Racing Software

This page is a compilation of software programs useful to HO slot car racers. The links provided below take you directly to the respective authors’ web sites. From there you can download the latest releases of the software described here. Most of the software listed here can be used for 1:32 and 1:24 scale slot car racing as well as H.O.

Lap Timer 2000

This MS Windows program will time and count laps on any slot car track with up to 4 lanes. Timing and lap counting is accomplished using simple circuitry that can easily be built with components available from your local Radio Shack store. The computer interface is via the serial, printer, keyboard or standard joystick game port found on most PC and laptop computers. Lap Timer 2000 can be used with any HO, 1:32 or 1:24 scale racing layout. Lap Timer 2000 will run on MS Windows Vista, 95/98/ME/NT/XP/2000 systems.

Slot Cars 2000

This MS Windows program will create an inventory of your slot car collection. Slot Cars 2000 will record information about each car in your collection. Along with catalog and model information, you can also record acquisition dates, prices and current values, chassis and motor modifications as well as track and testing results. Slot Cars 2000 was designed to create detailed inventories of slot cars collections, but it can also be used to inventory metal die-cast collections or Mattel Hot Wheels and Matchboxes. Several inventory reports can be generated and printed, an option is also included to print lists of items for sale. The inventory reports you generate can be displayed as standard HTML web pages. Slot Cars 2000 will run on MS Windows Vista, 95/98/ME/NT/XP/2000 systems.

Track Power

This MS Windows program allows you to design 1:32 scale DC and digital raceways. It is NOT suitable for HO scale raceways however. Parts databases for Scalextric Sport Digital, Carrera Pro-X and SCX Digital track systems are included. If you’re designing a 1:32 scale digital raceway or a DC powered track you should take a look at this program. It’s very well done.

Tracker 2000

This MS Windows program is no longer supported by its author. I’m providing it here for previous users. Please do NOT contact me for a registration key. If you don’t already have a registration key I can’t help you. The setup program you download was the last release of Tracker 2000, version 3b.
