For those that are over 30 years old, well before XBox, PS2, WII..etc, the main form of indoor entertainment for me and most of my friends back then was a slot car set. if you were not so rich, you had a 'no name' brand that you could get from most Toy stores etc, and took 4 D cell batteries. If your parents had a bit more cash, you got AFX or scalextric with a transformer (never ending power!). i only gave mine away a few years ago to a neighbor, and i bitterly regret that now. i may ask for it back...

Own up all you X generationers...

I still have about 30 metres of scalextric in the cupboard. Been offered thousands for it. I plan on making a major train/slot car setup using paper mache once the new house is built.

Im only 18 :p but I have one.

Had the Auroo AFX kit since I was a little kid, now my nephew is older enough to play with it, I've got it back out to relive my childhood. I've made tracks all over the lounge room, probably have 30+ metres of track :)

in the late 60s there was a great track set up in the front of the
squash court building in downtown Oakleigh...Melbourne
