I have been playing around with Slot Cars for a while. Most of my spend has been on cars that I love that specific model and not so much the performance of the car. The turn on cars for me have always been the Australian and American Muscle cars either off the shelf cars or buying bare bodies off some very talented people (you know who you are ). Most of the builds have been using HRS2 chassis which for me give me the flexibility it offers as well as "reasonable performance.
The plan is get involved in a club and have a play which I briefly did while living in Sydney. Now I'm retired up the coast I'm hoping to join a fairly active club here and now need to start looking at some cars. to join. Currently I have around 130 plus cars mostly Scalextric or Carrera or built because I like that model. Aside from a couple I don't have any shelf queens.
Over the last year or so I have tested the water and bought a few cars based on what I read here and elsewhere (thank you). Currently I have a Black Arrow GT3 , MrSlotcar 787B, NSR P68, GT40MkIV & Audi R18 and Slot.it Porsche 956, 962 & Nissan R90. I do have a Policar 412P Ferrari on order (been on order for ages). I don't have any Revo, Scaleauto, Thunderslot, Ninco, Sideways and so on. A friend for example has a few Scaleauto's and they look pretty trick but they don't seem too popular. Is there a rule of thumb for each of the brands as to who makes the best in a specific car category ie Can Am etc ? This is what I need to learn and being limited in funds not want to test the water too much.
