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.

Set screw connections for Braid

I saw this posted and thought I would put it out there for you all to see. This method works very well for me but, tinning the wires is a must !  Click the link below.

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…
