      How Do I Maintain My Slot Car Set?

      Keeping your slot car set running optimally takes dedication and maintenance. The frequency at which you'll need to address wear and tear will depend heavily on how often you race, but some fundamentals should always be followed to keep the competition fierce. 

      • Always check the condition of your track before you race - make sure all the lane markings are debris-free, that the track is level for a fair contest, and that all connections between slots are secure. 
      • If necessary, tighten up any loose pieces with tiny screws or tweezers, like guide flags or guard rails. 
      • Ensure all electrical connections are secure so your cars have optimum power to zip around the track! 

      Taking these precautions will ensure you can keep having exciting races with minimal interruption - and see who wins race bragging rights in your house!
