Every now again, a holiday gift comes along that can change your life. Just ask John Androsko. A little more than a year ago, his wife gave him a colorful miniature race car for Christmas. More specifically, it was a slot car--a tiny, electrically powered speedster that can be run only on a special track. Androsko took the car to a slot car track near his Fullerton home. Racing the car through hairpin turns and at blinding speeds down a straightaway, the 33-year-old became hooked.
