I see it declining in the US. This is due to increasing cost, the aging of the manufacturers and racers and poor quality products.



Back in the day raceways and parts were plentiful. Today raceways are non-existent and it is a basement hobby. There are few if any stores and On-Line procurement is becoming more difficult. Sorry but Autoworld products are junk. AFX offers a good product but how long will they stay in business? DASH is considering retirement. BSRT and Viper produce a good product but the manufacturers age here is also an issue.


Lets not even discuss T-Jets. Sourcing parts for a competitive Fray car can be a real treasure hunt.
