  • 1 year of slot racing, report!

    Well guys it was right around this time a year ago that I started racing with our local club on Thursday nights. The Northwest Association of Slot Track Enthusiasts (NASTE.org) is just an awesome group of guys!

    Since then I have joined forums, started proxy racing, done a 24hr race, and also taken up 1/24 racing recently.

    There are some real challenges facing this hobby, as a newcomer finding good information can be hard. I have done my best to share knowledge here, on youtube, and facebook. I appreciated the valuable insights the veterans here have given me, BrumosRSR, ChrisguyW, Audi1, F1fan all included. Please continue to share and encourage new participation. I consider myself the "next generation" of slot car enthusiast, as I am only 33....but still the youngest guy at the track most of the time.

    My career is in motorsports, and I spend most of my time tinkering at home on cars rather than watching tv or what have you nowadays. It takes a fair amount of time commitment to get the most out of the hobby for me, but I welcome the challenge as learning new tricks is rewarding.

    Anyway, I find it challenging, relaxing, and just plain fun!

    My 1/32 collection after a years time.....all of them bought for racing, proxy research, or a couple just because they were too good a deal to pass up!

      Well youngster welcome to the club. Glad to have you aboard. You have already jumped in and become moderator of 2 proxies. So you are off to a good start.

        Wow, I'm a veteran Gascarnut, ChrisGuyW, Smokieo , Allan and Retro Racer44 helped me along the way also. As DRW21 has said its no fun when there's no one to race against, plus it makes us all up our game for a top 10 in a proxy. Having you and CourtneyS come in and perform well in proxies is fun to see and yes pass it along.

            Nice collection. What are the cars sitting on to keep the wheels up off the shelf?
