Bring the Cup back in Canada !

This year, only one Canadian team was able to get into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and they're still in the fight for the Cup, thanks to an exciting win against the Boston Bruins, the best team in the league this season. The Montréal Canadiens have won the prestigious trophy 24 times so far but it's been more than 20 years since their last parade on Ste-Catherine Street in Montréal. In fact, the 1993 win by the Canadiens was the last time the Cup was grabbed by a Canadian team.

Here at Slot Car Corner Canada, we wish to see all Canadians stand behind our only chance to bring back the Stanley Cup where it belongs, right here north of the border. Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and even hopeful Québec City hockey fans (aren't we all?!) should all cheer for the Canadiens against the New York Rangers on their quest for the Stanley Cup. Go Habs Go !



A New Porsche 911 GT1 EVO98 from Slot.It

Slot.it just released their latest car in their modern GT series, with the wonderful Porsche 911 GT1 EVO98 that ran in Donington Park in 1998, with a stunning green, red and white livery. Including the latest EVO6 chassis and all the recent mechanical refinements from Slot.it, this car is considered by many to be a worthy contender for the title of the fastest 1/32 slot car on the market. It sure looks like it !

The 911 GT1 EVO 98 was designed by Porsche to compete in the GT1 category in 1998, at the Le Mans 24 Hours and in the FIA GT International Championship. In the beginning, the GT1 class was based on GT (Grand Touring) cars prepared for racing, but eventually they became racing prototypes. The '98 car was a brand new model from Porsche.

This was the first car built by Porsche with a carbon composite monocoque chassis. It came with front and rear double wishbone suspensions with pushrod, 18” wheels, carbon brake discs. Engine was a six-cylinder, flat, 3.2 litres twin turbo, 4 valves per cylinder, water-cooled, unit, with maximum torque of 630 Nm at 5000 rpm and maximum power of 550 hp at 7200 rpm. Gearbox was six-speed sequential with triple disc carbon fibre clutch. Fuel tank capacity was 100 litres.

In 1998, the FIA GT championship was dominated by Mercedes, but Porsche was able to win the Le Mans 24 Hours. Hahne and Scheld ran car #5 In the FIA GT race at Donington Park, UK.

Simplifying Things (A Lot!) for Shipping Costs
 
Trying to choose a shipping method among the choices that were offered to you was not simple enough, if your many emails asking for more information were any indication. Trying to determine if the «Small Items» shipping option was possible for a given order was not an exact science and that too often delayed the shipping of your orders by 24 hours, not mentioning the emails that went back and forth. $3, $8, $12, free shipping, real cost, etc. Too many options, too many choices. And Canada Post is not making things easier with the shipping rates they have for us.
 
That's why we decided to simplify things for all orders within Canada, whatever the weight, the destination or the thickness. You won't have to ask yourself any question when ordering. Shipping will be $5, always*. Since most orders we got were using the $8 shipping option, this will be a savings for many customers. For international customers, there's no change, you'll always be asked to pay the actual shipping cost.

* Only exception will be Purolator shipping for provinces outside of Ontario and Québec ($15).
