I'd love a GT40 car to race! I don't know of any track up here though.

I think all but one of the tracks in Atlanta are closed now, a few years ago we had 5 or 6 really nice ones.
What do you do with a dozen slot cars and parts when there are no tracks????

I actually sent away to Parma for a brochure about building tracks. Looks pretty basic if you can run a router and make each panel flush with the next one. But, think about how big of a space you need for a track, even a small track is 20x20.

Oh sure! Now you guys get interested in slots! I have a 56' layout on a ping pong table that is a blast.

Stuart, if you have cars to get rid of let me know. I'm always looking for some more stuff. Also, it is not necessary to use a router. There are several companies that offer prefab tracks if you want to spend the money. Then of course there is the poor mans track that "snaps" together. It is great track though. Cars do all kinds of cool tricks on these tracks.

Now is the best time to get into 1/32 scale racing. The technology is unbelievable. These things are like real cars. You can tune and tweak to get better performance. Not to mention there are some neat Mustangs out there. Of course the GT40 is a slick machine as well. I have a couple of them. Talk about fast!!!

So, who wants to race?!

I just found out about a new track, it is in the same shopping center where they have a cruise in, I think the first Saturday of every month I'll be dusting off my slotcars.
1/24 scale 8 lane King track, I can hardly wait. My slotcars were last run in 1993.

I just got into slotcar drag racing (1/24) last year and all I can say is what a blast. There are all different classes but I only get into the hardbody classes due to the detail that you can build your cars with. A hardbody is basically just a model body either Revell etc. or custom resin. If you want to see some spectacular hardbodies check out www.richsslotcars.com they are unbelievable.
