Would love to see photos.

In the late '60s, I had a dark red Cobra big-block slot car, with a sidewinder motor.  My dad took it to his work (Hughes Aircraft, where he worked on the Space programs) and had one of the electrical engineers tweak it up.

After that, it was the fastest thing at the big Revell slot car track in my neighborhood until it inevitably spun off the track or went airborne on a banked turn. Was a lot to handle at speed, much like the real thing.   

Good times.
