I see someone likes their slot-cars
First video was cool, they actually looked realistic when sliding. But slot cars?
The White Lake Formula 1 Ring is a slot car track, in a basement, built by someone with a lot of spare time. But check your bias at pit row, because this scale track is better than most real ones.
And a video of it:
wow that looks pretty cool

In our aim to cover the maximun aspects of motorsports, we decided to open new forums for Slot Cars so our members can discuss about it.
Hope you enjoy and contribute
I'm a former slot car racer, haven't touched gone near it in months... I've got a huge collection F1 Cars, LMP's you name it.. I've even got a campervan
There is a slot-car booth at the closest shopping center where i live. I tried it a few times, but there is no need for releasing the throttle in the corners, just pressing the button constantly. That makes it very boring, just some eye-fest watching four cars going around. Of course a proper slot car system would not be like that afaik.
Other than that, no professional slot car places i know. So i will pick the 3rd option on the poll.
I've got a collection as well, I think it might be a good idea to open a post were we can share them?
Indeed, proper racing means no magnets, engine braking and a lot of skill to be fast.
Like in simracing I guess there is arcade and simulation mode
I will try to find all the videos I made about this in the past.
I think my AFX set is still sitting in my parents storage locker. I should go and see if it's still there one of these days.
I never raced but played a lot as a kid. There is a place called Apollo Hobbies in town here that holds meets for racing events.
Sounds like a cracking idea
Can you remember what your first slot car was?? Mine was in a set it was a black Porsche 911 and was dead slow until opened it up and put a new motor in which was about 3 times more powerful
OMG! This is amazing.
I love the tracks with custom slots and uneven lane distribution, I think they are more challenging and you have to consider also the other cars all the time.
LOL Resi, this videos are from a club 28 Km from my hometown.
World is small
Wow, that's all I can say really. Looks amazing as well
Please show us your slot car collection in this thread
