enjoy

I like the quarterscale banner and the photo of the guy holding the F1 with the "lit" road behind it.

Thanks, There is MUCH more to come. Its still under construction and is in a "test" state right now. I am going to update with more pictures tonight. I hope this site will be of help to newbies and collectors alike. Since its so hard to find info on the net on 1/4 scale cars that are NOT nascar style.

The "Ford" with Benetton Sportsystem. Does that have an internal antenna setup?

There is no long load time here or there better not be considering what tier level I am on. Of course, it also depends on your host server.

How is that Bergonzoni in your garage? There is a used one for sale here locally. By the way, I think you forgot to list the one with the wheels sticking out in the upper right hand corner, not that you can really set it anyway.

Up in the right hand corner is just 1/8 and 1/10 scale junk. Who cares about that?

The Bergonzoni is a very good driver. I drive it in front of the house and it is waaaay fast!!! Never raced it though.

Yea, its high dollar. Problem is in a few years that small stuff aint worth anything. I only have 6 1/8 & 1/10 cars. I really stopped buying them and started investing in 1/4 scale. If you buy them used they hold their value quite well. Thats what I dont understand about these $1500 ++ Tmaxxes on ebay?!? In 5 years they are going to be worth $300!!......Dont EVEN get me started on RTR and what junk the hobby shops sell today....dang now I am ranting like a madman!

The black Indy CART without the tires looks pretty nice. Tag, the local driver who lives here just won the last Champ race.

I updated some of the car pics, but the best part I added is a historic pic section under history for raco. There are many pics of the old Raco Modelsport!!!

Sorry, did not get anymore v8 pics up yet.

Those engines put out about 4hp. The ones in the Indy cars are made by a guy in Europe. There was very few made. The options were fuel injection or carbs. I have more close ups to add to the site on the black Indy car. Conley is also going to release a replica 1/4 scale Ford 9!QUOT! rear-end! As for the price on the engines... I take offense to that. They are really a work of art, they also hold their value quite well. Conley sells quite a few and there is a 14week wait on them!! These machines are for people that only want the best.
