Hi all

Yes another 40yr old kid rediscovering slot cars.

Just picked up a scalextrix sport kit and extras off a mate who wanted to get rid of it.

I have a 11 yr old so he is over the moon, might get him off the Xbox for a while!

 

Unfortuantely I had to cut the baseboard to transport it 12ftx6ft is now 8x6 !

So its an opportunity to change the track and redesign. Looking forward to rebuilding it and setting up some nice scenery.

 

I have seen that from some of the posts their are some dedicated racers and modellers here.

Look forward to asking lots of questions and begging for help. :huh:

 

Check out some pics I took before I dismantled it for transport. Turned out to be a good idea, when it came to rebuilding it.

Best Regards

Welcome to the slot junky joint.

 

It's actually amazing how the young uns take to slots after being reared on a PC.

 

I'd really encourage you to make a son and dad thing, maybe get some of his mates involved for a periodic race day, and maybe some family and friends.

Not only is the racing fun, but the socialising and chat around slots, and soing work together to make a thing better seems to be a flaming good social tonic.

 

Good on ya mate!
