The Slot Car Corner Pit Board is designed to make it easier to keep your pit area organized when assembling and disassembling your slot cars. Measuring 11-7/8" L x 9-1/2" W x 1/2" D, the SCC Pit Board is CNC routed from high-density plastic. Designed primarily for use with 1:32 slot cars, it can also be used for many 1:24 slot cars as well (see pictures in "FAQ" section). Features include:
A - Raised 1/4" wide border keeps small parts on the Pit Board where they belong. No more searching the floor on your hands and knees for body screws, set screws, etc.
B - Recessed lubrication holders (2) are designed to fit 1/2 oz. SCC needle bottles perfectly. Lubrication is readily available when you need it and out-of-the-way when you don't.
C - Recessed tool holders (3) are designed to fit SCC tool handles. Tools are readily available when you need them and out-of-the-way when you don't.
D - Recessed small parts holders feature a concave design with smooth, rounded sides. Perfect for small fasteners and parts that you need to pick up with your fingers.
E - Slots let you place a chassis on the Pit Board, with the guide installed, in any of four (4) different orientations. Slots go all the way through the Pit Board to accomodate the deepest guides. Each slot is 1-1/2" long to accept extra long guide flags.
F - Axle holders (2) let you store up to two (2) 3/32" axles vertically. This also permits a wheel and/or gear to remain on the axle if desired (see accompanying picture).
G - Rectangular recesses for organizing parts make it easy to keep track of everything.
H - High-contrast yellow background makes it easy to keep track of the smallest parts.

Q) Can the SCC Pitboard be used with 1:32 and 1:24 slot cars?
A) While primarily designed for 1:32 slot cars, the SCC Pit Board can be used with many 1:24 slot cars as well. The pictures below show a 1:24 BRM Porsche 962C.
Q) Can the SCC Pit Board be used as a setup block?
A) No. While the main surface of the board is reasonably "flat", it does not provide the precision of a setup block.
Q) Can the SCC Pit Board be used to solder together chassis and other components?
A) Because the SCC Pit Board is made from plastic, it is not suitable for soldering chassis or any other soldering task that would subject the board to enough heat to melt/distort the plastic. Soldering or desoldering motor lead wires would not be a problem.
