Slot Mods' gorgeous new raceway is hand built in Detroit and cooler than any other piece of furniture in the world.


In general, getting into amateur racing eats up a lot of money. Between the car, the gear, the fees, and the travel, you're looking at a pretty hefty cash outlay, with almost zero chance of earning any of it back with your stellar driving skills.

Why not stay home and race slot cars instead?

Detroit-based Slot Mods has just introduced a new ready-to-race slot car circuit to get you started in the world of 1:32-scale racing—or rekindle the slot car enthusiasm you fostered as a kid. The new Super Sport Raceway, like all Slot Mods circuits, is completely hand-built, with a level of detail to satisfy even the most demanding gearhead's eye.

This eight-foot by four-foot tabletop raceway features hand-painted racing lines, skid marks, and PVC curbing. Built on a 13-ply, clear-coated birch wood base, it comes with two Trans Am-era cars, a 1969 Ford Mustang and a 1970 Chevy Camaro, and the racing-grade controllers to drive them. Optional birch legs turn this table-topper into a piece of furniture that's more fun than any coffee table we've ever seen.
