Very good for those considering which system to buy Nov. 26 2012
By Bojan Niceno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is an excellent source of information for readers who are buying a digital slot car system for the first time, or for those considering whether to switch from an analog to a digital slot car system. The author covers advantages and shortcomings of digital to analog slot car racing, and describes many digital systems in a non-biased way, which helps reader to make the best choice for himself. He gives sound advices on how to design tracks, on race tactics and strategies, as well as on how to switch cars from analog to digital.

The book is NOT good for a novice who already owns a digital system (as I was). Such a reader will benefit very little from this work.

I give this book only four stars, because, being a novice in slot car racing, I really miss a chapter or two on non-digital issues such car tuning, taking care of tires, bearings, which tools are essential to take care of your cars, etc. I guess the author covers this information in his previous book, "The Slot Car Handbook".
