About – How it all started!
In the beginning, as our name suggests, BackShedSlots was conceived in a typical Australian back yard shed.
It started with a basic Scalextric Sport layout with no bells and whistles. But it soon became very obvious that this was not going to satisfy our desire for more speed, higher lap timing accuracy and more realism.
The realism side of things relating to how the Race Management software works, and the scenery/accessories around the track itself.
We use and highly recommend Race Coordinator as a complete race management system. The author only asks for a donation to a charity he supports, in return for a brilliant program that rivals any of the other commercially available packages.
Add in a USB plug & play lap timing hardware setup from Viasue, and you have yourself a killer setup with many customisable options in both hardware setup and software.
This brings us to what we are currently up to.
There are plans for a myriad of track-side accessories, buildings and miscellaneous scale items for you to place in your layout to help bring it to life.
The first products we are working on is a range of 1:32 scale barriers. At this point we have four barrier types under development. But our first product being a portable barrier, is now available for purchase from our website.
There will be many more exciting products to come – stay tuned!
