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!

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

Practically unbeatable

Out of curiosity, I looked at the OCSRA results and the Daytona PT races at Gary's. For the past several weeks, Larry has been at the top of the podium or at the very least a second place. This an absolutely amazing domination of the races. Having an individual who blows away the field in one or two classes is not an oddity but when one guy does this in most every class it is simply amazing. This speaks volumes for Larry's ability to develop his cars and focus on the actual race. We have all… Continue

Slottrak scoring demo coming to Two Brew on March 21/22

Larry has taken the initiative to contact Mike Block who hails from WS. Mike is the owner and developer of Slottrak, a very high tech user friendly scoring system that is used worldwide. Mike will be in Linton on March 21/22 to demonstrate his product on Larry's track. This is an event you don't want to miss so put it on your calendar.

Fly Daytona Prototype at the Intimidator on Thursday 2/13/14

The Intimidator will once again host a DP race on Thursday. Mike will have the doors open at 5:00 with racing at 7:00. The evening consists of three minute heats with a minimum of two races based upon number of entrants. Last week, thirteen racers made up the field and hoping for the same turnout this week. This is a fantastic series on a very fast track that the DP cars perform very well on.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway Vintage Car Race

While browsing the Internet, I discovered this article posted in the Indianapolis Star news website.  It mentions how there will be actual racing with both professional and amateur drivers competing in 12 classes of cars with about 600 cars racing in total.  The oval and road course will be utilized during this three day event.  The entire race event starts on June 6, 2014 and includes practice, qualification and the actual races.  Additionally, it looks like the IMS will allow visitors to…

The Beast is brought back to life

Larry, Jim, Tim, Pat T., and Dan worked on the track today. All six lanes are up and running but Larry is still trying to get the computer to do its thing. The goal is to get Trackmate to run on the original tower computer. With any luck Jim should have the track back in the rotation in short order. A huge "thanks" to the guys for all their effort.

Warped chassis

I had a Carrera Aston Martin Vantage on the workbench that was giving me fits. One front wheel was not touching my set up block by a smidge. After wrestling with this issue for an hour it became apparent the chassis was twisted. Out came the surface plate, magnets, baking dish, and tea kettle. The chassis now sits perfectly flat and ready for the build to continue. I have probably built 50-60 cars and this is only the second twisted chassis I have encountered.

B Nova installation

I needed to repair a broken guide post mount on a Fly DP. Syster Claus suggested I try a B Nova adapter as opposed to the cost of a replacement chassis. The entire procedure took less than thirty minutes and was a perfect fit. My only concern is the durability of the JB Weld.
