New Tool from Ralph Thorne Racing

Ralph Thorne Racing introduces their new guide tongue bending tool. 



With modern chassis getting stronger and stronger, the older guide tongue benders just weren't cutting it anymore. We increased the size to allow more leverage and easier tweaking.



It's made from stainless steel, and all of the hardware is stainless steel also. It comes with everything you need to use it.



Just unscrew the thumbscrew, place one washer on the top and bottom of the guide flag and thread the thumbscrew back into the handle. 

Retail is $24.99 with full discounts to distributors and raceways. These are on www.ralphthorneracing.com and shipping now!

New Stock Car Body From Ralph Thorne Racing













The bar for original, creative race winning slot car bodies has now been raised once again...

Ralph Thorne Racing LLC. presents the newest member of our Titan family, The Titan XL. 

The first modern and original 4 1/2" 1/24 Stock Car body in quite awhile. 

The Titan XL is based off of our highly successful 4" body, and the newly approved Nascar Whelen series bodies in 1:1 racing. It features more pronounced fender flares that look great with the front wheels under it, a longer cowl for a more realistic look, and what we think is the lowest and most aerodynamic front end and green house area. 

You'll notice it has more of a traditional front bumper to allow for front wheel clearance and to accommodate most rule sets which require front bumpers. The body will measure just under 3.250" wide. Once again we've added a nice cut line to assist in body trimming and mounting. 

This body truly blends a modern and realistic race car appearance with superior race winning on-track performance.
