Scalextric C3001 1970 Camaro, Warren Agor (C)

1/32 scale slot car. Ready to run on all 1/32 scale non-digital slot car tracks. Digital plug ready. Accepts C8515 plug-in digital chip. 1970 Camaro #13, as driven by Warren Agor. This car is believed to be the third Chaparral factory team car that Chevrolet gave Jim Hall to build into a race car.

After leaving the Penske Racing team in 1968, Warren Agor formed Agor Racing Enterprises. As a race car owner, builder, and driver he set many track records and won numerous SCCA and IMSA races including the 25th Trans-Am race victory for the Chevrolet Camaro at Sanair International raceway in Canada (the only race track in the world with a name that sounds like the naming rights have been bought by a garbage collection company or a room deodorizer manufacturer). Agor, of Rochester, New York, bought the car from Marshall Robbins in late 1971. He changed the color to Hugger Orange and the number to 13. Hoselton Chevrolet sponsored the car for the three years that Agor drove it. At the time of his retirement from racing in 1973, he had accumulated more points than any then-active professional driver participating in the Trans-Am series. Agor now runs a company providing mobility solutions for the disabled.

Best Finishes for Warren Agor
1972 Lime Rock, 2nd: Bryar, 3rd: Mid-Ohio, 3rd
1973 Daytona, 2nd: Sanair, 1st: Road America, 2nd Fastest Trans-Am lap record of 2.25, 99 mph, which was held into the ‘80’s

The third and fourth cars in the Limited Edition Scalextric 60th Anniversary series are here. They only made a few, so order yours now.


Scalextric C3828A 60th Anniversary no. 3-1980s, Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 Limited Ed.

Scalextric 60th Anniversary Collection – 1980s, Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 Limited Edition First issued in 1984 the original Scalextric Audi Quattro proved to be as big a hit on the Scalextric tracks of the nation as the original had been screaming through Scandinavian forests. The 1980s saw Scalextric move into ever more inventive areas, with items such as ‘Blowout!’ and Racing Rigs bringing new excitement to the brand. Group B rally cars featured heavily as Ayrton Senna made his Scalextric debut towards the end of the decade in a JPS Lotus, alongside Mansell in a Williams.

The Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 itself was introduced at the end of the 1985 as an update to the Audi Sport quattro; with the car sporting an inline turbo charged 5-cylinder engine. In addition to the improved power output, an aggressive aerodynamic kit was added that featured very distinctive wings and spoilers to the front and rear of the car to increase downforce. The S1 E2 did find some success with Walter Röhrl and Christian Geistdörfer winning the 1985 San Remo Rally, but with the Group B era coming to an end in 1986 after a series of tragic incidents, the quattro was consigned first to the Rallycross tracks, and then the history books.

Scalextric C3829A 60th Anniversary Collection no.4-1990s, BMW E30 M3 Limited Ed.

Scalextric C3829A 60th Anniversary Collection – 1990s, BMW E30 M3 Limited Edition

As Scalextric moved into the 1990s it followed another shift in motorsport. Throughout the 1980s rallying and Group B had dominated the airwaves and press, but as that declined, touring car racing, most notably Super Touring, took its place. As the BTCC, DTM and other national series gained in popularity, Scalextric began producing these cars.

One manufacturer above others dominated this form of motorsport, BMW. Although production of the BMW M3 E30 started in the ‘80s it saw considerable success in the early ‘90s, winning the BTCC title in 1990 and 1991, along with numerous DTM, Italia Superturismo Championships and Australian races. It also enjoyed considerable success in the rally category.

As the decade moved on, the BMW M3 E30 was to be found racing in lesser series and is even now a common club racing saloon car; as well as being an icon all other performance saloons aspire to. Other new items introduced in the ‘90s by Scalextric were the horse racing sets, as well as various cars driven by the greats of the era: Senna, Schumacher and Hill, all immortalised by Scalextric. With design moving to CAD rather than pattern making and 2D drawing, Scalextric was rapidly accelerating towards the 21st century.

Four more slot cars from the 2017 Scalextric line are here now, including the cartoon deco VW Campervan.


Scalextric C3891 Volkswagen Campervan

To ferry parts across the massive VW factory, stripped down Beetles were turned into “transporters”. Ben Pon, a Dutch VW importer, thought this was a great idea and in 1947 sketched his idea of a Beetle based van. Two years later it was launched at the Geneva Motor Show as the modern equivalent to the horse and cart.

Scalextric C3877 McLaren P1, Grey

The McLaren P1 is a limited production plug-in hybrid sports car by British manufacturer McLaren Automotive. The concept car debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Deliveries to retail customers began in the UK in October 2013. The entire P1 production of 375 units was sold out by November 2013. The production run ended in December 2015. It is considered to be the long-awaited successor to the McLaren F1, utilizing hybrid power and Formula 1 technology. It does not have the same three seat layout as its predecessor. The design of the headlights is very similar to the shape of the McLaren logo. Just like the McLaren F1 road car of 1992, the McLaren P1 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012.

All six of the Gulf Team mechanics and driver Jackie Ickx are here to populate your pit scenes. Each is hand-painted cast resin.


FLM132020 Jacky Ickx.

There is no more famous endurance racing driver than Jacky Ickx. With 6 LeMans victories he is a legendary figure in motorsports history. He is modeled here as he looked when he won his first LeMans victory in 1969. Yes, we know that’s not the correct car for the occasion and yes, we know his name is properly spelled “Jacky”, not “Jackie”, and so does LMM. He was wearing a driving unifom on which the name had been embriodered incorrectly… so don’t e-mail us.

Scalextric has finalized the paint scheme on the seventh (and final) car in their 60th anniversary series. You’ll want them all (the C3826A E-Type Jaguar and C3827A Lancia Stratos are also coming this fall) and this 250F Maserati is likely to be the most desirable because it is (by chance) painted in the official United States of America blue on white racing colors. It is due in October so you can pre-order it now.

The first Scalextric cars were tin too and powered by a small electric motor, instead of the more common clockwork cars of the time. This new toy took off and by 1958 Francis had sold his idea to Tri-ang, who looked to invest. Tri-ang produced newer cars in plastic and the range of vehicles offered started to expand.

The very first car released by Scalextric in 1957 was the Maserati 250F, then the car to have in Grand Prix racing with Juan Manuel Fangio scoring his legendary final win in one at the 1957 German Grand Prix. In this race he overcome a 48 second deficit in just 22 laps and broke the lap record 10 times in one race. The very first Scalextric set featured two of these cars and perfectly captured both the glamour and beauty of motor racing cars of the period. The 250F was phased out of F1 racing shortly afterwards, but remains one of the most iconic and beautiful F1 cars of all time, a shining testament to the bravery of the early F1 World Championship competitors.

MRRC MC11081 Porsche 911 #4, silver (C)

A basic 911 as raced in countless SCCA amateur races and the U2.5 division of the TransAm in many different liveries.

Technical specification includes Sebring chassis (Inline configuration), Universal guide, SportFix braids, 21k rpm SlimLine motor, ClipFit chassis magnet (can be moved to 2 alternative positions or removed), detailed wheels and tires, fully detailed body and interior including painted driver figure.

This car uses the MRRC/Monogram Sebring chassis. The Sebring chassis is an excellent universal 1/32 scale chassis for use with body kits and for kitbashig and scratchbuilding projects. It can be set up to handle well in both magnet and non-magnet racing. It has an adjustable wheelbase and is compact enough to fit almost any sports car, GT, or sedan body and to allow the use of wide wheels ad tires within even a relatively modest body width.

MRRC and Monogram cars using the Sebring chassis come with a variety of different wheels and tires. All of them use the same “slimline” motor which provides more than enough power for most home and club racing. They are ideal “donor cars” to provide a complete running chassis for the body of your choice at a cost often lower than purchasing the needed components separately.

Scalextric C3842 McLaren P1, Purple

The McLaren P1 is a limited production plug-in hybrid sports car by British manufacturer McLaren Automotive. The concept car debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Deliveries to retail customers began in the UK in October 2013. The entire P1 production of 375 units was sold out by November 2013. The production run ended in December 2015. It is considered to be the long-awaited successor to the McLaren F1, utilizing hybrid power and Formula 1 technology. It does not have the same three seat layout as its predecessor. The design of the headlights is very similar to the shape of the McLaren logo. Just like the McLaren F1 road car of 1992, the McLaren P1 is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012.

Dream Slot Car Track from Neiman Marcus

Comments Off

Neiman Marcus Will Sell You This $300,000 Slot Car Track

This Christmas from Neiman Marcus comes the perfect gift for the car (or slot car) fanatic who has everything: this $300,000 slot car track.

Currently available to order from the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, the Slot Mods USA Ultimate Slot Car Raceway is billed as a 100% authentic 1:32 scale model that comes with scenic elements including handcrafted iconic structures, facades, period slot cars, spectators, pit crews, streetlights, foliage, and more. The track also has integrated video cameras which capture the action and show it on “mini” display screens. Like I said – for the person who has everything.

Another electronic option provided by Slot Mods USA is a night racing feature, where cars’ headlights and trackside lamps illuminate banked turns, replicating the feel of 24-hour endurance races.

The track measures approximately 30′ x 12′ and customers be able to choose from models of Laguna Seca, Le Mans and the Nürburgring. Laguna Seca. From the time you order, it will take six months to build so you won’t get it for Christmas but according to Neiman Marcus “Racing legends, such as Vic Elford and David Hobbs, will cohost your inaugural race night party.” Not a bad trade off.

Neiman Marcus will ship your little corner of slot car heaven anywhere in the world, but shipping isn’t included in the $300,000 price tag.  But wait there’s more, you can add “white glove installation” for an additional cost.

Don’t have an extra 300 grand laying around? No problem. Check out these awesome Slot Car Sets!

slot8 slot7 slot5 slot4 slot3 slot2 slot1 2014-10-13_2014 2014-10-13_2013 2014-10-13_2011a 2014-10-13_2011

With every purchase of The Slot Mods USA Ultimate Slot Car Raceway, Neiman Marcus will donate $3,500 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation—dedicated to supporting youth arts education in communities across the country.

The Fast and the Miniature

September 7, 2011 by

Drivers zoom to glory at Gaithersburg remote-control car raceway. The Gazette A remote-control car goes over a jump inside The Track.

For vehicle enthusiasts who may not want to climb behind the wheel themselves, The Track indoor remote-control car raceway satisfies the need for speed.

With twists and turns, jumps and straightaways, drivers must navigate the warehouse-sized track’s many challenges with their scaled-down vehicles.

Owner Mimi Wong started operating RC car races in 1984, and has been occupying her current building in Gaithersburg since 1991 after closing a toy store. While Wong doesn’t race herself, she is a guru at repairing and painting cars that have made one too many wide turns into a barrier wall.

Wong’s customers range from young children who come in after school to retirees. She enjoys watching families learning how to race together.
“I think this hobby is great for father and son, or father and daughter, the families,” Wong says.

Open seven days a week, The Track provides a place for drivers to practice, tune up their cars or participate in races on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, Wong says. A day of racing costs $10 to $15 and cars are priced from $100 to $5,000, depending on size and other specifications.

In addition to the large track for remote control cars, the warehouse also has a full slot car track that Wong says has produced some of the fastest lap times on the East Coast. Slot cars run within grooves on a track and the driver is only in control of the gas. She also holds indoor miniature airplane and helicopter races.

Since she has been in business for more than 20 years, Wong has seen some of her original customers, whom she met as children, using the skills they learned at The Track in their adult life.

“A few of my customers —kids — became engineers and all that stuff, so it really makes me feel really good when they come by to see me,” she says.

Catching up with Zippety Slot Cars

August 25, 2011 by  
Filed under Slot Car News

Here’s a cool article about zipperty slot cars, learn from the Expert Dale Grove on how to manipulate and race with your slot cars!

Dale Grove is off to the races and he’s inviting young and old to join him.

Slot cars may seem as a blast from the past for some adults.

They have, however, been brought up to date at Zippety Slot Car Racing, which opened in July across from Valu-Mart in the Bay.

Two tracks, a six-laner and a two-laner, lovingly crafted by Grove himself, offer the opportunity for eight people at once to race each other at the same time.

The cars work on the same principle as trams and trolley cars, where a low voltage electric current runs in the slot, the car makes contact with it and it powers a small electric motor in the car.

The car’s “driver” has a controller that regulates the flow of electricity and the speed of the car.

If you go too fast, you’ll crash on the curves.

If you go too slow, you lose the race.

Incidentally, it’s all hooked up to a computer that will measure your laps in one hundredths of a second.

Grove has been taking his smaller track to the Barry’s Bay Farmers’ Market on Friday afternoons, where anyone can try it out.

Or drop by the store and let Grove give you a lesson in speed racing.

It’s fun.

Slot Cars Evolution

July 21, 2011 by  
Filed under Slot Car News

Slot racers play to stay in the groove. Read more about the evolution, downfall and the rise of slot cars.

There was a time when a slot car racing set was a prized part of any youngster’s toy collection and then along came Mario Kart.

Scalextric gradually morphed into PlayStation and most commercial slot car centres closed down, but the hobby hasn’t quite gone the way of high-tops, music cassettes and stonewash jeans.

From the late 1950s through to the 1970s, slot car racing was big business. Hugely popular in Europe, manufacturers such as Cox, K&B, Scalextric and Revell also distributed their cars and track throughout Australia, and there was no shortage of places to race them.

An enthusiast who runs Way2fast Model Car Racing in Fyshwick, Steve Winchester, said he remembered a time when there was a slot car track in every second suburb.

”Then along came computers and most of it died off,” he said.

The 55-year-old opened the business in 2009. Increased demand meant a move to bigger premises in January this year, but it remains Canberra’s only dedicated commercial slot car raceway.

A former printer, Mr Winchester initially started taking a portable track to Tuggeranong Market and various swap meets to gauge demand.

So a semi-retirement project turned into a business which is now ”doing quite well”, and Mr Winchester remains one of his own best customers.

Canberra has two slot car clubs, the Southside and Northside, and members of both regularly race at the Fyshwick track.

A civil engineer and owner of about 700 slot cars, Alvaro Amorim, belongs to the Southside club. He says there isn’t too much panel beating required after regular Wednesday night competition.

Amorim hopes to qualify in a three-person team for the Ninco World Cup to be held in Spain in September.
Slot cars do not have a magnet to help them stick to the track, and watching a novice race is akin to a miniature demolition derby. Marshals man the track to re-slot crashed cars as quickly as possible.

Cars can reach up to 70km/h and Mr Winchester says just because they are smaller that doesn’t deter their owners trying just about anything within the rules to make them go faster. ”You can tune your car, change the tyres, change from plastic gears to metal gears, change the plastic wheels to aluminum or magnesium wheels, move the weight around with plasticine, shave the chassis …” he said.

Amorim believed there were a few parallels to be drawn between slot car racing and becoming a good driver on the open road.

”It’s fantastic to see the kids coming down and developing their skills on the track.’

Slot Cars Online Business

July 19, 2011 by  
Filed under Slot Car News

Here’s a successful story about a slot car business that rapidly grows his business with the help of internet thru Online Shopping.

Online shopping is an ever-increasing force in the retail industry. But will there be a day when stores are completely replaced by websites? Sarah O’Connor reports.

When Peter Van Horssen set up a website for his slot car business almost 10 years ago, he sold two or three items a month. Now, he sells two or three items a day.

It’s a clear reflection of how the demand for online shopping has grown and how important it is for retailers to have, at least, a basic online presence.

Mr Van Horssen, who owns Mobile Raceways in Dandenong, decided to create a website when he noticed his main competitor already had — and was taking some of his business.

‘‘I could see my competitor using it as a tool to gain more sales,’’ he said. ‘‘People would mention his name when they came into the store, even though he was in NSW. I thought wow, obviously they’re purchasing from him as well.’’

When Mr Van Horssen created the website in 2002, it was mostly a page with contact details and a few online shopping opportunities.

With the help of an IT expert, the site has expanded to sell about 3500 products, with photo galleries, event information, party booking details and a slot car and hobby forum.

The site has no boundaries and reaches international customers.

‘‘We’ve recently had a very good customer in the Philippines and he has spent thousands of dollars,’’ Mr Van Horssen said.

‘‘He’s sent us photos. He’s purpose built this huge shed out the back with a huge track, fully decorated — he’s got 1100 figurines and 11 double-storey grandstands down the main straight, trees and grass and fencing, it looks amazing. It’s good when you collect customers like that.’’

Dr Sean Sands of the Australian Centre for Retail Study said 50 to 70 per cent of people conducted online research before visiting a store.

He said that it could be something as basic as checking the store’s location which proved it was ‘‘crucial’’ for businesses to be online. But he said websites would never end the physical shopping experience — ‘‘people still enjoy shopping, that’s not going to change’’.

Slot Cars Zipping Toward the Bay

July 13, 2011 by  
Filed under Slot Car News

Dale Grove shows his slot car race track. He will be bringing the activity to the Barry’s Bay area sometime this month.

For his 10th birthday, Dale Grove was given a small slot car set. Ever since, they have never ceased to give him a thrill and now he is going to share that feeling with the people of Barry’s Bay and area. Zippity Slot Cars will be opening in July.

Grove has built the two tracks that will be available in the store, a large six laner and a smaller two laner. He expects most of his clientele will be children and teens, but he adds, “When I lived in Mattawa, there was an adult slot car club in North Bay that I used to go to. The adults had just as much fun as the kids.”

For those who have never seen them, slot cars are miniature reproductions of racing cars, connecting through the slot in their lane to an electric current varied by the car’s controller through his or her hand-held device. The greater the current, the faster the speed of the car. The curves and “hills” built into the track add to the challenge, and a “champion” develops a level of skill that brings his car in constantly ahead of the others.

Slot cars are usually models of actual automobiles, though some have bodies purpose-designed for miniature racing. Most enthusiasts use commercially-available slot cars (often modified for better performance), others motorize static models, and some “scratch-build,” creating their own mechanisms and bodies from basic parts and materials.

HO slot cars work on a similar principle, but the current is carried by thin metal rails that project barely above the track surface and are set farther out from the slot. The car’s electrical contacts, called “pickup shoes”, are generally fixed directly to the chassis, and a round guide pin is often used instead of a swiveling flag.
