky and stands higher than most cars off the track.  With the stance being a little higher the feel at cornering speed doesn’t feel too great; hence a feel it will fly off the track.

GT Contest Good Starter Track

GT Corvette Starter

GT Contest is a good starter track for any level of slot car enthusiast. Track layout is an oval or figure eight. The two cars are very hard plastic thus not easy to break.

The track is compatible with any Carrera 1:43 slot car. Track pieces easily fit together and disconnect quickly. There’s no difficult locking mechanisms on the tracks.

I run these cars on a Scalextric digital track in analog mode. Since the cars are small it’s easy to get them up to speed quickly.

Magnets are strong in each car making it hard for them to lose traction.

Formula Extreme Speed

Formula Carrera Red Bull

Formula 1/43 slot cars handle very strong.  Car speed is pretty fast especially on big tracks.  Running the car on a 1/32 size track allows for full speeds.  Arrow dynamics keep the car glued to the track without issues.  Zipping by so fast the car can hardly be seen.

This type of car can be found for about $15, which is a good entry level car.  There’s little maintenance and is very resistant.  This car is good for kids but is just as fun for adults.

Lamborghini Blue Ebay Find

Lamborghini Blue Ebay Find

This Lamborghini is a good find on Ebay. It took some patience because the auction was six days. I passed on a couple of auctions before on this same type of car. Patience is the key to truly finding the best deals. The auction end price for this car was $13.49 plus $4.70 for shipping.

During shipping the left mirror was disconnected. I was able to attach it back by pressing it in. Besides that, there is nothing wrong with this car.

Mercedes 1/43 Silver Carrera

Carrera Mercedes AMG 1/43 Silver

Small Carrera cars are a good way to get into the hobby. The first track I started with was a track from Hobby Lobby that I used the 40% coupon on. If you aren’t familiar with the Hobby Lobby coupons download the app for the store on your smart phone. Once you have the app look for the coupons section. You can only use the coupon on one item.

This Mercedes I got on EBay brand new for around $15. The Hobby Lobby stores in my area don’t carry these cars individually anymore. It was a brand new car sold by user power_hobby.

I run these 1/43 cars on my Scalextric 1/32 track. Due to their small size I can get these cars up to full speed on the straights. To get them to work I had to shave the both sides of the guide so it would fit in the slot.

488 Ferrari Carrera Deal

Ferrari 488 Carrera

This 488 Ferrari was won on Ebay for $25; I love when I find good deals.  The Ferrari had a broken wing and missing both mirrors.  The auctions like this one are where you’ll find really good cars

The first thing I did after receiving the 488 Ferrari was put the wing back on.  I used Super Gel Gorilla glue, it dries strong and is clear.  I let it dry for about 2 hours before playing with the car.  You’ll see from the pictures you can’t tell where it was glued on.

Gorilla Glue

The car drives like a brand new car, I’m assuming the first owner rarely played with the car.  The stickers show no wear and the paint is very good.  There were no modifications done to the car at all.

LaFerrari Carrera Slot Car A Beautiful Exotic

Carrera LaFerrari 1/32

LaFerrari is one slot car that I’ve waited for quite sometime to get.  These cars tend to go for around $50, but I was able to get one for $25.  Carrera did a really good job on these cars.  The detail with the mirrors and vents is amazing.

LaFerrari Size

The size of the car is 1/32 but it feels a little bigger.  It seems like it’s a little heavier than a Scalextric car.  This is truly the first new Carrera 1/32 car I’ve purchased and I’m very proud of it.

The smoothness of this car is amazing as it goes around the track.  I’m assuming this has a lot to do with the placement of the magnet in the chassis.  It seems to stick to the track very well even as the car gets up to top speed.

It’s a quiet car, unlike the rough sound from older slot cars.  The engine sound is kind of a unique winding noise that matches the cool look of the car.  There’s no lights on either the front or the back but there is a driver.
