I was never into Slammers. There are some nice pieces though.

Aside from the slammer function, they were designed modular so you could mix and match their front and back halves with each other and those from 8236 and 8237.

It's also the first line of sets to include those plastic ramps. Back then I thought it a bit odd that they have no connection points whatsoever. Their material is thinner than a baseplate, which makes them very fragile.

Sure, they're thin, but the corners help reinforce them. I've never had trouble with them breaking.

I never had this set, but boy did I have a blast with those ramps.
