2019 Update on SCI Server move and New Hosting Company.

Published: October 13, 2019

Updated November 19th 2019.

Please read article for latest news, we are slowly getting the new Server configured.

Progress on our move to a new Server. We are finally getting moved from our old hosting Company. This process is taking a lot longer than we expected due in part to the amount of data to be moved. We hope to be live and operating again later this week.

We will then start to rebuild features that has made SCI a place to go to to find out about Slot Car Racing. As always our focus will be the North American market as we are based here and in the changing world of retail we are aiming to become the main source for sales on the Brands we Import, Distribute and Manufacture.

Cheap Trees for Your Slot Car Track

How to cheaply make trees for your slot car trackBefore we get started, if your reading this thinking you are going to learn how to make very detailed, realistic trees, this is not one of those articles. Our Model Railroad brethren have already done this for us, and have done it quite well. There are literally hundreds of articles covering the creation of all different types of trees, from simple shrubs to mighty oaks. These trees are not just scenery; some of these are works of art. With that said, it posed the question to me: "Will they work for a scale model raceway as well?"

Ninco Audi TT Upgrade

ninco Audi TT Upgrade With Ninco's release of this car, the first thing that strikes your eye is its looks. Although not as detailed as Scalextric or Fly, is a very nice model, built for running and racing. Another thing is the NC-2 motor, which are more than enough horses for this little DTM addition.

With that said, as you may know, Ninco cars are not as stuck down as other cars might be, and not that this trait is bad, you might want to add just a bit of down-force in the rear for added speed in the corners. On Carrera track, this is more evident, as the rails are less magnetic than on Scalextric or Ninco, so I chose to help this model just a bit.

Callaway C12 Corvette

Callaway In 1986, Reeves Callaway took a stock Corvette and created what came to be known as the Callaway Twin Turbo. In 1988, it was known as the Sledgehammer, a Viper killer. Available at select dealerships, only the well off could afford this performance option, and the cars are highly collectible. In 1992, the twin turbo option went away, but in 1999, a new breed of snake killers emerged. Enter, the Callaway C12.

Classic Fly Tuning

Classic Fly Tuning lola t70  ferrari 512s Two cars that seem to stand out for me are the Ferrari 512S Berlinetta and the Lola T70 MkIIIB Coupe from Fly Car Model. These cars have been out for quite some time, yet, I feel some modelers would enjoy these classics. They are fun to drive, have outstanding detail, and are quite competitive.

The performance of these cars are pretty similar, with the Lola having a bit more tail out action, being longer of the 2, and the added rear spare tire adds weight here as well. Still this car feels more stuck down than the Ferrari and they are very close.

Building Slot Car Shelves

how to Build Slot Car Shelves Being a slot car enthusiast as well as Harry, I found myself faced with the dilemma of where and how to display all the cars that we keep buying to add to our stable. I looked at many display cases and I have to say I didn't want to spend that much money so I decided to build my own.

Ninco Karting Race Set

karting36 years on and cool is back with the Ninco Go-Kart set. I bought this for my sons 17th birthday and at $210.00 Australian dollars it is well worth the price. [Editor's Note: this set is available in the U.S. at about $140 U.S.] The track is an extended oval that will fit nicely on a 4 x 8 foot sheet of plywood. The running length of the track is a bit over 15 feet. Now, while this is a comfortable set, the small size really never lets these cars get up to speed, and I tell you they are quick!

Shelby Cobra

Cobra When it comes to modern out-of-the-box slot cars, it's hard to find some good-old American muscle. Though this is soon to change with Carrera and Scalextric both announcing some great new releases of classic muscle cars, until now the closest thing to a muscle car you could get was the Cobras. Both Ninco (as seen here) and MRRC produce some fine Cobras.
