G'day Rossko,

 

Must say when I first saw these I was very interested, especially with the Aluminium chassis etc.

 

Like you say looks like an awesome bit of kit.

 

Hopefully they run as well as NSR, Slot.it etc for the price.

 

cheers

Thought the same John, seems like a few of the 'new' slot car makers are selling their cars above what most others are.

 

I'd love to get my hands on the new Falcon slot car, the Porsche 924 JPS, but at $150 I'll have to give it a miss.

 

cheers

I agree guys but I'll give it a try

It cost me $111.15 posted from PSR

So I'm hoping it's as quick as my race set up nsr cars....

I'll give my review once I get it on my track

They look pretty good value for what you get I may need one of these just to have one. Weight is 100 grams which is a good race weight assuming it doesn't need any added weight.

Very good value IMO, assuming the quality is good.

Aluminium chassis, bearings all round with metal rims, low profile fronts and grippy rear tyres.

Great to see a manufacturer catering directly for timber track racers.

As opposed to the flexible, magnet inspired crap chassis most manufacturers are supplying as standard issue.

They look fantastic...my only concern is the motor, which needs testing against it's peers. I have one on order to try out.

Regards

Matt - where are you? The Falcon Porsche should not cost that much...

 

 

Hi,

 

I was just looking at the price on Armchairs site for the JPS LTD ED.

Looks like the 'standard' Porsche 924 is $99.

But the JPS one does look the goods though.

 

cheers

Matt

Got mine tonight. First up - finish is good. Car is heavier than I thought but should be ok.

The motor mount was loose though - lost gear mesh when I turned the rears by hand. Easy to fix though. Turned a couple of laps - big slippery on my track but I'd say that will settle down.

I don't know. Think maybe to bring the front axle mounts inboard and onto the motor pod.

What did surprise me was how narrow the rears are. Remember, is a 3mm axle, and the rims look fabulous, so maybe not change them..

If you have a scaleauto reamer you can fit any rim but I think the rims will allow foam if I'm seeing correctly....

 

Wow that will be interesting front wheels with suspension feel wonder how the car will handle

Mmmmm

The slot.it foam tyres go straight on to the rims - sorry I didn't explain that above. I haven't change the wheels on my NSU and Simca just took the rubber off and put the foams on

And the motor I've seen two ratings for them ...

21.500&20.000

What's your thoughts tony ??

I've got no idea. Says 21k. Haven't tested it yet and I don't have a motor tester. Will play with it a bit perhaps next week.

As for the tyres, might true them like an NSR. That should do the trick..

My two arrived today. Lubricated only and both cars fantastic straight away. I highly recommend these guys if you're running on wood. Whilst heavy they are stable, predictable and on my track at least perfectly powerful. I suspect the style of performance Revo slot have achieved with BRM would lend itself to iroc style racing at both cave and club racing level. Much less can be said for my Falcon slot 924 rubbish but that's another story.

I read also that they are quite noisy. With this i agree, they certainly have their own note. I look forward to running them side by side as i've found the porsche shape in general often is problematic in close one make competition.

Awww jeeez don't say that, I have both on order, the Le Man is on its way as we type. I was a bit excited about that and the JPS.

Now not so much.

 

Glad to hear about the Revo Slot though.


Cheers Grant

I quite like the 'Chinglish' on the back of the Superflo #24;

 

'No tigers were harmed obtaining airjpes for this car!'

 

I assume an airjpes is a stripe right??

 

The 924 just sucks to set up is all, it's pretty and i've almost got it right, i just follow issue with issue. She'll get there
