1993 UNUSED TYCO TCR Slotless Slot Car Total Control RACE SET 20ft + 3 Vehicles!
listing is ONE (1) 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 (available
separate) allows one car to go in each direction to warm up the track.
JAM vehicles are very inexpensive. Typical is a Mustang 5.0 or an
Emergency Van. A WARM TRACK MAKES FOR A WELL PERFORMING TRACK.
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

SHIPPED IN A USPS PRIORITY MAILING BOX. NO RETAIL BOX IS INCLUDED. Not
fancy, but very cool to be this fresh after 25 years! Assembled from
bulk packaged, new old, unused factory stock. All track requires initial
buffing of the rails for best performance.
PLEASE NOTE: NOT ALL CARS ARE THE SAME SPEED. Cars vary in original
speed, speed over time & time before a reconditioning is needed.
Some maintenance on chassis can increase performance. Some users find
running the chassis on a 9V battery for 1/2 an hour initially, breaks in
the chassis, allows the carbon brushes to seat against that armature
& generally prolong the livelihood of the chassis. SOME CHASSIS
NEVER PERFORM GREAT & ARE DESTINED TO BECOME PARTS DONORS. Always
good to have extra chassis & parts around as both are very
