Welcome to the new year, the online store and website is operational so browse around.  Feel free to put in an order, ask questions, etc.  Remember most of these items are hand-made with some off-the-shelf parts so orders will take time to fill.  Thanks to all our visitors to the site and ones who have ordered in the past.

Keep that trigger pulled!

Welcome to a new decade - Happy New Year!  Rolling into the year and such.  No major updates as of now but still trucking along.  We appreciate the business and loyalty, etc. and hope to have some stuff coming down the pipeline soon for our slot car and dirt track racing customers that is fresh and new, never know what is cooking in the lab for the race track.

October 29, 2019

Don't fret but you'll notice a few deletions and price change throughout the site.  This does not mean the site is going away but adjusting with the times as supplies of certain parts, chassis, etc. get harder to find and things get more expensive.  We strive our best to keep prices reasonable.  You'll see some more changes in the near future but nothing to worry about.  A big thank you goes out to our customers over the years and aspire to keep service you related slot car products and more into 2020 and beyond.  You never know what we might reveal in 2020.

Happy New Year!  Working on the Parma and others supply shortage so maybe, hopefully in the future they can be back again in the catalog or with much improved versions - we don't have any news as of this date but will post an update as soon as we know anything.  For now, I'll work on supplying substitutes for those slot car items.  We hope you stick by us as we roll along through 2019.  Thank you to all our fans and customers over the years, we wouldn't be able to be here without you especially Mr. Dana Marsden as he juggles all the duties.

July 4, 2018

Supplier Shortage!  Our website is being updated to reflect the scarcity of Mattel Tyco 440X2 HO chassis and now sudden unavailability of Parma products.  We apologize for the inconvenience and will try to find other sources / substitutions especially for the Parma items.  Please excuse the mess as we go through the entire site and update our online store shopping cart system to reflect these changes.  Except for a few items most of our cars or RTR items will be body only until we find another source of chassis.  Do check out the H&R Racing chassis in the parts section as we got some stock of those in as a replacement for 1/24 scale and we're working on finding something similar in 1/32 to the Womp chassis.  Thank you for your understanding.

Summer is almost over which means that the Fall season will soon be here at Hot Laps Racin' which means time to get indoors and race some slot cars.  Browse around our website as we have tons of different items for your racing pleasure and even for model cars and other projects.  Remember to put your orders in early so we have enough time to get them processed and shipped out especially the custom made orders.  If there's anything you wish to suggest we carry or provide, feel free to send an email.  Thanks again for your patronage all these years.

Nothing much to report from trackside here at Hot Laps Racin' but don't fret because we're still dishing out our products and thinking up some new possibilities.  Our slot car line is still going strong so stay tuned for more good fun stuff.  Put your orders in so you have things to tinker around with when that white stuff starts to fall and the cold weather creeps in.

February 28, 2015

You're all been waiting and waiting but you still have to be in suspense because our R&D department is suffering from a case of cabin fever.  Luckily, we still have our production line going to check out all our cool and hot dirt drag racing slot car products.  More to come so stay tuned...

October 24, 2014

I've been busy and haven't had the time to do any updates.  The fall season is here which means slot car racing during the cold and snowy months of winter.  Stay indoors and race some of our modifieds, sprints and late models.  We offer many different styles and scales in our online catalog store.  Check them out and while you are at it, get some extras for your racing friends.  There's something coming in the air for 2015 so stay glued to this site and page for more details.  You never know what might fly in!

A brief update to our links page and a note that we're gearing up for the fall / winter season.  Prepare yourself for what the Hot Laps Racin' crew is experimenting with regarding slot cars.  You just never know what might come out of the slot car laboratory!  I would like to personally thank each and every customer, slot car fan and visitor to this website.

January 5, 2013

Happy New Year to all our new and repeat customers here at Hot Laps Racin'.  I really appreciate all your support over the past year even though it has been a slow one for 2012 but we're ready to gear up for 2013.  There might even be some surprises in store for the slot car enthusiast so keep checking back.

April 6, 2012

A reminder since most of our items are custom produced in house.  Orders will take anywhere from six to eight weeks to process before shipping.  I will do my best to get your slot car racing order out to you as soon as possible.

January 1, 2012

Happy New Year to all our great slot car customers.  Thank you for all your business and support over the years and for many more to come.  I hope to bring more new items for the slot car enthusiast out this year along with some surprises so be sure to check back often.

March 28, 2011

Spring is finally here but the slot car racing is still in full swing so check out our entire website for all the goods.  We were able to get a restock of the Resin Midget Motor #GF14 located in this 1/32 1/24 slot car parts section so these are now available again for your slot car projects.

We are no longer carrying certain HO resin bodies, kits and RTR cars as they will be totally produced and sold in-house by that company so we are unable to offer them.  They have already been taken off the site.

February 1, 2011

Some more NASTrucks have been added plus we got newly updated paint schemes for our 1/32 Sprint Cars including a new STP #2 Midget 1/32 slot car offering with either a 16D-style Commercial or Home Set motor.  More coming soon!

January 17 - 18 - 19, 2011

Welcome to our "Current News and Updates" part of our website which we will try and keep you updated on what is going on with slot car website.  This includes new items for the slot car enthusiast along with various other updates and important news concerning the website.  We wish to thank you for a great fantastic ten+ years online!

Be sure to check out our new 1/32 scale NASTrucks available as RTRs, body only and as an unassembled kit with clear untrimmed body, decal sheet, interior and resin driver's head.  Here's your chance to get some trucks for some oval action on your 1/32 slot car track.

The HO Sprint Cars section and 1/32 Dirt Modifieds have also been refreshed with slightly newer paint schemes, bodies and cars so don't miss those while looking through the site.
