    This should be fun... Going through my old spare parts, I came across 2 vintage bumpers. The first (front bumper / grill) I was able to identify by searching through my copy of "The Complete Color Guide To Aurora H.O. Slot Cars". It belongs to an Aurora AFX Ford Escort. I don't recall ever...
  2. HO scale
    I am so excited 😁 by this discovery, I need to cross* post it here as well. By installing o-rings on the upper side of the pickups, this limits the travel and the car actually now drives through the corners. By using thinner o-rings or sanding the o-rings, it's adjustable! *I've noticed...

    Hi guys! I am brand new on here, and pretty dang new to slot cars. Quick back story is my parents just found, and gave me, the full set up from when I was younger in the early 90s. Nothing seemed to work the day I got it, so I started shopping. It has about 30ft of track (visually great...
  4. HO scale
    Hello again, I’m planning a track for my basement, fixed to a table with approximately 3,15m x 1,00m. It’s mainly for MT and faster. As I want to race with my soon-to-be six year old son, his friends and their dads it’s supposed to be rather easy to handle on low voltages. The bridge will...

    For those of us who run Tyco US-1 Trucks, the 'Achilles Heel' of the range are the gears. Not the quality brown ones the sets first appeared with, but the cheaper white nylon ones the range switched to soon after introduction. These have a tendency to crack, which can at best result in a...

    Hi. I'm brand new to HO slot cars, in a way. My parents found the track I has as a kid. It has been in an attic for ~20 years. I am surprised by the quality of plastic used for the track. I have all the pieces to the track, but the picture below shows I'm missing 1. It was fun piecing it...
  7. Vintage & Collector's corner
    Dear All, My interest in slot cars is mainly to use them as roadways. I started off with Minic, which I exhibited with Tri-ang Railways for manny years. Along the way I got into Playcraft Highways, then Aurora, Faller AMS, Bauer, Tyco US-1 Trucking and finally my wife bought me a Life-Like High...
