I recently got back into slot cars after about a 6 year break by picking up a 1/32 scale Scalextric Start Rally set, Scalextric Aston Martin, and Scalextric Corvette C6R. I'm now looking for a group to race with.

Got a few questions for you:

1. When do you guys meet up?
2. How often do you run 1/32 scale?
3. Is the track a slick, routed wood where silicone tires are a must for traction, or do the standard rubber tires get decent traction as well? (I don't have silicone's on my cars yet, as I currently only run on a Scalextric Start track at home).

Thanks in advance,
Shannon

Hi, Shannon - to SCI! This is quite an old Thread, so may not be noticed or responded to right away.

In my experience, commercial tracks seem to work with a variety of tire types, with rubber/urethane compounds generally the quickest - or even foam tires, particularly once a groove gets laid down.

If you don't get a response here from the track owners, give them a call at 903-534-4675.

Cheers, Paul

Hi Shannon,

We spoke on the phone the other day. We usually race on Thursday nights. I e-mailed you some information. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Chris

Yes we are still here. We run mainly 1/24 cars, but we all have some 1/32 Slot.it cars if you ever want to come run with us.
