4Gear Release 3 NHRA Auto World Slot Cars

The 4Gear Release 3 was the first release of licensed NHRA Funny Cars and Pro Stocks based on my research. I found a PDF “Sell Sheet” for this release listing all eight cars. There are six NHRA Funny Cars and 2 NHRA Pro Stocks in this release. The sell sheet is dated January 27th, 2011.

Surprisingly this sell sheet listed one of the Funny Cars as being the Canidae Funny Car with driver Paul Lee. The Canidae car was not one of the five cars featured on the sell sheet though. I have not been able to find any images of an Auto World Canidae slot car so I assume it was scrapped and the Auto Club Funny Car of Robert Hight was added to the set. Also, you will notice that the Tony Pedregon Funny Car shown on sell sheet ended up being a Pro Stock instead. One last observation I have made is on the two Castrol sponsored Funny Cars of John Force and Ashley Force Hood you do not see the Simpson Decal on the side right before the window starts, but on the actual cars there is a Simpson decal. You will see this for the John Force Racing Dragstrip set as well. Fine print does state “Design and vehicles subject to change.”

Check out the sell sheet below, as well as the group and individual images of the actual slot cars in the 4Gear Release 3.

Release Info for all Auto World Drag Racing Slot Cars

I have tried to document all the different releases for various Auto World NHRA drag racing slot cars including the NHRA Top Fuel Dragsters, NHRA Funny Car and NHRA Pro Stock. This list also includes the Legends of the Quarter Mile slot cars. If I have missed any or you have additional details for those listed, please feel free to let me know so I can update this information. I am missing some of the numbers for a few releases. This list does not include any of the Iwheels special edition cars.

10/29 Update: I have been doing more research and have found that there are as many as 30 or more Auto World Drag Racing Slot Cars (Top Fuel, Funny Cars and Pro Stock) that were exclusive to their Pro Racing Dragstrip sets or other special edition sets available through retailers like Matco Tools, Mac Tools, Snap-On and Summit. I have found a lot of original marketing material for the different releases which has helped me to start piecing together an entire collection list. I will work towards getting all that information listed here on HO Slot Car Drag Racing for your reference. So the list below is fairly accurate for the various releases of drag racing slot cars, it only has the 1 set listed at this time. Check out the Auto World Releases page for a more detailed release history.
