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.

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

Exciting News from Studio 65

Studio 65 of Toronto announces their newest 1/32 model, the iconic 1951 Ferrari 340 America Vignale Spider.

The model features:
  • Hand cast accurate 1/32 scale resin body
  • Hand built brass chassis
  • Front motor with drive shaft
  • Hand detailed full driver figure
  • High density resin wheels with set screws
  • 40 shore urethane trued tires
  • TSRF guide
The Ferrari 340 America Spider is available pre-painted in your choice of red or yellow and are ready for purchase.

Here are some images of the completed kits:
































Here the new Studio 65 Ferrari 340 
poses with the earlier Jaguar XK120





















The 340 was the first of the "America" series of Ferraris; This series represents cars that were marketed towards the American market through Ferrari's American Importer, Luigi Chinetti of the North American Racing Team (NART). The 1:1 Ferrari 340 America was designed to use the new 375 horsepower Lampredi-designed V12 developed for Formula One racing. Only 11 of this model were originally built by Vignale.

A Ferrari 340 America Spider (Chassis number 0196A) competed in the 1952 LeMans 24 Hours driven by the French team of Louis Rosier and Maurice Trintignant. The highlight victory for the 340 America came at the 1951 Mille Miglia when Chassis number 0082A driven by Luigi Villoresi took the overall win.

It is worth noting that one of the 5 Ferrari 340 America Spiders known to exist today (Chassis number 0140A) was sold for more than 2.5 million U.S. dollars at a Pebble Beach auction in 2010.
