Now now, we're just having a little discussion.

I think people are willing to help, we just need to agree on what to do.
If one guy sends a Johnny Lightning Thunderjet and another a Tomy Turbo SRT, that won't be much fun. (One car does 500 scale MPH, the other, about 2000 and has dual high power traction magnets.)

Offical arm chair slotcar driver.lol.... Below is a pic of the car I build for my Daughter and a small portion of the Routed track I had to Leave behind it was A 20x7 1/32 slotcars Oval lanes were close on the back stretch to get that pinching affect and they widened on the front to get clean timing light triggers..
no room for one of this size now so were going with the hollow door HO scale.

Hey Dude,seriously? Don't judge the book by the cover. You can not expect individuals to all be perfect and hence should not judge the group as a whole! seems you lack a bit of patience and understanding. You get the benefit of the doubt from me as I understand your health issues and job situation are frustrating.
