Coming From Sideways

11 Nov 2019

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
The company went into hiding over the European summer - starting to wonder if Chris the owner has a secret life outside of Slot Cars . . . . . :lol: :D

But over the past few weeks he has sprung back into life.
Here's some eye candy coming our way.

Toyota Celica - same livery as was done by MRRC. This one may be a tad quicker out of the box

Scaleauto Track System - You heard it here first folks

22 May 2019

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
ScaleAuto have now announced the full specifications of their track system, including one item that surprised me - SIX Radii, with four being available for distribution shortly, then two further stages over the coming year. The prize for spotting the repeated typo is personal gratification, and the knowledge that English is probably your first language.

What you say, first Policar now this?

Well good I say, we now have two track systems under the management of dedicated hobby slotting companies. So this is all future-proofing for the hobby.

Here we have
a plastic track system from a dedicated hobbyist company which is suitable for both 1/32nd and 1/24th scale.
SIX radii means a very flexible design platform for club tracks.
With the sad decline in hand skills of the younger generation, we just don't have the future of hand built wood tracks we have been blessed with in the past.
They are offering the components in 4 units retail packing and 50 units bulk packing for club use - pricing is sharp, especially for the bulk pack product.

What Have We Here?

22 Feb 2019

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
I am very appreciative of Armchair Racer to give me the opportunity to be able to try out the new Policar track system. Over the weekend I will give my impression of the way the track drives with both the supplied BRZ and other cars.

Policar 330 P4 And 412P

27 Sep 2018

Posted by SlotsNZ In: Front Page News
This model was announced some time ago. Now we get a look at the first test shots in colour, and learn that two variants will be produced.

The 330 P4 and the 412P
These are obviously mock-ups, so they are not there to show quality, just the concept for final tweaking.

Given that they are appearing as the first new "Classics" mold under Policar, as opposed to the 312p which came across from a Slot.it mold,
we can pretty much assume they intend using these as one of their "set" car options next year.
