On April 24, 1999, North Coast Performance Hobbies held its 5th year anniversary slot car race entitled the International 32 slot car Championship 1 Hour slot car  Enduro. The first place prize for this slot car race was $100.00 cash. After much anticipation the NCP 5th anniversary Parma International 32 Slot Car Enduro finally became a reality. We drew participants from Michigan and Ohio for what turned out to be a great slot car event. The racing was close, the gears were gone, and everyone left with a smile on their face.

The weapon to do battle with was the Parma International 32 slot car chassis with a Pla-Fit #8631 Cheetah 80% motor. This combination evened out the horsepower advantage. All of the slot cars were constructed in the same way as the custom built version that we sell world wide. Gears, Gears, Gears; these guys tried to run NCP out of gears while trying to get the fastest lap time with various combinations.

 

In this race we did not allow magnets or lead in the slot cars, and the racers were not aloud to modify the slot cars in any way. The only spur gear allowed in this race were the Parma PSE Pink Spur ones. We handed out the motors 3 hours before the race began. The slot car motors were numbered and dyed to ensure the closest racing possible.

The track that we raced on was our antique 135 foot American Hillclimb slot car track. Our track is complete with over and under bridges and a constant 14 volts of power. Our slot car track features magnatech braid that is slightly recessed with 4 power taps. One lap around our track offers a long straight away, a trip over or under a bridge, another straight, and a climb up to the top section where the lanes cross over each other one more time. Where else can the Red and the Black lane race side by side part of every lap?

The Race:
The slot car race consisted of each driver running all eight of the lanes for 7 1/2 minutes in a round robin format. During this race we had 7 different lead changes by the slot car racers. Otis Young had the highest average lap total of 76.4 laps per lane.

Slot Car Concourse:
Our slot car concourse winner of the day was Brad Gilbert. He entered the race with a Panoz slot car body that looked great. (I wish he would spend that much time on the bodies that he paints for us!) He took the time to paint the driver and interior to match the colors of the slot car body. His award for the best looking body was his choice of any three clear bodies. Great job Brad!!!
