Wing cars - Wow!
Posted 16 January 2012 - 03:33 PM
Bought a GT car and ran this week but the highlight was getting to drive a wing car. I never thought i would like them becasue they didn't look like a real car. Three of us made a few laps running side by side and was it an adrenalin rush! Now I have to find a decent inexpensive used one to play with.
Too many cars and so little time.

I hope they make a comeback.
You have to get the body right to make them work but they are worth the effort.
Even a Falcon or Hawk 7 car is a blast to race.

They're not my cup of tea but I understand their appeal.
They are all part of the same great hobby: model car racing, normally termed slot racing.
It may seem silly but it really is important that we view the slot racing hobby from this perspective.
Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Like you, I didn't think much of wing cars way back when, but I share your enthusiasm over the adrenalin involved and am hopelessly hooked.
Let us know when and what you get for a car and have a blast!

I like racing wing cars better than other types of slot cars because they are fast and the racing is very intense. I race against Randy and others at Buena Park Raceway located in Orange County, California. I think that the faster cars are more fun to drive than the slower ones.
