    There is a figure 8 for sale now. I looked at it and can see the attraction for the reckless youth.

    I would love to hear about racing on the Sovereign. I haven't actually heard anyone talking about racing on that track.

    I'm not trying to match it up in the real world. This is purely a blog conversation born in an observation that folks with certain cars running at different speeds like certain tracks. Wing cars have...

    Noooo.... I wouldn't even try to run all those classes. No one has pockets deep enough for that. I am just interested in matching cars and tracks because it is frequently stated that "this or the...
  5. Matching the track to the car or car to the track

    I frequently read comments about what track works best for a particular car. For example, someone I just read was lamenting that running F1 on a hillclimb was just a wreck fest. They were looking for...

    I actually would have imagined there would be a small but dedicated group of ISRA USA guys. It's a very unique niche but seems like one that would be fun. Competing internationally seems kinda...

    Isra usa

    Maybe it's me....but I can't find anything current on the USA rules and such. Is that not as active as it once was? I was just looking to do some reading out of a curiosity. So there's no crisis.

    Do your chassis come with wheels and axles? So all I need to do is snap on a body and motor?

    Definitions and Acronyms

    I wish we had a list of words, slot car lingo for the newly initiated. I came to this hobby late and not as a racer. I was corrected in my first week from using the term engine instead of motor....

    I realize a few years have passed but is there no SEFCRRA anymore? Are there any more FCR races given the situation at PARMA? Is this a lost class?

    Where Did the Tracks Go

    I find that in the midst of reading this post or that post I almost always gravitate towards trying to see where tracks go, their history, builder, any claim to fame and why some are tossed aside or...

    Where did this track go? Want to find one actually. They used to be plentiful but seem scarce right now.

    Yeah....I had sorta decided on giving walking room down both sides.

    I was drooling over it. I am purchasing a track now so I'm tied up but a King is next on the agenda. No swoopy king, I like the one pictured here.

    I'm about to set up shop and bring my drag track out of storage. Looking to bring more tracks into the space so I'm considering pushing the drag against the wall like I see in many other places. I'm...

    There's a place for the tri oval and oval....wouldn't argue there's not. I guess I just don't know if circle racing would hold my attention or present me with enough of a variety of challenge in the...

    I had a tri oval and it was ok but I don't see the long term allurement of an oval. As a secondary track just to break up the races.....sure. But as a primary or solo track, I have trouble with that...

    I hate to admit it but you're right. I have a dragstrip and it will be given a prominent place when I reopen, hopefully very soon. It does change the atmosphere of the slot car business but.... it...

    I think that is because there are so few Engleman out there that it doesn't come to mind whereas there are plenty of Kings and that is what first pops up in your head.
