    Hey Guys, just came across this site for the Crosleys.....WOW Awesome. Now I'm a slotcar Manufacture and this is one of my newest rides that I'm putting out in the Slotcar world. We run on a 1/25 scale drag stripe (55ft). The timing system is run by a computer. This car is not ready for the track yet, but soon. Lets go Drag Racing

    What you think?
