HO Slot Car Racing

This web site is dedicated to HO Slot Car racing, collecting, restoration, track design, electronics and software.

I have been racing and collecting HO scale slot cars since the 1960’s, when I purchased my first Aurora Model Motoring set as a young boy. The Ford GT-40 and Lola GT that came with that original Aurora Model Motoring set are long gone now, but my love for the hobby continues to this day.

I sell a complete line of slot cars, parts, race sets, track and accessories for all major brands including; Tomy, Aurora, Tyco, Auto World, BSRT and Life-Like.

About twenty years ago I decided to build a dedicated 4-lane HO slot car track, a complete landscaped layout with pit lanes and a large paddock area to display my growing collection of slot cars. Since then I have built several other racing circuits and continue to add to my collection of HO scale race cars.

This web site is an ongoing project. New sections that focus on HO Slot Car Racing, Collecting, Restoration and Track Layout Design will be added as time permits. If you have suggestions for additional content please feel free to contact me.

So whether you’re just getting started or have been racing slot cars for years there’s sure to be something here for you. Along with carrying all of the major brands of slot cars, track and parts I also sell several after-market products lines such as; Parma controllers, Astron power supplies, BSRT high-performance parts, track landscaping supplies, buildings, Lexan bodies, tools and much more.

To make things easy to find, information is organized in nine main categories with relevant pages displayed below each category heading. The narrow scrolling window on the left allows you to quickly find the information you’re looking for. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page is also a good place to start.

At the very bottom of each page you’ll find a small print hyperlink. You can use this command to print a hardcopy of those pages that interest you.

Barn Finds

Here’s something special! I’ve found several cases of these Tyco Ferrari F-40 slot cars in red. They come mounted on a Tyco Magnum 440×2 racing chassis. These cars haven’t been available for over 15 years, but now they’re back. The Tyco 440×2 chassis is a worthy competitor to Tomy’s lastest Mega-G Plus cars in every respect.

Tyco F40-BF

And to make them the fastest cars on your the track try these hop-up parts from BSRT. Silicone racing slicks will allow you to corner faster and get the power down sooner coming out of a turn. The dynamicly balanced motor is wound for power and will make this Ferrari a fantastic racer. And OK, the decals won’t make them any faster but they’ll look like they are.

New Tomy Mega-G Plus Models

There’s even an all-white paintable version of the R18 that with a clever paint scheme and livery decals can be turned into a Mazda, Porsche or Toyota.

To round out Tomy’s newest offerings they’ve brought back their Formula Twin-Pack with a pair on new colorful paint schemes. This F1 Twin-Pack is a great way to purchase two cars that will work with any HO slot car set.

New Auto World ThunderJet 500 TransAm

Auto World has released a TransAm series of ThunderJet 500 slot cars. Along with a Firebird and Mustang, this new series also includes a Dodge and a Mercury as raced by Dan Gurney.

If you’ve never raced a ThunderJet you may like it. They are not nearly as fast as a modern high downforce magnet car, but they’re still a blast to race.

You won’t need any special skills to get these slot cars around a race track other than a steady hand and a little planning. They can be made to drift, but that’s not always the fastest way around.

If you’re old enough to remember the magic of that first Aurora Model Motoring set and the endless hours you raced with your family and friends you’ll know what fun these slot cars can be.

Get a set of all four and recreate one of the greatest American racing series of all times, the SCCA TransAm.

1970 Cuda – Dan Gurney
1966 Mustang – Hayward Ford
1968 Cougar – Dan Gurney
1968 Firebird – Jerry Titus

A set of racing slicks will improve the performance and handling of any ThunderJet 500. These rear slicks replace the standard rubber rear tires with a much softer compound.

Jel-Claws work best on tracks with lots of tight corners, while Silicones tend to work best on tracks with long straights and wider corners. If you’re not sure try a pair of each to tune your ThunderJet for its best performance.

Oil is the life-blood of all racing motors, big or small. You don’t need a lot, but you do need to keep them lubricated. These needle point oilers make it easy to put a very small drop of oil right where it’s most needed without making a mess.

Gluidex II Lubricant 1 oz. Oiler

Voodoo Contact Cleaner is a high tech electronics cleaner and lube. Turn your ThunderJet over and apply a small drop to each of the exposed motor brushes.

This stuff really works! You’ll hear the difference as soon as you rev the motor after using Voodoo.

This product can be used on all slot car motors, not just ThunderJets. It can also be used to clean headphone jacks and stereo patch cables. Just a drop is all you’ll need to improve the electrical performance of any slot car motor, Hi-Fi or USB connector.

New Tomy Releases

Tomy has just released two new slot cars. A lime green Camaro and a Blue Daytona Coupe. The new Daytona Coupe is a limited edition. Only 3000 of the #10 livery were produced world-wide, so don’t wait too long, or they’ll be gone.

The new Cobra Coupe has a clear windshield and photo-realistic interior. This is one of the nicest looking Cobras that was ever raced.

  • Tomy AFX Daytona Coupe Blue #10 MGP
  • Tomy AFX Camaro RS – Green – MGP

New – Race Structures

I am now stocking these interesting photo-realistic raceway trackside building kits, properly scaled for Aurora A/FX and Tomy slot cars, along with all Tyco and Life-Like slot cars.

These building kits are made from thick cardstock with photo printed 3D details. All that’s required to build these kits is some glue, a hobby knife and a straight-edge ruler.

The kits include detailed instructions to help you build these finely detailed trackside buildings. More kits are on the way, but these first three promise to make any HO raceway look really great.

See the Structures page for a complete listing of all 12 buildings available.

More Tomy AFX Pony Cars

Tomy has released two more American Pony Cars, A Ford Mustang Mach 1 and Camaro SS 350. Both cars come fitted to the new Mega-G Plus Long Wheelbase (LWB) chassis.

New Tomy AFX Race Barriers

New for 2018! Tomy has developed a Race Barrier system that’s a really nice alternative to their orange guard rails. These barriers can be used on any Turn or Straight section of track. They can also be attached to the track borders shown below.

One kit contains three 30 inch sections, enough material to cover over 7 feet of track. These crash barriers look great and will keep your valuable slot cars on the table and off of the floor.

Tomy’s Race Barriers are attached to the edge of the track or borders using a high-tech reusable adhesive material. No gluing or fastening clips are needed. In a matter of minutes you can really upgrade your raceway and protect your cars with this great new track accessory.

Tomy AFX 30″ Race Barriers (3 Pcs.)

New Track Borders

I’m now stocking MDF wooden turn borders. These CNC precision-milled borders fit any brand of HO slot car track and can be painted, or covered with my FISA tape kit.

Precision cut from MDF and exactly the right height to create flush mounted turn aprons for both outside and inner turn radius sizes.

They can be secured to a table top using glue, nails, screws or 3M double-sided tape.

NEW – Viper SG+ Racing Chassis

The Viper is a direct replacement for the standard Tomy Super G+Plus chassis. All of the SG+ parts can be transferred to this improved racing chassis.

The Viper Racing chassis includes integral body mounting tubes for fitting lightweight Lexan body shells. These tubes can be easily removed using a side cutter or hobby knife if you prefer to use a GT Body Clip or F1/IndyCar hard-shell body.

A sturdy front bumper protects the guide pin and pickup shoe posts, along with pre-dilled holes at the rear for axle pins. Both 1.5″ and 1.625″ front axle openings allow for the mounting of any Tomy or Aurora A/FX body shell.

The Viper chassis includes a lightened motor timing adjustment bracket and rear traction magnet clip. Just add your Tomy SG+ or BSRT parts to make a very competitive alternative to the Tomy SG+ chassis.

See the Tomy Parts for more information and other Viper racing parts for this fine chassis or a standard SG+ chassis.

NHRA John Force Pro Racing Dragway

This is perhaps the coolest thing to happen in HO slot car racing this year. Snowstorms in Indiana delayed delivery for Christmas, but the NHRA John Force Pro Racing Dragway and eight new NHRA Pro Stock and Funny Cars are now here, and they’re going fast!

This is a fully functioning NHRA Drag Strip in a box. Two Castrol GTX Funny Cars driven by John Force and his daughter Ashley are included in this Tomy track-compatible race set.

NHRA John Force Pro Racing Dragway

This complete turn-key dragway set includes everything you’ll need to stage your own NHRA drag races at home:

John & Ashley Force NHRA Funny Cars
A Working LED Christmas Tree
In-Track Foul Light Sensors
Electronic Finish Gate w/ Win Indicators
12 Feet of Tomy-Style Track
Power Pack & Variable-Speed Controllers

A 1:64 Scale Quarter Mile is actually 20.625 Feet in length, not the 12 foot run that Auto World supplied with its race set, but because they used Tomy style track you can easily make it a true scale 1/4 mile by simply purchasing seven (7) sections of Tomy A/FX 15″ straight track to recreate a full 1/4 mile drag strip if you have the room.

Tomy AFX Dragway Extension 7×15″

Tomy’s new Mega-g Champ Cars are back in stock. Due to licensing issues however the Red Bull #21 car will no longer be available. These are Tomy’s best RTR slot cars; They’re smooth, fast and quiet!

Tomy AFX Champ Car #14 – MG

The silicone tires listed below will slip right on the standard rear wheels of the new Mega G chassis to improve traction and handling.

NEW – Tomy AFX Super G+Plus Jel Claws

Jel Claws are a new high-performance rear tire designed to fit any Tomy AFX Super G+Plus chassis. These tires can be fitted directly to the factory flanged-hub used on the Tomy SG+ chassis.

A pair of these rear tires will do more to improve the performance of a box-stock Tomy SG+ slot car than any other single performance upgrade you can perform.

I stock a full line of Jel Claws for all of the popular slot car chassis. See the Tires page for a complete listing.

New Tomy AFX Track

Tomy has just released some new tracks sections. First up is a Tomy AFX 18″ Radius 1/8 Circle Turn. These ultra-wide radius turns are ideal for faster modern slot cars as well as older vintage Aurora T-Jets and A/FX slot cars. They nest perfectly outside a 15″ radius turn on 4-lane raceways.

Tomy has also re-released their Dual 15″ Power Track. These power terminal tracks allow two (2) power packs to be plugged into a single terminal track for true independently powered lanes, no more power robbing or surges when your opponent in the lane next to you de-slots.

These Dual 15″ Power Tracks also make it possible now to hook up Parma hand controls with 3-wire brakes! Tomy has dropped the orange and purple tampo printing on these new power tracks to give them a much more attractive appearance. Don’t forget to order an extra power pack when purchasing these new terminal tracks.
