    Buying track inventory

    Hi everyone, I apologize if this is the wrong forum location for this post.

    I'm in the planning process of opening a small track in California. Can anyone help me find where to buy inventory at a wholesale price? I worked at a slot car track in the 90s so I'm pretty outdated on the commercial side of things.

    Thanks, Ryan

    There are several 'commercial slotcar distributors' easily found as well as the 'non-commercial' 1/32 and HO 'homeset' suppliers. I recommend contacting and registering with several as current inventory practice is more 'just in time' than 'we carry all items' of a product supplier.

    A very good option when starting a new raceway is to buy and (maybe) relocate a retiring raceway with their existing inventory, tracks, and experience.

    Get a Federal EIN and State sales tax registration and a 'legal business entity' to start the process.
