Críticas:

Robert Schleicher's latest book will appeal to those interested in hard body home-set style slot racing and scenic plastic tracks. it dsen't cover BSCRA style cars or tracks. As with the author's previous books ' Slot car Bible', 'Slot Car Racing', 'Racing and Colllecting Slot Cars' the book features plenty of high quality photography well presented. if you enjoyed those books, you'll enjoy this one. Robert gives his views on the pors and cons of various digital lane-changing systems. once you have bought a digital system, you are locked into the sytem because of the compatability issues. If you are thinking of buying a digital system this section of the book will be of particular interest. he thn gives well illustrated instruction on how to fit digital chips to a variety of cars. There are also some interesting modifications to digital plastic track. There are plenty of modifications and tune up tips for plastic chassis cars nicely illustrated with photos. he looks at converting static kits to slot cars, and scratch building with resin bodies. A large section of the book is given over to testing standard and modified home-set cars. he measuers the effect of diffrent makes of plastic track. he also tests with different tyres and different levels of magnet traction. Considerablt space is devoted to layouts for palstic track, the emphasis being on tracks suitable for home use rather than club tracks. The author is an entusiast for scenic tracks and there are many pictures of photogenic scenic tracks although this book dosen't devote much space to building scenery. --Slot Car Racing News, December, 2008

Reseña del editor:

Robert Schleicher wrote the book on slot car racing-literally. In the three short years since Schleicher's Slot Car Racing: Tips, Tricks & Track Plans was published, the hobby has been virtually transformed by new products and technologies. This new volume, a perfect complement to its predecessor, brings readers and racers up to date, offering a concise, comprehensive overview of slot car racing's developments, along with expert, practical guidance for putting this information to good use. A primer on the latest digital and analog developments for both 1/32 and HO scales, Schleicher's book delivers the lowdown on building cars from individual components on ready-to-race chassis, as well as popular tune-up tips to get even more speed and better handling out of today's cars. Schleicher also provides track tests of 70 cars and a slot-car shootout featuring 23 more vehicles. Finally, Schleicher includes nearly 50 track plans: 14 tabletop-size plans for Scalextric, Classic, Carrera, Sport, SCX, and Ninco brand track; 14 plans modeled on real circuits like Watkins Glen, Monaco, Spa-Francorchamps, Sears Point, and the Bahrain and Shanghai F1 courses; and 17 4x8-foot HO scale plans. Illustrated throughout with color photography and track plan line art, this is the book that no serious slot car racer can afford to be without.
