    1. In this forum, I am purely a slot car racer. I only post about what I am doing with my slot car racing program. My purpose is to discuss slot car racing as a builder and as a racer. This is about tire wrenches, comm truer, soldering iron, acid flux, axle spacers, guides, cans, magnets, motor spacers....you name it, if it has to do with slot cars, I am on it. I am Slotcar Racer. This is a "blog" style forum - NO NEW THREADS - just one daily blog thread lead by Slotcar Racer.

    4. Multiple National and World Champion Paul Ciccarello answers questions about slot cars - from Womps & Flexi Cars, to Scale Eurosport & Group 7 Wing Cars. Since Paul C has become involved primarily with R/C racing now, this forum is closed to posting new questions - but still can serve as a reference for reading past Q & A.
