What Are Slot Cars?
A slot car is a moving replica vehicle made to scale. These collector items can be used in competitions using tracks. Fanatics place slot cars on tracks showcasing special grooves so that they stay on the course.
The origin of slot cars dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The craze boomed, with kids and adults taking an interest in collecting and racing slot cars as production capabilities evolved.
There was a period of experimentation with slot cars in the 1930s. At this time, manufacturers placed tiny combustion engines inside the vehicles, allowing them to move independently along tracks. However, this practice saw a significant shift by the 1950s. Slot car companies began using electrical currents to help replica vehicles move along courses.
Advancements to slot car tracks made it possible for several people to race on the same track. Users hold small controllers to regulate the flow of electricity moving to slot cars, which affects traveling speed. The 1960s and 1970s helped the slot car world expand further as manufacturers created more intricate tracks for hobbyists to set up indoors.
A core group of enthusiasts keeps the slot car market alive today, and some modern slot cars use wireless digital technology.
