The hobby is presently in a sort of revival with makers like Scalextric and Carrera making a comeback. The renewed interest additionally spurred hobbyists to collect vintage slot vehicles that grew to become well-liked through the early years.

Essentially the most trendy of the slot automobiles are the digitized ones, which were invented in 2004. Digital slot automobiles have the ability to race on a number of, offering a more sensible simulation of automobile racing.
