hi,this slot car set is interesting because it was made around 1952-3, 4-5 years before scalextric & vip made their first sets.of course it is a single lane roadway not 2 lane racing set.still it was the the first production slot car set made.but very little is known about it.the car is made of bakelite not plastic.the chassis is brass & it has 2 plastic pin guides,1 in front & 1 in back.the front pin has 2 metal contacts ,1 on either side to pick up the electrical current on the insides of the slot channel of the track.the track itself is tin with a cardboard back.the control is a simple push button on & off.the inside of the box mentions using their transformer made from 1949-1953.bub was known mostly for their train sets.it was a very old german company.i believe there are about 4 sets known to exist.thanks,bernard
