Loyalty Rewards

At Slot Car Corner Canada, customer satisfaction and great service are always our priority. And that's probably why we have so many loyal customers, who continue to make their slot car purchases here on a regular basis. We're proud to be able to call many of them friends, and those great relationships are part of the fun of this wonderful hobby.

To reward this loyalty, we're happy to give those repeat customers a little something extra, a simple gift to thank them for being a big part of the Slot Car Corner Canada family. Every customer who has purchased for more than $1000 in the last six months will receive a
$30 credit, applicable to any future purchase. For customers who have purchased between $500 and $1000 in the same period, a $15 credit will be given. This credit will be automatically put in your account and you'll be able to use it for your next order.

Almost 30 customers will benefit from those rewards (those customers will receive an email shortly). We hope you'll put this credit to good use. We have some wonderful cars and other products in stock for you to enjoy.



The Matra MS670B is finally here

This is probably the most awaited car from Slot.it in a long time. And it will finally be in stock before the end of the month (it's in transit as you read those words). Fortunately, we'll have enough stock to cover all pre-orders and there will be enough left for any last-minute decisions out there.

The Matra-Simca MS670 was a Prototype race car that won the Le Mans 24 Hours 3 times in a row (from 1972 to 1974) as well as the World Manufacturers Championship twice (1973 and 1974). The car was designed by Bernard Boyer and Jean-Louis Caussin. The long tail version, designed in '74 for Le Mans, was still called '670B', 'B' being the distinctive letter of all Matras that were fitted with the Porsche 5-speed gearbox.

The chassis was an aluminium monocoque, with fiberglass body.
The engine was a 3-litres V12 at 60°, with aluminium block and head; bore was 79.7 mm and stroke 50.0 mm. Its sound was extremely loud.



You can now get a piece of Le Mans history in your own home. And judging by its looks and shape, this Matra could well be the fastest Slot.it you can find. Order here.
 

The Michigan 24 - Another World Record ?

In less than two weeks, our good friends at Clover Leaf Racing will host the Michigan 24 for the fourth 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 three events (even breaking the world record on the first and third attempt, a record that still holds to this day at 269.46 miles) and we're going back in 2014 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 fourth consecutive year.

The cars you can see in the picture above are ready for action. During practice on Friday, we'll choose which one will be the candidate for another world record. Team Slot Car Corner has the following drivers: Steve Sawtelle (CT), Dickie Pearson (NH), Mike Chiocchio (CT), Georges Hamel (QC) and Christian Gingras (QC).

We know the competition will be ready to challenge us again, more than ever, 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, have been the tire of choice for all teams since the beginning. No other tires have even come close to their performance for this race.



Release Schedule - Racer Sideways Group 5

Racer will be coming out with more Group 5 cars in 2014, growing this already very popular series of cars in its Sideways line. The following is the release schedule we were given for the current year:

March: SW27 BMW M1 Sauber Le Mans
April: SW24 Porsche Momo
May: SW30 512BB Yellow Le Mans
June: SW29 Ford Capri Jagermeister
July: SW31 BMW M1 Sauber BASF Le Mans
September: SW26 Lancia Blue/White Le Mans
October: SWxx Porsche Kremer K2
November: SWxx Porsche 935/77a

Of course, it's very possible that changes could be made to this schedule but that gives us a good idea of what to expect in the next few months. Of course, we'll have all these cars in stock when they're released. Stay tuned.

 

Super Tires Clearance

As Super Tires are upgraded to include rounded outer sidewalls, we still have limited quantities of "Classic" (silicone) and "Yellow Dog" (urethane) Super Tires with the original "square" sidewalls at reduced prices. If you like to profile your own tires or just like a good bargain, don't procrastinate because once they're gone, they're gone. See what we have in stock here.
 
 
New Cars in Stock    

Here's a list of some of the new cars we got (or will get very soon) since the last newsletter was sent out. We got a lot of new cars from FlySlot and most missing Racer Sideways cars have been restocked lately.

Track Building Supplies

As we are putting the finishing touches to our brand new track, we just wanted to remind you that we, at Slot Car Corner Canada, have a lot of items available for your new track in the making. Our braiding products are very popular (braid, double-sided tape, braid roller, router bits, etc.) and will make the job easier.

We also have what it takes for you to fabricate your driver stations: connectors, blank panels, switches, relays, buttons and our famous controller holders. Speaking of those, we have made some revisions to their design and they're now even more practical with controllers that have a lighter handle, with a new V-shaped opening.

Increasing Rates at Canada Post

You know that Canada Post has announced increased rates for First Class mail after March 31st (among other major changes). We still don't know how this will affect rates for packages. Please understand that if the rates for packages go up significantly, we'll have to make revisions to our own shipping rates. If we have to do this, rest assured that they'll still be lower than the actual shipping cost. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
 

Made in Canada

We're located in Canada and we should be proud that many of the products that are sold on our website are made and/or designed in Canada. Slot Car Corner Canada has even been instrumental in a lot of those products. To make them more visible, we now have a special section if you want to show your support for Canadian slot racing products.
 
Join us on Facebook  

If you have a Facebook account (who doesn't?!) and you have not joined our page yet, you should do so right away. You'll get all the news as they happen. New cars, new items in stock, store news, special promotions, etc. Why wait for the newsletter every month when you can get the information as it comes out?


Do you have SCC candy in your slot car box ?

The SCC Candy is now a well-known addition to all our orders and we've seen some racers keeping some bags in storage for big race nights. By swallowing the recommended dosage before the start, you'll build the momentum needed to win the race, even against the fastest racers in your club. Try it, you'll be amazed at how it can work to your advantage!

If you have ordered from Slot Car Corner Canada before, you know our priority is to provide great service to all our customers. We like to think every one of them is a friend and we do everything we can to make sure you become one. And we'll start by serving your slot racing needs to the best of our knowledge and ability. We like to read your comments and that's why we invite you to join us on Facebook. Don't wait for the newsletter, get the news as they come in!

Slot car racing is a great social hobby! Hang out with friends, have fun and smile. And if you visit our beautiful Québec City, don't hesitate to drop me a note, we might be able to share a cold one around a track and make even more friends. In the meantime, just have fun!

Christian, Slot Car Corner Canada
