Do it Rob it works every time I bring a new slot car home and the wife starts to fire up I point her to this thread and say look honey it could be worse(mind you I neglect to tell here once I get a slot room/shed then the serious collecting starts) :) :(


Reality what a concept

The Highway32 cars you have - are they Imps?

Is it any good - I've been thinking of getting one, it was my first 1:1 car and our family owned several of them for many, many years.

Does it run reasonable, decent quality build etc?

 

Cheers

2 of them are Imps. The shells are quite well made. They didn't require much work before painting. The MRRC chassis they use is pretty ordinary though. I got the Imp coupe going well with a bit of tuning. The other worked ok until I added some elevations to my track. That made it almost undriveable. I wound up doing something I never thought I'd do and fitted it with a magnet. They've just launched a revised model though that uses a PCS32 chassis. I reckon that should perform significantly better. I'm itching to get my hands on one of those.

 

One of the problems with the old chassis was that you could only put extremely narrow wheels on them resulting in very little grip. The PCS32 lets you put some decent rubber on.

 

Here's my thread about them: http://www.auslot.com/forums/index.php?sho...mp;hl=highway32

Hi, my name is Yngwie and I have an addiction. This is my small but growing collection of cars. I only started this hobby this year so I have a fair bit of ground to make up. Anyway, thanks for all the tips and tricks I have received since joining this board I and a few mates are getting hooked!

1 SCX

11 Autoart

11 Fly (+ 2 racing trucks)
