    There are three common slotcar scales (sizes): 1:24 scale, 1:32 scale, and so-called HO size (1:87 to 1:64 scale). These are also commonly written as 1/24, 1/32, 1/87 and 1/64. Usual pronunciation is "one twenty-fourth,""one thirty-second," and so on, but sometimes "one to twenty-four,""one to thirty-two," etc.

    I have a Johnny Lightning Thunderjet car in my hands here. It's roughly the same size as your typical Hot Wheels/Matchbox car.

    Overall Length: 2 1/2" (6.5 cm)

    Overall Width: 1" (2.5 cm)

    Wheelbase: 1 1/2" (3.7 cm)

    Hope this helps!
