Race In a Case: Better than your average slot car racers
by Mark R
I never had one of those slot car racers when I was a kid, and I don’t think I would buy one for my kids now.
These things always had track that would take up way too much real estate on the floor, and you’d have to take it apart to store it. Then pieces of track would get lost, and you’d have a shorter track, assuming you could get a complete track out of it.
However, the Race in a Case is a terrific alternative to traditional slot car racing, as it packs all the racetrack including the background into one case that folds up very neatly with a handle for carrying.
It also doesn’t require any electric power. Those controllers are hand-powered. This means the faster you crank, the faster the cars go.
Of course, you can’t go too fast around a corner, or the car will go off the track, just like electric slot cars with those trigger controls. Hopefully, they solved that problem with slot cars that just won’t move because they aren’t aligned on the track properly. You’d have to own an electric slot car track to know what I’m talking about.
