Only a few personal thoughts :
- I think that people commercially involved should stay at the side of the street and watch carefully what is happening, without take part but only offering some useful (and greatly appreciated !!) informations;
- What is a toy? Soon or after someone here says that these are only toys; I think not; a Marklin series 1 train which costs 2000 euro is a toy?A R/C plane is a toy?
Surely kids buy slot cars, but the manifacturers build them with us, the adults, in their mind, and scale accuracy, or scale "look and feel" is the first issue; I agree with Mr. PdL and I like very much when he shares with us his knowledge of models and real cars of the past.

- Lastly, when a new model is available ( and even before !), we make frantic and hard discussions on ever the smallest detail of it; one or two weeks later all fade away and new models are our objective; I would like more words and experiences on the real life of models when they run on the tracks in the following months; an example : I have bought the new Mono/Revell Corvettes; they are good looking models and I like them, but no one in our Club use them seriously on the track because they have poor brakes; on the other hand, all of us seem to like Scalextric Minis and the new Dallaras, so we are planning enduro races ( one to three hours ) with them; soon after I will report the problems encountered in the race, hoping you will like it.

I agree with RR; furthermore, we represent others, fellow slotracers and friends, that don't have the skill to work on computers and Internet, but will know the news of the slot world from us, the so called "experts".
