Long-time HO racer Paul Shoemaker is a Slotblog member who posts here occasionally. I recently became aware of this two-part article he originally posted to his now-decommissioned Speed Inc Slot Car HO website in February 2010. The follow-up article appeared in February 2012. That website was in 2019 replaced with his new site: https://speedincslotcars.com/.


This is much more than just a 'How To' article; it is a tour de force of the history of the pancake HO cars and a fabulous reference of the many models and variations of these cars that were produced. I'll paste a single page here to illustrate this.

If you're in to the pancake HO slot cars, you should read and download these PDFs!

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
