Scalextric is a brand of slot cars, those little toy cars that race around a groove in a track. They were released in 1960 (You should check out some of the vintage Scalextric sets if you haven’t seen them!). So these improvements to Scalextric sets will probably work with most slot cars but just so you are aware they are focused and design for Scalextric.
Before you can understand this particular car, you need to understand a little bit of the background surroundings its development.

Let’s start with the car because that’s where you can get the biggest benefits. Let’s start with the best mod, a new motor. The motor that comes with you normal cars runs at X revolutions per minute (rpm’s from now on) but you can get fiske of the same size that run at up to Y rpm. So you can take out your old motor and put a new one in. Of Course the fast your motor goes the fast your car!
A good set of gloves is essential for your hands comfort. Once you start cutting hedges or shoveling dirt you will find blisters forming on your hands.

And don’t worry. There are still several ideas in the pipeline. I’ll be participating in the “Trunk or Treat” event at our church this weekend (weather permitting), and our ’63 Chevy C-10 will be donning its Mater costume. I’ll write a follow up on that later this week, and I’m sure you’ll want to see how that goes. Plus, there are all kinds of exciting new cars, cool old cars, and other automotive-related news that I’m dying to tell you about.
As the last track on Elephant Shell, “The Baskervilles” has some moments on it that stands out. The choiring moments by Tokyo Police Club is worth mentioning and appear on some parts of the song and never fail to create an impact on the listeners. They would go, “Alright, we tried to help…” As we get further into The Baskervilles, the track starts to pick up and the music just sounds as lively as ever. The guitar and keyboards work their way out here. Even nearing the end, Dave increases his singing tone and yell, “A toast to the last of a dying breed, they’re crawling back to bed, they’re falling back to sleep” to the end. A very strong finish by Tokyo Police Club.
