"Slot Cars Magazine" Announced

Model Cars Magazine publisher Gregg Hutchings has announced a new magazine for the slot car hobby called Slot Cars Magazine, with an anticipated first issue dated January 2015. The magazine will be a bi-monthly, print and online magazine published six times a year.

Hutchings states that he is "committed to bringing you the best slot car magazine you have ever seen!" Since he has chosen multi-talented painter, illustrator and builder Jairus Watson as the editor for the new publication, that's a promise that very likely will be fulfilled.

Quick Slicks High-Performance Tires


Introducing Quick Slicks

Quick Slicks are high-performance silicone tires for 1:32 slot cars.  Quick Slicks offer a combination of features that have not been available in silicone slot car tire until now.   Quick Slicks are an easy, affordable upgrade to improve your car’s performance.

Quick Slicks Features

  • Made in U.S.A.
  • Available to fit many popular 1:32 Euro-Style aluminum and magnesium “set screw” wheels from a wide variety of manufacturers including C.B. Design, NSR, Slot.it and Sloting+.   Initially Quick Slicks are available in 27 sizes with more planned for the near future.
  • Quick Slicks provide excellent grip on all racing surfaces – plastic or wood (painted).  The cleaner the racing surface, the better the grip.
  • Slip-on or Glue/true – the choice is yours.  If you’re a casual racer, gluing is not required - you can simply slip-on a pair of Quick Slicks and start racing.  If you are a more serious racer and prefer to “glue and true” your tires for maximum performance, Quick Slicks work very well with a tire adhesive such as IC2000.
  • If you do decide to go the glue/true route, Quick Slicks require less effort to do so than other silicone tires.  Same goes for (optionally) adjusting the profile where the sidewall and contact patch meet.
  • Rounded outer sidewalls on all Quick Slicks give them a realistic appearance like real tires.  The rounded outer sidewalls appear realistic regardless of a given tire’s outer diameter (o.d.) – no unrealistic, bulging sidewalls.
  • Quick Slicks designed for a specific wheel are the same width regardless of outer diameter – an important consideration when rules require tires to fit under the car body and you want to experiment with different tire diameters.
  • Quick Slicks were developed by actual 1:32 racers based on our own real-world racing experience and feedback from a large number of other 1:32 racers.
  • Quick Slicks are affordable.  In fact, they typically cost $1.00 - $2.00 per pair less than other 1:32 silicone tires (our 1:24 tires are up to $4.00 per pair less).  This is often an important consideration whether you race alone or participate in club/organized racing.


We offer a Quick Slicks Wheel Selector to assist you to identify which wheels fit a given Quick Slicks tire.  Still not sure which Quick Slicks you need for a particular application?  Give us a call (or drop us an email) and we’ll do our best to assist you.


Additional Quick Slicks Are In The Works

We’re already working hard to expand the existing Quick Slicks lineup – look for upcoming announcements as they become available.

Carrera 1/24 S-Can Motor Adapter

No question about it, Carrera 1/24 scale cars are pretty awesome. Unfortunately, most people are not able to take them to their full potential because of power issues. Now there is an affordable solution: Use the Devis 3d Designs Carrera 1/24 S-Can Motor Adapter and run the same voltage as your other cars!

The adapter allows you to keep everything but the motor stock. It even lets you reuse the same hardware so there is no fumbling around for the right screws. We have made this adapter reversible so you can use either can or endbell side shaft to fit your motor application.
