Rules update discussion

Jim, the F1 class didn't change, Camel GT Bob is allowing the 3d chassis but you have to use the stock interior. The interior can be trimmed some. PLEASE Read the rules thoroughly before making any changes to verify.  Also we are now using the club Motor list and the watts have been adjusted for some classes including CGT.  I hope the motor list doesn't create issues between our clubs, as said before IF you guys are running motors NOT on the list, please let me know what they are ?  IF you…See More

"Looks like at least four of the Hot Slots group will make it, weather permitting. I might even build an F1 car to try out. Really enjoy racing on that oval, and Jamey's track is just a blast."

Pat has the Square Donuts taken care of, Joe has the pizza order under control and I will bring the anchovies,cola,plates, and utensils. Jamey has installed the Slot.it axle kit in the COT cars so we should be ready to rock and roll.

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!

Special OCSRA three race event on Saturday Feb. 21,2015

Our oval racing is so popular that once again, Jamey has offered to host a Saturday event. Agenda will consist of club owned COT cars in an IROC format with qualifying to determine heats. This will not be a team race. F1 will be individually owned cars with no qualifying and random sort for heats. The roadcourse will host the CamelGT/ Group5 cars incorporating 2 minute heats. . Square Donuts,pizza,and cola will be provided by OCSRA. As always there will be no entry fee. This could possibly be… Continue

Upcoming club expenses

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe at the 1/7/15 race, it was agreed to purchase the needed supplies for the oval. Trackmate markets the USB adapter(dongle) and the interface cable. Total cost for both items would be $50.00 prior to shipping. It is possible these items could be purchased elsewhere for less money but getting from Trackmate guarantees compatibility Trackmate so no muss, no fuss.

Please add to the list of items that come to mind and we can compile a final list. Once all… Continue

My view from behind the wheel(trigger).

A lot of our members had been looking forward to January 3rd for several weeks. Well, the event is now in the books and I am pretty certain it will be long remembered. Once again, Jamey offered his show room which is an ideal location with plenty of room for the track, pit tables, and the donuts. I had predicted a turnout of 20 and was surprised to have 24 smiling faces walk through the door. Open practice on the oval was from 9:00-10:00 with all four lanes being continually used. Larry and… Continue

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…

NuArt CanAm Pirelli World Challenge Championships

For the 2015 Pirelli World Challenge racing schedule, four special races featuring modernized CanAm replicas will be held on four separate tracks in the United States.  The tracks where the NuArt CanAm cars will be racing at are Circuit of the Americas, Road America, Miller Motorsports Park, and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  Each track will host two thirty minute races featuring the CanAm replicas.  And, despite being replicas augmented with modern safety features, they are equipped with…

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
