This $50k Model Race Track from Slot Mods Might be the Perfect Gift

If you’re working on a Christmas shopping list right now, you’d better stop a little and take a look at what Slot Mods has just revealed. This scenic model race track before you was specially designed to resemble those dramatic hill climb races, including signature scenery, cool details, racing features and promising to offer almost the same racing thrills.

Anyone with a fast car and the courage to go for it used to race on twisting mountain sides to see who could make it to the top first, and now you could do it with a tiny RC car. This made to order track includes a 6′ x 12′ wooden two-lane, 1/32 scale inspired recreation of a classic hill climb from the 1960s and 70s and benefits from everyone’s attention – or, at least, it will soon enough.

Handcrafted, period-correct structures, signage, and bridges create an authentic vibe, that’s complemented by six slot cars and two controllers as well as a lap timing or race management system & PC tablet. It’s true that your holiday season might get ruined the second you find out this track costs $50,000, but we think it’s totally worth it.

These toys are made to order and they usually take up to 3 or 4 months to build, which means the attention to detail and the materials involved are well worth the money. If this racetrack won’t deliver the proper thrills, I’m sure that looking at the bill once in a while will!
