  1. Slot Car General Discussion
    I have been racing for the last year on a Tyco track that is mostly scratch built; it started as a “Ferrari Faceoff” set which I added to multiple times. One of the things I added was a terminal from my original childhood Turbo Boost 300 set; this was a gimmick that amounts to a rheostat with...

    Aurora/Tomy/AFX Catalogs. I have been trying to collect any catalogs I could to make them available on my museum website and hopefully preserve them.

    Cleaned out a family garage this weekend and picked up my uncle's slot car collection. He was one of the original designers for Aurora when they were in the business. I've got about a hundred cars and mile of track, including a lot of stuff still new in the box. Based on some internet reading...
