Too slow, SCX bought out sets last year that used lego

Have to put this one on the shopping list, with the amount of Cars Lego/Police Lego etc that my kids play with all the time they will love to be able to build their own cars and give them a run on the track, nothing like a slot car that can take a good spill and cause no damage.

I seriously doubt that Scaley's Mk 2 Escort will run as hard as the one by SCX.

 

Also it seems that they are taking most of their new ideas for the bigger cars from RMS Resins and Carrera.

 

I hope that the Daytona is not a travesty like their Charger 500 with the tunnelback window and recessed grille.

They're not the prettiest Caterhams that they've done livery wise. In fact, rather lacking in imagination really. Should we say cheap? Only production wise, I know they'll finish up a pretty penny. Caterhams seem to get snapped up quickly for some reason.

Are these any good sans mag? Have no experience with them whatsoever but like Gazza said, good host class.

Well... I have one that I have worked on that runs OK. Got to be really careful with it through corners, but it's ok. And one that HL has worked on which is an absolute shocker to drive,

 

They are front motored. Maybe middle is more correct. And there is not a lot of room in there

Great choice of livery with the V8 Supercars.

 

Can anyone shead some light on the "Red Bull" sponsorship? Does carrera have exculsive rights to it like they have with Ferrari?

I will be buying one of those sets for the collection for sure,....................BUT I'm a little suprised with the liveries that they have choosen . I was expecting a new livery on one of the cars that you could only get by buying a set, a bit like what they did with one of last years V8 Supercars sets ,with the 888 Lowndes commodore. Oh well ,maybe next time.

 

I wonder why they didnt use Moffats 1975 car to go with that 1975 torrie? The red & gold XB is a thing of beauty,
