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.

Porsche 917 & Lola T70

Fly Porsche 917k and Lola t70 slot car review In the old days, detail on a slot car meant putting it there yourself. You took plastic model kits and converted them into slot cars, or bought slot car kits from Monogram or Cox and painted and detailed them yourself. In later years detail seemed to fade away completely from the slot car scene, replaced by flat "pancake" lexan bodies that offered less weight, more downforce, and more speed. In the past few years, the hobby has seen a resurgence of cars with great detail. But on top of the great looks, the cars are quite fast. FLY is well known for their highly detailed and above average performing cars.

Scalextric 1:32 Scale Le Mans Slot Car Set

lemans setMy first exposure to slot cars came in the mid '60's when my brother received an Eldon Slot Car Set for Christmas. I remember him and another of my brothers racing around this great, wide track, the cars sliding around the corners, and it was always my job to put the cars back on the track when needed. I remember it wasn't too long after Christmas day that my brother began disassembling the cars and modifying them, always trying to get more speed and better handling out of those now classic cars. What ever happened to that early set I do not know, but it certainly paid for itself in the memories it brings.

Ford GT40 MKI Sport

Scalextric Ford GT40 MKI Sport This has been an exciting year for Scalextric, coming out with more than it's share of "The Most Anticipated Cars Of The Year". The Ford GT-40 Mark 1 falls easily into that category. It's timeless styling is so hot even Ford is reproducing it again. Add that to it's rich history, and this car cannot fail.

The Ford GT-40 Mark 1's heritage begins not in 1968, from which this car is modeled, but in 1964 when the first MK 1's debuted in the Nurburgring 1000km race.

Sigma grand prix Monoposto F1 "Vintage"

SCX Vintage Sigma grand prix Monoposto F1 In 1973, SCX released their own version of the Sigma under the reference number 4047. The Sigma was produced by SCX until 1982. For whatever reason, it was gone from the slot car arena, but now, thanks again to SCX, we have a chance to enjoy it once again.

When I first heard about the new Vintage release of the Sigma, my reaction was "oh great, another Limited Edition". I personally feel that Limited Editions should be left to the diecast world, and slot cars should be raced. But one thing that attracted me to the Sigma was the $45 price tag.

Vintage Corvette Stingray Dragster

SCX Vintage Corvette Stingray Dragster slot car review What could be more fun than stepping into a time machine and exploring the past, complete with all the fun things that a given era had to offer? Since the invention of the time machine is still several years off, SCX has brought several treasures from the past back in their Vintage series. Every year, SCX digs a different item out from the archives. This year they have brought us the Corvette Stingray Dragster.

Lola T-260 Jackie Stewart

Vanquish MG Lola T-260 Jackie Stewart slot car review Seems as though 2002 was the year for the slot car, and went out with a bang with the release of the highly anticipated Vanquish MG Lola T-260. Two Liveries found their way to dealers just before the close of 2002; the Jackie Stewart L&M Sponsored version from Riverside 1971, and the Bob Nagel #17 from Mosport 1973.

Scale Buildings

scale buildings It's common for newcomers to start out with a simple layout on the living room floor, and slowly, sometimes quickly, get discontent with setting it up, taking it down, only to set it up again. It's normal to wish for something more permanent.

So when the decision is made to create a permanent, or semi- permanent layout, it is very common to want to add more than just track to the layout. It's the same thing that effects model railroaders, the need for detail and realism to complete the feel of real life racing.

Flaky Capri Fix

fly capri clear coat Since Fly released this car it has become quite popular, selling out soon after it's released. A lot of good things can be said about this car, and have been by many enthusiasts. But some Capri's came from the factory with less than stellar clear coat over the Tamp stampings, causing the markings to flake off or peel from use.

A lot of racers have made note of this and went about looking for a way to seal these markings for longer life and keep the beautiful appearance of the car.
