Hi,

Here's a set I've been wanting to put on for a while. It's a 1/24th scale drag set made by Eldon in 1965. Thos was really a great set that came with all you needed to drag race. The track when set up was 17-1/2 feet long. Im not sure but that may have been a quarter mile.


At the front of the track you have the transformer with 2 controllers which are on-off only. Then you have synchromatic start system with an automatic race & reset push button control. Next is a very cool christmas tree with starting lights tjat flash from yellow to green & then to red. At the end of the 17-1/2 feet of track you have an automatic finish line win selector with a built-in arrow which points to the winner,

At the very end of the track are 2 tunnels with foam shock absorbers to cushion the 2 dragsters so there is no damage. The 2 AA/fuel class dragsters have weighted drop arms so they do wheelies when they take off. They can reach up to a scale 200 mph. The set also comes with a hop-up kit (braids, slicks, sandpaper,etc). It was the best drag set made,you only needed the room to set it up.


Enjoy,
Bernard

Hi heres the Republic drag set from 1968 as requested. It has a Plymouth GTX and a Plymouth Road Runner.You use the shift stick to control the speed. I also included pictures of the 2 1/24th scale Hubley dragsters with their correct slot chassis. Finally i could not resist showing 2 photos of the Auto Stop set from Italy made around 1952.
Thanks,Bernard (its sort of a drag strip)
