12 volt motor testing

  Under the OCSRA pull down tab at the top of the page and under Pat T. motor test data you will find my new list. All the information was gathered using the method Robert Livingston used for Slot car news except I have decided to torque test all motors at 12 volts rather than the method of 4 volts. Our club felt this would better rate any given motor. All the equipment used was built to represent what Mr. Livingston used. Any questions about the testing can be posted here on this site. If you…See More

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!

Random thought #2

Pat T., Tim, and I were talking about "what if", we had a portable 4X12 four lane braided "bull ring" oval? If it were spaced for 1/24 cars we could run everything from East Coast Modifieds to hard body stockers and late models. Construction could be one piece and then set on top of club purchased tables that could also be used as pit tables for special events. Cost would consist of a 3 sheets of MDF, support framing, braid, Trackmate, two 8 foot tables, one 4 foot table, fencing material,… Continue

Random thought #1

Doug and I were discussing the possible need for club owned XLR to alligator clip pigtails. Personally, I like the XLR hookup but there are times when we have issues with worn out contacts. The pigtail would allow us to bypass the faulty XLR connector until it can be replaced. If we purchased enough parts to make 6 of the pigtails they could be put in the case that contains the extra club laptop and be readily available if/when needed. Total cost would be somewhere around $50.00 and I have the… Continue

As promised, we now have the particulars for the special Saturday event to be held at Smith's Small Engines on January 3rd,2015.

The race will be an IROC format that will be explained on… Continue
