Please note that I will be away for a short vacation at the end of the month. ORDERS PLACED FROM FEBRUARY 23rd WILL BE SHIPPED ON MARCH 1st.

Sorry for this interruption. Slot car racing is a great hobby but quality time with family members is even more important. Thank you for your understanding.

Black CB Design Wheels - Back in Stock

Black CB Design wheels are very popular and some combinations of models/sizes have been out of stock for a while now. I'm happy to report that the missing black wheels are now back in stock, especially in the 15x8mm size. It's time to renew your inventory.

Of course, we also have enough stock in all sizes for silver Insert Wheels, 5-Spoke Wheels5-Spoke Racing Wheels, LMP Wheels, Stock Car Wheels, Classic Steel Wheels, F1-Style Wheels, etc. 

MR Slotcar Suspension Kits - Now Available


Along with the first official livery of the MR Slotcar F1 GTR (see next section), you can now buy the very sophisticated front suspension system to add independent front wheels with their own suspension.

You can even add camber to each wheel. The possibilities are endless and I bet you haven't finished testing all the possible configurations to find the best handling one for those wonderful Canadian-designed cars.

I have created a separate section on the website for you to buy all suspension from MR Slotcar. You can add front suspension, rear suspension (with springs and/or foam cushions) or both.

In addition to the suspension kits, we have received a box full of spare parts from MR Slotcar. Mirrors, hard plastic chassis for wood tracks, brass pinions, replacement motors, screws, etc. Take a look at the long list of parts from MR Slotcar and you'll find something to enhance the performance of your car.

New Anglewinder Motor Pod from Racer Sideways

Now in stock, the new Racer Sideways anglewinder hard motor mount, with adapters for standard and flat motors, and with adapters for 0.0, 0.5 and 1.0mm offset configurations. This new motor pod eliminates the famous «Anglewinder Hop» and is compatible with all Group 5 cars from Racer Sideways. This is a must-have item for every serious racer out there. And you're one of them!

(because it's a new item, stock is low at the distributor right now but more are coming soon)

SCC Canada Proxy Race - Round 3



Round 3 of the SCC Canada Proxy 2016 was completed on February 5th in Cornwall ON, on the famous Autodrome. As usual, it was a very entertaining round and the «Pherrari» family was there to oversee the proceedings.

Christian Mayer (Montréal QC) won this round, followed by Ron Todhunter (Sherwood Park AB) and Dean Maskiew (Winnipeg MB). In the cumulative standings, Benoit Harvey (Québec QC) is still leading as we're heading to Round 4 in Picton ON, with Bob Chapman as our host.

Benoit Harvey (Québec QC) is still leading the pack after 3 rounds. But with 7 other rounds to go all across the country, this race is still up for grabs for a lot of car owners. Stay tuned!

For the complete results and more information, see the Canada Slot Car forum.

Avant Slot - Red Bull Dakar Trucks

The Avant Slot Red Bull Dakar trucks from the 2008 race are now in stock and you can order them right now. The 4-wheel and 6-wheel versions are available. MSRP is CA$125 and CA$145 respectively. I'm selling them for $104 and $119 at Slot Car Corner Canada, a nice discount. Quantities will be very limited at first but other trucks are already on their way.



 

Racer Sideways Group 5 BMW 320 - The Review

The latest releases in the fabulous Group 5 series from Racer Sideways are the BMW 320 cars that raced at the Nurburgring in 1977, wearing Jagermeister colors. Harry Wise, from Home Racing World, has written a nice review of those cars. As usual, pictures are plenty, there's a video and Harry has this simple no-nonsense approach for car reviews that we like very much, where fun comes before everything else. Thank you Harry!


 

Le Mans Winner 1995 - F1 GTR - MR Slotcar


After a long wait, the MR Slotcar F1 GTR that won the overall title in Le Mans in 1995 is finally here and ready to ship. Featuring the Ueno Clinic livery, you can relive the 1995 race with this stunning car. You absolutely can't go wrong with MR Slotcar cars. They're well-designed, well-made and they're fast out of the box. And they are also designed by the only Canadian slot car maker. Don't miss out on this one!

Policar Lotus 72 - Coming Soon (again!)

Announced release dates have become something of a joke in the slot car industry as most of them are largely «unrespected». This was also the case for the Policar Lotus 72, which was supposed to be available in the first half of 2015, then in the second half of the year, then at the end of January 2016. Yet, here we are in February 2016, without this car in our collections. Since a manufacturing problem was caught just in time by Slot.it (Policar's partner) before the cars were shipped to most distributors, all cars have been repaired and the cars are supposed to arrive this week in North America and will soon be travelling all the way to Québec QC. When this car finally hits our shelves, this will be a reason to throw a big celebration. Pre-order yours now if it's not already done, this car will probably be gone in a few hours.

Villeneuve's Ferrari 312 T4 & Jabouille's Renault RS10


They are (were) here... and it was a long wait for everyone. SRC created some fantastic reproductions of the Ferrari 312 T4 and of the Renault RS10 that Villeneuve and Jabouille drove in the 1979 F1 season. Despite very important shortcomings and problems on the mechanical side, these cars proved very popular and have been selling like hotcakes everywhere.

As another proof of the extraordinary legacy the French-Canadian driver left all around the world after his death, Villeneuve's Ferrari is already sold out worldwide and I have received notice from the distributor that I won't get any more after the initial shipment. If you pre-ordered the car, it's already on its way to you. If you haven't pre-ordered, all Ferrari's have now been sold, only a few Renault's are left on the shelves. Act fast!

M/T Racing Motors - Have More Fun By Going Slower


You track is too short for those ultra-fast motors some manufacturers put in their more recent cars? You want more control and more realistic speeds? You're tired of flying broken parts? We still have in stock a lot of M/T Racing motors rated at less than 15,000 rpm. The M/T-1 motor is a short can Mabuchi motor and the M/T-SL1 motor is a slim can perfect for those smaller open-wheel cars that are too fast and too fragile.

Slower motors often mean closer racing, realistic speeds, more control and a whole lot of fun! Try it, I'm sure you will agree.

Longer Axles - 59 & 62mm


Slot.it has quality 3/32" axles that are available in different lengths (45, 48, 51 and 54mm). Those are the axles we recommend for our CB Design wheels. But if you need longer axles for bigger cars or trucks, we now also have in stock 59 and 62mm axles from Racer Sideways. From 45 to 62mm, we have you covered!
 

CanAm Proxy Race 2016 - It's A Start !


The CanAm Proxy Race started its life in 2008 as the Canadian Proxy Race and was created by our good friend Van LaPointe. The race had some golden years with over 64 cars entered in three different categories and that's when it became the CanAm Proxy Race with 10 races on the North American continent. Despite a growing number of proxy races, its popularity is still strong and 8 years after his creation, 30 cars are entered in the 2016 edition, coming from the best proxy racers in this part of the world. This is truly a very competitive series.

(Picture from the first Canadian Proxy Race in 2008, at Circuit du Grand Rocher in Québec QC)


Slot Car Corner Canada has been a supporter of the race since the beginning and my basement in Québec QC is the only place that hosted a race every year, on three different tracks. I'm proud to continue the tradition in 2016 by hosting one of the Canadian rounds of this great race. In addition, if you look closely at the entry list below, you'll see that I'm the only participant from the Great White North (talk about pressure!).

And if you look even more closely, you'll also see two things that have much significance to us at Slot Car Corner. The vast majority of the car builders have chosen our own CB Design wheels as their wheels of choice when it comes to speed and reliability. On even years, the CanAm Proxy rules state that silicone tires are mandatory. Again, more than two thirds of the racers chose our own Quick Slicks tires over the competition.

This means that when you buy products created and made by Slot Car Corner and Slot Car Corner Canada, you are buying quality products that will give you a competitive edge when racing. No doubt about it!

A New Slot Car Magazine - Made in Canada

Slot car racing is alive and well in Alberta, mainly in the Edmonton area, where a nice group of racers is having fun with their GETCARS club track and other tracks around the city. Ronald Todhunter (Concours winner for the SCC Canada Proxy Race 2016) has decided to take this one step further and create a new online magazine called Slot Car Mods, «everybody's slot car magazine».

The first official edition of the magazine will be released on March 20, 2016. To make sure you don't miss the first issue, you just have to go to the Slot Car Mods website and subscribe. It's completely free and you get your money back if you're not satisfied (!), no questions asked.

Super Tires - CRAZY Pricing for Bulk Purchases !

You already know that I'm not restocking Super Tires, because Quick Slicks silicone tires and Paul Gage urethane tires can produce similar or better results for much less money.

This is why you have been able to buy Super Tires at clearance prices all summer long ($5/pair instead of the MSRP of over $10/pair). Over 500 pairs found a new home this way and I now need to get rid of the almost 1300 pairs left in inventory.

You'll be able to get reduced pricing if you buy large quantities of Super Tires in bulk*.

If you buy over 100 pairs, pricing will go down to $4/pair.
If you buy over 250 pairs, pricing will go down to $3/pair.


Of course, that's WAY lower than the cost for those tires. Dealer purchases are welcome, of course. This clearance pricing is valid on available inventory only. First come, first serve. Get your club members together and grab those tires before they're all gone.

* Tires won't be packaged individually. Each size will be put into a small resealable bag with the model number written on the bag.
