  2. 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.

    More...


    And a video of it:

    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 :)

    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 :D

    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.
