Thinking of starting a YouTube channel for Slot Car Drag Racing, I currently have all the components to do so just not sure if I would have enough followers. The goal would not be to get rich or anything I would like to put a lot of effort into these videos and ten people watching honestly would make my day, but no one watching would hurt. I just want to know if there is a market.

I would of thought you would generate 10 views easily on this site ...

But YouTube itself has millions of users not just a few thousand as here , the thing with YouTube you've got a few seconds to grab someone's attention, so the Thumbnail for the Video is important as is the actual title..

Personally I would start the title with the words "Drag Race" and then mention standing 1/4 in what ever the cars will cover it in, its bound to be a lot quicker than 1:1 time don't mention the scale and watch the number of views climb..

Create content that YOU like. Other people who like the same kind of stuff will find it, especially if you post links in a few places where those people hang out.

To answer your question, I would sincerely hope not but there's a metric ton of stuff that leaves me shaking my head in disbelief on YouTube and a lot of that gets views so don't ask, just do. Then see where you end up.

But I'll pass, thanks for asking.

Ha! It is? Geez, shaking my head in disbelief. 🙄

Wait, let me check the barometer of niche a.k.a. the SCI forum homepage....

Edit:
Damn! That is niche! Couldn't see a space on SCI or HRW - and those boys even have a forum for bloomin' oval racing!😲

It's a private sub-forum...oooer, that's wandering into dangerous territory :unsure:

Well, we could, I guess.😕

Aw, but it's only a little banter and it is keeping the thread alive which might mean a bigger response to the poll - currently only four votes cast. Which kinda points to an answer to the titular question really, so, yeah, probably time to move on.🤗

I would be interested. Would you be thinking of covering all scales at a later date?
Once I have finished 10 episodes and have a format finalized I am very open to that just one thing at a time for now. I am currently struggling with a name for the show at #1 is Send it Racing my hope is that viewers will send cars of there own to the show for competition. Any ideas for a name?
