Welcome to EvilRobotLabs

Hello and welcome to EvilRobotLabs!

EvilRobotLabs is now officially open for business. Everything is pretty much setup now and shouldn’t change too drastically from here on out, there are a few cosmetic changes that are still being worked on but they will not affect the sites functionality. That being said should you encounter a problem or have a question that is not already answered in the site F.A.Q please feel free to reach me by using the Contact Form.

The first products to arrive at EvilRobotLabs are from Viper Scale Racing and available in the HO Slot Cars section of the store. The V-Spec RTR race car is an excellent chassis for beginners that are looking for something faster than the stock cars that come with most race sets but are still easy to control. That being said it’s also a great way for anyone that has some classic AFX Tomy chassis to preserve them by using the V-Spec RTR instead. Just add either the Standard body clip or the Low Rider body clip to the V-Spec and you’ll be able to enjoy your classic body on a modern chassis that you can actually get parts for. There’s also the Tyco 440×2 wide pan body clip for the Tyco 440×2 wide pan bodies.

Make sure to keep an eye out in the Retro Gaming section for the arrival of the Retrode2! This fantastic device along with it’s plugins will allow you to enjoy your classic video game cartridges on your computer, via the appropriate emulator of course. The Retrode2 even allows you to backup your save games from your cartridge, truly a fantastic bit of kit that will no doubt come in handy if you should ever have to replace the battery on your classic game cartridge. Once they arrive I’ll be sure to post a few tutorials here on how to use the Retrode2.

Stay tuned to the News section (or blog if you prefer) for announcements related to new product arrivals and helpful information about HO Slot Car racing and Retro Gaming.

Have Fun
