CALLING ALL CARS!!

By: Marc Natividad

Hey, where are all the H.O. slot car racers here in Los Angeles??  We are very small group of racers here in West Los Angeles and as far as I know, there aren't too many others in my area.  On the East Coast, there are far more racers, racing clubs, and tracks.  Weather conditions perhaps is why we are outnumbered as it is the perfct indoor hobby.

H.O. slot car racing is still one of the least expensive hobbies comparatively to 1/32 or 1/24 scale slot car racing.  Even though electronic devices have become a substitute for entertainment, H.O. slot car racing promotes group social behavior, mechanics, physics, and eye hand coordination.  Each racer must focus and be in control of thier own car on the track.  Speed of the car is not as important as the control of the  car.  If you fall off the track, precious laps will be lost as the other racers that are staying on the track continue to increase their lap numbers.

More experienced racers like to build and optomize their own cars.  By just learning how to tear down and rebuild your car is the best way of understanding how it works.  If you ever have a problem with it, you can quickly identify it an make the necessary repairs.  Having a more experienced racer close by will also help you with your problems!

What's it going to take to make H.O. slot car racing big again here in Los Angeles?  Well, there are always various social media platforms, but I prefer the tried and true method of just getting out there.  We are also in need of more tracks in our area that are willing to host a race or two.  It's a large investment at first putting a track together as well as having the necessary space to accomidate a small group and the proper storage of your table.

You can get your neighborhood involved by having an OPEN HOUSE racing day or form your own H.O. slot car racing club.   I host BUILDING days where we all get together and discuss how we build our cars and which cars we may want to race for future events.
