"A huge thanks to Larry for offering his track in place of the Intimidator on such short notice. Due to vacations, I haven't raced since September 10 so was nice to get back in the groove."

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

"Slot Cars Magazine" Announced

Model Cars Magazine publisher Gregg Hutchings has announced a new magazine for the slot car hobby called Slot Cars Magazine, with an anticipated first issue dated January 2015. The magazine will be a bi-monthly, print and online magazine published six times a year.

Hutchings states that he is "committed to bringing you the best slot car magazine you have ever seen!" Since he has chosen multi-talented painter, illustrator and builder Jairus Watson as the editor for the new publication, that's a promise that very likely will be fulfilled.

Quick Slicks High-Performance Tires


Introducing Quick Slicks

Quick Slicks are high-performance silicone tires for 1:32 slot cars.  Quick Slicks offer a combination of features that have not been available in silicone slot car tire until now.   Quick Slicks are an easy, affordable upgrade to improve your car’s performance.

Quick Slicks Features

  • Made in U.S.A.
  • Available to fit many popular 1:32 Euro-Style aluminum and magnesium “set screw” wheels from a wide variety of manufacturers including C.B. Design, NSR, Slot.it and Sloting+.   Initially Quick Slicks are available in 27 sizes with more planned for the near future.
  • Quick Slicks provide excellent grip on all racing surfaces – plastic or wood (painted).  The cleaner the racing surface, the better the grip.
  • Slip-on or Glue/true – the choice is yours.  If you’re a casual racer, gluing is not required - you can simply slip-on a pair of Quick Slicks and start racing.  If you are a more serious racer and prefer to “glue and true” your tires for maximum performance, Quick Slicks work very well with a tire adhesive such as IC2000.
  • If you do decide to go the glue/true route, Quick Slicks require less effort to do so than other silicone tires.  Same goes for (optionally) adjusting the profile where the sidewall and contact patch meet.
  • Rounded outer sidewalls on all Quick Slicks give them a realistic appearance like real tires.  The rounded outer sidewalls appear realistic regardless of a given tire’s outer diameter (o.d.) – no unrealistic, bulging sidewalls.
  • Quick Slicks designed for a specific wheel are the same width regardless of outer diameter – an important consideration when rules require tires to fit under the car body and you want to experiment with different tire diameters.
  • Quick Slicks were developed by actual 1:32 racers based on our own real-world racing experience and feedback from a large number of other 1:32 racers.
  • Quick Slicks are affordable.  In fact, they typically cost $1.00 - $2.00 per pair less than other 1:32 silicone tires (our 1:24 tires are up to $4.00 per pair less).  This is often an important consideration whether you race alone or participate in club/organized racing.


We offer a Quick Slicks Wheel Selector to assist you to identify which wheels fit a given Quick Slicks tire.  Still not sure which Quick Slicks you need for a particular application?  Give us a call (or drop us an email) and we’ll do our best to assist you.


Additional Quick Slicks Are In The Works

We’re already working hard to expand the existing Quick Slicks lineup – look for upcoming announcements as they become available.


Authorized Dealer Program


If you are a retail hobby store and would like to offer Quick Slicks to your customers, please contact us.   Please note we will not undersell our Dealers.

For more information or to place an order, please send us an email at QuickSlicks2014[at]gmail.com  (replace the "[at]" with "@") or call us at 603.753.6263.
