Super Tires - 111xR and 210xR Series
Slot Car Corner Canada is proud to announce five (5) additional "R" series 1/32 Super Tires. First, the Super Tires 111xR Series is aimed at 1/32 racers who need to run low profile tires on larger wheels. This new series has been created to fit perfectly on our CB Design LMP and Insert 17x11mm wheels (LMP shown on the car below).
Note the 1111R and 1112R supersede the 1100 and 1100B Super Tires respectively. The 1113R is a new, taller version of these tires based on customer requests. With 3 diameters to choose from, builders/racers have a wide range of setup and tuning options available. Like other "R" series Super Tires, the 111xR series feature a rounded outer sidewall which looks great on a variety of cars.
The Super Tires 111xR series is available now in the "Classic" (silicone) compound and will be available soon in the "Yellow Dog" (urethane) compound in the not-too-distant future. For more information about Super Tires or to order, please go to our online store.
We also have some Super Tires for 15x10mm wheels, the only ones missing from our list. You can now use Super Tires on all CB Design wheels we sell. The 2102R and 2104R tires are a great way to improve the handling of any car.
(Quantities will be limited at first as production will be ramping up in the next few weeks. Those tires have already generated a lot of interest.)
SCOTY Awards for Slot Car Corner
The 2012 SCOTY awards were recently given by Home Racing World to the best manufacturers and shops in the home slot car racing business. And we're extremely proud to announce that Slot Car Corner not only won one, not two but THREE awards this year (best silicone tires, best wheels and best track braiding solution). Thank you to everyone of our customers. You are the ones who make us the best in the business!
Here's what Harry, from HRW, had to say about us:
Classic Super Tires (silicone)
«With the new rounded sidewalls, these tires look better than ever on your scale models. Between that and the nearly indestructible blend, these continue to be the choice for many racers worldwide.»
CB Design Wheels
«Without a doubt, the quality wheels made by C.B. Design are #1. Not only are they made to the
highest standards, but the release of the classic steel wheel really set them apart this past year. This wheel has been needed in our hobby for many years and finally it arrived. Combine this with outstanding customer service and Slot Car Corner gets the checkered flag easily.»
Track Braiding Solution
«We were fortunate to have SCC visit this year and help braid our oval. The new bit and online instructions they have makes it easy for any current wood track owner to convert to braid. We liked it so much we did our road course too!».
Ferrari 250 GTO - Racer Silver Line
The Silver Line series from Racer is a fantastic way to get high-end Racer handmade quality at a relatively affordable price. Featuring fantastic-looking bodies and a Slot.It drivetrain, those Ferraris will become the jewels of your car collection... and you can race them too! We'll (very very soon) have in stock the last two racing versions of the car (#24 and #25), which raced at Le Mans in 1963. They really look stunning! At $20 off the retail price, they're a bargain. Get one before they're all gone.
5-Spoke Racing Wheel - New 15x11mm
We already had 15x8mm and 15x12mm wheels in the 5-Spoke Racing series and competitors and proxy builders are loving them. We've just added a 15x11mm wheel for those races where a 12mm wheel is not allowed or for those cars that do not have the necessary width under their body.
Also, the 2112R rounded-sidewall Super Tires will fit this new wheel for a fast and furious car. The 5-Spoke Racing wheel is a lighter competition wheel that retains a 5-Spoke design so that inserts are not required
Classic Steel Wheel - Now 17x8mm
Looking for a great wheel to get your big classic stock car to run like a champ and look GREAT at the same time? With the new 17x8mm Classic Steel wheel from CB Design, we have what it takes. We've already upgraded some of our own Carrera Superbird's and they have done a lot of fast laps on those shiny new wheels. In stock now!

M/T Racing Resins Motors
If you need slower motors that have a lot of torque and a smooth power delivery, look no further. Slot Car Corner Canada will have the online exclusivity in Canada for M/T Racing Resins Motors. Those motors probably have the greatest quality/price ratio you can find. They come in short can, long can and slim can versions, for all your needs. The slim can version comes with a 1.5mm motor shaft and we'll also sell some stainless steel tubing so you'll be able to use 2mm pinions on those if you prefer.
In classic open-wheel cars or smaller cars of the 60's and 70's, these affordable motors will be perfect. More realistic speeds often means more fun! They're on their way right now to us and we should get them in about a week. You can already pre-order them if you want.
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. The last few months have been very busy at Slot Car Corner Canada and we thank you for it. We're looking forward to 2013 with a big smile and we'll continue to serve your slot racing needs to the best of our knowledge and ability.
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 slot track and make even more friends. In the meantime, just have fun!
