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 Carrera GT

carrera porsche carrera gt review Carrera has certainly been trying hard lately to be taken seriously in the slot car market. With the recent release of the Bentleys and the upcoming releases of the 'Cuda and Camaro muscle cars, Carrera seems to be on the right track, at least as far as model choice goes. To add to the growing list of exciting new releases is the Porsche Carrera GT. Based on the $315,000 exotic car of which only 500 will be built, the Carrera model has a lot going for it right off the bat.

Ford Focus WRC

SCX FocusTo a slot racer, Rally should mean fun! Rally should have some of the elements of the real motorsport, but keeping it safe within our living room or basement. We can simulate the stuck to the ground sensation of Formula 1, the bumping and banging of Nascar, but Rally is a bit tougher to catch the true feeling of.

SCX has been making Rally cars for some time now, and I thought it was time I experienced one.

Audi R8 "Gulf"

audi r8 Probably one of the most recognizable paint schemes in racing is the powder blue and orange Gulf arrangement. Even without the "Golf" logos, the scheme is still associated with the company it represents. From as early as 1967, the Golf logo has been synonymous with racing, and LeMans in particular.

The SCX Audi R8, in it's Gulf livery, is probably one of the most impressive looking LMP's available today. It brings the feeling of the old days rushing back, with the modern excitement of the current LMP styling to bring it up to date.

BMW V12 LMR Art Car

artcar BMW has a long history of "Art Cars". Beginning in 1975 with Alexander Calder adding his own touches to a BMW 3.0 and continuing to present day, even Andy Warhol had a hand in creating his own Art Car for BMW. Some truly outstanding pieces of artwork have been created using a BMW as a canvas. On this BMW V12 LMR, the 15th ever Art Car, Jenny Holzer seems to have stepped away from traditional mediums to create her artwork with a text editor.

Porsche 917PA & Chevron B21

Porsche 917PA & Chevron B21 slot car review The fit and overall finishes of the cars were excellent! There were no runs or dust specs in the paint. The clear coat was as glossy as it could be with no imperfections. The emblems were very crisp, striking, and very pleasing to the eye. A look into the interior revealed that it had a full in-depth interior complete with a full driver.

Scalextric Speedway set

speedway When Scalextric recently dropped their prices on sets and cars, I was hoping to find a few things I had perhaps missed out on in the past. Sure enough, some older NASCAR sets dropped dramatically in price and I could not pass on them this time around. I chose the Scalextric NASCAR Speedway set #C1041T. Not only does this set give you plenty of track if your looking to expand your existing layout, but it includes some of the finest running model cars you can buy with the 1999 NASCARS.

Mercedes CLK DTM

dtm The Ninco Mercedes DTM is, much like many of the new Ninco's, a very fine looking car right out of the box. The finish is very shiny and free of any dust or imperfections. The tampo printed markings are as sharp as they come. The silver, black and white scheme is really eye catching. Other exterior details include a windshield wiper, fairly sturdy mirrors, and a quite delicate Mercedes hood ornament.

Trans Am 1969 Chevy Camaro Sport Edition

scalextric chevy sport camaro slot car reviewThe #9 Camaro driven by Ronnie Buckman saw two victories that season, certainly no slouch when it comes to racing. Scalextric made no mistake in picking Ronnie's car for the match to Mark Donohue's Camaro.

The Scalextric Sport Camaro is a great companion to the impressive Trans Am Mustang released just over a month ago. The Sport version comes in an impressive display box with flip up top. Some prefer the clear plastic box, but it is my opinion that this car will spend far too much time on the track to warrant being put back in the box.
