I’m an addict. Slot car addict that is.

I am fairly new to slots , but within the last 12months I’ve become addicted. I got a slot car on my back and I can’t get it off ! Have become addicted to HRW also. I guess no one else has that problem though. LOL

You have come to the right place to feed your addictions. :lol: :text-bravo:

I have my HO. habit under control but :angry-tappingfoot:
I can't say that about my 1/32 scale habit :violence-stickwhack: clearly it is running out of control :scared-eek:

I just imagine , the ovals could be pretty intense , with a 3 or 4 lane track , with all lanes going at the same time. I see how each lap could get faster and faster. Until , well , you know. A slot car goes air born. I have 2 racer sideways cars coming this week. One is supposed to be here tomorrow , and one wednesday. Cant wait !

Just take two crown gears and two pinions and see a slot car track in the morning. Works every time for me.
