I am sure that if you ever race your slot car outside of your own home, you bring your cars with you. If this is the case then it stands to reason that you should bring some basic equipment along as well. Slot cars can be fickle beasts and should be maintained and cared for. Though Slot Cars are very basic in their design, the way that the basic features are manipulated can mean the difference between winning and losing in a race. With a relatively small investment into some easily accessible tools you can turn a bad day at the track into a lap around the winners circle. Here is a good beginners list of things that should come to the track with you:
1 – Oil
2 – Jewelers screw driver kit mega888 download
3 – Jewelers file set
4 – Hobby pliers
5 – Hobby files
6 – Slot Cars
If you are just starting in your race career these basic items will help you make sure that every race experience is fun and exciting and just might make your car operate a little faster. With a few tweaks of the frame and a little filing here and there you can lower your lap times and really make the race exciting.
Remember, that when you purchase tools, quality is always better than quantity. Avoid purchasing cheap tools as that is exactly what you will get. It may cost a little more to buy a quality tool but it will pay dividends in the long run. Tools as with everything in life must be quality because the last thing that you want is to be at the track preparing for your next big race and have a tool fail on you because you wanted to save a little money. As you progress and learn more about the quirks of your particular car you will find that there are any number of different tools and devices that will help you to get an edge over your competition and you will know when you need a new or specialized tool because you will, at some point, need a tool that you do not have. Never fear, if you lose a race today due to the lack of the proper tool, there will be another race tomorrow. Now you know what you need to get started, this will certainly make your experience more enjoyable.
