The assembled Auto World Double 8 Racing Layout track layout size is 6.3 x 1.8 ft, and the running length is 14.5 feet. A total of 3 different track layout diagrams are shown on the back of the box to fit your available space and add variety.
The included all-new power supply will allow you to adjust the voltage from 9 to 24 volts. The main benefit of this adjustability is to allow for beginners to start slow and then increase the speed as they improve their driving skills. This Auto World adjustable power supply is rated at 2 amps which is plenty of power to minimize or eliminate any power fluctuations between lanes.
The Thunderjet Ultra-G chassis is Auto World's adaptation of the classic "pancake" design, originally developed by Aurora in the early days of electric slot racing. Auto World expanded the design by adding a Neodymium magnet for better control. Closer to true HO scale (1:87), ThunderJet Ultra-G bodies attach to the chassis using two small screws. The Thunderjet Ultra-G is retro slot racing at its best!
HO scale slot cars measure about 3 inches long x 1.25 inches wide and are about half the size of 1:32 slot cars.
