Slot car racing is the hobby of racing miniature electric-powered replicas of full size cars on a track layout with “grooves” or “slots”. The slot cars have a guide flag attached to the front of the car. This flag can swivel in both directions and follows the slot in the track. Either battery or direct current powers the track.

 

The use of a hand controller hooked up to the main power source at each color-coded station provides the current to the slot that the car is racing on. By pulling the trigger of the controller, current passes from the track power source through the set of relays, through the braid on the track and the slot car, to the motor, and through the resistor in the hand unit. The further the trigger is depressed, the quicker the slot car will run. To slow the slot car down or to stop completely, the trigger of the controller is released.

Racers quickly develop an enhanced sense of eye-hand coordination. There are many skills that will be learned and challenged with slot car racing from learning to build and decal your car (if you choose) to learning and understanding how speed, velocity and making the turns is critical to driving successfully

The hobby can be interactive and is enjoyed by young children to adults. Good sportsmanship is learned and promoted at all times and to the highest levels
