This FAQ is now available directly on the website, if you need to get back to some information.


Quick Slicks T-Shirt Giveaway - We Have Winners !


We have the name of our two winners that will receive a brand new Quick Slicks t-shirt for free. They were randomly chosen from all customers who have ordered Quick Slicks tires since their introduction. Congratulations to Sébastien Carrier (QC) and Alan Clarkson (ON). You will soon receive your t-shirts in the mail.

Quick Slicks tires are made of silicone and are easier to sand and profile than other well-known brands. They are available for every model of the CB Design Wheels family and more models are currently in production. Stay tuned!
 
 


MR Slotcar - The McLaren F1 GTR is Almost Here !


We have been waiting for them for a long time but the McLaren F1 GTR models from MR Slotcar will soon be released. Pricing is now known and you can pre-order the models that interest you. We already have a long list of pre-orders and it will be a pleasure to add your name to the list. No need to pay now, we'll contact you when the cars are available for shipping and we'll send an invoice then.

An All-Canadian Proxy Race ?


The Canadian slot car community is alive and well. There are active groups of racers in many cities and areas of the country, as well as many home racers that are discovering the many faces of this wonderful hobby. Wonderful tracks can be found in many Canadian homes.

MR Slotcar is a Canadian slot car brand with very nice competitive cars. CB Design, another proud Canadian company, makes the best third-party wheels on the market today, along with some tools and accessories. Finally, Paul Gage has the widest variety of urethane tires for all cars out there. And of course, Slot Car Corner Canada is right here, with great products and service for all Canadian slot racers.

This is why I'm thinking we could organize an all-Canadian proxy race, on Canadian tracks, for Canadian slotters, with Canadian products: MR Slotcar cars, CB Design wheels, Paul Gage tires. Slot Car Corner Canada would be happy to sponsor this proxy race by offering participants a «Proxy Bundle» with a MR Slotcar Mazda 787B, some CB Design wheels and Paul Gage tires at a special price.

What do you think? Would you participate in this proxy race? If there's enough interest out there, I will certainly make it a reality. Send me an email at slotcarcorner.ca@gmail.com to let me know you're interested.
 

Proxy Race ?
If you're not familiar with proxy racing, here's an article that was published in our September 2013 newsletter that explains this great concept. You can also find other useful information in our Newsletter archives.

 



Unpainted White Kit - Mazda 787B - SPECIAL PRICE !


We have been able to get our hands on a nice quantity of MR Slotcar Mazda 787B Unpainted white kits at a good price and we want you to get a good price too, despite our dollar's descent these days. Instead of the current retail pricing of $69, you can get yours for only $49. It comes ready to be painted, with all transparent parts and other accessories already removed from the body. Of course, the chassis is also complete, with all mechanical parts ready to race.

We also have many parts available if you want to tune the car to your own preferences. Many Slot.it and Slot Car Corner parts are also compatible with MR Slotcar cars.

This would be a great start to an All-Canadian Proxy Race entry, by the way !


 

Canadian Dollar Continues Its Decline
Unfortunately for some, fortunately for others, the Canadian dollar hasn't been doing good compared to the US dollar in the last year. The decline has picked up some steam in the last few weeks and replacing sold items in our inventory is getting expensive, most of our suppliers being in the USA. Pricing has been adjusted on some products and we'll have to modify the price of more products as the situation continues to progress. In spite of the difficult situation for all Canadian stores buying from the US, our intention is to continue to offer you better value for your Canadian dollar.

For your information
Today, January 18th, the exchange rate is 1.1986, before the bank conversion fee of around 2-3%. That means that if you buy US$100 worth of products in the US, you will pay more than CA$122 (before shipping, customs fees and taxes, etc.).

 



Transparent Parts for Slot.It Cars


We have recently added to our Slot.it inventory transparent parts for most cars. Along with the tearproof parts that were added last November, you now have access to all needed parts to give back the original appearance to your race cars that have been scarred by competitive racing (or a trip to the concrete floor!).

We also have many more spare parts for Slot.it cars right here.

 
 



CB Design Wheels - All Back In Stock


Looking for the best third-party wheels on the market? Look no further. Our own CB Design wheelsmade right here in Québec, will give you performance, good looks and tight tolerances for a vibration-less ride. And they also proved many many (many!) times in the past that they can withstand the rigours of endurance racing, with numerous 24-hour victories since their introduction 5 years ago.

We recently added a big shipment to our inventory, with all Insert wheels available and also all 5-Spoke Racing wheels back in stock in all available sizes. Replacing the original wheels on your cars by high-performance wheels like CB Design wheels is probably the most important change you can make for a better car.



 
 
 


Unpainted Group 5 Cars from Racer Sideways


If you're looking to create an original livery for Group 5 cars from Racer Sideways, we now have in stock the Lancia Beta, the Ferrari 512BB, the BMW M1 and the Capri Turbo in kit form for you.

They all come with a completely functional chassis, a white unpainted body and all transparent parts and accessories for a complete car kit.


 
 
 

 

Paul Gage Tire Selector Is Growing Fast, Just Like Our Inventory


Our Paul Gage Tire Selector continues to grow by leaps and bounds. We just added a looooong list of Carrera, Scalextric and Fly cars to our exclusive tool that will help you choose the right Paul Gage tire for the cars in your collection. And we'll continue to update it as we're able to test more and more tires (see the image below for an example of how the Tire Selector works).

Also, we now have larger quantities of all Paul Gage tires in stock. With over 1500 pairs of Paul Gage tires on our shelves, you should be able to find what you're looking for. And at $4/pair, they are a very affordable upgrade to any car.


 

 

Racer Ferrari P4 Lithograph and Booklet


Racer has released a very nice lithograph called «Legendary Ferrari P4». The lithograph is a limited edition, with only 1508 numbered copies made. We'll have some of them in stock very soon. After the pre-orders are fulfilled, only two will still be available. Act fast.

The numerated lithograph is also accompanied by a booklet with the complete P4's history during 1967 World Championship written by the Italian journalist Mario Donnini. All cars on the lithograph are Racer models photographed by Giacomo Grazioli of Amazingslot. Its dimensions are 100 x 70 cm (frame not included).

The booklet is a 44-page publication, with dimensions of 15.0 x 10.5 cm. It's multilingual: Italian, English, French, Spanish and German.

 

 


Hudy Products Are Now in Stock


Hudy products are high-quality tools. They're mostly geared towards radio-controlled vehicles (R/C) both they also have some slot car products. Their tire truer is still considered to be the best on the market and you won't find a more useful pinion press or pinion puller than the Hudy. Small, well-made and very simple to use. I've been using those for many years and I don't want to use anything else.

We're now an official Hudy reseller and we have their slot car products in stock.
 

 


The Next Matra MS670 From Slot.It


The next Matra MS670 to be released from Slot.it will be the #9 car that finished 3rd at Le Mans in 1974. Expected release date is September 2015. You can reserve yours now.

Bear in mind that pricing is subject to change, depending on the currency exchange rate at the time of release.
 

 

Make Your Choice From Our Large Slot.It Inventory


As time goes on, we're always adding to our already impressive Slot.it inventory. If you're looking for spare tearproof parts, EVO6 chassis, gears, guides, motors, transparent parts, electronic accessories, HRS parts, motor mounts, axles, conversion kits, tires, wheels, inserts, etc., chances are good we have them in stock. Modify your cars to make them faster, easier to drive or just plain more fun. We have what it takes. And if we don't, just ask us and we'll be able to add the missing part to our inventory pretty fast.

Slot Car Corner Canada is definitely THE place for Slot.It products in Canada. No doubt about it.
