Easter Holiday
Please note that I'll be out of town with family and friends for the Easter Holiday. All orders placed between Wednesday April 12th and Monday April 17th will be processed and shipped on Tuesday April 18th.
Take some time to enjoy the company of family and friends during this holiday, this is exactly what I'll be doing.

Order $50 Or More - Get $5 Off Shipping




The shipping cost for packages in Canada is high and the Canada Post postal rate structure is not always logical, there's no denying those facts. Unfortunately, this is a reality we all have to live with, Slot Car Corner Canada being no exception. On the positive side, Canada Post has always given me great service, their loss/damage ratio is very low and their extensive network of post offices and community boxes make retrieving your packages very easy if you're not home at the time of delivery.

But the cost is still high and I want to help and give you a little break on shipping costs. This is why I'm offering you a $5 discount on shipping for all orders of $50 or more*. You could use this rebate to order one more pair of tires or to get faster shipping with Xpresspost instead of Expedited Parcel. Your choice!

Just use the SHIP5 coupon code at checkout to get that rebate. Unfortunately, there's no way for me to make it happen automatically, you'll have to use the coupon code. Start saving now!

* Valid until May 31st, only for packages shipped to Canada.

New SCC Motors - Affordable Pricing



Slot Car Corner Canada
has just introduced three (3) new motors for 1/32-scale slot car racing enthusiasts, to complement the already released (and very popular) Piranha 21.5 and Minnow 18 motors in the SCC slot car motor family (or «aquarium»!). By dealing direct with the motor manufacturers, we're able to offer them to our customers at very attractive prices. Harry Wise of Home Racing World has recently posted a review of those motors, including speed and torque ratings for each of them. Please take a couple of minutes to read the review and learn more about each motor.

First, you will find a replacement motor for most Scalextric and Carrera cars. The Gator 18K short-can motor, with a splined motor shaft that can use plastic or brass pinions, is the perfect way to replace a broken or slow motor in most cars. $11

Second, you will find the Tuna 16K, also a short-can motor, with less speed for those short tracks or classic cars that need less power to look realistic. The Tuna has a dual motor shaft so it can be used in a variety of configurations. $11

And finally, the Jaws 17.5K long-can motor, with a 7.5mm motor shaft, is the perfect motor for those Sideways Group 5 that are sometimes too fast out-of-the-box. With a smoother, milder motor, those cars can now be controlled more easily on smaller or more technical tracks. $13

With all those motors in the SCC family, you're sure to find something that will suit you and your needs.

Team Slot Car Corner Wins the 7th Annual Michigan 24

The 7th Annual Michigan 24 Hour Endurance race was held last weekend, on April 1-2, 2017 in Fenton MI. Team Slot Car Corner has already won 5 of the 6 races so far, breaking the world record 3 times during that period. And again in 2017, after another grueling race (those things are tough, there's no denying it!), the yellow and black shirts have put their name on the Ken Brown Memorial trophy for a sixth time in seven years.


Rear: Kurt Moser (KY), Mike Chiocchi (CT), Georges Hamel (QC)
Front: Christian Gingras (QC), Steve Sawtelle (CT)


Using a NSR Mosler as the weapon of choice, equipped with Quick Slicks silicone tires and full of high-performance Slot Car Corner parts, Team Slot Car Corner was able to bring the car home without any major mechanical problems. We only had a lead wire come out of the eyelet once. After a quick repair costing us only about 20 or 25 laps, the fantastic car prepared by Mike Chiocchio remained as fast as it was as the start of the race. With great driving from all of the team members, even during the night portion of the race, no other team could come close to our lap total after 24 hours.

Team Slot Car Corner wants to thank everyone involved in hosting such an event. Mike Stott and its Clover Leaf Racing crew are doing a tremendous job year after year by hosting and feeding us all throughout this long weekend of racing. A LOT of preparation goes into an endurance like this and it shows. Fun is all around the track and we look forward to go defend our title each and every year.

The «Slot Racers Giving Back» charity fundraiser has been a big part of this event for the last few years. For the 2017 race, we raised over $2,600 in donations. Each team will donate its share of this amount to a charity of its choice. Team Slot Car Corner has decided to give its share of $520 to the Multiple Sclerosis Societies, both in Canada and in the US. Thank you for your donations, all the Canadian winners have been contacted about the prizes they won.

To see all pictures of the event, just click on the few photos below. See you in 2018!



CG SlotCars - Guide Post Adapters - NEW !

B-Nova guide adapters were very popular to help anyone who wanted to replace the guide on Scalextric cars with Slot.it or other brand guides for better performance, especially on wood tracks. Unfortunately, Bob Novack stopped making its adapters a little more than a year ago and many of you were looking for an alternative. Search no more.

CG SlotCars has stepped up to the plate and is now making equivalent guide post adapters in three thicknesses (1/32", 1/16" and 3/32"). They're all in stock and ready to ship.

(Sold in packs of 3 adapters of a given size)

CG SlotCars - MicroCarbon Chassis - NEW !

CG Slotcars introduces you to the latest 3D printing technology: micro-chopped carbon infused nylon. With a stiffer and stronger material than any 3D material in slot cars today, this line of competition chassis will flex less than OEM "hard" chassis and are far less brittle. MicroCarbon is the most advanced 3D material available in slot car racing.

Those chassis will accommodate any motor pod with a Slot.it footprint. They include two (2) MicroCarbon guides - one standard size and one larger for wood tracks. The MicroCarbon competition chassis is very stiff and the feeling has been described as "solid".

The Changing Gearz car that ran at the Michigan 24 endurance race was using the NSR Mosler MicroCarbon chassis and the car was fast and easy to drive. It also lasted the entire race without any problems with the chassis.

The first two chassis (NSR Mosler and Slot.it Porsche GT1) are now in transit and should be in stock very soon at Slot Car Corner Canada.

ThunderSlot Parts - Always More


ThunderSlot cars have been very popular, and with reason. The Lola T70's are among the fastest slot cars out of the box on the market right now. And you can make them even faster by replacing some of the original parts (stiffer chassis, different tires, suspension kit, etc.). If you need replacement parts or performance parts from ThunderSlot, we now have a larger inventory to serve you.

The Deluxe Braid Roller Is Back


If you want to build your wooden track, we have all you need. Double-sided tape, quality tinned copper braid, router bits and our exclusive Deluxe Braid Roller. Made right here in Canada, it's a quality tool that will last you a lifetime.

Once you have put the braid in place on your new track, this deluxe braid roller will make sure it stays put for a long time. And it's back in stock!
