Plastic Tracks:

Some great layouts can be made with plastic slot car tracks. Downside is, competition slot cars that work on a big slot car tracks, don’t work on these even with a battery as the power source. Sponge tires won’t grip the plastic. If you add goop, it is hard to clean up because any solvent you use will attack the plastic. The rails are steel.

Fishtailing (slide) is the single most important element of fun in driving a slot car. Lack of it, is why slot car racing is dying.
