The April newsletter is coming in late and is a short one. The Michigan 24 race just took a good portion of my available time this month. The next newsletter will look more like the regular programming.

Quick Slicks Silicone Tires

For a few weeks in March, we were out of the most popular Quick Slicks tires: CB34 and CB58 for 15x8 and 17x10 tires. They're now back in stock so make sure you get the fastest silicone tires for your fastest cars. They're ready to ship.

Quick Slicks tires have been used by all teams at the recent Michigan 24 race. If the racers and car builders at this prestigious 24-hour race have chosen Quick Slicks tires for this race, it means that they're the best option out there for slot car tires. On a clean track, you won't find faster tires than Quick Slicks. Race-proven, made by racers for racers.

Slot Racers Giving Back !

The 6th Annual Michigan 24 Hour Endurance race was held from April 15-17, 2016 (see story below for more details). For the third year in a row, the race was also the opportunity to give back to people in need. As racers having fun and enjoying a wonderful hobby with friends at the Michigan 24, we wanted to make a difference in the life of others that are not so lucky. 



In addition to the world-class racing, the «Slot Racers Giving Back» is a fantastic charity fundraising. Slot Car Corner Canada gave away more than $1000 in prizes and cash (Slot Car Corner Canada has taken care of the exchange rate for all its Canadian customers, when purchasing their raffle tickets).

As in previous years, 100% of the charity raffle proceeds have been donated to actual charities. The total raffle proceeds have been split equally 6 ways – each of the 6 teams participating in this year’s event has donated their share to a charity of their choice.

The total value of the prizes awarded was over $3200! We sold more than 3400 tickets, meaning that «Slot Racers Giving Back» gave more than $3400 to six different charities in North America. The list of sponsors includes:

Many Slot Car Corner Canada bought raffle tickets and I want to thank you for your contribution. Some of you have won some prizes, other didn't. In the end, everyone's a winner because every donated dollar will make a difference in the life of someone. And that's GREATLY appreciated!

Michigan 24 - Team Slot Car Corner Wins !

The 6th Annual Michigan 24 Hour Endurance race was held from April 15-17, 2016. And you know that the Slot Car Corner racing team is always there, having fun with friends, trying to win the race and testing our own products in real-life racing conditions.



We are proud to say the Team Slot Car Corner has won the event for the 5th time in 6 years, using a NSR Mosler equipped with Quick Slicks tires, CB Design wheels and Slot Car Corner tuning parts everywhere, including our race-winning car braid. Our victory was decided at the very end of this nail-biting race as only 22 laps separated us from Team Quick Slicks in 2nd place, after having driven the same car around the track for a total of more than 11,500 laps. That means that about 150 seconds separated the two cars at the end of this race, probably one of the closest ever finish seen in a 24-hour slot car race.



Thank you to Mike Stott and the entire Clover Leaf crew for hosting the race again this year. This weekend is always a fun-filled experience, despite the rigours of extreme endurance racing like a 24-hour race. It's difficult for the drivers but also very difficult on the cars. But we always want to do it again and the friendships are what keep us coming back every year.

You will find some pictures of the race on our Facebook page but also on Flickr for the complete album. Also, the complete data from the race (lap by lap, heat by heat, for every team), is also available in an Excel file on Home Racing World.



SCC Canada Proxy Race - Rounds 7 & 8 - Alberta



Things continue to move fast in the SCC Canada Proxy 2016 and the two rounds in Alberta are now done.

Round 7 was hosted by the guys in Edmonton. Their GETCARS club is probably the most active in the country right now and they did a wonderful job hosting this round of the proxy race. Benoit Harvey (QC - #69) has won another round with its rocket, just ahead of his closest competitor and local racer Ron Todhunter (AB - #13). Bob Chapman (ON - #23) completed the podium in Edmonton.

Round 8 took place in Calgary AB at Racers Haven Speedway and Tom Magliocco took charge of the organization of this round on this fantastic 4-lane layout. Benoit won again and was accompanied by a fellow Québécois on the podium with 3rd place Pascal Thibault (QC - #58). Between the two, another racer from Eastern Canada took 2nd place, as John C. Bassett's (ON - #25) car was effective on this particular layout.



What's interesting is that we have 5 different provinces represented in the Top 7, with BC occupying three of those slots. Now with 2 other rounds to go in British Columbia, this race is still very interesting. Stay tuned!

For the complete results and more information, see the Canada Slot Car forum.

Guide Spacers - An Important Part of Tuning

Guide spacers are one of those "little things" that are often overlooked but can make a big difference in the performance of your car. Guide spacers are useful when trying to set the height of the guide and/or to eliminate unwanted "slop" between the guide post and chassis. Ours are .010" or .025" thick and can be stacked to achieve the desired thickness for a given guide/car. Made from Teflon which doesn't require lubrication and has a lower coefficient of friction than spacers made from metal. Designed to fit most popular guides. Sold in packages of ten (10).

Hawaiian Tropic Girls - Helena, Inna & Jane


They're on the shelves at Slot Car Corner Canada right now and are ready to make the trip to your track.

Helena, Inna and Jane are the latest pit girls to join the Racer Sideways collection. Those Hawaiian Tropic girls will be a lively addition to your pit lane.

Super Tires - CRAZY Pricing for Bulk Purchases !

You already know that I'm not restocking Super Tires, because Quick Slicks silicone tires and Paul Gage urethane tires can produce similar or better results for much less money.

This is why you have been able to buy Super Tires at clearance prices all summer long ($5/pair instead of the MSRP of over $10/pair). Over 500 pairs found a new home this way and I now need to get rid of the almost 1300 pairs left in inventory.

You'll be able to get reduced pricing if you buy large quantities of Super Tires in bulk*.

If you buy over 60 pairs, pricing will go down to $4/pair.
If you buy over 120 pairs, pricing will go down to $3/pair.


Of course, that's WAY lower than the cost for those tires. Dealer purchases are welcome, of course. This clearance pricing is valid on available inventory only. First come, first serve. Get your club members together and grab those tires before they're all gone.

* Tires won't be packaged individually. Each size will be put into a small resealable bag with the model number written on the bag.
