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.

Austin Healey Mk III

ninco austin healey mkIII review Spanish slot maker Ninco has found a unique niche in the diverse market of 1/32 scale cars. Their "Classic" series includes an assortment of timeless sports cars including the Shelby Cobra, Porsche 356, Ferrari 250 Testa Rosa and Jaguar XK-120. Packed with relatively powerful motors, narrow wheels, tall tires and the curving bodywork of these historic road cars, the Ninco Classic series is the exact opposite of today's super stuck down magnet cars. Like their prototypes, as well as the slot cars of yore, these cars have to be driven around the track - rewarding an experienced and gentle finger on the throttle, wise use of brakes and the traditional sports car concept of "slow in, fast out" for corners.

Porsche 917/10k

917/10 Hurley Haywood, driver of the #59 Porsche 917/10 stated "It was a car for wild men and crazy boys, and I was just that guy." The car he spoke of boasted 1100+ horse power from it's 5.0 liter twin turbo engine. At top speed it could cruise along at over 200 miles per hour. Haywood finished third in the 1973 series.

FLY's introduction of the Haywood Porsche has been eagerly awaited. The preview pictures we saw showed what appeared to be the coolest new release FLY has offered in a long time. This was sure to be a hit.

Building a Ferrari 250LM

how to build a ferrari 250lm slot car from a kit One thing I really think is great about slot cars is that, if you want to, you can buy or build a car that not only looks great on a shelf, but also can run and be enjoyed as the real car could be enjoyed. With this in mind, I also like to build/own slot cars as the originals were produced. In other words, a Cobra should be front engine, rear drive, Formula 1 cars, mid engine rear drive, etc.

Johnny Lightning's Thunderjet 500 slot cars

johnny lightningPlaying Mantis, under the brand of Johnny Lightning, has been producing quality diecast for years. Known for their all metal construction, and multi-piece, often rubber tires, Johnny Lightning diecast is preferred by collectors as being the benchmark of quality small scale diecast. Within the last couple years, Playing Mantis released a line of pull-back cars with replica bodies of Thunder Jet and ThunderJet 500 slot cars. Questions started flying about whether Playing Mantis would introduce it's own line of slot cars.

Trans Am Mustang Sport edition

mustang When it comes to new releases, this may be the single most anticipated model Scalextric has offered, at least in my humble opinion. Finally arriving is the Scalextric Sport Trans-Am Mustangs in all their American Glory. Were they worth the wait and hype attached to them? You bet!

The Trans-Am series is very popular here, especially the vintage classes still running events today within certain clubs and organizations. The Historic Trans-Am Group is racing them once again, even with some of the original drivers!

Porsche 356A Sebring Speedster

Porsche 356A Sebring Speedster The Ninco Classics are nothing to new to most of you, but just in case you neglected to pick one up, you might want to read on. Don't let the looks of these cars fool you, they are quick, detailed, and a whole lot of fun to race. I made the mistake on passing these up at first, I am glad I came to my senses.

I chose the Porsche 356-A Speedster Sebring, primarily on its looks alone. Not being much of a 1:1 fan, nor having extensive knowledge of the series, did not stop me from enjoying the car when I saw it.

Subaru Impreza WRC 4x4

ninco 4x4 subaru wrcNinco's Subaru WRC is a great looking example of the rally cars of today. Billed as a limited edition this particular Subaru WRC is only a few dollars more than the regular issue version, and as such should not be a deterrent to taking it out and running it. Though the deco looks like it could have come from an actual car, I don't believe it is anything but a fantasy livery. The scheme is basically the inverse of the Subaru sponsored entry, with other Ninco related markings and no drivers specified.
