  • Important Announcement

    Scaleracing LLC is proud to announce we have purchased Slot Car Illustrated, and all associated Web Sites, from Ken McClellan.

    Since February 2002 Ken McClellan has built and maintained www.SlotCarIllustrated.com and in that time he, with the support and help of you the readers and contributors, has taken the site from a small information site into one of the Premiere Sites on the Internet for Model Car Racing. Ken has decided to step aside and we at Scaleracing LLC have agreed to purchase Slot Car Illustrated and all associated sites to continue on the great start Ken has made.

    Ken has had other business opportunities arise and could not dedicate the time needed to keep Slot Car Illustrated running as the premier Model Car Racing Web Site. Ken has done a tremendous job in building SCI into the site it is today and we at Scaleracing LLC intends to continue that job. This fantastic Hobby needs promotion and Scaleracing LLC intends to with your help, promote and build this hobby, we will be adding to the Magazine side of the site as soon as possible.

    The mission of the site will remain largely unchanged we will review new product as it becomes available.

    We plan to add to the site in the next few months to continue building SCI and help supply information to the general public interested in getting involved with the fun hobby of Model Car Racing. We will be looking for several people to help maintain the different parts of the Bulletin Board System to keep things on track and on a positive note. We will continue to do reviews of the latest product and help solve problems along with you, the fellow Model Car (Slot) Racers and Modelers. Scaleracing LLC is determine to provide quality independent reviews, we will support and review all available brands equally.

    We will layout what we find acceptable and hopefully people will respect the intent of this site to help grow this hobby.

    We are going to discontinue the sponsored reviews, and switch to reviews of product supplied by the Manufacturers and Distributors to this Industry. We can then promote all the stores who support this hobby by carrying product, and helping expose the hobby to a much larger audience, in their local (High Street) Stores. We will be adding a Club Page to the site and BBS so Clubs can communicate with each other, discussing how they run races and build, maintain and even create some of their cars. We will feature Club Tracks and go behind the scenes and find out how they built their tracks from Artin to Oak. This site will continue to be the best place to visit to discuss the hobby, with how to's and fixes on the latest cars as well as tune up/ hop up sections.

    We will no longer permit the posting of links or continual chat about EBAY or the availability of product at different pricing from other markets. We are primarily an American Site trying to help grow the Hobby in North America. We are well aware that prices are different in other markets and everyone is free to shop where they want, we believe the market in America will not continue to grow if the American public does not support it, and will do all we can to support American Stores selling the products we use to enjoy this hobby.

    We will not allow posts that link to other Web Sites that sell Slot Car related product in other markets. We will support the sponsors of this site, please respect them, as without their support this site would not exist.

    We are very interested in hearing from fellow Model Car Racers in other markets as to how they enjoy this hobby and will post links to SlotForum and Old Weird Herald as valuable Independent Information Sites.

    I hope we can continue the growth Ken has seen in the last year and three quarters, I am sure Ken will be back from time to time, hopefully doing guest reviews.

    We would like to thank all who post here, and thank you for the success of this site to date. We hope you will continue to contribute to the flow of good information posted here.

    Again thank you all, especially Ken McClellan, please remember it's your Hobby too, start a trend Race a Friend.

    Happy Holidays
