Exciting News!

We’ve been invited back the Greystone Concourse d’Elegance

Following the attendance success of its 2013 display, we were invited back to the 2014 Concours d‘Elegance at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA.

The display will be attended to by noted author Robert Schleicher, museum owner Scott Bader, and Los Angeles Slot Car Museum curator Philippe de Lespinay.

We hope you’ll join us – it is an amazing event! But if you can’t, don’t fret… We’ll be taking lots of pictures (and video too)!

The updated display will be larger than last year’s as the Greystone is giving us the whole main room of the mansion. If you were there last year you’ll remember we had to share it with other exhibitors and it was a bit noisy. Not this year – it’s all ours!

Pics from last year’s Greystone Concourse d’Elegance

Down Under Delta Wing

We recently reported that Avant Slot is developing a slot racing model of the Delta Wing car that competed at LeMans. Some hobbyists, however, are not waiting for that project to bear fruit. Customer Andy Whyte of Australia sends us photos of his resin-bodied Delta Wing in 1/32 scale.

He writes:

With reference to your recent email showing the fascinating Avant prototype Nissan Delatawing, I have made my own version using an extensively lightened AA 1/32 resin body from the UK and a modified Scalextric F1 chassis with an F130 motor, NSR tyres all around and decals from Pattos Place, Australia. As I used mainly parts from my spares ” bin “, the total cost was $50.

You will see from the chassis view that I used a single brass bearing held by a portion of an old plastic chassis which was then bonded with Araldite into the resin body. This supports a small length of 3/32 axle to which both front wheels are attached.

I thought long and hard over the guide position and came up with the same solution as Avant. It handles well but is not very forgiving when on the limit. An alternative would be a TSRF pin-guide in front of the front wheels- there should be room!

Nice work, Andy! Thanks for sending us these photos.

We welcome submissions like this from our readers. If you have a scratchbuilt, kitbashed, repainted, or otherwise unique slot car you would like to see featured in our newsletter we invite you to send photos and a description of your car to support@electricdreams.com.

New wheel insert product line

Electric Dreams is now carrying the EZ-Mag line of injection-molded plastic wheel inserts for 1/2″ and 5/8″ i.d. wheels. Because they are injection-molded plastic, not resin-cast, you can wash them before painting with ordinary soap and water. You don’t have to scrub them to a farethewell to get resin-casting mold release agent off. EZ-Mag inserts come in several styles, molded in your choice of black or silver. You can see our selection of these inserts here.

Vintage NASCAR at America’s Car Museum

A member of the Electric Dream team got a day at ACM, aka the LeMay Museum, as a Fathers’ Day gift. One of the exhibits was a collection of historic NASCAR stock cars. Here are some of the photos he took…

A 55 Chevy prepared by none other than the legendary Smokey Yunick.

This is a replica of a 56 Ford convertible raced by Curtis Turner. At one time the convertibles we a popular division of NASCAR. Note that back then they raced these cars with all the chrome trim in place. They really were, for the most part, stock cars.

A 66 Chevy Impala raced by Roy Mayne. For part of his driving career he was a US Army officer who managed to arrange his duty schedule so he could go to races.

A couple of Richard Petty cars, a 70s Oldsmobile and a 90s Pontiac.

Another 70s car, this one driven by Bobby Allison.

Allison also drove this Ford.

No wonder drafting worked so well back in those days. Can you imagine the hole this squared-off body style punched through the air? A lot of the 70s cars could be mistaken for packing boxes for today’s cars. Notice, also, how few decals many of these cars had on them. The days of live network TV, megadollar corporate sponsorships and rolling billboards were still in the future.

America’s Car Museum is a must-see for any car enthusiast. If you ever find yourself in the Seattle/Tacoma, Washington area make time to tour its multiple levels featuring cars of all kinds on display. It will be well worth your time. Visit the ACM web site at http://www.lemaymuseum.org for more information.

And speaking of the museum, its management has been interested from the beginning in holding slot car racing events as an ongoing part of its overall program. We are told that the first of these, a race for 1/32 scale TransAm cars, will be announced shortly. The scheduled date will be October 18-19, 2013. Both in-person and mail-in entries will be accepted with a local slot racing club managing the racing of the mail-in entries. Watch for an official announcement with full information to appear on the various slot car web sites and on the museum’s site before the end of this month.

RS Slot Racing aluminum wheels

We just received our first shipment of these impressive wheels.  They come in sizes for both scale 15″ and 13″ for 1/32 scale cars. The 13-inchers will also work on 1/43 scale cars that use 3/32″ axles.  RS wheels fit a large selection of tires with varying profiles from Indy Grips, Maxxtrac, Super Tires, Ortmann and others.  These wheels are not only a direct replacement for the BWA wheels for 3/32″ axles, they are an improvement on them.  Because the RS wheels use an M2 setscrew instead of a 4-40 they have a deeper “dish” than the BWAs.  They also fit BWA inserts, and you can vary the apparent depth of the wheels just by spacing the inserts farther in or out.  You can see and purchase these wheels now on our web site.

We just received the new line of X-compound ti res from Maxxtrac and we will have them on line for ordering as soon as possible.  The manufacturer says these silicone tires offer significantly enhanced grip over the previous compound.

Just the one new item this week, but…

Los Angeles Slot Car Museum will display vintage slot cars at major classic car event

The Los Angeles Slot Car Museum (LASCM) has been invited to display part of its vast collection of vintage slot cars at the Greystone Mansion Concours d’ Elegance.  The event’s web site at http://www.beverlyhills.org/exploring/greystonemansionconcoursdelegance/  describes it as”The premiere Southern California Concours d’Elegance, held on the grounds of historic Greystone Mansion & Park in the heart of Beverly Hills”.

LASCM will show four large display cases (one case shown below) full of some of the rarest and most significant models in the history of the slot car hobby.  This is only a fraction of the total LASCM collection, easily the most complete and highest-quality vintage slot car collection in the world.

If you live anywhere in Southern California and enjoy both slot cars and life-sized cars this is a must-see event for you.  For those readers who live outside the greater Los Angeles area, you can explore the rich history of slot car racing at LASCM’s virtual slot car museum on line at http://lascm.com/Slot-Car-Museum/.   Visit the site often and see new exhibits as they are added.

Scalextric parts

We have just received a massive shipment of Scalextric W-numbered parts. It includes many parts we have never had available to us before, including parts for quite a few cars released in the lady year or so. It also includes a lot of parts we had been told were discontinued but now turn out not to be. We are working to get these parts on line with illustrations as rapidly as possible but it will probably be at least a week to two weeks before we complete the task. In any case, check our web site frequently for new additions. There’s a good chance we’ll be offering that crucial Scalextric part you have been looking for but nobody seems to have.

Paint test

You’ll recall that a couple of newsletters ago we showed you a Fly Lola T70 body we were going to use to test samples of a new paint line for possible inclusion in our selection of items for sale. Alas, the paint did not test out well, so we will not be adding it. However, we still had the body, so we decided to go ahead and paint and decal it anyway. Here’s where we are on it as of today.

The paint is just an airbrushed overall bright red lacquer. The white stripe is cut with a very sharp hobby knife from plain white decal paper. The numbers and other markings are odds and ends from our decal box. Still left to do are a few more decals, some detail painting, and clear coating. More to come.

Christmas shipping information

Here are the suggested ordering deadlines to ensure that your Christmas purchases get to you in plenty of time for the big day, whatever part of the world you live in.

US Postal Service within the US:

FIRST CLASS MAIL : DEC. 17

PRIORITY MAIL:  DEC. 18

EXPRESS MAIL:  DEC. 22 (Check your local Post Office)

Please note that Express Mail is the only USPS service that guarantees the delivery date.

US Postal Service International:

First class mail international – 5 to 21 business days  – Dec. 2nd

Priority mail international – 6 to 10 business days – Dec. 10th

Express mail international – 3 to 5 business days – Dec. 15th

Delivery dates with these services are not guaranteed as customs can delay packages and that is out of anyone’s control.

United Parcel Service:

UPS does not give specific dates but here is our best approximation:  Basically, UPS Ground shipments (our free shipping method for tracks)  take up to 6 business days depending on distance from our warehouse to the customer.  If you’re within a couple hundred miles of Los Angeles it typically gets there next day.  A state or two away might take a couple days, and so on.   A shipment to the East Coast might take a week, perhaps more if Christmas shipping volume is exceptionally heavy.  UPS does not guarantee delivery dates. Customers should account for 2 handling business days before order is shipped ( We almost always ship in 1 day but we’re being careful) and their distance from Los Angeles. You can use the www.UPS.com time and cost calculator to see the expected delivery date based on shipment date.  If you have special needs please call our warehouse at (310) 676-7600 or e-mail shop@electricdreams.com for further information.
