It's Huracan Season Again

29 Mar 2018

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
If you hate fantasy liveries - look away now. For the rest of you, serious eye candy follows. The Sideways Lambo in flat black "Carbon Fibre" livery
Said to be available from late April in our part of the world.

They have fitted, for better or worse, their more powerful Raptor motor to these - rated 21,400rpm, 350gcm @12vdc, for 18.8 watts power
instead of the "Baby Raptor" motor that they fitted to the other three models - rated 17,000rpm, 245gcm @12vdc, for 9.8 watts power
That's a pretty massive margin of difference - 25% more rpm, but 90% more actual power.

Gearing is the same, so the torque will be massive. With high gripping tyres, I think you may need chassis and pod upgrades to "Hard"

It comes with a Key ring, so next time you park your Toyota Yaris outside your mate's, you can wander inside; throw these on the table; wait for the
green then go into denial when they look out the window.

The surface finish looks stunning - in the shot below you can see that carbon fibre texture effect.

When Yardley Came To Town

15 Mar 2018

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
It has been two years since S.R.C. announced they were to make the McLaren M23 F1 car in Yardley livery.
But by golly, now it is finally here, the fit and finish, and the drive train do look pretty good. Production just 1,000 units

Best bit for kiwis is, it's a "Bear" livery.

They have altered their mechanics from the Fly-style angle offset used in their Ferrari T4 and Renault F1 cars.

Yes, those front wheels do turn - in previous SRC F1 cars, the turning has not been especially precise, we will have to wait report of
how well the front end drives.

It all looks pretty special to me. You will need deep pockets though, at 80 plus quid from the pom-shops and $149 from Australian shops
It might be gracing more shelf-queen displays than F1 class races at clubs. Even underneath detail is very good.

Looking forward to getting my sticky little paws on this one. At 1973 it is between 1 and 3 years younger than the Policar releases.
I imagine people will run them side by side for period F1 racing.

It looks better detailed than the pictures I have seen of Scalextric release. Anyone out there with both examples?

Scalextric Allan Moffat Xw Bathurst Winning Falcon

30 Jul 2017

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
Scalextric slipped another couple of Aussie Cars in recently and the Moffat XW is one of those highly anticipated models. One thing I don't understand with Scalextric is why they don't make these types of cars special editions after all it was Moffat's first win and something they could make a bit of a deal about. The car is pretty well represented and looks great on the track, a little better than the Goss car. It may be the chin spoiler and the rear exhaust which gives the rear a bit more depth. It isn't perfect but it is a very nice model all the same and I for one am enjoying the in line engine configuration Scaley are using now.

New Aussie Scalextric Releases June 2017

18 Jun 2017

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
It's been a while since the last Aussie cars and thankfully they are still coming from Scalextric. The latest ones from the Aussie scene are the 1988 Bathurst Winning Tony Longhurst Thomas Mezera Ford Sierra in B & H colours and the Moffat Federation XC. As has been the case for the Moffat Cars we still have not seen a Bathurst winner so hopefully that is coming at some stage. Either way these two are great models and will look great in the collection or bashing around the track.
Longhurst Ford Sierra.

New Aussie Scalextric Releases

04 Dec 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
Some exciting news for those Ford Fans and Aussie Touring Car fans. Some pictures below of four of the new releases.

The first of the XY Falcons to be released is the Bathurst 1972 John Goss Falcon. Some quick laps shows it to run pretty well considering its narrow footprint and tallish body. I will complete a proper review next weekend.

The second much anticipated car is the Moffat XC Cobra from Bathurst 1978. Thankfully it has the original chassis used in the XB Falcons and not the inline from the Mad Max car so we get the full interior. A notable improvement from the XB's is they have finally set the rear axle correctly so the wheels fill the guards well. Interesting that they added the Camel Filters sign to the front bumper too.

No3 is the new Dick Johnson John Bowe Ford Sierra. In my opinion this is one of the best looking representations I have seen in a long time, it looks truely stunning.
Posted Image

No 4 is the Jim Richards JPS BMW M3. This is also a beautiful looking car and very well done. It does show how out of scale the Flyslot M3 is too as I have their version of the Richards car.
