The Michigan 24 is Around the (Slot Car!) Corner

In less than two months, our good friends at Clover Leaf Racing will host the Michigan 24 for the third year in a row. As you might have guessed, this is a grueling 24-hour event on a 5-lane track for 1/32 slot cars with plastic chassis. Team Slot Car Corner has won the first two events (even breaking the world record the first time) and we're going back in 2013 with the same goals in mind: have a lot of fun driving a slot car for 24 hours in a row, meet new and old friends and write our name on the trophy for a third consecutive year.

We know the competition will be ready to challenge us and it will be tough to stop them but we'll be giving it our all. As you can imagine, most cars will be full of SCC high-performance tuning parts, including our own, of course. Classic Super Tires, while not mandated, have been the tire of choice for all teams since the beginning.

New Sizes for the 5-Spoke Racing wheels

We've just added to the ever growing CB Design wheel lineup two new sizes for the 5-Spoke Racing Wheels. If you need high-performance lightweight wheels without sacrificing robustness and good looks on your LMP or modern GT car, the new 17x8 and 17x11mm 5-Spoke Racing wheels are for you. Being significantly lighter than the regular 5-Spoke wheels, they will give you the edge you need on the track. Of course, the smaller sizes are still available (15x8, 15x11 and 15x12mm).

NEW - Tire Selector Tutorial

Our exclusive Tire Selector is a very useful tool if you're looking for the right Super Tires for a given car or wheel. With over 70 different models of Super Tires (available in silicone and urethane) and several hundreds different cars out there, the Tire Selector will save you a lot of time. For those who haven't discovered yet this wonderful tool we've developed, we invite you to use the tutorial we've prepared. It will guide you step by step and explain what you're seeing when using the Tire Selector.

DID YOU KNOW...

Every slot car racer knows the importance of the rear axle (wheels, tires, bushings, axle, etc.) to get the most performance from a car. But did you know that the front axle setup is also very important to add to the stability of the car on the track.

To achieve that, be sure to check out our Slot Car Corner Adjustable Front Axle Mounts. These adjustable front axle mounts provide an easy, precise way to adjust your front axle height to improve any car's handling. Two special oval point set screws, one directly above and one directly below the axle, provide an easy way to set the axle/wheel height precisely where you want it.
Slot.It Parts - A Growing Inventory

Thanks to you, we've become the largest retail outlet for Slot.It products in Canada in less than a year. Our inventory of Slot.It parts is growing every month and we'll continue to stock more and more of the parts you want and need (in quantity and variety).

Gears, motor mounts, chassis, lighting kits, axle kits, conversion kits, HRS parts, tools, wheel inserts, etc. are in stock waiting for you. Despite the fees associated with importing products from the US distributor, we've kept the pricing at par with the US retail pricing. Why order in the US when you can get your products right here north of the border?

2013 Cars from Slot.It


We've added to our online store all the cars that were pre-announced by Slot.It for 2013. Some of those will be limited editions and others are sure to be very popular (the CanAm McLaren M8D is a perfect example). If you want to make sure you get one before they run out, you can pre-order them right away. Of course, the release dates are not confirmed and it could well be a full year before some of those cars are released.

In order to simplify things for everyone, please place a separate order for your pre-ordered cars and choose Pickup as the payment method. This way, you won't have to pay for them up front and we'll contact you when the cars become available for shipping.

 



Slot Car Corner Canada is all about having the most fun while participating in this wonderful hobby of ours. Clubs can add a lot to your fun and real friendships become a part of the hobby, often more than the racing is. Why not meet some of those clubs that race across our great country? Until you send us your story, let's start with the gang from Montréal.


Montréal Racing Club

From a small core group 6 or 7 years ago, the Montréal Racing Club (MRC) has grown to around 15 members and some of the original racers in the MRC recently started another group on the south shore of the St-Lawrence River. They meet every week and the rotation is done in such a way that a maximum of 8 drivers are driving each week to maximize track time for everyone. Races are sprint races (10 laps), IROC-style, (almost) crash'n'burn. 10 different series of cars are raced each week, supplied by the host and/or the racers. Points are awarded for positions after each sprint race. The club runs on five circuits, each one of them having 3 or 4 lanes.
 
Aside from the regular IROC weekly race nights, some members also participate in a Tuning series, where each participant races his own cars. There are also regular provincial races, where racers from Montréal, Trois-Rivières, Québec City, etc. meet on different tracks just for the fun of it (sometimes, even our American friends from the Northeast join us). The format for those races varies from race to race, depending on the host and the cars used. Québec club racers usually prefer to run IROC races; to put the emphasis on the driving more than on the tuning.

French-speaking slot racers from all over the world are welcome to join the fun at the Select Racing Club Forum. And if you don't understand French, there's always Google Translate to help you!
