Slot Car and Pre-Pinewood Derby Test Track
TBD During weekend of January 20, 2018
Slot Car/hour: $15
Test your Pinewood Derby Car: FREE
In January we head out to Modelville Hobby in Ashland to have some fun racing slot cars, and test our Pinewood Derby Cars!!!
- Bring your car (needs to be nearly complete)
- Find out how it’s running
- Learn how to make it run even faster
- Race your friends (over and over and over again)!!!
Their test track is very similar to the track we use for the Pinewood Derby and will serve as a good learning experience for Scouts to test and tune their cars one week before the big event.
There is ample table top space available for scouts to tune up their pinewood derby cars, bring your own tools.
Optional: Your scout (and family) can use Modelville Hobby’s slot car tracks for an hour, (the $15 rental fee includes car, track time and controller).
Modelville Hobby is located at 280 Eliot Street in Ashland, MA behind Lentros Engineering, across from Shaw’s Supermarket. There are six buildings in a row that look similar. Number 280 is clearly marked with the “Lentros Engineering” sign across the front of the building. Modelville Hobby is located in the back of this building and entrance is on the side near the back corner of the building.
Please note that anytime I take 126 through Framingham to get to Modelville Hobby I hit a fifteen minute traffic delay. I instead now come from the West and take Main Street to Prospect Street to Fruit Street to Eliot Street.
