Re-Enthused!

Recommended Posts

Not much point to this post really. Just stoked to be enjoying slot cars again.

 

Haven't really done anything with slot cars for about 9 months. Last Christmas I had heaps of family over and we raced and raced and raced. Then everyone left and it was back to me and my young boys again. It was still fun but just wasn't the same in terms of excitement.

 

Then just this week the bug has bitten. Got the track wiped down, cars tidied up, and have been using the track heaps again! There is about 5 years between my boys so variable voltage to the different lanes is great for handicapping, allowing us to do similar lap times.

 

Must have done 20 ten lap races this morning. Final race was brilliant.

 

Start:

Half way through the final lap (looks staged I know):

Then flat out from there for a really close finish. One happy dad and two happy boys :)

 

Anyways, thanks for reading. Just good to be able to share my refound enthusiasm with others that enjoy the hobby!

Nice thanks for sharing..

 

How old are the boys? My girls 7 & 10 drift in & out - which saves my cars a bit - definitely run on lower volts...


They are only toys .... until you pull the trigger.

Hi Capri-corn,

 

7 and 10 would give you a run for your money I bet.

 

Mine are 3 and 7. The 3 year old gets the fastest car and at lower voltages has got the hang of slowing for corners.

 

Lets just say I don't need much handicapping in comparison to the 7 year old :lol:
