Fellas,

 

 The Sept 6 C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club Meeting will be held at THE RACE PLACE in Farmingdale  N.J. at 7:30 PM.  I'll try to bring some Flex-1 chassis cars and run some laps...maybe downstairs on the BIG track ?

 

September's theme, slot car "stuff" that starts with the letter "S" for September.

 

Trivia: What slot car raceway runs a class where the old FLEXI-1 chassis' are still allowed to compete even though they are technically "vintage"?

Probably not the trivia answer you were looking for, but Trains & Lanes in Easton, PA will be running a Can-Am series starting in September using Flexi 1-5, Turbo and Astro, and other "vintage" flexis, using Rotor S16Ds.

No .... the closest I came was the right seat of a six passenger

 

It was a return business flight and I think the pilot wanted some company for the next fewer hours.

Fellas,

 

 Nice turnout considering the threatening weather. I ran some flexi cars on the "big" track, Rodney bought along some HO cars that I'll post photos of later.

Glenn stopped by and brought along an unpainted ultra rare "thingie body" . Stay tuned for a photo or two. A father/son team came by and ran some of their "hard bodied" cars on the Red Lightening.  An extended bench racing session brought the evening to a close...

The under bellies of the above cars. Along with what I believe is an old AJ's  T-Jet Brass handling belly pan ... pretty cool !
