    1. Slot Car Racer

      (3 Viewing)

      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.

Lee will answer your questions about Eurosport and flat track "scale" slot car racing here.

    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.
