Welcome to TCR Slot Car.. the home of "Slotless" Racing


What is Total Control Racing?

Drive, accelerate, pass & slide back in front and just in Front of your Opponent!
But Watch out for the jam vehicle! Criss-crosses, up-and-over bridges, obstacle barrels and a myriad of other specialty items came with most sets.

     Although we remember it very fondly, maybe a bit better than it actually worked, the TCR race system always seemed to pose one minor problem or two. Mainly it's downfall was the "stall". Zooming down a straight, banging in a corner or sliding through an s-curve, a mid-lane, mid-move, mid-pass, then stall... It really slowed racing down. A clean, warm, tight track helped, but few kids could afford or figure out the solution.

     TCR is an AC powered system, rather than the typical DC power of slotted race sets. AC power is what allows you to switch lanes. It demands an output of Amperage in AC current of at least 2 AMPs. A Variable-Volt, Variable-Amp Power Source is just the ticket to allow a racer to 'dial-in' a set of cars. One power for two cars, boost of power if you add a JAM car & even more power as you enlarge the system. Often well over $100, it is the cost of a truly successful TCR race system. The addition of dependable, variable power is nearly as important as power distribution over a tightly connected track. Large or small system, a second power pack arrangement or under-the-track-wire-jumper system is needed for dependable, even power around the track circuit.
