The "cool" file....slot car videos on YouTube

OK, not news per se, but absolutely worth a look... check out this video by a club near Barcelona.

From Enric69 (who produced the videos)..."The videos are part of a championship in a club in sabadell called rctvalles. You can visit the page of the club on . The race is organized by RCT valles. The club is located near barcelona in sabadell. There is a lot of members and also many sloters that they do racing on this club... they do the rally on friday afternoon, night, saturday morning at 8:00 and at 11:00. Those are the clasifications and the finals are saturday afternoon...the sand is floor mixed with cacao."

"There is two clubs in sabadell.. one is rct valles and the other one is GASS. GASS and RCTvalles organizes separated like all the clubs a championship like the real rallye championship. Gass and RCTvalles are the 2 clubs that I usually go to race.

Those clubs in rally competition are the best of spain and maybe on europe... There is a High level of driving and competition!"

There are 26 video's on his list and each has something different to see.

Flour and cocoa powder on the track sounds like a great idea. I wonder which compound of tire works best? I wonder if an open tread design is better than a slick?

there are different kinds of tires to use with the "snow" or "sand".

like this one...

there are plenty of tires to choose on.
most of the tires are hand-made by a "secret machine".

Wow, this really cool! I would love to do that kind of race and it would be a good use for my huge collection of rally cars. I'm going to have to set up a rally track like that, maybe out in the yard? Thanks for that, Dave!
