Most people have never heard of slot cars. Especially on the 1/24th scale or the 1/32nd scale. These are just a larger version of a pretty common electronic toy like the image on the right. I got into the hobby around 1992 when my middle school shop class was, slot cars. Noteably the larger 1/32 and 1/24 scale. I fell in love and I'm still racing with my own children.
I won't bore you with the history or how these work, so if you want to know more, visit the Wiki page.
Here are some of my current cars. These are 1/24 scale with winged bodies. These cars absolutely fly. They only weigh a few grams and have insane motors in them. They literally scream around around a slotted track. I know most people would be thinking, "whaa, they go around a track in slots. what is so fun about that?" Trust me, go to a local slot car track and rent a car for 15 min. It's dirt cheap. You will be hooked. People around the world spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars in this hobby. I have 2 boys and they LOVE it! More on this topic later..
So here are some pics of my cars. I do have several hundred bucks in my collection but, I didn't spend that much all at once.
Over time, I will post more pics and details of this forgotten hobby. So come back!
