Hi all. I've been quietly visiting slot related sites and amassing a good sized collection of 1/32 scale slot cars (around 400 or so at present) for about 7 years now. Years of apartment living meant that I could not build anything permanent. Now as a new home owner I have a room dedicated to slot cars. In fact, the slot room was a prime consideration in my buying the house! Woodland Trace Raceway is a 4-lane Ninco road course of about 50 feet in Winston-Salem, NC. I'm currently finishing work on a scratch built pit complex that will be about six feet in length and I have plans for a 3-foot long grandstand, a scratch build tire bridge and a fenced in paddock area. I plan to post some preliminary pix in a few weeks. As a kid I was an avid 1/24 scale model car builder. To this day though I never kitbashed any model cars. That will change. I have a collection of some cool 1/32 scale model kits that I plan someday to customize, so I'll be looking for advice in that area. I'm also looking for friends locally who have their own cars and would like to form an informal club. Even though I have certain cars that are dedicated dynamics, having family over to trash them gets old real quick.
