If you have ever wanted your own tech block to help tune your slot cars, check out this feature article on the MCM web site:
http://www.modelcars...ine-tech-block/
I love it, and it has helped big time with a lot of my cars.

I know. The thing is incredible! You can even test motors by themselves. I have a plastic pinion I split on the end, with a small piece of the reflective tape, and I can check which of the exact same motors are the fastest. It's pretty cool. Maybe a jig to hold the motors in would be the ultimate add-on for this. I'll ask Mark about that.
