T-jet Racing Parts

 

With the rise in popularity of HO T-jet racing a number of small manufacturers have produced many excellent products to make your Aurora Thunderjet 500 car go faster, handle better and run smoother.  In an effort to provide ‘one stop shopping’ for the HO racing enthusiast I have gathered some of the better parts and tools in one location for easier shopping.  Due to the limited availability of many of these parts you must call to reserve your order before sending payment.  Please see the home page for phone number and times to call.
