IROC Return Planned
Wednesday February 14, 2024


The time has come to restart the NASTE IROC program.  IROC racing pits drivers against each other using the same cars so the difference is a combination of luck and the drivers ability.  Just about like real racing.  It's also a great entry point for those new to the hobby - just show up and drive!

RTR Slot Cars - BRM
Wednesday September 20, 2023



First in our series featuring Ready-To-Run (RTR) 1:24 Scale slot cars is BRM.

In their own words:
It all began in the mid-nineties, when the BRM founder, Mr Pascal Baratella, a passionate model maker, decided to repaint and customize some “slotcar” models of that period that had been produced to be more functional and beautiful.

The satisfaction of seeing their creations compete against each other created the conditions for the birth of the “BRM” in 2003. Initially with the opportunity to enter the static worldwide modeling market producing tires and accessories and later, in 2006, with the production of the first 1/24 scale BRM slot car model.

Welcome to NASTE

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! So, check out our cars and tracks and drop us a line if you have any questions or comments. And if you're in our local area, feel free to join us. You are more than welcome.
