Largely a hobby of my generation (boomers), was wondering if folks here have or do dabble with slot cars at all. I know there have been threads on this in the past, thought I'd bring it up again.
I'm part of a club of largely car guys (current past cars owned by members include Lotus, Aston Martin, Jag, Vettes, Corvair Monza, Miata, BMW, Porsche, Audi, etc., with a smattering of nice motorcycles) who race 1/32 scale slot cars on our home tracks. We range from blue collar to a pharmacist, a couple lawyers, a judge, a doctor, etc.
With one exception, our tracks are routed wood, 3 to 4 lanes, and we race semi formally once a month between October and June. Over the Spring/Summer/early Fall 1:1 scale cars take priority. Oh yeah, and families too.
We're a good group of car fanatics who also happen to play with toy cars in our basements. If you're in the mid-atlantic area and would like to know more, drop me a line at [email protected]
(I rarely check my LT messages).

BTW...there are plenty of Lotus slot cars available these days.
