The «Slot Racers Giving Back» charity fundraising is back. In addition to winning great prizes worth thousands of dollars, your contribution will help people in their time of need.

This year, Slot Car Corner Canada and Slot Car Corner have decided to give 100% of your contributions to the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Most of us have people in our entourage who have to fight this condition on a daily basis. Getting more funding for research is key to finding a way to a better life for those people.

SCCC Points Rewards - Did You Redeem Yours ?

Since the «SCCC Points Rewards» program has been created, Slot Car Corner Canada customers have earned over 40,000 SCCC Points and many have been able to get nice discounts on their most recent purchases.

Right now, more than 35 customers could get a discount on their next purchase if they used the SCCC Points they have in their account. Why don't you take advantage of this to get yourself a great new slot car while saving some money?!

25% Discount on All MR Slotcar Products



To get all the performance out of your MR Slotcar cars or any other brand of car using standard mechanical components, MR Slotcar parts are often overlooked but are quality parts that could give you an edge on performance.

In order to help you discover those unknown parts, all in-stock MR Slotcar products are reduced by 25% until the end of March. Start exploring the MR Slotcar section on the website and start filling your shopping cart. If you haven't tried the suspension kit on your F1 McLaren GTR or a harder chassis for your Mazda 787B, now would be a perfect time to try it out.

Canada Post for All Orders

In the last newsletter, I had announced that Purolator would be replaced by Dicom for express shipping starting March 1st, 2017. This change was made because my full-time employer has signed a new exclusive contract with Dicom Express and Purolator could not be used anymore.



Unfortunately, when March 1st arrived and I started shipping some orders with Dicom Express, several major shortcomings of the new contract became evident, especially for provinces outside the Ontario-Québec zone. And even in the two central provinces, service to residential addresses and more rural areas has too many shortcomings and costly conditions.

In this context, it's impossible for me to continue offering express shipping with Dicom Express and this service had to be removed from the shipping options. Fortunately, if you need a fast delivery, Canada Post is offering its Xpresspost service to every home in Canada and post offices are everywhere, for you to get your package if you're not home at the time of delivery. For regular shipping, Expedited Parcel is still your best option (2-3 days to Québec and Ontario, about a week or a bit more for Western provinces).

Some people have bad things to say about Canada Post but they've always given me great service, their loss/damage ratio is very very low (way less than 1%) and their extensive network of post offices and community boxes make retrieving your packages very easy.
 


Don't forget that you can use your SCCC Points to get free shipping.

Tire Tubes Are Back !

A few weeks ago, I received a new supply of tire tubes, and they can now hold up to 6 standard-size tires (1" diameter). They're perfect for storing those wheels and tires until your next race. Of course, you can also use them to store screws, spacers, braid, axle stops and any other small parts you're carrying in your slot box. I use them all the time and they'll be useful to you too.

Cheap and useful, what's not to like?!

(Sold in packs of 10 tire tubes... that a total of 60 tires and/or wheels!)

A Pirelli Pit Girl - Waiting for You

Racer Sideways has released many nice figurines in the last few years. Their most recent series of pit girls with umbrellas are very nice and many sponsors have been featured so far (Hawaiian Tropic, John Player Special, Valvoline, Playboy, etc.).

The last version in the series is a Pirelli Pit Girl, perfect for those F1-themed tracks or any other theme with which the Pirelli's yellow and black scheme works well (we love yellow and black!).

It's in stock now so don't wait until it's too late.

7th Annual Michigan 24-Hour Endurance Race

The 7th Annual Michigan 24 Hour Endurance race is just around the corner – this year’s race will be held from March 31st to April 2nd, 2017. And you know that the Slot Car Corner racing team is always there, having fun with friends, trying to win the race, trying to beat the world record (again!), and testing our own products in real-life racing conditions.



In addition to the world-class racing, a hallmark of this event is the «Slot Racers Giving Back» fundraising for charity. You can purchase tickets online and ticket numbers will be updated and posted regularly throughout the course of the event. Tickets are US$1 each.

A complete list of prizes from charity sponsors is also published and updated regularly on the Home Racing World forum. The total value of the prizes will be several thousand dollars. We’ve already started lining up sponsors and prizes – there are a lot of GREAT prizes! A partial list of sponsors includes:


If you are interested in donating a prize for the raffle, please let us know.

The deadline to purchase tickets online will be Sunday, April 2nd at 10AM ET. A final list of contributors and tickets will then be published.

In the past, a traditional drawing was held at the end of the event – the drawing was time-consuming and required considerable effort to keep track of winners and their prizes. Last year, prize winners were determined electronically (randomly) and the results were posted during the afternoon on Sunday. We'll do the same this year.

As in previous years, 100% of the charity raffle proceeds will be donated to actual charities. The total raffle proceeds will be split equally 5 ways – each of the 5 teams participating in this year’s event will then donate their share to a charity of their choice. Team Slot Car Corner has decided to support the Multiple Sclerosis Society this year, to make sure research continues to help those people who have to live with this situation.

You can now buy your raffle tickets from Slot Car Corner Canada right here. Please consider making a donation - $1, $5, $10 or whatever you can afford would be GREATLY appreciated!

Ken (from Manitoba) Gets an Audi R18 e-tron quattro


As it was the case in January, Slot Car Corner Canada has awarded a wonderful Slot.It Special Limited Edition Audi R18 e-tron to the customer who has spent the most money in February.

(For privacy reasons, I'm not publishing the full names of involved customers. They will recognize themselves.)

If you remember, Bob won the car in January by a very thin margin of $26 over Ken. Once again in February, Ken was just behind Bob at the end of the month. In this context, Bob has very generously offered to give the car to Ken.

Thank you both for being great customers!

The Ultimate Checklist - Better Tuning for Your Cars

A year ago, we have created The Ultimate Checklist for tuning a slot car. Many new customers and enthusiasts have since discovered the joys of slot car racing and tuning. This is why the list is introduced again.

Building, preparing and tuning a slot car for a race is a fun part of the hobby. Some people just like to add some lubrication and change their tires before going to a race. Others want their car to be the best it can be.

If you go through this list every time you’re preparing a car for a local club race or a long proxy race, we can’t promise you’ll win every race but you’ll certainly have one of the best handling cars on the track.
