      1/24 Scale Slot Car Drag Racing

      I recently got into this and it's just as addicting as real drag racing. Just on a smaller scale. They have points series', bracket races, Heads Up formats and BIG money races! Fun as Hell!

      Does anybody else run these? I want to "tweak" the motor and need some advice,LOL!

      I found a company that supplies Styrene and Lexan Bug Bodies, Pretty Cool, I actually own two Styrene body cars.

      Theres a bunch of guys on one of the local racing forums that are way to into the slot car thing lol. You can get pretty much any kind of car you want. Most of them are all domestic bodys and other race cars but either way they are pretty cool for sure.

      I hope the scaled down version doesn't break as much as a full size.

      Yeah, they do make Front wheel drives. The contacts are on the wheelie bars to pull power from the track. Pretty cool!

      Those pics above are cool BTW!

      Check out this vid I found. It's got some cool Slow Motion and there is a VW bus at the 2:32 mark that smokes a few cars
