Hi ...... and welcome to the forum .....


Great question to stir up the various hornet's nests


Would you be able to update your profile so that we can get a rough idea of whereabouts your are from? We should be able help with suggestions that might include your nearest club. Also remember that there is a huge gathering at the National Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon in the Midlands on the 20th May where you can see just about everything and try most of it as well.

All the best - Greg

Hi and welcome to the forum

Are you thinking of using plastic track or going for a routed track?

Digital is certainly different, opinions are divided on it being much worse or much better.
For your track all that matters is what YOU prefer, the best way to make your mind up is try it.
As has already been said, tell us more about where you are located and there should be plenty of helpful suggestions as to where you can go and try some slot racing in action.

It really is down to personal preference.

If you don't know what you like it might be an idea to share your location then if someone is local to you they may let you try out their track or visit a local slot car club!
