I’ve had my eye on these Micro Slot Car sets from Tomy for a while now, so I’m glad to see The Gadgeteer has posted a review of one of the starter sets. The cars and tracks are basically no different than the slightly larger versions many of us enjoyed as kids, except that their micro aspect means they can be easily setup and raced on your desk at work for the title of the champion of the universe. The basic set pictured above starts at about $80, but they can get even more expensive like the Nissan Micro Slot History Set available from the Japan Trend Shop for $158! Damn you miniature nostalgia!
