Buy A Car - Get A Chance To Win a Gulf Fly Truck

Slot Car Corner Canada would like to offer a great Christmas gift to one lucky customer. And winning is easy.

For each car you buy from now to the end of the year (before 8PM EST on December 31st, 2016), you will have a chance to win a fabulous FlySlot truck with the Gulf colors (a value of $99). Entering the drawing is easy and you'll be able to choose your potential winning number.

The winning number will be the one closest to the Bonus number for the December 31st Lotto 6/49 draw (from 1 to 49), as published on the Lottery Canada website. If there's a tie, the order that was placed first will determine the winner (the earlier your order, the better your chances!). Just give me the number(s) you'd like to choose in the Comments box when ordering. Start accumulating your chances now !

Slot.It Car Original Parts - A Useful Reference Section

Slot.it has a lot of reference material on its website but it's sometimes difficult to find or difficult to explain how to get there. That's why I created a new section on the Slot Car Corner Canada website showing the Car Parts Reference image for each car Slot.it has released. I hope you will find this useful. Don't hesitate to share with your slot racing friends.


Gift Certificats and Wish Lists - In Time for Christmas

If your loved ones know that you would love a slot car gift for Christmas but they don't know exactly what you're looking for, Slot Car Corner Canada has everything you need to help them.

Gift Certificates
You can tell them to get you a gift certificate(for the amount of their choice) and you will be able to choose whatever you want when the time comes to redeem it. Easy as 1-2-3 ! The Gift Certificates link is right at the top of the SCC Canada website.

Wish Lists
If your loved ones like to give you a box full of real products instead of a gift certificate, there's a second option that's even more fun. Sign in to your account and use the My Account link at the top of the website. Then, on the right, you'll see a link called Wish Lists. Just add the products you'd like to get in a wish list, send the wish list to your wife, kids or friends and they'll be able to choose from the list and you'll get a surprise for Christmas.

It's time for you to make sure you get nice gifts in December. Keep on having fun!

CG SlotCars - 3D-Printed Wheel Inserts

Always looking for quality products to expand our inventory, we have recently added CG SlotCars wheel inserts and guide adapters to our website, and they have been very popular.

All CG SlotCars products are very high-quality 3D-printed items that will make you ask how they can be so precise and realistic. If you're looking for inserts to complement our 14mm and 15mm CB Design Insert wheels, look no further. You have found your insert paradise! (and we have knock-offs too).

Also, if you want to replace the original guide in your Carrera cars, CG SlotCars is making guide adapters for them. Just remove the stock guide assembly, insert and glue the new adapter and you'll be able to use any third-part guide from Slot.it, MR Slotcar, ThunderSlot or other well-known brands.

All available models are now in stock.

Minnow 18 - A New FF050 Motor - NOW IN STOCK !

About 18 months ago, we introduced the Piranha motor as an affordable alternative to the popular Slot.it V12/3 short can motor. And since its introduction, it's been wildly successful. Proxy races are even built around this motor and enthusiasts are buying them like there's no tomorrow.

But for those who need a milder speed option for a FF050 (slimline) motor, it was difficult to find something on the market. That's where the new Minnow 18 motor comes into play.

The motor is rated at 17,800krpm @ 12V and has a torque of 45g*cm. The motor shaft has a length of 9.6mm and a diameter of 1.5mm.

Most F1 cars released in recent years, classic or modern, use this FF050 form factor but they usually deliver too much power for smaller tracks and the speed is not realistic. Many times, less speed means more fun and that's exactly what the Minnow 18 motor will bring to those cars.

M/T Racing - The M/T-5 Long Can Motor is Back

Slot Car Corner Canada now has the M/T-5 long can motor (FK-180) back in stock. If you're looking for a long can motor that has good torque but a lower speed rating at 15.2k, this M/T-5 motor is perfect. For more realistic speeds and shorter tracks, you will like this motor. We have plenty of them in stock.

* The motors we have now in stock are black (same specs)

Adjustable Front Axle Mounts - Back in Stock

The Adjustable Front Axle Mounts for 3/32" axles are now back in stock, after a short period of unavailability. They're easy to add to any chassis that does not offer this very important feature for optimal tuning.

For more information on how to adjust the front axle for maximum performance, see this tutorial.

New Generation of Motors From Slot.It

The recent V12/4 motors from Slot.it, following in the footsteps of the previous V12/3 generation, are now available.

The 21k (SIMX15) and 23k (SIMX16) versions will perfectly replace any short can motor in the cars you own. You can't go wrong with Slot.it motors.

Slot.It - New Wheel Numbering Scheme

Slot.it has decided to change the way its wheels are coded, to make their dimensions easier to identify with the product code. We have used a similar method for our own CB Design wheels since the beginning so we welcome this change from Slot.it.

The change will be gradually seen on packaging starting in 2017, with the old codes still visible for a while (see the new numbering scheme below).




Here's the complete statement from Slot.it about this change:

In order to make it easier for our end user customers, following many requests, we have decided to replace old codes with better ones for our popular wheels. The old product code, to make transition easier, will still be printed on the product packaging.

Here is how it works:
We have taken the three important dimensions (diameter, width, hub thickness), and used them to create the code.

For example, our wheel WH1110-Al is 17.3mm diameter, 8.2mm width, 1.5mm hub; it becomes W17308215A

  • W for wheel
  • diameter in mm 17.3 --> 173
  • width in mm 8.2mm --> 082
  • hub thickness in mm 1.5mm --> 15
  • A for aluminium


Starting todayd, the codes for the following will be replaced as explained above.
For the following items, BAR CODE WILL change, due to removal of wheel inserts.

  • PA17-Pl ----------------> W15808225P
  • PA24-Als -------------> W15808215A
  • PA43-Als --------------> W16508215A
  • PA43-Pl ----------------> W16508225P
  • PA33-Als --------------> W14308015A
  • PA20-Als --------------> W14411515A


We believe that this change will make things easier for everyone - even if we understand that there will be some initial perplexity. To minimize this, the stickers on the bags will carry BOTH old and new codes. Effective January 2017, all Slot.it wheels will be coded according to this rule.

Purolator Shipping - Not Available During The Holidays

Purolator shipping is used more and more by Slot Car Corner Canada customers. And that's a good thing because you get your packages faster for roughly the same cost in most cases. If you haven't tried it yet, don't forget to choose this shipping option for your next order.

Since I'm using the Purolator pickup point at my employer's office to provide this service (with their permission, of course), I won't be able to ship via Purolator during the upcoming Holiday period. Purolator shipping won't be available from December 21nd to January 4th. Canada Post will be the courier to choose during this time.
