Quoting their website.

NSR's objective is to make a Classic car using modern technology, so high tech ‘Ready To Race’. It needed to be competitive straight out the box.
The Porsche 908/3 is an innovative model with high tech components, highly performing on track still respecting the scale modellistic aspect."


So to translate their english translation, " We have made a car focused on going snot fast"

The first livery was as is so often the case across brands in the slot world - not going to win the beauty pageant

The second take; which has come along just a few weeks later is now here

All reports I have seen, say this is possibly their quickest classic sports model.

There are some changes to the mechanics which it is worth knowing in advance if you need to change any parts

Posted Image Posted Image

The pod is a little different - note the cut out at the back, in step with the convex forward protrusion on the chassis

A new axle bush with minimum contact area of lowest friction. The motor is the usually shark 20k with slightly angleset sidewinder

It will be very interesting to compare results alongside prior models when the NSR Classic is raced in Nelson, NZ injust a few days

Snot fast as it happens is very fast. On my track my white one is my quickest NSR classic. I'll be on the yellow one too shortly, because more than one of a good thing is a good thing, or good things, something like that.

I haven't put it up against the t70 coupe yet (forgot about it), and my spyder i can't dial the chatter out of. I'll try on Sunday when my mates are over.

The NSR 908 is very quick , the fastest of the NSR Classics . In a week the NSR Classic Challenge is being held in Nelson with 50 participants . This event will no doubt show just how good the 908 is . A Thunderslot shootout is also being held and results should show the Lola spyder is marginally faster ( based on racing to date ) . Keep an eye out for the results .

On my track on Friday night the Thunderslot Lola T70 coupe had a margin on the 908/3. No pod failures to speak of. My second 908/3 is enroute so we'll soon see what more usedoes to lap speed.
I tinkered on my t70 Spyder and it's more drivable than before, but still plenty of potential to unlock. It got hosed by both cars.
