Autumn colors are here, the sun is disappearing earlier and the first snow flakes will soon fall from the sky. Slot racing is the perfect hobby for those colder nights ahead. And it's also time for the Québec slot racing team to travel down south to defend its title in Connecticut for the annual Area 51 Raceway 24-hour race.

Please note that all orders and emails received between Thursday October 22 and Monday October 26 will be processed on Tuesday night.

SCC Canada Proxy Race - Last Chance !


The 2016 edition of the great SCC Canada Proxy Race, featuring an all-Canadian lineup, will begin in January 2016. Your car must be received no later than December 14th, 2015 so it's your last chance to enter.

Please see a previous newsletter to read everything you need to know to be in the running for the title of «Best Slot Car Tuner in Canada». Registration is still open but there are only 6 spots left in the race. Don't procrastinate.

Racer Sideways - Wheels, Axles & Bushings


We now have in stock some new products from Racer Sideways, to make tuning your FlySlot trucks and many other cars easier. First of all, you can finally replace the plastic wheel on those trucks with quality aluminium wheels, front and rear. Stop fighting those out-of-round wheels to get your truck running good!

In addition to the four lengths already offered by Slot.it (45, 48, 51 and 54mm), Racer Sideways now offers two more lengths for 3/32" axles (2.38mm). You can now buy 59 and 62mm axles, for those trucks or for any other wider car you might be building. Finally, they have added some conical bronze bushings to their line of tuning parts. With less friction than standard ones, those bronze bushings are a great replacement for a better-running car.

SCC «Car-Go-Fast» Lighting Kit

Our own SCC "Car-Go-Fast" lighting kit includes all components and schematic to duplicate SCC's race-proven design. Featuring extra bright LED's, our lighting kits have been used in our 3 World Record setting endurance cars. At this year's (2015) Michigan 24 Hour Endurance Race, 5 of the 6 teams competing used this lighting kit. Next week in Connecticut, all teams will be using this kit for the Area 51 24-hour race, including our own Team Québec, the only team representing Canada. This is a "must-have" kit if you are serious about racing in the dark. Features include:

  • Larger capacitor - lights remain on longer during track calls and deslots
  • Voltage regulator - light output is more consistent across a wider range of voltage
  • Two LED colors - white (front) and red (rear)

Now features polarity independent design - simplifies wiring and improves reliability.
 

Note: This is an advanced kit requiring fabrication and soldering skills involving delicate electronic components. This kit is NOT intended for beginners! Detailed schematic included.

New Racer Sideways Accessories

Racer Sideways is always expanding its wonderful Group 5 car collection with new models on a regular basis. But they're also now working hard by adding accessories to complement the decor around your track. Umbrella girls and vintage gas pumps are just the beginning of this new line of accessories. We have received a new Playboy Umbrella Girl (we already had the JPS and Martini versions) and a wonderful Gulf vintage gas pump.

 

Lone Star Le Mans at COTA

The Circuit of the Americas in Austin TX is a fantastic modern race track. Home of the F1 and MotoGP world championships, it's also the venue for a round of the FIA World Endurance Championship featuring the cars that race at Le Mans each year. The 6-hour race was also accompanied this year by a round of the Tudor United SportsCar Championship, the North American endurance championship.

I was lucky enough to be there for the entire race weekend with slot racing friends and I brought back some nice pictures, featuring some of the cars we can buy and race on our own basement and garage tracks. I hope you enjoy looking at some of those pics from my Flickr account.

New SCC Canada Waterslide Decals

We are proud to announce the availability of our own brand new quality waterslide decals!

Show your Canadian pride on your slot cars by adding some decals from Slot Car Corner Canada, CB Design wheels, Piranha motors, Quick Slicks tires and Canada/Québec flags and symbols (hey, I'm a proud «Québécois» too!).

Pricing is VERY low, below our cost, because we want you to show the world where your slot cars are from. Use them with pride!
 



Get a FREE decal sheet !

You can also get a free SCC Canada decal sheet. All you have to do is to buy a white unpainted car or body kit and I will add a free SCC Canada decal sheet with each one. This way, you'll have a starter kit for decals.

All white unpainted car kits are listed here. You can also get other decals from DMC Decals right here: numbers, sponsors, etc.

Slot.It 4WD Parts

Slot.It released recently its first functional 4WD traction car: the Audi R18 e-tron quattro test car from 2013.

There's no doubt more of these will be coming up. The technology is very advanced and when driving the car, you can feel the power on all wheels, letting you get on the power earlier when exiting a turn, getting less sliding.

With this new technology comes many new parts for tuning and getting the most out of the car. Slot Car Corner Canada now carries all those parts so you can repair, tune and explore the many possibilities of Slot.it 4WD cars.

Area 51 Raceway - 24-Hour Race

The Fall season now brings the annual tradition of racing 24 hours straight on the fabulous Area 51 Raceway in Connecticut. 5 lanes, 5 teams of 4 or 5 drivers and 5 Group C cars that have to withstand the rigours of a gruelling 24-hour race, including a 5-hour night racing stint following a 5-hour dawn racing period.

Last year, Team Québec, proudly representing Canada, has won the race, beating the home team. This year, we will be back to try and keep the title north of the border. Of course, this will be very difficult, everyone wanting to win this race badly. The team from Michigan will want to forget the mechanical problems they had last year as they have fast racers on their team and have the potential to win it all. The same goes for the Connecticut home team, of course, who probably has the best car builder in North America on its team (I should know, he's my teammate on the Slot Car Corner team!) and some very experienced racers on their roster. And I sure don't want to downplay the two other teams that gained a lot of experience in 2014 and will be ready more than ever to compete.

We'll be there the entire weekend. This is why orders placed between Thursday October 22nd to Monday October 26th will be processed on Tuesday. Wish us luck, can't wait to meet our friends and spend some quality time with everyone!

Super Tires - CRAZY Pricing for Bulk Purchases !

You already know that I won't be restocking Super Tires, because Quick Slicks silicone tires and Paul Gage urethane tires can produce similar or slightly 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.
