" If for no other reason I would recommend this book for the many projects inside. Chang provides detailed instructions and wiring diagrams for building hybrid tracks, improving cars' lights, powering passive flippers and many other upgrades for home or club tracks.
This book helped me understand how much digital slot car racing has been advanced by the work of hobbyists, primarily in Europe. "

" What a job he has done! To say that he has nailed it is to do the author an injustice. He has nailed it, bolted it , then glued it to be sure. There is something for everyone here, from the dyed-in-the-wool analogue racer who is wondering what all the fuss is about, to the modern digital-age converts, and it's a book that a new enthusiast can 'grow into' as he or she gains experience.
This book should grace the shelves (or better still the workbench) of every digital racer out there. Slot car product of the year? Quite possibly. "
