Well, just spent a half hour down in our storage room, and couldn't find the set... pretty sure I brought it back to France at some point, since I remember testing it here, but maybe it's still down in my brother's crawl space! 

 

To be continued... and if anybody has some track, feel free to show it!

Yep, that's it Gene.... hmm, doesn't look like much of a slot there, shallow or not. Will have to find mine and check!

I don't really see a slot, period. I'm more confused than ever.

AMERICAN FLYER STOCK CAR RACE

In 1960 A.C. Gilbert introduced a slotless race set using roadway with S gauge rail embedded in it and a stock car with a magnetic pick up. This was produced for one year only.  We have a limited selection of parts and track available. 
Sorry but no parts diagrams or repair instructions are available.  We cannot assist in the identification and selection of the repair parts.  All parts are original and new as we got them from the A.C. Gilbert factory.

Well, still haven't found my set, but did find a clearer picture of the shallow slot, thanks to Bernard Sampson, in this THREAD (post 59).
