Saw a picture of the 2020 Corvette yesterday in red with the engine in the back – I hope someone makes a slot car of it.
Le Mans race cars on Scalextric oval track racing down the front straight.
My father in-law stopped by yesterday and raced with me for about an hour
It was a good experience… it truly is an opportunity that gives people a chance to interact with each other
Looking forward to doing some racing tonight after work. It’s a hot day today so it’s a perfect day to be in the house.
It’s heating up in the midwest a good time to sit inside and do some racing. It’s 90 degrees in Kansas with humidity that makes it feel like 100.
These toys are aspirations of the cars that a person would one day want to own.
If you are looking for a track for a young child that they can keep for a while consider AFX. These tracks have a switch on the plug to reduce the current. This will let any age/skill control the car without it flying off the track.
These cars are just as fun as I remembered as a kid. It’s sad to know that there will be kids who will never experience the fun of slot cars.
I’ve been following HO cars a lot in June and they seem to be reasonably priced on the used side. Occasionally you still see some outrageous price but not as often as before.
If you live in a place where it rains a lot reconsider not putting your track on the floor in your basement. If the basement floods for any reason your track could be lost.
