Get your racetrack on.

How sweet is this? Restoration Hardware offers up this adult slot car racetrack. Featuring over 63 feet of track, the set comes with two intricately-detailed reproductions of the Shelby Daytona Coupes seen in the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, each of which use high-conductivity phosphor bronze shoes and a 22-volt power pack deliver awesome speed. Also included are two controllers, a grandstand, and pit.

My parents bought a racetrack for us when we were kids and we LOVED it. Ours had glow strips that you taped on. And I remember getting the cars to go so fast they’d fly off into the air!

  1. Man, I had a couple different slot car tracks when I was growing up. I had one with the glow strips on it too. You could make the track go up the walls. I could sit there and race those things forever.

  2. I have my old one in my closet right now!

  3. I want one so bad. I used to take the glow strips off the track and put them under my sheets. I had the Trans-Am from smokey and the bandit.

  4. Dude, that’s awesome! We had a track too. Do you remember how to clean the contact points on the cars? Yep! A pencil eraser. ‘Member the smell? Those little rubber tires? Gosh, I miss that.
