    I don’t know if you guys can see this on Facebook. I hope you can. I’ve had one of these racing sets Ho aurora since I’m 10 years old. It’s amazing the lengths some will go with creating a video. I was amazed when I watched this. These HO toys got me really hooked on cars. I hope you can see this.

    Hey Mario

    That was great; thanks for posting. I never got into the HO scale slot cars, I preferred the 1/25 where you could buy the clear bodies to paint on the inside but also there were a multitude of different motors, wheels and gearing to use along with building your own chassis with brass tubing. The local hobby store of course had the road course and then built a large figure 8 track. They held races every Saturday night and the last races of the night were drag races on the straight section of the figure 8. The cars would be lined up, the power to the track turned off and then the power would be turned on (no reaction time for a count down) and a soft barrier at the end to stop the cars. What was nice was being able to change gears and tire diameter.

    I spent a lot of time with the HO racing sets as an only child with Parents that constantly fought. I went into my own little world upstairs in my room with the big track layout. Rebuilding cars with hopup kit parts and fixing burnt out motors and chassis that melted from overheating. It was so much fun and i treasured it so much that I would dismantle and hide it when we had company so nobody could break my cars or tracks. I still have that and more. I found tractor trailers back in 1980 in Florida at a kaybee hobby. One was like the shell tanker in the video.
    This is why I liked that video so much. My childhood flashed back.

    Hey Vall, this two tone paint looks pretty neat. With the right choice of colors yours would be pretty cool.
