If you were disappointed with what you found under the tree on the 25th, you should get yourself something you really want – like Slot Mod’s RCR 917 slot car track.

Made famous by Vic Elford and Gerald Larrousse who drove it to win 1971’s 12 Hours of Sebring, this limited edition RCR 917 opens to reveal a cool slot-car racing track.

Staying true to its original shape, the RCR 917 features fiberglass body panels that keep its original form. Equipped with rolling aluminum three-piece original-style center lock wheels, race-worn tires, working headlights and taillights, Slot Mod’s RCR 917 is crafted with superb attention to detail. Inside, you’re treated to a 1/32 scale wooden slot car raceway, complete with period-correct signs, banners, aluminum Armco railing, trees and structures – all of which are handcrafted.

There’s no word on a price for it, as it’s made based on custom specifications unique to each customer, but we’re sure it’ll cost you all of your Christmas money. If you’re serious about ordering the RCR 917, you can find out more at Slot Mod’s site.
