Slot cars don't use radios for remote control. Instead, drivers tap into a track-based, 12-volt electrical system via a hand-held controller and conductive pads located at the front of each car.

 We have six "slots" or lanes  which allows for up to six cars to race against one another.

 During a race, after a set time (usually 2 minutes), the cars and drivers change lanes until they have raced on all six lanes.

 With cars travelling at 17 to 30 miles per hour, depending upon the class of race car, the action is so fast and furious that it takes a computer to follow the competition and register race positions and standings.

 

The Wellington Slot Car Club Incorporated, races 1/24 scale model cars each Thursday commencing at 7.30pm.


Each week we run our Falcon LMP, Falcon JK F1/Indy classes plus S16D & G12 classes

Our 53.5 metre (175.5 foot) 6-lane track is located in Lydney Place (upstairs adjacent to The Dental Centre), Porirua, New Zealand.
The track is powered POSITIVE to the left braid in the direction of travel. A 120 amp power supply producing 12.55 volts is connected in parallel to a large truck battery. 
 
 4" Flexi-chassis powered by Falcon or Super 16D motors are the mainstays of our racing schedule. We also race F1/Indy, Wing and Eurosport cars with Group12 motors once a month.
 
We collect a race night fee of $15.00 from racers who do not have an annual membership
 
A ready to race LMP slot car costs approximately $110.00
 
Club hand controllers are available, although most racers eventually purchase their own.
