NHRA Slot Car Drag Racing Page
Spring Valley Slot Car Drag Racers Assc.
How it all began !
It all started in 1968 when I started collecting Tyco and AFX Slot cars and tracks. Back then there was no NHRA slot cars, just Nascar and specialty cars like Jeeps, Trucks, Lemans, and others. So I cut down a few H.O. Slot cars and built on the front to create a Dragster style slot car. They worked ok but not sweet. Wasn't until around 2005 Auto World started producing NHRA 1/64 Scale Slot Cars in Funny Cars and Dragsters.
Of Corse I purchased them all ! I also collected every Hot Wheel and old time Drag racer from the 40's on.
Well I needed to put it all to good uses so I built the first fully detailed 1/64 scale NHRA Drag Raceway complete with Wireless RC remote power, Full Mega Screen TV with Live feed, real time Christmas Tree, real time RT & ET, but the speed was calculated and programmed for scale so the 40's cars vs. a modern Funny car would show true scale speeds.
The whole track and power system runs off Solar Power so not worries of a brown out ! The track is also secure with a 24-7 Camera monitor system and motion sensor to keep the Slackers Out !
So continue on and check out the build !

Here is the Track build under construction. Post will be weekly or Monthly.
The Electronics for the track will also be posted as we design it !
The Goal for this NHRA Slot Car Track will be Realism ! We will spare no details.
Unlike Normal tracks where you just give it power and the car zooms down the track, this one involves skill.
You will have a Burn out area with Real SOUND and SMOKE !
You will then Pre-Stage and the Sound will change to Motor Idling.
When the lights turn Green you will Have to Shift your Gears in the Correct time every 61 inches of track.
If you shift to fast or to slow your car will slow down and loose time !
At the end of the track you can shift into Reverse and back your car up if needed !
We have Created the WORLDS First Wireless RC System (WSCS)
where you no longer need the use of a hand controller
This system uses a advanced TX-RX-ESC-Switching unit that allows for different slot car classes to race at different speeds and allow for shifting and breaking.
The unit is for sale and custom build at time of order for only $350.00 and allows you to connect to any race set system on the market !
Please e-mail us for information and pictures as this set up is Classified !
