Do you remember when slot-car racing was huge? Remember the at-home slot-racing sets by makers like Strombecker, Eldon, Scalextric, Aurora and others? Do you remember the big slot tracks in the big "Model Raceways" in each town that were packed on Saturdays?
And do you remember all that disappearing around the time the "Winged Warriors" disappeared from NASCAR's superspeedways?
Fortunately, for you folks--and those who weren't around back then...Carrerra's got a home slot-car set that's bound to be something on your Christmas list (or a great gift idea for a devoted Mopar devotee).
Ready to race--in scale: Carrera's "Winged Warriors" slot car set, the latest in their line-up of slot car sets built with modern technology--and incredible detail.
It includes two 1/24-scale replica Dodge Charger Daytonas: The #55 that Tiny Lund raced in '70, and the #22 that Richard Brooks ran--with a de-stroked 340 instead of a Hemi--in 1971. (Want to put other numbers or colors on them? That's your deal!)
The set--which has a layout size of 9.58 feet x 5.54 feet--includes ten each of straight and curved track sections;end sections, guard rails and supports, connectors; a power transformer and two mechanical-speed controllers; and complete instructions.
You can find Carrera's "Winged Warriors" set at most leading hobby and toy retailers (stores and online).
