How fast do 1:32 slot cars go?
Fastest scaled-speed of a prototype slot car model What 983.88 mile(s) per hour Where United Kingdom (Chatsworth Derbyhire) The fastest slot car was a Scalextric Honda F1 replica, which reached a speed of 983.88 scale mph (1,583.4 scale kph) when it was controlled by Dallas Campbell (UK) of The Gadget Show at the Chatsworth Rally Show, Chatsworth, UK, on 6 June 2008.
- Scale MPH” is the standard measurement for speed records on slot cars.
- Since the majority of cars are built to a 1/32 scale, their speed is measured over a distance that is 1/32 of a mile (165 feet).
- In standard speed terms, this car managed an impressive 30.94 MPH – meaning it would be breaking the speed limit in residential areas in the UK! All records listed on our website are current and up-to-date.

What is better than Scalextric?
Carrera – – Better Quality – Wider Track is better for Racing and allows larger 1:24 Cars – Wider Track Slots (easier to put the car back on track) – Track is stronger and better for raised sections – Track connections are more secure – Wireless Throttles are rechargeable and have their own charging dock – Very easy to adjust car settings and start races, without the use of additional software or an APP – Track can accommodate 1:32 & 1:24 Cars to offer two entirely different racing experiences – Better functionality for serious racing (Sector times etc.)
Ultimately both systems work on the same basic principle and you are likely to be happy with either. However there are several scenarios where we would recommend one over the other. Sets less than £60 for Children – We would recommend Carrera GO! This range is significantly larger than Scalextric’ “Micro” range, with a good selection of Track Extensions and extra cars available to purchase.

What is the fastest slot car size?
1:24 Scale – As one of the largest slot car sizes, the 1:24 scale is a favorite for racing. Individuals commonly race these cars on large, 8-lane commercial tracks, and speeds on top road racing cars can reach up to 70 mph. The length of these cars is about 7 to 8 inches or 18 to 20 centimeters.
There are several classes of 1:24 slot cars. Most either have a commercial Lexan body on a lightweight laser-cut chassis or a hard body on a hand-built brass chassis. The hard body cars have intricate details, much like the 1:32 scale. The Lexan bodies can also be detailed, but their main focus is speed.
If you are looking for a realistic and fast slot car ideal for racing, especially on a commercial or professional club track, the 1:24 scale is the way to go.

Is 1 32 scale the same as HO?
MODELING IN SCALE – Conversion Charts, Sizes, FAQs Scale Modeling Dimensions FAQ’s Question: I have Department 56 Dickens Village Houses and want to look at scale modeling and model railroad train accessories to add to my scene. The people are from 2.5 to 2.75 tall and houses are up to 9.25 tall.
Is there a train or hobby scale that will fit this scale so that I can interchange the two? I did not know where to get the information so thought I would try you. Thank you so much for your help! Answer: Trying to scale model with Dept 56 is very difficult as, even within the line, nothing matches! The houses are approximately HO or S scale.
The people are approximately G scale. The Dept 56 train is approximately O scale. The Dept 56 autos are slightly larger than O scale. The best way for us to help you is with this bit of info. In real life, a door is about 7 ft tall. In real life, a man is about 6 ft tall. Thus, Dept.56’s Dickens Village is all over the place as far as scale goes! You need to make a decision as to whether you want to continue to mix and match as Department 56 does, or if you want to be more consistant in scale and go for matching the scale, to the scale of the bulk of the Dept.56 Dickens Village houses and buildings.
If you choose the later, you’ll either want HO or O Scale, depending on the scale of most of your houses and buildings. Question: I have a dollhouse that I have been working on for awhile. I am not sure what scale furniture to use in my dollhouse. Is there a simple way to figure this out? Please help,
Answer: A six foot tall person will be 11-12″ tall in a PLAYSCALE “Barbie Size”, Fashion Doll Scale dollhouse. The dollhouse doors will be approximately 12-14″ high A six foot tall person will be 6″ tall in a 1″ Scale dollhouse. The dollhouse doors will be approximately 7″ high A six foot tall person will be 3″ tall in a 1/2″ Scale dollhouse.
- The dollhouse doors will be approximately 3.5″ high Question: I collect model diecast cars in the 1/24 scale from Franklin and Danbury Mint.
- I would like to build some scale period garages for display, but am confused about scales.
- What scale would “1/24 scale” translate into for ordering miniature and railroad components and supplies? Would that be “G” scale otherwise known as “1/2″ scale? Answer: Yes.”G” scale.
G scale is a broad scale. In model railroading, there are a number of train and model railroading manufacturers that make trains and accessories in what they call “G” Scale, but they actually vary is scale between manufacturers, from 1:20, 1:22, 1:24 & 1:25 (1/2″ scale).
Because 1/2 Scale or (G) Scale or 1:24 Scale items are hard to find, most hobbiest and scale modelers will mix and match the use of items across the spectrum of the scale. Question: Do you have any windows and doors to fit 1/6 scale houses? I am building a Barbie house and I am having a hard time finding the right size items, especially doors? Answer: A Barbie Doll or Fashion Doll will be 11-12″ tall, which is considered a PLAYSCALE “Barbie Size”, Fashion Doll (2″=1′) Scale dollhouse.
The dollhouse doors will be approximately 12-14″ high. Refer to our PLAYSCALE Doll House Supplies pages. The scale numbers mean nothing if I don’t have the dimensions of the original item. I am looking at the scale items at your website from 121 Scale to 1:160 Scale and have no idea how to relate to these numbers.
Please provide guidance. Here is the best way for us to help you to easily understand “scale” with this bit of information below. Example: In real life, a door is about 7 ft tall. In real life, a man is about 6 ft tall. So. In N scale, (1:160) a man is about,375″ (3/8″) tall. (1/16″=1 foot) In N scale, (1:160) a door is about,44″ (7/16″) tall.
(1/16″=1 foot) In HO scale, (1:87), a man is about,75″ (3/4″) tall. (1/8″=1 foot) In HO scale, (1:87), a door is about,875″ (7/8″) tall. (1/8″=1 foot) In S scale, a man is about 1.125″ (1-1/8″) tall. (3/16″=1 foot) In O scale, (1:48), (1/4″ Scale), a man is about 1.5″ tall.
- 1/4″=1 foot) In O scale, (1:48), (1/4″ Scale),a door is about 1.75″ tall.
- 1/4″=1 foot) In G scale, (1:22), a man is about 2.75″ tall.
- Approx.3/8″=1 foot) In G scale, (1:22), a door is about 3.25″ tall.
- Approx.3/8″=1 foot) In 1/25 scale, (1/2″ Scale), a man is about 3″ tall.
- 1/2″=1 foot) In 1/25 scale, (1/2″ Scale), a door is about 3.5″ tall.
(1/2″=1 foot) In 121 scale, (1″ Scale), a man is about 6″ tall. (1″=1 foot) In 121 scale, (1″ Scale), a door is about 7″ tall. (1″=1 foot) So, if you are looking at a miniature building which has a standard front door of a height of approximately 1″ high, then that miniature building will be approximately “HO” scale. If you are wanting to build a scale model of your house, which is approximately 50 feet wide, and you want the model to only be approximately 12 inches wide, then you would need to model the house in “O” Scale.

MODEL RAILROADING explained.
Z SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:220. Looking at the front of a typical Z Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 0.75″ High x 0.5″ Wide.) Z scale was developed in by Märklin in the early 1970’s, and is the smallest of all the working models – so tiny that a little layout will even fit in a briefcase. Most Z trains and equipment are based on European railways. N SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:160. Looking at the front of a typical N Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 1″ High x 0.625″ Wide.) This scale is an ideal choice for apartments or anyone with limited space. N-scale trains are easy to store when not in use and are ruggedly built for trouble-free operation. The small size is fine for teenagers and adults; younger children will need an adult to help to set up or take down a set. HO SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:87. Looking at the front of a typical HO Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 2″ High x 1.5″ Wide.) “HO” means “half – o;” models are half the size of O Scale. HO is the most popular scale with the greatest selection of sets and accessories, as it allows lots of railroad action in a small area. Children may need adult help to set up or take down the set. S SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:64. Looking at the front of a typical S Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 2.75″ High x 2″ Wide.) (American Flyer) S Scale trains appeared in the 1950s (American Flyer was one of several popular brands) as houses grew smaller. Its chief advantage was size; larger than HO for more detail and improved reliability, but smaller than O Scale so less room was needed for a layout. Today, the selection of kits and assembled items is small, but this has made S Scale popular with modelers who enjoy the challenges of scratchbuilding and kitbashing. O SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:48. Looking at the front of a typical O Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 4″ High x 2.5″ Wide.) (also On30, 027, O-31) (Lionel, MTH, Williams, K-Line, Weaver) O Scale trains also include “On30” Sets, which are O Scale models that run on a narrower track – just 30 scale inches wide. They’re ideal for use with Christmas Villages. “O27″ gauge sets will take tighter curves – which makes these O Scale sets a good choice when space for bigger trains is limited. (The number 27 refers to the 27″ diameter of a full circle of track.) If you grew up with Lionel trains, you’ll remember that they were O Scale models. Ruggedly built, they’re a good choice for youngsters or permanent layouts. Many sets feature animated accessories. G SCALE – (Proportion Ratio 1:22.5. Looking at the front of a typical G Scale train engine or boxcar, the dimensions are an average 8″ High x 5” Wide.) (LGB, Aristo, Bachmann G) Big models, sometimes called “Large Scale” trains. Sizes range from 1/22.5 to 1/25 and also includes #1 gauge (1/32 Scale) equipment. The largest electrically powered models, starter sets set up in small areas. Some brands can be used outdoors, in garden layouts. The large size of G-scale trains allows for rugged handling by younger children. Many models have working parts that enhance play valu
MODEL CAR BUILDING – by scale SLOT CAR RACING – by scale
“HO Scale” – A generalized size in the slot car world. Originally 1:76-1:87, in the 1960’s, now usually closer to 1:64 scale. HO Slot Cars vary in size, running from 1:87 (generally the older cars) to 1:64 in scale; but they all run on HO track of approximately the same width, and are generically referred to as “HO” slot cars. A typical HO slot car’s length is from 2.5 to 3.5 inches (5.5–8 cm). As with HO scale trains, one can create a very large race course, in scale, in much less space than the larger scale slot car sizes. The HO race cars are not typically advised for younger children as the cars are smaller, more delicate with operating parts that can easily be broken, if not handled appropriately. Many manufacturers advise for ages 12 years and older. Though there is HO racing on commercial and shop-tracks, most HO racing occurs on home racetracks. “1:43 Scale” – This scale of slot cars and race sets, introduced around 2005, are generally marketed as children’s toys. An average 1:43 slot car’s length would be 4.3″ (10.9 cm). More recently, this scale has had an increased following, and at least one manufacturer has come out with “digital” version two-lane race sets, allowing for individual controlling of multiple cars in the same lane (slot), that can merge, switch lanes and pass, running up to 6 slot cars on a two lane track with 6 separate hand controllers. “1:32 Scale or 1/32” – This scale of slot cars are approximately twice the size of “HO” scale; and larger than the “toy” 1:43 scale. Very popular with both children and adults, the 1:32 Scale slot cars are more durable than HO Scale. The 1:32 Scale slot cars generally have a lot of detail and are truer to the scale and detail to design of the “real thing”. Because of the detail, many enthusiasts will just collect the cars, similar to diecast model collectors. Because the 1:32 Scale slot cars are twice the size of HO scale, it would require twice the space to do the same race course layout that would be accomplished in the HO scale. However, most slot car manufacturers offer a large variety of very challenging and fast race course layout designs, with plenty of straight aways and curves, right out of the box, that will easily fit in a 4′ x 8′ area. Though this scale slot car racing is more suited to home-sized race courses, these scale cars are also widely raced on commercial tracks, in hobby shops or in clubs. A 1:32 car averages 5 to 6 inches (13–15 cm). Scalextric, SCX and Carrera have designed straights and curved track pieces to accomplish race track layouts with straight tracks and curves that are 8 lanes wide. Many slot car racing enthusiasts do this to replicate commercial raceway layouts, and to allow more family and friend racers to participate at the same time. More recently, with the popularity and growth of interest in this scale, at least three manufacturers, including Scalextric, SCX and Carrera, have come out with “digital” version two-lane race sets, allowing for individual controlling of multiple cars in the same lane (slot), that can merge, switch lanes and pass, running up to 6 slot cars on a two lane track with 6 separate hand controllers. “1:24 Scale or 1/24” – This scale of slot cars are the largest slot cars commonly raced. A typical 1:24 slot car might be 7 to 8 inches long (18–20 cm). Unless you have a lot of room, or a big basement, 1:24 cars require a course so relatively large, that it is impractical for many home enthusiasts. So most serious 1:24 racing is done at commercial or club tracks.

Is it better to bet bigger on slot machines?
There usually was a disproportionate jump in the top jackpot if you bet maximum coins. For nearly all online slots and video slots, that’s not true. Pay table returns are proportionate, meaning the average payback percentage is the same regardless of whether you’re betting one coin per line or the max.

What happened to Scalextric?
History – Early Scalextric cars, c.1957. Models represented are Maserati 250F (left) and Ferrari 375 Grand Prix (right) The forerunner to Scalextric was Scalex, which Francis first produced through the company Minimodels Ltd which he had founded in 1947.
The company was based in London and made tinplate toys and models. Early products included the Startex toy car range and the very popular Scalex, which was introduced in 1952. Scalex was a range of toy racing cars with motors which were activated by pulling out the steering wheel. In 1952, Minimodels moved to a larger factory in New Lane, Havant to meet the growing demand for the toy cars.
At the peak of its popularity, over 7,000 Scalex models were being produced weekly. By 1956, the novelty of clockwork racing cars had worn off and sales began to fall. Eventually the future of the company and its one hundred employees was threatened. In an attempt to revive his company’s flagging fortunes, Fred Francis began to look at alternatives.
- He was inspired by seeing model car racing tracks, but wanted to develop the player’s control of the car so as to increase the sense of competition.
- He experimented by putting small electric motors into Scalex cars and running them on model railway track.
- Next he introduced rubber slotted track and gave the cars a ‘gimbal’ wheel to pick up the electric current in the groove of the track.
Original tin-plate cars had one hard plastic rear wheel and one rubber-tyred wheel, with gave different handling characteristics for left and right corners. Power was supplied by batteries hidden in a little cardboard hut, with players having their own on-off button to control their cars.
- Therefore Scalex-electric became Scalextric,
- Scalextric was unveiled at the Harrogate Toy Fair in 1957 to immediate acclaim.
- It appealed to both adults and children, combining speed, competition and the glamour of motor racing.
- Demand for the toy was immense and the Minimodels factory struggled to keep up with the orders.
In 1958, Fred Francis sold the Minimodels company to (who operated as “Tri-ang”). The popularity of Scalextric continued. In 1960, plastic bodies replaced the original tinplate, and in 1961, production moved to a new factory in the Leigh Park area of Havant.

Which expansion slot is the fastest?
One bottleneck common to both ISA and PCI slots is the need to share a communications path with other expansion slots on the board. Accelerated Graphics Port slots streamline communication between the GPU and memory by eliminating the shared path. This direct path allows the GPU to run at higher clock speeds than are possible with standard ISA or PCI slots. Motherboards can only support one AGP slot, so if additional graphics cards are required, they must be installed in other slot types on the motherboard. AGP expansion cards are available in four versions: 1X, 2X, 4X and 8X. AGP-8X is the fastest, with a transfer rate of 2,100 megabytes per second. The cards are also available in three slot configurations designed to be powered from the motherboard by 1.5 volts, 3.3 volts or both. Not all AGP cards will work on all AGP motherboards so care must be taken when purchasing these graphics cards.
