For Buildings and

format that you can print out and assemble buildings from. Some very
cool and cheap alternatives here (thanks Dennis Samson). Also
don’t forget Carrera has a new system of very cool buildings and
people that you can buy new this Christmas.
Mike (I know it says Howard above which is his last name) has built
several specific items for both Rene and myself. Also nice trackside

the Goodwood racetrack in the 1960’s. Also nice trackside stickers
New product site that may be worth watching in the future. Right now
only one product for one radius curve.

His own store!!
In regards to slot
discussion forums and boards I have used the following:
One of the largest is for 1:32 at
They are also affiliated
with the Spanish forum Foroslot
And the Italian Forum
and the Dutch Forum
Another good one is Slot Car Garage, covering 1:32, 1:24 and HO scales
Slot Car Illustrated (also
an online magazine) covers many scales
Slotblog covers slot racing
news from readers around the world, as well as events at Buena Park
Raceway. Operated by Phillipe De Lespinay.
Another great Spanish site
is Slotcenter which is more of a portal than forums but still good info.
Jim Cunningham runs Nomad
Slot Racing as both a racing club and a store in Vista, CA. On his
website you'll find some great picture of slot cars he built, as well
as a store and information about the club.
Harry Wise seems to share
our racing philosophy and has a great review/forum site.
A directory to other
slotcar sites can be found here:
