GETTING STARTED WITH WRENN 152

GETTING STARTED WITH WRENN 152

For those of you who are thinking about getting started with a Wrenn 152 collection, there are some obvious points worth considering. When it was first introduced, Wrenn formula 152 was unique in a number of ways and today, even with the introduction of digital slot racing, Wrenn can still provide a unique slot racing experience. The ability to have three cars independently racing on each lane and the facility of changing lanes when racing was certainly ahead of its time back in 1960. Wrenn’s space saving scale of 1/52 was also definitely worth considering then as it is today.

If you have decided to take the plunge and purchase your first Wrenn 152 set, should you be lucky enough to find one, the following will probably be of assistance. As with all slot racing products that were manufactured over 50 years ago, you will have to be prepared to service the cars and clean the track initially before starting to race. If you owned a Wrenn 152 set previously you will already know the intricacies of the Wrenn AC Vibrator motors and the later DC motor option, but for those of you who are at the beginning of your journey, there are some words of advice on how to get and keep your Wrenn 152 slot racing products working. I have seen many Wrenn 152 cars offered for sale in various states of repair but since they were well engineered originally and also well built the majority of these cars can be made to run again. If the various components are still there they can easily be made to work and some spares are still available for most of the missing items.

I do hope that you enjoy being part of a growing group of enthusiasts around the world who enjoy collecting and racing your Wrenn 152 cars. The following two items on the Wrenn 152 AC Vibrator-motored cars and the Wrenn track will hopefully enable you to experience (again) some wonderful slot racing items from the 1960’s.
