Usually, when you talk about slot cars, you’re either talking about ones to collect and display or ones that you race. However, there are a few great models that look incredible but also perform well on the track; those are the ones we’re looking at today.
Top 5 Most Collectible Slot Cars for Hobbyists
We searched through the entire RC Superstore catalog to find some cars that straddle the worlds of racing and modeling. Here are the 5 most collectible cars we found that are perfect for slot car hobbyists.
The first thing you’re likely to notice about these Mega G+ cars is how much they actually look like something you’d have seen in the CART or IRL racing series. However, in spite of their good looks, they really do perform well.
Even if you’re racing an intermediate track and go through the curves at full throttle, they should still stay on the track 60-70% of the time. Those who want to drive expert courses will still see really good performance out of them.
Collectors will appreciate that these cars are designed to look like those that might take the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans. Meanwhile, those who plan on racing them will appreciate the fact that they boast all of the performance you’d expect from Auto World.
One thing that makes them so competitive is that they’re low to the ground. Additionally, their weights are biased toward the bottom of the cars so you can take them faster than normal.
Anybody who collects old-school Grand National series stock cars will love the look of these Chevy Monte Carlo vehicles. They’re also great for those who like the history of the old USAC series.
Serious racers will appreciate the inclusion of a speed limit controller, magnatraction, and extremely durable bodywork.These cars are perfect for enduring frequent use and abuse.
A customized 1970 Yenko Chevy Nova and a 1968 Nickey Camaro make the included cars from this set extremely collectible. At the same time, they’re capable of going over the included 9″ radius curved track.
This means that they’re still capable of performing extremely well. They should be able to stay on the track even if you decide to run them at a good clip.
By including a 1968 Chevy Corvette 327 and a special blue 1969 Corvette 427, AFX certainly attracted a huge group of potential collectors. On top of that, these mount some of the strongest HO power packs in which you can invest.
Furthermore, they also give you the freedom to change directions whenever you want to. That empowers potential hobbyists to race them competitively while also using them as display pieces later on.
