    The PSCC No-Magnet Rules (Rev. 6.18.22)

    Sec. I: General (Apply to All Cars)
    Traction magnets must be removed from the cars. All other stock parts must be in their stock locations and working as intended. None of the original parts may be modified. The word “chassis” includes the main plate and the motor pod. Some additions and deletions are allowed, but if the rules don’t say you can do it, you can’t.
    A. You CAN:
    1. Use any rear wheels and tires listed below by class (the stock fronts stay). The front and rear tires may be glued to their rims, trued, and resized. The front tires may be coated with clear nail polish or super glue.
    2. Use any braid and any lead wires (only one lead per side).
    3. Replace any screw with a different type of similar size (e.g., Torx for Phillips).
    4. Use grub screws to adjust the front axle height if stock holes already exist for them.
    5. Tighten or loosen body and chassis screws to decrease or increase body and chassis movement.
    6. Add weight if it is firmly attached to the chassis inside the car.
    7. Repair stripped body posts with non-metallic materials (the length of the post must stay stock).
    8. Add or remove spacers on the guide shaft, axles, and body posts.
    9. Replace the stock guide with the alternate guide shown in the optional equipment chart below.
    B. The body must have all the original parts (full interior, numbers, sponsor decals, etc.) present. Small parts (aerials, mirrors, etc.) lost in crashes do not have to be replaced.
    C. The rear spoiler must be in position at the start of the race.
    D. The motor must be stock and clearly identifiable as the original equipment make and model. Any sign of tampering disqualifies the motor from competition.

    Sec. II: Individual by Class
    May supersede a general rule.
    A. Group C
    1. Any model of a Group C car (see the list below). Any rear fender skirts or wheel covers may be removed.
    2. If screws are used to set the front axle height, front axle blocks and bushings may be removed.
    3. Stock 9/28 gearset, no minimum weight.
    B. Can Am
    1. Any Thunderslot model of a car from the SCCA Can Am series (see the list below).
    2. Stock 11/32 Thunderslot gearset, no minimum weight.
    C. Modern GT
    1. Any NSR model of a GT car, 2011-present (see the list below). Sidewinder Shark 25 or 25 Evo motor only.
    2. Stock 11/32 NSR gearset, no minimum weight.
    D. Formula 1 85/89
    1. Any NSR F1 86/89 car.
    2. Stock 10/27 NSR gearset, no minimum weight.

    Sec. III: Technical Inspection
    Each entry must also comply with the following dimensions measured on the tech block with the guide in the slot and the braid and all four tires contacting the block.
    1. The axle gear must clear the block by .015” and all other parts must clear by .032".
    2. Formula 1: The maximum width of the rear axle assembly (wheels + tires + axle) is 69mm.
    3. Can Am, Group C and Modern GT: No part of the rear axle assembly (wheels + tires + axle) is allowed to extend past a line perpendicular to the track surface at the widest part of the fender.

    Sec. IV: Wheels and Tires
    Tests have shown that presently available Thunderslot, NSR, and Paul Gage tires fit the cars and work very well on the track. The rear wheel and tire lists below give the allowed sizes of both.
    NOTE: Wheel inserts are optional.

    A. Rear Wheels (use the original stock wheels, or any of the others listed for the class)
    Modern GT
    NSR 17 x 10mm (stock on most cars)
    NSR 16 x 10mm (stock on some cars)

    Group C 15.8 x 8.2 (stock) 15.8 x 10.2mm (option) 16.5 x 8.2 (stock on some cars)

    Formula 1
    NSR 13 x 10mm (stock)
    NSR 13 x 13mm (option)

    Can Am
    Thunderslot 14.3mm double flange (stock on early cars)
    Thunderslot 14.9mm double flange (stock on later cars)
    Thunderslot 15.85mm triple flange (stock on McLaren Elva)
    Thunderslot sponge rings (increase effective wheel diameter) optional on double flange wheels.

    B. Rear Tires (use the original stock tires, or any of the others listed for the class)

    Modern GT -
    Paul Gage 19125 or 20125; NSR Extreme GT3
    Group C - Paul Gage 20085, 20105 or 20115; Thunderslot slick, special slick, or super grip slick.

    So where is this event going to be held? What time do the doors open? Do folks need to apply to attend?

    It isn't mentioned, but this appears to be an event for 1/32nd scale cars.

      Well, Ed... you're right. We race 1/32 scale cars.

      The announcement was posted here at SCI so that the PSCC members have a place to exchange information, read the results of competitions they miss, and get advance notification of upcoming races. Our location is known to our members. Unfortunately, our present space is limited so we couldn't handle any additional racers without knocking out a wall which makes where and what time irrelevant.

      BTW we run on a routed wood track.

          The Parker Slot Car Club
          Inaugural In-Garage Invitational
          June 26, 2021

          Although a few invitees were unable to attend, six charter members were on hand for this momentous occasion as many cars had not turned a competitive lap in well over a year.

          During pre-race running, your correspondent repeatedly bounced his car off the vinyl wall surface in the final turn causing the car to come to rest in front of the drivers’ stations. Others had similar encounters with the surface in various areas. This situation precipitated the first activities of the day which included modifications to the track wall involving a heat gun, putty knife/scraper and box cutters as deemed appropriate.

          That settled and cars selected, the ‘serious’ stuff got under way.

          GROUP C (

          The first race was a little uneven as the rust was knocked off many a trigger finger and some of the track’s idiosyncrasies came to light. Let’s say that the black lane is best treated as a “do the best you can and try to ignore all the cars going by you” thing. Perhaps The Committee can do something about it? Anyway… the cars are geared to restrict top speeds and keep the performance close. The overtakes can be tricky. The track condition improved as the race went on and lap times fell as the surface wore in. The fast lap of the race (5.126 sec) was turned in by my humble self and late in the race. An assurance that things were bound to go downhill for me from that point on.
          1. Myself, 127.2
          2. Tony, 125.5 laps and a bit more than…
          3. Brian, 125.5
          4. Al, 120.5
          5. Drew, 119.2
          6. Nick, 100.9

          MODERN GT (NSR)

          Some very good-looking machines made their appearance for this class. The lap times were fractionally better than the C cars but that may have been due to the improving track conditions (or drivers getting acclimated to the new layout) rather than the cars. Time will tell. We had two identical black Mercedes GT3’s in the race. You would think that the lane stickers would sort that out BUT we have a black lane, and we have a purple lane. The black stickers (of course) became difficult to see and the purple stickers (more of a very pale lavender color) were near transparent and very difficult to see as well. Chaos ensued until someone figured out that if you piled several purple stickers on top of one another, the color became visible. Unfortunately, the race was over by then. Brian’s black Merc beat out Al’s black Merc for the win and posted the fast lap of 5.037 sec.
          1. Brian, 129.5 laps
          2. Al, 123.4
          3. Myself, 118.9 (told you)
          4. Drew, 106.9
          5. Tony, 106.6
          6. Nick, 95.9

          NSR F1 86/89

          These cars are great! Even Al likes them (inside joke). The only problem that arose was a shortage of cars. Not everyone had one. So, cars were shared depending on who was on track and who was marshalling. Some of us ran two different cars during the race. All of us were involved in some open-wheel tangling from time to time and there were a few stoppages to put tires back on rear rims that touched the wall or another wheel. Glue is indicated. The class of the field appeared to be Brian’s new Beatrice #33 which he shared with Drew. Tony had his left rear tire deranged on several occasions. Al couldn’t avoid a few pile-ups as well as suffering from the tire issue. Nick finished with several teeth missing from his crown gear. This became a running gag as his speed came and went and several mechanical adjustments were made between heats.
          1. Brian, 135.1 laps and fast time of 4.824 sec. (used two cars)
          2. Myself, 134.1 (stayed out of trouble and kept the tires on)
          3. Tony, 128.1 (quick but a victim of the tire problem)
          4. Al, 122.3 (troubles, troubles, troubles)
          5. Drew, 117.3 (kept himself to himself, used two cars and an unknown number of controllers)
          6. Nick, 107.9 (the gear thing)


          Quite a race long contest between Al and Tony as they swapped spots several times.
          1. Brian, 142.3 – McLaren Elva
          2. Myself, 135.9 – Lola T70
          3. Al, 126.5 – Lola T70
          4. Tony, 125.2 – Lola T70
          5. Drew, 116.9 – McLaren M6A
          6. Nick, 109.9 – Lola T70 Mk III

          Fast lap was Brian with a 4.710.

          We enthusiastically recommend the new Thunderslot black material slicks for “no grip” tracks.

            Thank you, Mr. Laird, for the wonderful write-up.

            The event was a successful "shakedown" event to find out what works and what doesn't work for our newly-envisioned race series.

            In terms of racing, there were several heats where the lap total was within 1-2 laps (on a ~5 second course!) for all 4 drivers. The first race ended up with half the field within a single racing lap.

            The car spec, along with the overall track design, appears to provide close racing. A single deslot could be worth a lap!

            The tires were a large consideration coming into the event, with copious amounts of testing used to decide on an acceptable spec. In the end, the combination of Paul Gage XPG's and Thunderslot "No Grip" tires proved to be a winning combination. The Thunderslot tires, in particular, were decidedly effective and turned the current leading time of 4.710!

            The Thunderslot Can-am and F1 86/89 proved to be the standout classes in terms of performance and grip. Group C provided the closest racing. GT still needs to find its legs, and is looking to be a potentially great class in the making.

            We're looking forward to our next event in the coming weeks, and we'll have more to update and share at that point.

              Excellent race report and great pictures too! Glad to hear that the inaugural event of the Parker Slot Club went well. It sounds like all of the pre-event testing paid off. Congratulations.

                  From Brian... a very helpful video on how to set up your NSR F1 86/89 for racing. Tires are the key components just as they are in full scale racing.

                    Our second event is scheduled for July 17th, 2021. Usual time and schedule of events.

                      The Parker Slot Car Club
                      2nd Garage Invitational
                      July 17, 2021

                      The usual suspects braved the downpours of a waterlogged western New York to make the event (Tony arriving late due to flooding and local road closures). Early arrivers watched the qualifying race from the FIA British Grand Prix until everyone was assembled.
                      NOTE: Our track is divided into 10 sections. Distances covered are not given in decimals. A car just past the starting line registers 1 section in addition to the laps covered. A car just short of the line registers 10 sections. So… 124.10 indicates not quite 125 laps.

                      GROUP C

                      The "conservation of momentum" class was close, again.
                      1. Brian, 130.7 laps (new record) - Lancia
                      2. Tony, 127.2 - Porsche
                      3. The Laird, 127.1 - Porsche
                      4. Big Al, 125.6 - Lancia found in a tackle box in his basement
                      5. Nick 114.2 (controller problems that plagued him all day) - a car (sorry, Nick... wasn't paying attention)
                      6. Drew, 113.4 (arrived late) - Porsche

                      MODERN GT
                      The black Mercs were at it again. The winning car from last month won again with a different driver. The purple sticker issue was overcome from last month, but the black-on-black wasn't. Brian opted for a white Merc and lost 4th to Drew (another white Merc) by a fraction of an inch. Nick lost his rear spoiler.
                      1. Tony, 130.6 - (new record) - Merc, black
                      2. The Laird, 128.10 (new single lap record of 4.944) - Aston Martin
                      3. Big Al, 127.3 - Merc, black
                      4. Drew, 124.10 - Merc, white (great run with a new, rushed set up car)
                      5. Brian, 124.10 - Merc, white
                      6. Nick, 107.10 - Audi (tried a different controller)

                      F1 86/89

                      There were many, many altercations and unplanned comings-together during this contest. The first heat being particularly messy. The results are subject to revision due to a wet scoresheet. It may be that The Laird set a new single lap record of 4.811, but we'll see.
                      1. The Laird, 133.8 (possible 4.811 lap)
                      2. Brian, 131.5.
                      3. Big Al, 130.7 (?)
                      4. Drew, 129.1 (great outing with another brand new, out-of-the-box car)
                      5. Tony, 118.8 (?)
                      6. Nick, 114.9, (more controller issues)

                      Can Am

                      These results are also subject to revision due to the same wet scoresheet. Tony drove last month's winner and it won again. This was the only class that failed to better last months performance.
                      1. Tony, 137
                      2. Brian, 134.5
                      3. The Laird, 127.4
                      4. Big Al, 122.9+
                      5. Drew, 122.9
                      6. Nick, 106.9 (may have changed controllers again)

                      As we accumulate data we will be posting analytical reports on a wide variety of performance parameters. watch this space.
