Slot Car Corner Canada has given a great Christmas gift to one lucky customer.

The winner of the Christmas gift from Slot Car Corner Canada is Christian Mayer, from Montréal QC. Christian had picked 39 as his entry into the draw and the Bonus number from the December 31st Lotto 6/49 was 40. Alwyn Slabbert, from Vancouver BC had also chosen 39 but Christian's order came in first so he's the winner of the FlySlot Gulf truck. Congratulations!

 

New McLaren M8D from Slot.It

The winning Can-Am #5 McLaren M8D from Watkins Glen 1970, driven by Denny Hulme, is now ready to ship. This car uses the new V12/4 (SIMX16) motor from Slot.It in a sidewinder configuration. All other McLaren M8D's are very fun little cars to drive around the track. This one is no exception. Get yourself a nice gift to start the new year on a fun note!

Sad News from British Columbia

Last week, I learned that Keith Hines (also known as RetroRacer44), a good SCCC customer, a really good car builder and very enthusiastic slot car racer, has passed away during a heart surgery procedure. Keith was racing with the guys in the Vancouver area and some of its great proxy cars are currently on the road in different proxy races.

He will be missed by many friends, not just in BC but all over the continent, by fellow racers that had the chance of meeting him or receiving some good advice on various online forums or by email.

RIP Keith.

We'll all be having fun around our tracks in your memory.

SCC Tire Gluing Tool - A Solution To A Real Problem

Let’s face it – gluing slot car tires is a tedious and often messy task. Depending on the method you use, it’s difficult to ensure the adhesive is spread uniformly across the entire surface where the outer surface of the wheel and inner surface of the tire meet. The result is an inconsistent bond that is prone to failure under actual race conditions.



The SCC Tire Gluing Tool takes a different approach to gluing tires. With the SCC Tire Gluing Tool, adhesive is applied uniformly across the entire surface of the wheel. You can easily see and check to coverage to ensure there are no bare spots. The tool is designed to stretch a tire slightly so it can be «dropped» onto the wheel. No more toothpicks or trying to slide the tire across the wheel (and pushing the adhesive off the wheel as you do so).

You get consistent results with better adhesion which yields better performance under race conditions. We're sure it will be really useful for a lot of slot car enthusiasts out there. It sure is to us.

The SCC Tire Gluing Tool is available in two (2) sizes:

  • Small – designed for 14.0mm through 16.0mm wheels (including all popular 15.8mm wheels)
  • Large – designed for 16.0mm through 17.5mm wheels (including all popular 17.3mm wheels)

The SCC Tire Gluing Tool works with wheels with or without a center rib.

We’ve put together a short video that provides an introduction and tutorial. Click on this link to view the video.

ThunderSlot - Suspension Kit

Many racers have discovered that the ThunderSlot Lola T70 MkIII cars are fantastic runners right out of the box. They're really the stars of 2016 if we're talking about new brands on the market.

The SCC Sanding Blocks are back in stock, NEW & IMPROVED !

  • They're now available in extra fine grit (800), in addition to the previously available 100, 240 and 400.



Our Universal Sanding Blocks are an essential tool for achieving maximum performance from your 1/32 slot cars. Sand your tires to ensure they are "true" - perfectly round with a flat contact patch. The sanding blocks can also be used to sand chassis or any other car parts.

You can buy them individually or in a complete set of 4. And they're made right here in Canada.
