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.

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.

You never know what's around that upcoming bend in 2018.

get indoors and race some slot cars. Browse around our
website as we have tons of different items for your racing pleasure and

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...

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!

customer, slot car fan and visitor to this website.

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!
