"Dunham's Brickyard has become my favorite track we compete on. Pat and Jamey created an amazingly deceptive track that defies logic when entering the donut portion. How can a car entering a downhill corkscrew bury the guide to the point you can…"

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!

The following is a partial list of info regarding the event. We will run club owned Scaley COT on the oval. This will be the same format as last year. Each driver will attempt a qualifying run using the same car. Teams will be determined by qualifying results. We are considering a 400 lap race although that is not a definate at this time. The second event will be F1 on the oval. In this race each competitor will run their own entry and not as a team event. As of yet, the duration of this race… Continue

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
