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!

About slot car Motors

Here is a decent article I found about Slot car motors put out by slot car Corner that pertains to 1/32 scale racing. It talks about motor types, torque and speed. Click the link below

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. The past week I had some time to work on a couple cars, I notice that these 2 car were…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

#1 I will be posting the stats for 2015 racing shortly. #2 If you are planning on buying copper tape for a slot car track, according to SCI there is a brand (Venture I believe) that has conductive cement on theirs which allows for splicing of the tape without the need to solder or punch holes in the tape to make the splice conductive, just stick it on and go!

FOAM tires ? Help

DAN, DOUG or who ever >>>>  I bought a 1/24 car on Ebay and it had decent foam tires on it.

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
