James May And The Slot Car Land Speed Record

Wherein Captain Slow assembles a scale measured-mile and attempts to have slot-car racers break the late, great Don Vesco's 2001 wheel-driven land speed record of 458 mph. Can they break it? Who knows? Can we get enough James May? Never.

I've had Scaleys before (as an adult), but when I went to buy another one recently, went Ninco. They have a rally loop set up that lets you run a layout using one car, running both lanes. That and their little lap timer bridge unit pretty much sold me.

The Ninco cars have weaker magnets too, so you can really hang the ass out.

Here's where I do my mail order:
