Pactra was already in the model paint business when slot car racing hit the market in a big way. Pactra imported the Japanese Igarashi/Hitachi motors and had complex soldered brass tubing chassis fitted around the smaller version of these motors, sold in kit and RTR versions. Most famous Pactra car is the American Red Ball Spl, a Lola T80 that won the 1966 Indy 500. In 1966, they acquired the Competition slot car manufacturing company in Santa Ana and used it as a lower-cost product line. The Competiton cars are very similar but feature no drop arms and use a Mabuchi motor. Both are very collectible but again condition is utmost in determining their value.
