In things of quality, the difference lies not
in the materials, but in the details. While a
slot-car track from Slot Mods that can run
from $10,000 to $500,000 has its share
of styrofoam and construction-grade
lumber, in addition to materials like
marble, leather or exotic hardwoods, the
magic comes from the smallest of details.
“Every track we build presents its own
challenges,” says Slot Mods USA founder
and creative director, David Beattie. “We
strive for heirloom quality, so for every detail
you see, there are as many you don’t see.”
It takes a range of talent to produce a
Slot Mods track, from fabricators to model
artists. The process involves personal
consultations with the client, a visit to the
installation site if possible and then a
series of drawings prior to beginning the
build. If a client wants a section of the
Targa Florio, Beattie has to deliver the
dream, while also grappling with the
physical limitations of the installation site.
“Even with all the planning and detail,
it’s when we are nearly done that the
inspiration goes into overdrive with all the
small details that add to the joy of
experiencing the track,” says Beattie.
controllers and the Carrera Race App for
WIRELESS+ has a 50ft-plus operating
range, and frequency hopping provides
operation. The system can be used with
a Black Box or a Control Unit, and the
receiver allows signal transmission to six
different cars simultaneously on one track.
Use the Carrera Race App and
AppConnect to link up your DIGITAL 132,
or DIGITAL 124, race track with your
smartphone or tablet, and manage all
your own race and car settings.
A great slot-car track comes to life with the countless small details that add realism and magic.
