Hey,

Used to be a frequent user on this forum many years ago when i was obsessed by it.

It was only a few weeks ago when i thought i was cured from this slot car-bug and could resist from buying Scalextric again, But how wrong was i..
i recently visited the new West fields shopping centre in London and saw that model-zone was having a huge sales on.... yup.. scalextric. The urge to buy a set was too great and i gave into temptation.
After walking out of the shop with Two scalextric sets and a bunch of auto-art cars, i finally realised i was not cured


I currently live in Central london now as a full time university student studying architecture, so if anyone knows any central Slot Car clubs, I would love to go and check it out.

Cheers

QUOTE (fw14b @ 8 Feb 2012, 22:19) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>A pity you aren't in Essex on Monday evenings as G T Raceway might be close.
Can you get to Kilburn?

During my Terms off , i return to Colchester in Essex so if you jot down the details for this G T raceway, i could pop around one day

Well I'm in woodford green and I drive to GT Raceway on Monday nights, been doing it for about a year now.
On a good day it takes 30 mins on a not so good day 45 mins, well worth a visit.
Friendly group of guys all willing to help and share their knowledge on how to set up your cars.
The owner of the club (Graeme) isn't as bad as people make him out to be really.

Why not give it a try, I'm sure your enjoy yourself and will be made to feel very welcome.

You can never be cured of the slot bug, resistance is futile. Having decided I had enough on my plate at the moment with various 1:1 car projects I made a firm commitment not to spend any money on slot cars for some time. I had a relapse about 3 hours ago and became convinced I needed an SCX Crono set so had to order one
