    The 1/32nd Scalextric Canadian Nationals

    Hello Everyone,

    ok, we talked about this and I think it is time to announce an official race. So get that stock Scaley ready or head out to any of the fine slot car retailers (Including ourselves) in the GTA and pick up a car.

    The Rules

    Any Scalextric Car Past or Present that was/is commercially available is eligible. NO F1/Formula Cars

    Chassis

    - Stock Chassis Can be used with Modifications (No metal, Any Modifications must be done with Plastic)
    **The New Slot it compatible chassis IS allowed**
    **3D Printed Chassis from ANY manufacturer are allowed**
    - Body Float Modifications are allowed
    - Adjustable front uprights are allowed (see the SCC kit)
    - Any manufacturers bushings allowed
    - Any manufacturers guide allowed
    - Any manufacturers gearing allowed
    - No minimum ride height (You must have 1mm between your Spur gear and the track in an angle or sidewinder car)
    - Lead weight allowed, must be inside the car (ie not stuck to the bottom of the chassis)

    Body

    - No modifications are allowed to the body other than to accommodate body float
    - No interior required (Windows must be painted black if no interior is used)
    - Body must appear as it came out of the box including all the detail parts
    - No cutting wheel arches to accommodate oversize tires

    Wheels/Tires

    - Wheels are open to any manufacturers wheels (Inserts Must be used, No bare aluminum wheels with or without holes)
    **If your wheels are Spoke or Star wheels as machined then this is ok as well**
    - Tires - OPEN (No traction compounds of any kind) Tires will be rolled on glass to check for residue
    - Wheels/Tires CAN NOT be visible from the top of the car

    Motor

    - The Stock motor that the car came with must be used. This is basically the only real rule for the class. No opening or modifying the motor in any way. No exceptions.
    - "Pro" scalextric motors are not allowed. Silver S-can motors only.
    - FF motors are no longer aloowed, even if they came in your car.


    Race Date

    Sunday March 5, 2017 (Doors OPEN at 10am and the Green Flag Drops after the Carrera Nationals)

    Race Fee

    FREE FREE FREE (Bring a few bucks so we can order pizza)

    The Format

    We will be racing 6 minute heats running The North Loop

    I am hoping that we will have a turnout from all of the local clubs. I would love to get everyone together for a once a year race. So pass the word along to everyone you know that races slot cars in the GTA. Every Slot Car racer should have a Scalextric Car in their box. It's time to pull it out and make it FAST!!!

    If you need any help or parts for your build see me at the store every weekend for FREE Help.

    Any questions? Ask right here. And post some pics of your build too!!!

    This is going to be a GREAT Race. Don't miss it!

    ok, when I originally created this class there was only 2 ways to get a FF motor in a car. It was either a smaller car (mini, escort, caterham, etc.....) or a F1 Car. Open wheelers were never allowed and I was fine with the FF motor in any of the chassis that it came in.

    Now the fact that Scalextric is using the FF motor in GT cars is a problem. So as not too make this class a 1 or 2 car class I am banning FF motors outright in this class.....weather it came with the car or not.

    I will update the rules with this now....so to answer your question, "Silver S-Can motors only".

    Cheers,
    Ron

    Just a reminder that the 2019 race is a month away! I was hoping to run the a new Ford GT but I noticed in the rules, although it says "motor that came with the car" it also says "silver can motors only" ... so clarification please .... is the FF motor not a can motor?

    Or should the wording me "silver S-Can motors only"?

    Well Done Gents! A HUGE congrats to Glen for being the 2017 Scalextric National Champion.

    Johnny Slots managed to grab a podium in the second race. Nice drive Johnny.

    Our defending Champ rounded out the Podium. A fine result Charlie.

    Gabriel had the fastest car (again) and just missed out on a double podium for the day. I will say that his cumulative result on the day was the best in the house! A great day of slot racing by a very talented driver/builder.

    Overall I think it was a VERY competitive field. We had the cars in the 6 second lap range right down to 14th place. Now that is close competitive racing.

    Thanks to everyone that came out. I am planning the 2018 race already.

    Well finally having a good day. Looks like i will be getting a ride in with Paul Koch who will get his first shot at the track. Also my cars are coming along well. DTM finally got it's old bullet back into it and the car is ready to fly. My Penske Porsche LMP has been transformed with a slot.it inline pod (even working lights).

    Looking forward to Sunday
