Hello everybody,

 

My name is Javier Alcaraz, I am founder partner of the company Black Arrow and it is my pleasure to introduce you this new brand, that it is born with the hopeful and determination to make the best slot products at prices within reach of everybody.

 

Black Arrow is a Spanish company that developes all its R&D and assembling in Spain. Due to the complexity and specialization of the... products, Black Arrow counts with more than 30 suppliers in 5 different countries, carrying out all the quality control and 100% of the assembling and adjustment of its models in its Spain facilities.

 

Black Arrow was born at the beginning of 2011, despite we were more than a year and a half planning and designing how the company should be. In all that time there have been necessary a lot of hours of work for allowing to accomplish each component, as all them have been entirely developed by us. Each part has been carefully studied for fulfilling the high quality requirements that more and more, enthusiasts demand to the slot products. Black Arrow did not want to miss this knowledge and has achieved that each single part fulfils with such demands.

 

Black Arrow’s goal is to offer 1/32 scale model cars of really high reproduction quality with first level performance on the track.

 

For getting that, first matter was to select the model to be reproduced. A model that would allow us to incorporate our technology without room limitations, which would have a spectacular appearance and with a great brand behind it. For that and after long negotiations, we got to sign an official license agreement with Aston Martin, for reproducing their prize-winning model DBR9 1/32 scale. We believe that the model has never been fairly reproduced by other brands , so this has been our little tribute to this great racing car.

 

Aesthetically speaking, the body has been designed starting from the original files provided by Aston Martin and adapted in order to make its production viable. Hundreds of hours behind the computer have allowed a really spectacular model without looking down on the dynamic side, as the completed body has a very low weight (+/- 19.50 gr) which can be yet reduced by changing the driver plate and glasses for polycarbonate ones (+/- 16.80 gr).

 

Concerning to the mechanical side and because starting from “zero”, we could freely design each component trying to improve what the market currently offers, and we really believe to have achieved it. Following we are detailing you the components that will be incorporated in our first model, the Black Arrow Aston Martin DBR9 1/32 scale:

 

- Chassis with “IN-FLEX” technology

- Low Friction conical pinion & gear

- 3/32 calibrated axles

- Lightened rear rims made in aluminum (1.05 gr)

- Lightened front rims made in Delrin (0.65 gr)

- APACHE motor: 28.500 rpm & 350 gr*cm @12V

- Titanium Torx head screws

- High grip rear tires

- “Zero” grip front tires

- Oxygen free copper wires made with ultra-flex silicone cover

- Spherical bronze bushings.

- Front & Rear springs for motor bed suspension

- High hardness steel screws (slave screws)

- Delrin washers for front axle wideness regulation

 

Possible adjustments:

- Body height

- Front axle position & displacement

- Rear suspension displacement

- Rear suspension springs load

- Front & Rear axles wideness

 

We also have some optional parts, by the moment we can offer you these items as “starters”

-Anodized aluminium rims

-55mm G.T. axles (Golden Treatment)

-34Z Gear

-14Z Pinion

 

All Black Arrow spare parts will be displayed in a transparent box, having a double task; in one hand it will protect the pats during handling & transportation, but on the other hand it will also allow you to have your parts well organized in your trips.

Looks good and I wish them the best, IMO they will need it in this market. Direct sales only from Europe? Way over powered for most tracks here so will need a motor change. price should be between Slot it and NSR. Think they might struggle in the present market.

The chassis looks very interesting.

If the finished model looks half as good as the CG version i'd be happy

 

Look's like Spain is going for a Slot Car led recovery, with yet another manufacturer from there.

 

But they are still not that confident as they are only offering sales via the web page, they will be relying on the local market for majority of their sales.

 

Still looks good, but as you said Phil over powered, over priced and over there

Bold move, perhaps there are elements in the design which may prove quite useful, good to see they are having a go. I think the Spanish may be looking to regain some slot ascendancy from the Italians as this looks like it is aimed to take on NSR and Slot.it Good luck to them, the design on the crown and pinion looks interesting, wonder if That will result in smoother mesh?

Interesting interview here http://www.slotcar-today.com/en/notices/2012/06/black-arrow-slot-2.0-578.php

 

He mentions they started with the original CAD files fom Aston Martin

 

Good Luck to Javier, the pre-production shots of the body look great and the chassis is intriguing, may be we will see a new name on he winners list soon!

Woo Hoo........Another slot manufactor to collect :lol:

 

Seriously though, that certainly looks like a well detailed model with an interesting engineered chassis set up. I wish Blackarrow all the best as I'd love to get my hands on that Aston..

It looks like a Mosler beater. If it is then they have a winner. I'd buy one. Spain needs to win more than football matches to compete with NSR and Slot.it though.

 

I hav no problem with them only selling through their website. It will mean they can keep their prices competitive and so long as they sell throughout the world, including Italy, I'm fine with that.

I think more about slot cars now than I did about sex when I was sixteen.

True Gary, so true. I have an Ulster, a DBR1, a DBR9, a Zagato, and probably several others on my collection. All are so beautiful.

I do believe it is website only. They have no dealers, that way they keep their prices down (hahahahahahahaha) and don't have to worry about paying commissions to anyone.
