Unused, New Old Factory Stock. |
This listing is ONE (1) Large TYCO TCR, Total Control Racing, vintage 1993 Slotless HO scale slot car RACE SET. The components are all New Old Factory Stock that was originally intended to be used to assemble race sets. All track needs some scotch-brite pad brightening of the rails. WD-40 on a rag will help rejuvenate the track appearance & will help to repel moisture. The TYCO TCR system will accept vehicles like Aurora Speedsteer or Ideal TCR as well. On my web site, under guides, i have several in depth essays on TCR racing. The AC powered system works well & has a degree of difficulty that is unexpected. Although the entire track system has integrated guardrails, flying off the track is still probable at higher speeds. Shifting lanes is actuated with a steering wheel on the controller. Applying the wheel while going too slow results in a vehicle stall; do it too late, & the corner wall divider, takes you out. Adding a JAM car creates a situation where one has to get around the moving obstacle! Using a second JAM vehicle (Included) allows one car to go in each direction to warm up the track. JAM vehicles are inexpensive. Typical is a Mustang 5.0 or an Emergency Van.
TCR RACING IS A HOBBY & NOT A TOY. Adult supervision, setup & participation are CRUCIAL to a good user experience. Everything is included to get started. Parts, Vehicles & Track Accessories are widely available.
