Mark Winterbottom and Steven Ridhards along with the Will Davidson and Russell Ingall car are nearly due as far as I know.

 

Armchair has them listed as FGs'. Thunderbird has them listed as BAs' ??

The Ford's normally come last Jason! Expect them to hit the shelves after (?!!!) Christmas, at least to my knowledge...

Bit of a shame that.... however buying the sets you could acquire early:

 

Winterbottom

Will Davidson.

Stephen Richards

Craig Lowndes

 

It's rather interesting that the V8 Thunder set which apparently has Richard and Lowndes included, has the main picture on the box with Whincup and Tander. Lowndes is in the background #888 and I can't even see Richard FPR car.

I spoke to Southern Model Supplies in SA regarding if Scalextric are going to release the 888 Lowndes Vodafone VE Commodore separately and to date they cannot confirm if they are or not so at the moment we have to buy the Thundering V8's set to get one! I also asked if it had a product number and i couldnt even be told that either...so for the moment its a special release... By the way im getting one in 20 mins....so i will post some pics on my website :-) http://www.scalextricv8supercars.com

They still haven't fixed the front wheels on the Holden's yet. They stick out of the wheel guards by a mile. On the plus side a purchased a set as well today.

The Thundering V8 sets recommended retail are $329....some places will do it for $299... ........Honestly it seems like alot but if you had to buy everything individually there is over $500 worth of gear in the box......Ok lets say you just wanted the cars and track and not the power supply, controllers etc you still are in front by a mile!!!! Here are the sums if you just added the cars and track pieces only:

 

c8295 elevated crossover 1 x $25=$25,

c8200 qtr straight 1 x $11=$11,

c8203 cross over 2 x $26=$52,

c8207 half straight 4x $6=$24,

c8206 R2 curve 16x $6.5=$ 104,

c8205 straight 9x 6.5= 58.5

cars 2 x$60= $120

 

a total of $394.50

 

I havent even included the power supply, controllers, border sections, barriers etc.

 

I guess not everyone want the track pieces either but there is always a friend who wants more track or if not sell it on Ebay! I wouldnt mind more straights :-) Let me know if like to sell the staights!!

 

Cheers

There were alot of sets split for the very first Supercars sets a few years back with Ambrose AU & Ingalls VX. Same thing, sets were released before the cars.Worked a treat for members that only wanted the track , as the cars sold very easly and wise versa. Very smart marketing form scalextric only having the Lowndes car in the sets. Not so good for people only wanting the Bathurst winning car as Im sure this car will sell unboxed for more than the others later released box. I wouldnt be suprised if a few shops split the sets again with the lowndes car. THe Ambrose and Ingall car were selling for $75 each from the shops that did split the sets before they were selling individually.
