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.

Thinning out the herd

I am selling a multitude of very competitive cars that I no longer run. Each of them has been tricked out with quality parts. I will bring them to Tannehill's this week.

Looking to contact Bruce Thomas regarding racing tomorrow night.

Hey Bruce, send me a private message here on SCA.

Oval car under construction

Some of us played around with oval only cars at Jamey's last week and found them to be a lot of fun. Based upon the fun we had Jamey has constructed a couple of cars using the Parma Womp chassis and paper laminated East Coast Modified bodies. Not wanting to be left behind plus having a lot of leisure time on my hands I decided to build a modified coupe using a resin body and a handful of brass. This is my first attempt at a resin car and the body prep is a challenge. Lots of careful… Continue

And the winner is, everyone!

In my opinion, everyone was a winner in the 2/28 Saturday event. Several members showed up Friday afternoon to help clear Jamey's show room. I have always wanted to drive a Z turn mower so Jamey told me to mount up. He started me on a small unit( kind of like H.O. compared to the big boys) due to my rookie status. I managed to get it out to the parking lot but then turned circles for about a minute try to get it landed next to the other mowers. What I thought was going to be fun was more than I… Continue

Mystery solved

Larry made an observation today while he and I were helping with the school racing club. We have always wondered why the track would get dusty between heats even though it had been wiped down a couple of times. Larry was looking at the underside of a black chassis and noticed a large amount of dust clinging to the chassis directly behind the trailing edge of the guide. This indicated beyond a doubt the dust was in the slot and being kicked out onto the race surface. We used a shop vac and tried… Continue

Project 1957 Chevy Carrera

  Project Carrera 57 Chevy Is a car I built just because I like it. We have no class for it in our club so I didn't do a lot of modification as i was trying to use as much as possible of the stock car. But being a racer I couldn't resist trying a few things.

 I did notice that the car was equipped with 4 Brass…

New Stamped Steel 1/24 Chassis from Mossetti Racing

Here we see the first blanks of the new Mossetti Racing stamped steel chassis, these are the pieces ready for forming. 

There will ultimately be four versions of this chassis:

Patriot Sport - this chassis will be available in two versions. Just bolt in your favorite FK motor; either the full metal can version or the ProSlot version. No soldering is required. The chassis sets up perfectly for 8:28 Gear Ratio (48 Pitch). 
















This could become the new standard for entry level racing - as the unique design eliminates the tedious task of soldering in the motor by the beginning racer or raceway owner.

Patriot Striker - Two piece Chassis - C can solder in version. Motor brace not shown.




Patriot Trio - Three piece Chassis - C can solder in version. Motor brace not shown.
















The chassis material is 410 Stainless (1mm Thick) and weighs 1.3 grams lighter than JK. The chassis is hardened to over 40 Rockwell (JK is softer). All chassis will be nickel plated for ease of soldering.
 

The pin tube locations and rear axle position will be identical to the JK to make swapping out bodies simple.

More technical and ordering information will be posted as soon as it is available.

New Lola T-600 IMSA From SRC














The Lola T600 designed by Eric Broadley was introduced in 1981 for the IMSA Championship and FIA Group 6 competition. The first two cars built were purchased by the Cooke-Woods Racing team, which equipped them with the 5.7-liter Chevrolet V-8 engine. The Lola T600 was originally designed to be equipped with a choice of Porsche, Ford, BMW or Chevrolet engines.

The first North American race in which Lola T600 competed was the 100 miles of Laguna Seca, California. Brian Redman driving chassis HU-1 took the pole and ran to a dominant victory. Wins by the team were repeated at Lime Rock, Mid-Ohio, Portland and Road Atlanta.

This new 1:32 scale version by SRC reproduces driver Brian Redman's debut at Laguna Seca. It comes with the new fully transparent SRC display box.

SRC plans to offer the "T-Bird Swap Shop" IMSA Lola T600 HU4 of John Paul Jr. and the "Budweiser" IMSA Lola HU5 of Chris Cord/Jim Adams later in 2015.

MIRPA and GLSCC Restore Famous Scale Replica of Chicago's Meadowdale Raceway

After 3 months of intense labor by volunteers from Great Lakes Slot Car Club and support from Meadowdale International Raceway Preservation Association, the track donated to MIRPA by Bob Dunkle was finally ready for racing on July 4th, 2015.

One of the races held July 4th was a "Trans-Am" race commemorating the SCCA Trans-Am race held at Chicago's Meadowdale International Raceway July 1968.

Here are some photos of the completed 1/32nd scale track and the racing action.


















Congratulations and thanks to GLSCC and MIRPA for restoring and preserving this historic slot car track.

Questions should be directed to GLSCC and MIRPA (http://www.mirpa.org/).
