Hello CincySlots Customers,
CincySlots has finish our shop track. We had our first race on 3/31 which was a success. You can watch some video HERE. Remember we have the track open for customers from 5pm-8pm. Depending on the turnout we can add another race time to the schedule. The cost is $4 for the day. You will need your own car or you can rent one for $5. We will offer your basic controller for free. The track is set up for Carrera digital racing but you can race analog cars too but we prefer digital. Digital allows 6 racers at a time. Let us know if you plan to stop in.
Once the season kicks off in the Fall, these will be the general rules that apply to the Carrera D124 and D132 Stock series cars:
Carrera D124 and D132 Rules
The overall thought process with the cars is that they are to remain stock in appearance, with only small modifications to improve their performance. The intention of the series is not to build full blown custom slot cars. This keeps the cost and preparation time to a minimum.
