Hello and welcome to ZcarSlotRacing.

My name is Peter Zivanovic and my main hobby is collecting and trying to race slot cars. If I have a particular interest, it is in the slightly left-field stuff. I became curious about sts, which is a complete off-road, 4wd system made by Exin (the Spanish Scalextric Company) between 1985 and 1989. Its penetration outside Spain was very limited and information about it was almost non-existent. So, I did a lot of enquiring, writing, scanning and photographing resulting in The Anoraks’ Guide to sts. I hope you find it interesting and informative.

It would be stretching credulity to call me a dealer but from time to time I manage to get hold of some slot car gear, which I sell at NSCC swapmeets, on eBay or through these pages. My particular interest in sts has led to my getting some sets, cars, track and accessories to sell. I also spotted and imported some very attractive Mercedes SSK and type 35 Bugatti cars. These are reproductions by a German enthusiast of models originally made by Carrera in the 1970’s. Finally, I have a few slot cars of various brands that are either surplus to my (or my friends) requirements or I have picked up on my travels and trades. At the moment, these three sales pages are being re-constructed so are not available.

If you click on ZcarSlotRacing at the top of any page, you will return to the home page.

Finally, I am not a wwweb wizard. I have put these pages together with MS Word (mainly) and tested it against MS Internet Explorer V5 and Netscape Navigator V4.6 on an 800 x 600 screen. At present there are two known problems that I am trying to fix (see below) but if you have any other problems looking at this site or if you see anything wrong, either technically or with the content, please let me know and I’ll try to fix it.

Known problems with this site I will try and fix these as soon as I can work out how to!

1) IE & Netscape

Images should be displayed in a second window of your browser. If this second window is not yet opened, it will be opened and displayed as the active window above all the other windows. If it is opened but inactive (ie the main browser window is active above it) the images will load but the window will stay inactive below the main browser window. This can be overcome by making the second window active by clicking on it or its taskbar icon or by always closing (X) the second window once you have finished looking at each image. I hope this makes sense.

2) Netscape only (I believe I have now found a way to fix this problem but if you still experience it, please let me know.)

I am using a Microsoft program (Word) to build this site. It works OK with Internet Explorer (another Microsoft program) but sometimes Netscape (particularly earlier versions) cannot follow some of the internal links. In this instance, you will need to use your “Back” button to get to a point where you can access the page you require. The main links that this affects are to the home page and to descriptions (and pictures) of items from the sts for sale page.

 

Thanks for visiting ZcarSlotRacing, I hope you enjoy it.
