Our next Vintage race is Saturday, September 28, at Dom's Raceway. Track opens 5 PM, free practice until  6:30 PM,  first race starts a few minutes after. Please call me with any questions - (609) 713-3696. Thanks, Dominick.

1) First race: mid-1960s era 36D-powered production chassis cars made by Gar-Vic, Cox, Classic, Renwall, Dynamic, and similar. . Any body from that time era is okay, original or reproduction.  Inline or sidewinder chassis only.  I have a few loaner cars ready if you want to try before you hunt one down for your own.

2) Second race: American Line Sportsman/hot rod kit cars sold by REH Distributing, also 36D motors. I have a few kits in stock for sale ready to race.  Also a few loaners will be ready if you want to try before you buy.

If any one would like to just stop by and take a look, you're welcome, too!

  Whether you raced these types of cars back in the mid 1960s or have never raced them before, you are welcome to join in for the fun. We have loaner cars for both classes. Our group consists of both racers from the past and present, from young to old. We have racers coming from Pa, NY and NJ so far. At our last race we had 14 racers, with 5 that could not make it that had planned to be there, and even more that have raced with us in the past! 

 

   Dom's Hillclimb is clean, smooth and well maintained. Plenty of pit space, and a well stocked counter with new to vintage era parts, as well as Dom's own vintage re-issue bodies (clear and painted). And another bonus is all of the food provided between races. We race vintage cars for fun, so check us out, stop by and maybe see a few racers that you have not seen for a long time.

 

   Coming soon: 1970 era Vintage Anglewinders (any 1970's era anglewinder chassis, ProSlot PS-4001 Euro MK-1 motor, same era original or re-issue Can-Am body). Several cars already built, more almost race ready, so when enough cars are completed we will start racing these. My test cars handle great- smooth, quiet, very easy to race.

  (note that the brass chassis car still has the older Plafit motor that is not available, so we are using the ProSlot motors now)

ok vintage car fans, this coming Saturday is our next race. Dom's wife is probably preparing our menu now. And bring out your vintage anglewinder cars, chassis, whatever you have and let's get this class started and onto Dom's Hillclimb.

I spoke with Dom from Dom's Raceway and we have 11 racers that we know of so far, and we always have a few that show up race day. Last month we had 14 racers there with 5 that did not show. With all that have raced with us so far in this Vintage Racing series we have over 20 racers, with more coming on board each month, so far from 3 states.  More races, more racers, and more Vintage Racing classes coming. 

 

watch for other vintage racing related announcements:

 

- Jail Door Racing upcoming race and 2020 schedule

 

- C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club monthly meetings: we meet on the first Thursday night of every month at The Race Place, Farmingdale, NJ. Watch for the October meeting night announcement in the Club Forum. This is open to the public, and we bring all types and scales, from h.o. to 1/24, of vintage slot cars for display, discussion, track time, trade and swap. We share ideas, restoration project help, source parts and cars, and anything related to vintage slot cars.

Up until last month the vintage 36D cars was our take it easy and relax class. Well Dom and Jimmy Roselli have turned up the heat and super tuned their fleet of cars, and most everyone else has too! Gears changing, Jail Door rears, etc and now we race these old cars like Flexi cars!

Stay tuned as Dom, Jimmy and myself are planning what is coming next: two anglewinder classes.

After this race we track tested some anglewinder cars. We decided to try the 36D class next. Here are two cars that I have built. One is a Riggen chassis the other was sold as a rtr car by America Line as sold by REH Distributors.

The other anglewinder class with ProSlot motors were also tested. A few period chassis were reviewed and cars are being built. We will begin racing these cars once more cars are completed.

F.Y.I. I think that American Line 36D chassis was first sold in the US by Riggen too. This chassis was available in both brass or steel. I think both were made in Japan.
