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!

Analysis of 72 Laps vs. 3 Minute Segments

The figures below from last night's racing show the differences in time from longest time spent on track to the shortest.. Each track will vary of course and  we can adjust as needed. GT1 and LMP are classes we generally run for 3 minute segments. LMP for example may go up one or two laps to get a little closer to 12 minutes.…

Two laner on the drawing board

Tim has been busy designing a two lane track to put in his bedroom. It will be constructed on two tables with dimensions of 5'X4' on one with 4'X3'4" on the other. This gives a total length of 9' with a 4'X14" kick out. Doug took a look at it today and gave his approval. Both tables will be constructed of furring strips, skinned on both sides with 1/4" luan. 12 volt power pack with Trackmate scoring will make for a very nice test track that will be portable. Tim's intent is to use his artistic… Continue

Making axle spacers the easy way

I want to give Jim credit for this "how to" info. Most of us purchase SCC aluminum axle bushings and are more than pleased with the product. However, there are times when you need a specific size that is not in your inventory. Jim showed me how he takes the appropriate size aluminum tubing, slides an axle into the tubing, marks the cut line, and then rolls the assembly under an Exacto knife. The blade etches the cut line in the tubing while the axle keeps the tubing from collapsing. You end up… Continue

Carrera 1/24 S-Can Motor Adapter

No question about it, Carrera 1/24 scale cars are pretty awesome. Unfortunately, most people are not able to take them to their full potential because of power issues. Now there is an affordable solution: Use the Devis 3d Designs Carrera 1/24 S-Can Motor Adapter and run the same voltage as your other cars!

The adapter allows you to keep everything but the motor stock. It even lets you reuse the same hardware so there is no fumbling around for the right screws. We have made this adapter reversible so you can use either can or endbell side shaft to fit your motor application.

iHobby News - AMT Reproduction Brass Chassis

One of the few interesting new items for Slot Car racers shown at the 2014 iHobby show in Schaumburg, IL was the reproduction and update of the 1960's vintage 1/24 AMT brass chassis that was shown by Professor Motor of Livonia, MI

Photo provided by Andy Smith / Professor Motor

This description of the chassis is provided by Andy Smith / Professor Motor:

"NEW MINT 1/24 Scale Reproduction of the 1960's AMT Slot Car Chassis.  Produced from ALL NEW TOOLING !  Gorgeous brass stampings and all stainless steel hardware.  This chassis design was used by AMT in the 1960's for both sports cars like the Chaparral / McLaren Elva / Lola T70 and Stock Cars such as the 1966 Galaxie / Chevy Impala and the Mercury Cyclone.  The chassis has an adjustable wheelbase from 3.85" (97.8mm) minimum to 4.9" (124.5mm) maximum.  The main chassis plate has a width of  2.15" (54.6mm) and since it is made of brass, it can easily be soldered or modified to fit a wide variety of period body shells if needed.  This chassis has brass "slide weights" that move front to rear as the car accelerates or brakes that were designed in to give variable weight distribution as specified by the original chassis designer.

This version of the AMT chassis is greatly improved over the 1960's original.  Those improvements include a MUCH thicker brass used in the main chassis plate for added rigidity that was a notable weakness in the original version, all stainless steel attaching hardware with easier to use phillips drive screws and a nylon insert lock nut to hold the adjustable guide tongue in place solidly. This version also has a much improved overall quality of stamping with better flatness and finish, a much improved chassis fit for the bushings / ball bearings that would be used, and finally a 1/4"+ increase in the chassis wheelbase over the original to correct the wheelbase mismatch when using large 1/24 bodies such as the 1966 Galaxie or Chevy Impala."

The body mounting kits are sold separately and are available in "narrow" style for sports car bodies and "wide" for stock car bodies.

A prototype of the Professor Motor "Monogram" series 1/32 RTR cars was shown at iHobby but we were asked to not publish photos because the livery has not yet been finalized. It MAY be similar to what is shown below:
