Any Slot Car fans?

I still have my slot car from the mid 70's that I used to race with my buddies, but these cars are insane.

My slot cars were trucks to go along with my trains. They were not fast. Well I remember the firetruck was kinda fast compared to the others but no were near as fast as regular slot cars.



I know that police car at the end was a regular slot car as a friend of mine had the same one. You can see how much faster it was compared to the truck.

Holy crap. Those things move way too fast. LOL

The truck video was cool. I had no idea you could do that.

I had this set (not all of the pieces). It's one of my favorite childhood memories. I had the Fire station, Airport, Crane Pipe loader, and gravel pit.

That video is really old. I used to show it to my friends to freak them out.
