Slot cars give a freedom from all the worries of the world. You can come home and race on a track where you set the rules. There’s no one telling you what to do. It’s you and the car trying to master the track. Can you beat your old race time without losing control? Can you go just a little faster in turn one than you did the day before? If you crash there is very little cost or risk.
Racing can be the true peace of mind you’ve been looking for.
