Carrera wins 2013 HRW "Manufacturer of the Year" 2nd Year Running.



Carrera wins this award hands down AGAIN. Another year and another award and it is well earned. 

There is still no other slot car company that offers so much for so little to the home racing enthusiast. And not only in analog 1/32nd scale either. From the huge following of their digital system to the increased model selection in 1/24th scale, Carrera simply leads the way.

Chase Cars: Blues Brothers Movie Cars

What to have on the track if you’re a slot racer 106 miles from Chicago, you've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and you’re wearing sunglasses?



This ride's got a (1/32nd) cop motor- a 440-cubic-inch plant. It’s got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. It’s a model made before catalytic converters, so it’ll run good on regular gas.






Of course you will want to have the Chicago Police cars on hand also (about 60 or so of them will do). Chase Cars can help here too.



Contact http://www.chase-cars.com for more information on these products.
