No slot cars, but I do fly/mod RC Helicopters (still working up to the huge electric 3d flying ones... I'm 1 step below them and about a 1 month or so from buying one).

I've always thought those were neat & love watching people fly them.

I used to years ago. There was a shop in Ocala that had a huge 8 lane track. Never got good enough to race in leagues, but it was fun.

I never really got into helicopters until I sold my Subaru and the guy gave me cash + ~$700 worth of rc stuff... plus I found out a good friend is into rc helicopters and now im hooked.

I bash RC Monster Trucks and truggies. No tracks in my area, so my kids and I just mess around with them in our yard and the pasture behind us.

I had an HO set-up in the basement on the ping pong table...when I was about 12. :D

But I must admit...I wouldn't mind getting a gas powered RC car and racing it. those are pretty cool.

Slot Cars are Cool.... When I was in HS ( 64-68 ) Our town had a vacant Resturant , a bunch of guys got together and made it into a slot car track. Slot cars were really big then. I had a HS buddy who could paint and draw Roth Car Monsters and he did the whole wall on one side.
I never got into em, but I ended up with some really neat wheels and slicks, used em on my car models.
I'm into Plastic Models, I have over 350 unbuilt kits.... Ceilings are full of airplanes. I do mostly Military stuff, but I have lots of cars too.... "BH"
