The cars you see on the pages of Model Car Racing magazine are as realistic as die-cast cars, but these cars you can actually race! Knowing that, why would you want to buy a model car that did not run?
A large percentage of those who race full-size cars or motorcycles also race model cars. These 1/32 scale cars are about the size of a smart phone. Racing 1/32 scale cars on a tabletop track (that you can assemble in your home) is as close as you can get to recreating the thrills of full-size car racing without the life--threatening possibility.
Model Car Racing magazine focuses on replicas of real racing cars with ongoing series of articles:
•History and provenance of the newest model race cars,
•Full race track performance tests of new cars,
•How to tune and improve the cars’ handing and speed
•How to build replicas of cars you cannot buy ready to run.
•Ways to make each car equal to others in its class
•Race track plans you can assemble from sectional track on tabletops as small as 4 x 8 feet and as large as 10 x 20-feet
The purpose of Model Car Racing magazine is defined by the subtitle that appears on the contents page: "Ready-To-Run Cars You Can Race At Home," but those terms need some clarifying. There are several other forms of electric model car racing, including radio-controlled racing, racing battery-powered cars in trough-shaped "lanes" or tracks, and racing 1/24 scale slot cars on commercial tracks--you'll find nothing about those hobbies in these pages.
The majority of the articles in this magazine focus on 1/32 scale, but there are also articles on HO cars and tracks and an occasional article about realistic 1/24 scale model racing cars.
