New Slot Stars from Round 2 -1/25 and 1/32 Scale Slot Car Model Kit Sets

Nov 29, 2011 No Comments by

The Kats at AMT® are pleased to officially announce the new “SLOT STARS” Electric Slot Car Program! During the 1960s, AMT® offered an exciting array of products to feed the larger scale slot car craze, including complete car kits and parts packs. Today, slot car racing is as hot as ever and AMT® is introducing a brand new high performance metal chassis, featured in full 1/25 and 1/32 Retro Deluxe™ slot car kits!

Each SLOT STARS kit features a complete, fully detailed 1/25 or 1/32 scale model car body with chrome accessories where applicable. These are the same great bodies you find in AMT’s static kits, but they’re molded in ABS plastic for enhanced durability. One-piece, smoke-tinted vacu-formed window units are included. The clear plastic static kit windows are also provided as an option. Every kit includes a “retro racing” decal sheet with numbers and stripes and complete instructions for assembly.

For running gear, an all-new, fully adjustable and extremely durable metal chassis has been developed. Both the wheelbase and overall chassis width can be changed, allowing the chassis to fit under almost any 1/25 OR 1/32 model car body! For go-power, each kit includes a high-performance, 12 volt DC, 22,300 RPM ”GROOV -MASTER™” in-line motor that will easily satisfy all newcomers to the hobby as well as serious veteran competitors.

AMT’s SLOT STARS kits come in irresistible vintage-styled window box packaging that harkens back to the days of the original slot car craze! In early 2012, the first four kits will be released: The ’57 Chevy® Bel Air™, ’66 Chevy® Nova SS, ’70 Chevy® Camaro Z/28, and ’06 Chevy Camaro Concept.

In 2012, Polar Lights will release the 1966 TV Batmobile and Green Hornet Black Beauty as 1/32 SLOT STARS kits, featuring the same high performance Groove-Master motor and fully adjustable chassis! Watch for them all…

About the author

I have been a car guy since my early teens. From managing a performance center on Long Island NY to being a partner of the world’s largest traveling global car show series; my career path has taken me on an exciting journey. I have consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and have been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited me to co-author “The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride” for which one of my cars graces the cover.My diecast addiction began about 12 years back. My girlfriend at the time knew I was saving for a Mustang Cobra. She thought it would be humorous and purchased a diecast version to hold me over for a while. What was an initial joke struck a chord because I was fascinated with how Hot Wheels could make such a cool replica for a buck. The next time we went shopping I stopped in the toy aisle and ended up purchasing additional Hot Wheels and a few Jada vehicles. Well you all know the story from here; one shelf led to a book case. The book case quickly became an apartment filled with hundreds of HotWheels, Jada and other 1:64th scale replicas. Next came my introduction to 1:24th and 1:18th scale die cast and twelve years later I am the proud owner of a collection that is displayed in a 2000sq foot facility with a current count of over 12 thousand unique pieces. My then girlfriend, now wife, has a lot of patience for my hobby and my two little girls enjoy it with us too.Today I find myself fascinated with all scales and all models of customized vehicles. From tuners to rat rods, lead sleds to pro street drag. I do have an appreciation for the well delivered OEM vehicles as well. Most of all I enjoy the hunt to complete a set or series of vehicles. I look forward to being a part of DieCast X Magazine and helping to strengthen, grow and deliver our hobby to people who do not know how rewarding it is to an individual and a family.
