EBay version of website overing all kinds of cool unusual slot cars and slot rally cars many in resin from smaller manufacturers. His main site is here:
SCX Full Reference History and car pictures site
SCX focused site with excellent photos of the vast majority of all cars made
For Buildings and accessories here are four excellent sites:
German site that has republished re-printable color paper files in pdf 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 stickers
http://www.gakworld.co.uk/scalextric/scalextrics.html Graham does nice reproductions of the older Scalextric buildings modeled on 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.
From Marc at ITG:
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 Italiaslot
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:
