A Great Start to 2014
The new year has begun just like 2013 ended, with a lot of activity here at the Slot Car Corner Canada headquarters. More and more slot racers are aware that there's a nice alternative to buying overseas and over the border for their slot car needs. Great customer service, reasonable prices and sensible shipping options, that's how we do things here at Slot Car Corner Canada. Welcome aboard!


Vacation Time
Please note that order shipping will be suspended from March 1st to March 9th. Slot cars are a great hobby and we're having a lot of fun but vacation time with the family is important too. We're taking a break and we'll be back with renewed energy to continue offering you the best customer service, the only one we're known for! During this period, please continue to place your orders and they'll all be shipped when we return.
 

Own The Le Mans 1968 Winning Car

The next Limited Edition car from Slot.it will be officially released on March 3rd and should be available for shipping from Slot Car Corner Canada around March 10th. This is one of most recognizable race car in the history of motor sports. This particular Ford GT40 won the 1968 race at Le Mans, and it was the third of four consecutive wins for this legendary car model.

We already have many pre-orders for this car and since the quantity will be limited worldwide, we won't be able to get as many as we wanted to. Don't procrastinate if you want to own a piece of Le Mans history. Once they're gone, they probably won't be coming back. Order here.
 

A New Wheel in the F1-Style Series

The recent addition of 14mm wheels in our CB Design family was the chance to add a missing wheel to our F1-Style series. We already had a 14x12mm wheel for the rear and a more standard 15x8mm wheel for the front. But the inner diameters were not the same and it was not as pretty as it could be, even if the performance was there. With the new 14x8mm wheel at the front, your single-seaters will look the part and run just as good as they did before.


New Wheel Inserts from Slot.It

Speaking of wheels, Slot.it released some time ago new wheel inserts designed for Group C cars, adding to an already impressive lineup of inserts.

The set includes 6 inserts (4 for standard 15mm wheels and 2 for slightly bigger wheels) and you can also choose between «Diamond Spoke» and «Venturi Cover» designs, all of that for only $6.60.



New Shipment of Lead Sheets

The last time this newsletter was published, we were out of stock on lead sheets, for both thicknesses we offer (0.032" and 0.063"). Since then, a new shipment has come in and we have plenty of stock for all your needs.

Just remember that lead weight is not meant to hide a tuning problem, it's there to help an already fine-tuned car to behave even better. Don't start by adding lead, this has to be one of the last stages when tuning a car.

 

Super Tires Clearance

As Super Tires are upgraded to include rounded outer sidewalls, we have limited quantities of "Classic" (silicone) and "Yellow Dog" (urethane) Super Tires with the original "square" sidewalls at reduced prices. If you like to profile your own tires or just like a good bargain, don't procrastinate because once they're gone, they're gone. See what we have in stock here.
 
 

Slot.It 2014 Parts Catalog

Slot.it is a great company, always looking for a better way to help us in building faster and better cars. Their parts lineup is impressive and can sometimes be a little intimidating for beginners (and more experienced racers!).

That's why their online 2014 Parts Catalog in PDF format is a great reference tool for those questions you have when you need to choose the right product for your current need. Everything is listed in this catalog, along with some great technical explanations and reference charts. Print a copy and keep it near you workbench. At Slot Car Corner Canada, we have most of those parts in stock.

 

DMC Decals

DMC Decals are probably the best waterslide decals on the market. The printing quality of the sponsor logos, numbers and other markings is top-notch and the whites will stay white, even when used on a dark-colored body.

Two weeks ago, we got several sheets back in stock. The Â«Various» series is very popular as you can get a nice variety of logos on a single sheet. American, French, British and other sponsors' decals are now in stock in greater quantities. If you're looking for numbers and/or roundels, look no further, we have what it takes.
 


New and Simple LMP Guide

When Slot.it introduced their latest LMP cars, they had to rethink the guide to be able to reproduce the extremely low noses of those modern cars. In order to do that, they made us work harder to change braids and if we didn't want to tinker with a soldering iron, we had to use their pre-packaged braid especially for this guide. Not the best of situations when you're in the middle of an important race.

But Slot.it, as we said earlier, is always looking for a better way... and they found one in this case. This new LMP guide will be able to use any braid and won't require us to punch a hole in it. With a simple set screw, we'll be able to secure the braid to the guide. Also, a new blade design is supposed to give a smoother ride on all tracks. Why not give it a try?!

The first version of the guide (Rev 1) is now in our Clearance Items section, if you're looking for a bargain.
 

New Cars in Stock    

Here's a list of some of the new cars we got (or will get very soon) since the last newsletter was sent out. Maybe you missed some of them (because you have not subscribed to our Facebook page!). Or maybe you just want to run one of those beauties on your track, just for fun. Whatever the reason, they're all waiting for you !

A NEW TRACK AT SLOT CAR CORNER CANADA

Road Construction Ahead

You already know that we, at Slot Car Corner Canada, are not just selling slot car products. We're using, testing, developing and liking them too. Slot car racing is a passion that we want to share. Our «old» wood track was built in 2006, to replace our plastic track that was installed in 2003. After so many years with the same layout, it was time for a change. The old track was taken down (not without some regret) and a new one is slowly becoming reality. You can now see what the layout will look like. The previous layout had a scenic theme to it and was built on a table. The new one is slightly smaller to make room for people around it (!) and will be a pure racing track, with traditional triangular supports and borders all around.

CNC-machined from a DXF file using five sheets of MDF, it will be built from nice pieces and not one corner has the same radius. As a matter of fact, most corner have changing radiuses. The track footprint is about 19' x 9' at its widest and will have 4 lanes, with a total length of 57'. Of course, we'll use our own double-sided tape and copper braid to get power to the cars. Can't wait to drive the first lap!

Buy Local and Stop Worrying

The value of the Canadian dollar is going down and the purchases you're making overseas and across the border suddenly seem less and less interesting? Our pricing is in Canadian currency so you don't have to become a day trader to budget your slot car purchases, as long as you buy from a Canadian source. Buy local, everyone is winning !
 

Made in Canada

We're located in Canada and we should be proud that many of the products that are sold on our website are made and/or designed in Canada. Slot Car Corner Canada has even been instrumental in a lot of those products. To make them more visible, we now have a special section if you want to show your support for Canadian slot racing products.

Do you have SCC candy in your slot car box ?

The SCC Candy is now a well-known addition to all our orders and we've seen some racers keeping some bags in storage for big race nights. By swallowing the recommended dosage before the start, you'll build the momentum needed to win the race, even against the fastest racers in your club. Try it, you'll be amazed at how it can work to your advantage!
