When the LA slot car museum asked what kind of track they should install, my first reaction was of course, The Mesac track! Unfortunately, even.

Does anyone remember, or have any information on the MESAC track from the 60's? It was a track that could be changed to eight different.

In America manufacturers such as Aurora, Strombecker, A. Cars would straddle the rail through the use of three or four wheeled spool-shaped appendages known as 'zonkers'. Extractor fans in the form of hairdryers were used to suck away excess fumes when cars were at the start and most importantly an automatic lap-scorer recorded positions. Jakober at the first bend then Plumier at the second, Jakober over the fly-over and neck and neck down the straight, with the Porsche and Lotus miniatures reaching scale speeds of over m. He did however apply for another patent for a new and improved track but this to seems to have come to naught. Adding to this environment is the strong tradition in model engineering in the UK brought about by a limited market for manufactured hobby supplies and the generally lower living standard at that time. In the United States the first rail racers were actually model airplane enthusiasts led by Tom Dooling in Writing later in the June, issue of "Model Craftsman" magazine, Tom Dooling noted that he and his brothers were sitting around the fire in the living room of their Southern California home, discussing the day's activities at the Los Angeles Model Airplane field located at Rosecrans and Western In his article, Dooling described himself as: "an ardent model airplane fan, had a plane of my own, and like most amateurs in aero-dynamics, I managed to bring my plane home in pieces after each Sunday's flying. The results were reported on in the January issue of Model Cars: Former World Champion, Jim Clark, who acted as timekeeper, led the terrific burst of cheers for Fritz Jakober - for year-old Fritz of Lucerne sailed through heats and finally won the overall championship at the miniature European Grand Prix organized by Scalextric. That happened in in of all places Los Angeles, California a traditional hotbed of car racing in this country. While most of the die-hard model airplane buffs ridiculed the unreliable little racer, a few decided that they too wanted to try their hand at building their own gas-powered cars. Model Maker, a highly influential hobby magazine did a write-up for their December issue. Maximum speed, which reached close to mph, was the goal here, as the electronics required to control these cars remotely had not yet been invented. Early Developments in England Rail Racing up to this point while exciting to watch was a noisy, smelly affair, unsuitable for home use. In the early days of electric car racing, He purchased tinplate Scalex cars from Woolworth's and used the bodies to put over his new electrified chassis. Dwarfing the sales of any other slot car company in the United States regardless of scale.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Still racing diesel cars indoors must have been similar to sitting in the garage with the motor running. They were surprisingly similar to modern slot cars, but independent speed control was available only as an optional extra. Adams eventually switched from diesel racing to the electric car racing. It should be noted that the companies mentioned so far were primarily in the business of selling model railroads and the cars were considered to be just another accessory. Adams was a partner in the original firm whose main line of business was said to be as a building contractor. Mapson who along with Lee A. In the company began the manufacture of its own line of plastic model kits. Leave it to an American to introduce some speed. The American public by this time had been introduced to the new hobby by retailers such as Polk Hobbies of New York, a major promoter of slot car racing in the 60's. By Aurora had sold an astounding 25 million HO slot cars, the most popular line of slot cars in history. In Aurora went slot car racing basing their Aurora Model Motoring HO or "half O or OO gauge as it was called in England on the work of English inventor, Derek Brand who first developed a small motorized car to be used with model railroads. Being like any other average American, I have always had the desire to tinker with gadgets of one sort or another, and this model car idea could not be passed up. Additional bodies including dump and ice trucks and you could even race a bus full of terrified passengers using a 6th wheel chassis extension. According to Adams when visiting the Scalex factory to negotiate a deal to buy the bodies direct he was told by Fred Francis, the founder, that no more Scalex tin bodies would be available as the company was going electric with their new Scalextric racing cars and sets and the rest they often say is history In Scalextric caused a sensation at the Harrogate Toy Fair with cars running on a rubber slotted track that picked up electric current from beneath a groove with the aid of a gimbal wheel. Sporadically over the next forty years, several other electrically powered commercial products came and went from companies such as Marx and the Bachman Brothers in the United States as well as Marklin and Fleischmann in Europe. This caused an actuator reed to vibrate up and down and in so doing turn the drive gear. After two hugely demanding years he sold the expanding company at the end of to Lines Brothers Ltd, producers of the Tri-ang Railways system. Power was supplied by batteries located in a little cardboard hut with each driver had his own on-off button to control his car and the race was on. This meant that modelers were left to their own abilities to manufacture their toys if they sought a certain level of sophistication. The cars were attached to a pair of ball bearings mounted on the front and back axle and guided by a rail on the track, which added more fun for the spectators. Adams a born self-promoter did not skip any detail and had a team build 40 diesel rail cars representing just about every full size racing car from Ferraris and BRMs to Cooper s. The First Slot Car Research has shown that a patent describing slot cars racing on a track was issued on March 22, to an Albert E. This motor is sometimes referred to a pancake type. Tri-ang also introduced hand controllers that greatly improved the users ability to control their car. Tri-ang replaced the tinplate bodies with plastic moldings and replaced the motors with ones of their own make. Electrical pickup was accomplished using a front bumper guide system that ran along the perimeter of the course. While the name of Henri Baigent has since receded back into history it would not be an exaggeration to consider Baigent the father of English Rail Racing if not slot cars in general. The circuit is completed by a second contact emanating near the rear wheels that makes contact with the metal track. Cullen and associated drawings clearly show a track with a slot. In s British modelers Ken Wallis and later Charles Woodland created what are currently considered the first slot cars but it is another modeler by the name of Henri Baigent along with Alban Adams and Fred Francis who did the most to help push the hobby forward. In Adams opened a new indoor circuit for diesel rail cars at Boscombe. The performance of Dooling's first car was marginal; but, nonetheless, it attracted the attention of a number of fellows who had come to the Dust Bowl to fly their model airplanes. The track included an ingenious lap counter, which unfortunately could only count to four. Following their initial attempt at building a gas-powered miniature racecar, Dooling noted: "The basic principle proved a success, and we immediately started designs for a new one. The cars had what was called a vibrator motor developed by Brand. Also that year the first Scalextric World Championship was held in London. The ft long track was housed in a fairly large building and was configured in a more or less figure-8 shape. Finally the country's continuing economic depression forced production of the Electricarto be halted in At the time the set was considered pricey While certainly a novelty these early efforts did not produce the speed that enthusiasts expected from their racing cars. The following week, with the aid of my brothers, we assembled our first car. His company, Playcraft Model Motoring system was on display at an English toy fair and Aurora promptly acquired the marketing rights to the Model Motoring product line for sale in the U. Power for each lane was supplied by individual user-driven generators requiring the operator to wind a handle providing for a rather stimulating racing experience. Tri-ang strove to stay on top of an ever-growing hobby by heavily promoting Scalextric through the efforts of various drivers including Graham Hill. Early propulsion was provided by a wind-up clockwork mechanism. In England due to its dodgy weather indoor rail racing grew from necessity. To solve this dilemma Baigent developed a smaller scale electric system using a slotted or walled track and a large wiper fitted under each car to provide electrical contact. Baigent applied for a patent and formed a company called Henri Baigent Ltd. Cars were being produced in factories in France, Australia and New Zealand as well as a manufacturing and distribution agreement in Spain which would evolve in later years to the SCX brand. After numerous complaints the cars were replaced by the legendary Thunderjet slot car model that was introduced in The T-jet motor, also invented by Brand sat upright in the chassis and were easy to service because of the simple gearing and replaceable parts. This must have been at that time one of the largest groups of diesel rail cars ever built by one company MRRC in one place, and fortunately many of these cars still exist. The size of the cars made it possible to easily set up a course on the family carpet. In rail racing the cars raced on the surface of a board track usually consisting of lanes. Holding out for what he hoped would be a bigger payday, it never came, and he never made any money on his patent. Giammarino, his cousin Gennaro, Abe Shikes and John Cuomo as a contract manufacturer of injection molded plastics. Rail Racing Without the support of the big toy companies it was left to the backyard hobbyist to keep the dream alive. The first commercial slot cars or more accurately model electric racing cars operating under constant power were made by Lionel USA and appeared in their catalogues in They drew power from a toy train rail sunk in a trough that was connected to a battery. Though he had offers from the AC Gilbert and Louis Marx toy companies he felt the offer was too small. In describing the car, Dooling remarked: "This little buggy had the beauty and grace of a one-legged duck - and with all its ugliness. For reasons unknown Lionel discontinued their slot cars in after an estimated 12, slot cars were manufactured. Each competitor, already a National Champion, had raced the various preliminary heats in his own country and had been flown by Scalextric to London for the Grand Prix at the Tri-and showrooms in Haymarket. Over 20 laps of the tricky and exciting circuit in the final there was literally nothing in it, first Jakober and then Andre Plumier. The motor used a miniature push rod that would supply and then cut electrical power to a coil that would become magnetized and demagnetized. A public demonstration of his invention occurred on August 22nd at the Model Engineer Exhibition, Westminster. This would prove to be a seminal event in the history of slot cars as the diesel racecars speeding along the large figure-eight was the hit of the show. Originally the fence came rolled in two foot lengths which was then assembled with wooden posts to form a continuous oval. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Model Electric Racing Cars make their First Appearance Model cars have been around as long as there have been cars to model. The slot guides the movement of the car though the conductor at the front of the car does now swivel as it would in a modern slot car but rather it along with the front wheels are mounted on a pivoting truck. Patents were applied for in Baigent's system proved popular and several tracks were made using this configuration. By Scalextric was well established having signed the World Champion, Jim Clark to promote their brand. In the company was consolidated with the Kingston Products Corporation. Robert L. When the firm required additional funds to meet growing interest and future expansion he grabbed the opportunity to take over the business and rename it Model Road Racing Cars Ltd, MRRC. The patent issued to Albert E. In the slot is a conductor that besides being isolated from the rest of the track makes contact with a roller attached to the car. Cullen continued to apply for patents for other inventions, whether any of these provided the lucre he dreamed of history reveals no answer. These came to be known as rail cars as opposed to true slot cars. Initially nearly all powered cars were guided by raised rails, either at the wheels railroad-style , the lane center, or along one edge.
