The Thunder Returns!
Monday November 01, 2021

Dave Smith's legendary Hear The Thunder race made a return appearance at Ron Constantin's new Viper track in Woodburn Oregon. This famous race is a spot light event for vintage Aurora Model Motoring Thunderjet 500 chassis.

For this return race Dave had set up and tuned three sets of cars for IROC style races. Johnny Lightning Corvette Grand Sport bodies were used on original Thunderjet 500 chassis for one set of cars. The second set of cars were original A/FX non-Magnatraction chassis fitted with customized A/FX Porsche 911 bodies. The third set of cars were new OS3 TFX chassis fitted with Jimmy Flintstone '33 Plymouth coupe bodies.

This was destined to be an awesome race from the start!

NASTE Annual Halloween Race for 2021
Sunday October 31, 2021

It looked bleak at one point but we pulled it off!

Nine racers made it out to haunt Howie's Rapid Raceway in the running of the 2021 Halloween Race! The race which includes one daylight session and one session in darkness was contested by a very diverse field. Everything from skeletons to dinosaurs!

This is a race, make that an event, that has to be experienced to be understood. OK, maybe another poor choice of words. I've been too many and I still don't fully understand them, anyway they are just way too much fun!

NASTE provides slot car hobbyist’s with opportunities to further their interest in slot cars through social gathers as well as structured race programs. NASTE also connects with other clubs which provides even more options for racing.

NASTE was established in 1996 by a small group of slot car racing enthusiasts in the Portland, Oregon area that wanted something different. At first we raced on a short, 3 lane routed 1/24 scale track. The racing was intense! Click here to view the original site. Soon we expanded adding more tracks to the racing schedule.

Our goal is to make our racing inexpensive, with the main focus being on having FUN! Besides, we have learned that low tech can be very competitive!
