Slot Resurrection

Postby Xraycer71 » Tue Sep 05, 2017 11:33 am

Hi, everybody. I've been away from the slot car scene for about 9(?) years, and slowly trying to find my way back into the hobby. I was a very active member here about 10 years ago, and did regular races with a bunch of guys in the southern New Hampshire area.

It started a few months ago when I had decided to tidy up, the ever cluttering basement, just a bit. My 10yo son asked if he could try the Artin slot track, that has become a dumping ground for a lot of stuff. So, I figured that would be a good place to start as any. Once the track was unburied, I'd decided it was enough tidying for the night and wanted to run the track. So, came the arduous task of cleaning off the years of accumulated dust and debris. Once that was done, I powered it up, plugged in my Slot.it controller and grabbed a Fly Marcos off the display case. It was a lot of fun, just like I remembered, but it was getting really late and I called it a night. Phase 1: completed

Yes sir, I remember. Always great to see this happen, especially with the kids involved.

And this was one of those Artin tracks that proved how great it really was!

Welcome back, great to see the track run again. Artin was always good that way.
Glad the younger set is interested!

Your Son will Enjoy slot car racing like you did in your younger years. :idea:
You built a great looking track back then, now you both can have fun with it. :auto-driving: :auto-checkeredflag: :auto-driving:
Just think he'll go to school and tell all his friends about Dad old track and maybe he'll start
a whole new group of kids in the hobby. :banana-dance: :banana-dance: :banana-dance:

Having Fun is what it's all about. :text-bravo:

Welcome back Dinh!!

Now that you're back, remember to look for packages behind the car before backing out of the garage... 8-)

Haha Fortunately that mailman has since retired. The new guy so far has been very good....fingers crossed.

Thanks for the re-welcoming, Dickie!
