Green Huracan A Beautiful Machine

Huracans are naturally beautiful machines and their small slot car replicas are no different.  The details of this green Lamborghini shows exactly what makes these cars so special.

The V10 engine has been captured through the back window.  This is an engine that is said to produce 602hp.  Some serious power in a lightweight car.

It’s hard to believe that the real version of this car was introduced in 2014.  With a strong design this car still looks good in 2019.  You can learn more about the Lamborghini Huracan on Wikipedia.


Carrera Digital Racing App

I was excited to try the Carrera Racing app so I downloaded it to my phone.  After an hour of trying to figure out why nothing was happening I realized it needs Carrera 30369 App Connect Set to work.

Going to put that on my wish list for future purchases.

I’m a little bit disappointed because Scalextric Arc Pro Upgrade has this feature automatically built in.

Ford Capri Zakspeed Black

Ford Zakspeed Capri is one of my favorite cars to play with.  It came with my YoungTimer Showdown track.  If it didn’t come with the track I would have never purchased the car.

Balance of the car’s weight is one of the best. Driving the car around at a high speed is really easy. In addition it’s a good fit for all types of drivers.  Cars like this probably get overlooked; unless a person was part of the generation when it raced.

What’s interesting is Wikipedia mentions that the race car had very little in common with the Ford Capri for the public.

Reset Carrera Digital Car Code

To reset a Carrera 1/24 slot car is pretty easy to do.  Put the car on the track and press the CODE button the number of times that matches the controller.  So example if the controller you want to use is coded to two press the code button two times.  In addition the cars front lights will start to blink letting you know the programming has started.  Then you will need to press the front button on the controller.  The car is now connected to the controller.

I spent two weeks trying to figure out how to change the code of one of my cars.  The reset instructions aren’t that clear or easy to find.

Rear Stance Is What Makes A Car Beautiful

Rear stance is what makes each car different thus making it stand out from its competitors. A cars ability to keep the back tires planted on the track is attributed to its stance. Some have wide tires that tell everyone around that it means business and it’s ready to run.

Did you know the back of a car is a little wider than the front of a car? Most of the time it’s hard to tell but with sports cars it’s a little easier to see. It keeps the car from tipping over during turns.

Rear lights make a car instantly recognizable. It’s like looking into a person’s eyes to see their soul. A Corvette’s rear lights have a similar eye shape as a cat. In addition the lights are bright and can be seen from far back.

Mercedes from the back is a beautiful sign of luxury. It’s sleek, very stream lined and not so much fast looking but more of a high standard. This car tricks everyone because it truly is a racer.

Which Is Better? Corvette C7.R or Mercedes AMG GT3

Weekend Racing Be A Road Warrior

Saturdays are the perfect day for weekend racing with friends.  Right after morning chores of cutting the grass, cleaning the garage and washing the car. In addition any chores that were put off from last weekend.

A couple bags of chips, soda, pizza and it’s a perfect weekend racing day.  Roll out the new track design that has been kept secret.  Layout the event competitions for the day. Who can post the fastest lap? Who can lead for the most laps without causing a yellow flag? Introduce prizes for each winner of the events.  Prizes as simple as a bag of Skittles or a gift card left over from Christmas.

On the television is an episode of “Autobiography” for friends who are waiting to race.  Favorite episodes such as, “The Case of the Priceless Porsche” created by Motortrend.

Why play with slot car tracks?

Why play with slot car tracks you ask?  It’s a great way to relieve stressful situations, thus causing a person to forget their problem.  It creates the wonderful feeling of happiness and creates a little bit of the adrenaline feel.

Playing with tracks for a short amount of time is long enough.  It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to a relaxed mood.  The best thing to do is as soon as you get into the house play with your track.  It prepares you to forget so you can engage with everyone else in the home.
