    Interesting article in Ars Technica today regarding slot car racing in NYC.  Some of the cars featured in photo strip are a real throwback, giving new meaning to putting your car in the slot!

    Step inside NYC’s competitive slotcar racing scene

    At least once a month, an unassuming storefront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn transforms into a fierce battleground. Inside, a small crowd cheers and groans as miniature cars dart across a winding track, batteries buzzing as the tiny vehicles twist and turn like Formula 1 cars running through the streets of Monaco.

    Keep it simple.
    Make it work.
