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!

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…

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…

The countdown begins

The special oval/roadcourse event at Jamey's is three weeks from today. 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.

Ask Jamey

Jamey came up with a very neat way to apply Shoe Goo. I don't want to steal his thunder so ask him to show/explain his answer to this messy procedure.
Jamey, this is brilliant!
