Out of State Travel will likely require additional funds to cover the cost of a Hotel, so a few of us doing this across the country have teamed up to try and help with travel costs.

READY TO RACE DIGITAL SLOT CARS AT YOUR NEXT EVENT?
To make it happen, I need the following:
1 PLEASE COLLECT THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION
  • Where is your event to be held?
  • What is the purpose of your event? Birthday/Fundraiser/TradeShow/CompanyParty/Etc
  • How large is the event, how many people? Will it be busy non stop, or just a few passer bys?
  • What Age Range will most of the racers be? Mostly Children or Adults? Ages 6 & Up Please
  • Is the event private or accessible to the public?
  • Is the event indoors or outdoors? (outdoors requires shelter/tent)
  • How much floor space is available for the track? At least 10x20 Foot recommended
  • Is there a power outlet near the track? (110v Required)
  • What size and how many tables are available on site? Tables Are Required
  • What do you need the track for? Booth Attraction/Fundraiser with Ticket Sales/Just For Fun/Child or Adult Passifier/Organized Racing With Prizes and Entry Fees
  • Do I need to bring my own lunch or dinner?
  • Anything else you can think of...
  • 2 E-MAIL THE INFORMATION TO mail@SlotCarRental.com
    E-mail is the best way to contact me, however if you really need to, you may call my personal cell (586) 850-2682. I will still need at least one email with all the details and contacts for record purposes, this also serves as a sort of contract between us for the event. E-mail allows images to be sent, it avoids playing voice mail tag, and I can respond at 3am if I happen to be awake, as I often am.
    3 I WILL RETURN AN E-MAIL WITH A QUOTE
    After a few emails we will eventually come to an agreement and I will understand what your event needs, and I will send off a price quote, possibly even some custom diagrams of the track area.
    4 PAY A DEPOSIT TO RESERVE THE DATE OF YOUR EVENT
    If you decide to go through with the event, I recommend reserving your date ASAP. To reserve your date, I only need you to pre pay, as a deposit, the travel costs that your event requires, mileage and hotel costs if required. If you cancel with less than 30 days before your event, $50 of this is non-refundable. In addition, any amount spent on travel that cannot be refunded, is also non-refundable.
    5 LAST MINUTE CHANGES & CONFIRMATION
    I will email or call a day or two before the event, to confirm the date and time. This is the last chance for any last minute changes. If you do not hear from me before the event, contact me immediately!
    6 HAVE THE SPACE AND TABLES READY BEFORE I ARRIVE
    Due to recent medical complications I need to ask everyone to please have tables setup and ready for the track before I arrive. I have reduced my prices because of this, and this will reduce setup time. The track is customizable so any size or combination of flat and level tables or staging will work. The track needs at least 6 x 12 foot total table surface. 8 x 15 foot is a good functional size, and anything over 8 x 20 foot would be overkill. As long as tables are provided and setup for us, we will not charge for our standard 2 hour setup time. If you or the facility hosting your event does not have tables, they can be rented cheaply from other companies. I am currently looking for a company that I can call regulary to supply tables, and working on a custom design for a table that is easier for me to get out of my basement, load, unload, transport, setup, etc...
    7 I WILL ARRIVE EARLY TO ASSEMBLE THE TRACK
    I will arrive about 1 to 2 hours before your scheduled race start time to allow time to setup the track. This is only enough time to setup the track itself, so if the tables are not ready to go, I will have less time to setup. For some large events, it may be better for me to setup the day before.
    8 I STAY TO OPERATE THE TRACK FOR THE ENTIRE EVENT

    9 YOU MAY REQUEST MORE TIME DURRING THE EVENT
    If you wish to add more race time for your guests, you will need to catch me before this time expires, as I will soon begin to disassemble the track.
    10 PAYMENT IS DUE WHEN YOUR RACE TIME EXPIRES
    When your requested race time has expired, I will finish the current race and begin taking down the track. This is when the remaining charges are due. CASH, CHECK, PAYPAL.
    WHAT IS A DIGITAL SLOTCAR?
    Slot cars have been around for over 50 years, and were very popular in the 1960s and 1970s. The classic slotcars that most people are familiar with are controlled by crude hand controllers that would simply change the amount of electricity flowing through a pair of metal rails to change a car's speed. Each car requires its own pair of metal rails on the track to function, so most home tracks can only run two cars at a time, which lacks all the competitive fun of a real race. Professional tracks that can run at least 6 cars, need to be wider to have a lane for each car, and often take up an entire store space just to have an oval track, or a track with only 2 or 3 turns.

    Digital SlotCar tracks and controllers are similar in appearance to classic slotcars, but they add a whole lot more to the scale racing experience. Digital SlotCars are still powered by metal rails on the track, however their speed is now controlled by a computer chip onboard the car. This allows multiple cars to operate independently even if they are on the same pair of metal rails. Most digital slot car tracks are built with two lanes, each with its own pair of metal rails. At various locations on the track there are cross-over track sections that combine these two pairs of rails, so that they are really only one as far as the electronics go. These cross-over sections give cars the chance to change lanes and pass other cars, which can be done at the push of a button on the hand controllers. Digital tracks often take advantage of their ability to change lanes, and have an extra lane setup as a short cut, or even as the pit row for playes to refuel their cars.

    NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 6
    Not recommended for children under 6, due to small parts and complexity., although a parent can help them run a car around, as long as they keep it going. An inactive controller is always available for toddlers, they can hold it and watch other player's cars go around, this usually does the trick. Please do not allow toddlers at the track without a parent to keep them from grabbing and taking the cars.

    VARIABLE DIFFICULTY
    SUPER-EASY: Setup for young rookie drivers to run at full throttle with fewer crashes.

    CHALLENGING: Cars will run off the track if you go too fast in the corners, and may run out of fuel if you do not use the pit lane.

    CHOICE OF CORVETTE OR NASCAR TYPE CARS
    Because I just converted to the new and better system. This new system is limited to what type of car bodies are compatible. More will become available as I convert old cars, and new products are released.

    TRACK CAN BE SETUP OUTDOORS IF SHELTERED
    The track can be setup out doors so long as there is a tent to provide shelter from rain and sun light.
