What is my definition of a “Slot Car Control Freak" ; It's that guy that always wears a Super Tires tee shirt and constantly complains that he doesn't have a Super Tires cap.

Default At first glance it looked to me like someone I saw once.

He was a slot car controller freak. I mean I'm sure he had more money in his controller than in any car he ever raced. And there was a secret little black box halfway down the cord with I think batteries in it and when he put his car on the track it ran backwards. Someone said those were his power brakes. Well it was awesome how deep into the corners and sharp turns he could go. Me, I still use the old red and black button from my old Strombecker set. But then I just came down to the old raceway to meet the other freaks.

Now that I re-read the words and it asks for "control" freak, so just ignore what I said up there. Sadly, it means the guy who has to be in on every rule and takes this hobby of fun way way too seriously. Unfortunately there is one apple like him in every barrel. He may not know it but he is chasing the clean competition and fun lovers away. Just as he probably has done to every hobby or sport he becomes involved in. I hope he takes up golf next.

Let’s hear your story. Almost every slot car club has a
“Slot Car Control Freak” or two.

We have some good stories so far and we are sure that
there are a few more out there.
