still being at school i feel this is a quite appropriate topic for me to stick my head in,
slotcars have taught me engineering skills, which i use in resistant meterials,(design technology) this offers perks as i am trusted with the vac former, the normal lathes and even the modelmaking lathe (which is usually staff only)
slotcars has also given me a headstart in learning about electronics, friction, acceleration, air resistance etc
maths: i still have not found a usefull purpose for this in slots (exept for maybe speeds, basic addition subtraction etc)
socially: slots has helped with competitivly based topics, but my friends do constantly ridicule me for what they consider to be a "sad" hobby, but on a freezing cold rainy day i would rather be indoors with slotcars than stuck in front of a tv.
