Summer is almost over and we'll be going back to our basements to work on those slot cars to get ready for the new racing season. Whatever the kind of racing you do, I'll be here to ship what you need to make your cars more fun to run. Please note that I'll be away during the Labour Day weekend. All orders and emails received between Friday (4th) and Monday (7th) will be processed on Monday night.

SCC Canada Proxy Race - 2016 Edition


The first-ever SCC Canada Proxy Race, featuring an all-Canadian lineup, was a great success and the 2016 race is already in the works and will begin in January 2016. Your car must be received no later than December 14th, 2015 in order to be able to participate in the 10-round race across Canada.

Please see our previous newsletter to read everything you need to know to be in the running for the title of «Best Slot Car Tuner in Canada». Chris, from British Columbia, earned this distinction in 2015. It's now your turn to aim for the title in 2016. Registration is currently open but there's a limit of 32 participants so don't procrastinate.

In 2015, a total of almost $700 in prizes were awarded to the winners and other participants.

Tuning Secret: Adjusting The Front End


Most racers spend a lot of time tuning the rear end of their car, to make sure everything runs smoothly. Of course, it's very important to have great adjustments, no interference and round/true tires/wheels in the back. But the front end is also equally important and can make a difference between a middle-of-the-field car and a winning car.

You will find a great article about those adjustments on our website. It was written last year but at the start of a new racing season for many of you, understanding those concepts can make you a better racer and a better car tuner.

 

  Useful Information for Tuning the Front End of a Car

Hudy Tools - For Those Who Want Only The Best

During the summer months, we got a shipment of Hudy tools and we have plently of inventory for you. The Hudy Tire Truer has always been recognized as one of the best on the market and the best «tire masters» on the continent are using it on a daily basis to win races. Mine is still running strong after years of use (and abuse!).

Also, if you're looking for pinion tools (press and pull), look no further. They're not cheap but they will last you a lifetime and are small enough to fit in any slot box (even your shirt pocket!), unlike other pinion tools that take up the space of a slot car. Again, I've been using mine for many years and they are still perfectly aligned and do a superb job.

Investing in good tools for your favorite hobby is always a good idea. With Hudy, you won't be disappointed.

New Tire Sizes From Paul Gage

15x8mm wheels are used by a lot of manufacturers in the 1/32 slot car world. CB Design, Slot.it, MR Slotcar, etc. are all making 15x8mm wheels. We've had some new Paul Gage tires for them for a while now. The 19105LM is a lower profile tire for the 15x8mm wheel and the 24105LM model will be perfect when you want some more tire on your wheel. If you'd like a wider tire on the same wheel, you can also choose the 19125LM tire. Same wheel, completely different results, just by changing the tires.

They're all available now, along with all other models. Thanks to Harry Wise (from Home Racing World) for the pictures.

  

A New CA Glue For Your Tires

In addition to all the CA glues we already had in stock for different applications, we have recently received a new shipment of CA glue to restock our shelves. If you were used to the IC-2000 black glue for your tires and prefer using a clear product, you can now have the same properties in a clear glue, called ULTRA-CURE. They're all available and ready to ship.

Click on the chart below for more details. You will also be able to download a bigger PDF version for printing purposes.

A Winning Combination

Recently, we released two new sizes for our F1-Style CB Design wheels, 15x10mm and 15x11mm. But Harry, from Home Racing World, does not race F1 cars too often so he used them for a whole different car. He combined the new wheels with the fat 22168FF tires from Paul Gage and the result is perfect for a mean looking all-American race car. You could of course use the same combination to reproduce the rear wheels from the F1 era when everything was possible and everything was tested. Let your imagination run wild and the results could be surprising!

Thanks again to Harry Wise (from
Home Racing World) for the pictures.

 


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.

Back In Stock - Roller Test Bench


This Roller Test Bench is hand-made right here in Québec by a friend. It features a precision aluminium roller to test your car. The first batch sold out very fast and a lot of customers asked for more. We now have more in stock and they're ready to ship.

The adjustable stopper allows the use of cars of different lengths. The copper braid used on the test bench is high-quality track braid from Slot Car Corner. Banana plugs and wires are included. Power supply and cars not included.

This tool is perfect to make sure your car is perfectly balanced and tuned before you put it on the track. It's also great for checking the roundness of your wheels/tires and for running in motors and gears. I've been using one for a few years now and it's a very useful tool to have around the track.

Please understand those are hand-made, making each unit unique and a little different from all others. My friend Jean-Pierre, the builder of those test benches, is a machinist by trade and works very meticulously but small cosmetic defects can be found on some units. I currently have 4 units in stock.
