    Retro Chassis Components - Who's Making What?

    As a follow-up question to my previous thread about who's who in retro slot car chassis building...

    I would like to just gather a list of what is available for retro chassis building components.

    You guys know what I'm talking about.... guide tongues, motor brackets, pans, chassis kits... and I supposed other specialized stuff like retro front wheels/tires, retro rear wheels & tires, retro bodies, retro inline gears... basically: slot car components specifically made or suited for retro slot cars.


    I decided to make this a new separate thread, so it doesn't just get mixed in with any of the debate over who everyone thinks is best... etc.

    Since I am still a bit out of the loop, and had a hard time locating any info on this, I thought it might make a good thread... and hopefully serve as a resource for others who might also be looking for this sort of info.

    This should be pretty cut & dry, and not subject to opinions like the other thread... especially since I am NOT asking which company's components are "best", which ones are "hot", or even which ones you recommend, use, or like.

    I'm just looking for a list of what's available....

    Retro Slot Car Chassis Components:
    Manufacturer & brief description of the parts offered.


    Okie dokie?

    This should be easy-peasy, right?

    Take it away.... Slot Car Talk gang!

    A Great Idea Paul. There are alot of smaller local parts producers. It would be great to see them all in one place !!!

    Wow.... Is that crickets I hear???

    Maybe everyone is scared that if they plug something they'll get deleted???

    I ASKED for a list of suppliers - here's your chance gang. Plug away!

    C'mon - I know you retro types are out there... quit hiding.

    This could be a very helpful list.... or is it secret??? LOL

    R-Geo Products makes a broad spectrum of pieces and parts for retro, plus several kits. Many other slot related items too. It's not all listed on the website but much of it is, and my R-Geo Slots FB has many pictures of things available. Plus check my Forum here on OWH for newer offerings. ERI and Eagle Distributing both carry some of my items.

    Some items are special order.......
