As some of you may know, a program I am affiliated with has got slot car racing into a school in Brooklyn, NY.  We have been going strong for just over a year now.  Mostly teaching how to drive a basic slot car and some minor mechanics.  

 

This upcoming year we plan on having a proper curriculum for the students. I however am looking for any type of tutorials that have been already made up that I can post around the classroom. We are looking for anything, from putting bodies on a car, to building complete cars. I have taken some stuff off Slotblog here and printed them out and it's going great.

 

 Just looking around to see if there's anything else around the web/Slotblog that I can post around the classroom

 

Many thanks,

 

Chubby

 

Also you can forward to my email if you're more comfortable that way: G7Chubby@hotmail.com.,

Mick A. out of Slot Car City in Los Vegas has made some good "How-to" DVDs.  

 

Also, I found this 12 part series on YouTube. No sound and deals with 1/32 but may be useful.  Part 1 is here:

I have made some tutorials covering different aspects in building chassis and preparing and painting bodies - feel free to use them as you wish.

In the parts counter I have tutorials for the FANG and Stalker kits.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

Joe,
 
I would strongly recommend that you turn the students on to Moto-Tools AKA Dremels and their operation. Not only will this teaching be helpful in slot racing but it will be a tool that they can and will use the rest of there life in many everydays repairs.
 
I just used my Dremel the other day to cut a radiator hose clamp off of my van.
