Upstate Speedway needs our help

Upstate Speedway needs our help. This is veteran-owned slot car racing and entertainment business. They have multiple tracks and a drag strip.

They have been working diligently to get the tracks ready to run but have encountered problems with wiring and lap counters. Unfortunately no local track building talent is available in their area.

Gary Gerding has offered to help them get their tracks "ship shape" so that they can open to the public and have races. The owner is asking the slot car racing community for donations to cover Gary's expenses. I am sure that Gary is giving them a deal since his estimate for services seems cheap.

Even though Upstate may not be "near" you, won't you please consider donating so we can have another world-class raceway open for business here in the U.S.A. ?

Please direct questions by messenger to the Upstate Raceway FB page.

I am starting off the project by donating $100 from Project X Slot Car Racing products.

RTR Announces New Honda NSX ISRA Production Class Body

Ralph Thorne Racing announces the new Honda NSX based 1/24th Production body!



















For this project we enlisted the help of World Champion racer James Cleave. The goal was to make an original and realistic looking body with lots of downforce while still meeting ISRA body specs. James did a spectacular job. The body tested very well on the track too! The NSX measures 3.250" wide and has a cut line. Made in the USA, and we ship worldwide!

Once again this is an original copyrighted design from Ralph Thorne Racing with all rights reserved. We don't back pour or copy any other manufacturers designs.

They are available in .005", .007" and .010" thick Lexan. Each body comes with a unique window mask and a pair of front wheel stickers.

Please note that we start from .005", .007" and 010" material, so it will be thinner on the sides. As always we strive for quality pulls with even side thickness.

Retail price for .005" and .007" is $6.95 each plus shipping.

Retail price for .010" is $7.95 each plus shipping.

Raceway pricing is available and ERI already has these in stock.

Please note the bodies will only come in retail packaging when purchased by a raceway or if specifically requested on direct orders.
