Slot Car Database

Hi guys a bunch of people at SCI have been tossing around the idea of setting up a slot car database that would contain information on RTRs, parts, motors, etc. Measurements, maybe links to reviews, all the odds and sods that are recorded about these toys we play with but get lost in the ephemera. I was wondering if this is just more idle chatter or whether this maybe something of value.

The idea is that I would set it up on my new slot car site. I have a database and PHP all set up plus I do these types of databases for a living. I would make it available for a select group of contributors to maintain. The information would then be available via reports and search screens for all. I could also make it available to other sites in some manner to be determined.

Any interest or should I forget the whole thing?

excellent idea...although i have poor computer skills ( webpages/databases etc ) i'm pretty good with a digital camera and have approximately 120 + shelf queens that would be more than willing to pose for my lens...i'd be happy to donate the images to your database together with any basic measurements required...
all this will take time obviously...
a slotcar database with info on each car's details/measurements/ a few photos/ liveries/release numbers/released markets covering all the manufacturers past and present would be an extremely useful resource tool for both collector and racer alike and if made widely accessible to the slotcar community would definately contribute to the hobbies expansion...
hope this idea gets off the ground...
