Porsche 917 slot car track.

Painful photoshop fail aside, not a bad gift idea for the car guy who has everything....

"Born from our passion of vintage racing, Slot Mods is proud to offer limited-edition replicas of cars from one of the greatest eras of racing. Our first offering: the RCR 917 that Vic Elford and Gerald Larrousse drove to victory at the 1971 12 Hours of Sebring. With just a push of a button, the body opens to reveal the ultimate slot car racing experience!

The RCR 917 is a faithful reproduction with fiberglass body panels true to its original shape. Specifications: rolling aluminum 3-piece original-style center lock wheels, race-worn tires, working headlights and taillights, and inside…a beautiful 1/32 scale wooden slot car raceway, featuring handcrafted, period-correct signs, banners, aluminum Armco railing, trees and structures.

But we couldn’t stop there. Also available to test your endurance, we’re offering the RCR GT40, RCR P4, and RCR T70. Choose period livery, or your own design."



  1. Fun fact: Slot car racers don't actually look at the car, they listen. It's simply to fast to look and see what's happening, so sound tells them more about slip and corner entry etc..

  2. Any of you guys ever did slot car racing? years ago I used to go religiously to a great spot on Broadway and 19th. I used to love it. Group car enduros were pretty awesome, swapping motors and gears on the fly and all.... It was a New Yorker to get the racing fix!
