Here, on the menu at your right, you can find many excellent how-to articles written by Steve Sawtelle and/or Dickie Pearson from Slot Car Corner. They touch many aspects of tuning a slot car and/or building tracks, driver stations and tables. Use the links on the right to access them directly.
Please note that all those articles were written many years ago and although the same principles apply today, the cars, parts and tools used in those articles may not be available anymore or have been replaced by something else. Thank you for your understanding.
