missed laps

 There have been a few race night that laps were not counting. I love the new timing system the club is using, but if a lap is missed there is not a completely accurate way to add a lap. If you look at some of the complete race time the finish difference ....ITS CLOSE!  This new timing system allows each heat to start from the start line, which if ya don't win a race it feels good to win a heat or two.

Slot Car Addiction!!

Slot car racing is a great way to get away from the everyday worries and challenges of life.

I started my slot racing journey waaaaay back in the mid 1960's with a Strombecker track and cars. I constructed and raced 1/24 scale cars in the Milwaukee area in the late 60's until Uncle Sam came along and sent me to Vietnam.

During the 1980's I raced 1/10 RC cars until the cost factor became much more than I was willing to spend. Since January of this year I have connected with a group of club racers and have come full circle back to slots.

Granted, our 1/32 cars don't have blinding speed, but the realism factor more than compensates for the lack of speed. Tweaking and racing is a very enjoyable way to put aside your worries and concerns for a short period of time and enjoy what life has to offer.

Welcome to Slot Car Addiction!

But on the MDF track its like running on ICE !  What can I treat the tires with that wont harm the MDF Track surface ? Dan I noticed the other night at Doug's you had a similar problem playing with your 1/24 car after the race ?

Food for thought

Fellow racers,

I really enjoy our TA class but am tired of seeing the Scaley bodies when there is so much more to offer. RMS Resins has a great selection of TA bodies that can be mounted on a Scaley chassis. These include the Javelin, Firebird,Mustang, Camaro,Corvair,Nova and even a Falcon. I realize resin bodies are much heavier than what we normally run but think how nice it would be to see a truly diversified field of cars. If you are intrigued by this post then check out the RMS Resin… Continue

Here is another update on the Dec 4th Enduro. After some discussion our group decided that the complexity of buying and testing motors for the race could be overwhelming since there could be 20 or more motors to buy and handout and then the determination of who’s car and motor would be the best. So we decided that each person on each team can run their own car when their turn to drive comes along. The…

The Super Tires 100 at Goodspeed Raceway














28 November 2015

Goodspeed and the West Michigan Scale Slot Car Racing Group hosted a pair of hard hitting, two fisted competitive show downs Saturday; the Super Tires 100 for Grand National Monogram cars sponsored by Super Tires and a Brights in the Night LMP1 race under the lights.  

The races attracted four racers from Chicago as well as a strong contingent of the regulars.  Racers competing included; M. G. Brown, Jack Dastoli, John Hansen, Harlan Jones, John Lacko, Denny Moscatelli, Kurt Nank, Tom Ryfiak, Craig Salisbury, Ken Swanson, Mark Welch and Kevin Yonkers.

The Super Tires 100 consisted of 5 minute heats to insure the top cars completed 100 laps.  The race was limited to only the Monogram NASCARS in the class.  Nick of Super Tires provided their 1700 tires for every entrant and the podium finishers won their choice of six pair of Super Tires.

The LMP1 race was an enduro with 12 minute heats that tested both man and machine.  The only eligible cars were Scalextric LMP1 cars with both head and tail lights.  Back up cars were pressed into action by John L. and Ken due to mechanical issues during the extended LMP1 race.

Due to a cold track, no new track records were set.
