Curious before I cut anything, what would the longest 1/32 car measure?
Wanting to make separators for my pit box sticking the cars straight in…

Not sure of actual length, but I saw a Scalextric NASCAR and it looked incredibly long. Definitely longer than any other 1/32 slot car I have seen.

My ford Taurus NASCARS (the bash 'n' crash ones) are my longest cars - they are 161mm long - 10mm longer than my transit vans!!!

The SCX modern NASCARS are about 157mm long.

Just to put this into persepective - my classic Mini Coopers are 100mm long including bumpers!

I don't have an MC12 but I suspect the Taurus is longer by a few mm.

Modern F1 cars are surprisingly long, for example the Sauber F1 web site says their 2012 F1 is 5195mm long (a bit over 162mm in 1/32)
OK nobody makes a slot car body yet, but I guess the idea is to be sure cars you might buy in the future cars will fit your car box.

My MC12s are 161mm as well!

I found a longer one I had forgotten about...

I will see your Cadillac and raise you a Ford Gran Torino - all 175 glorious millimetres of it !!!

Beat that gentlemen (caravans and trailers are cheating!)

By the way if you bring in dragsters you need to prove they will go round an R1 hairpin!

Obviously the Caddy is the short wheelbase "sports" model
