New Aussie Scalextric Releases

04 Dec 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
Some exciting news for those Ford Fans and Aussie Touring Car fans. Some pictures below of four of the new releases.

The first of the XY Falcons to be released is the Bathurst 1972 John Goss Falcon. Some quick laps shows it to run pretty well considering its narrow footprint and tallish body. I will complete a proper review next weekend.

The second much anticipated car is the Moffat XC Cobra from Bathurst 1978. Thankfully it has the original chassis used in the XB Falcons and not the inline from the Mad Max car so we get the full interior. A notable improvement from the XB's is they have finally set the rear axle correctly so the wheels fill the guards well. Interesting that they added the Camel Filters sign to the front bumper too.

No3 is the new Dick Johnson John Bowe Ford Sierra. In my opinion this is one of the best looking representations I have seen in a long time, it looks truely stunning.

No 4 is the Jim Richards JPS BMW M3. This is also a beautiful looking car and very well done. It does show how out of scale the Flyslot M3 is too as I have their version of the Richards car.

Sideways Ford Mustang Turbo Gtp 1982

02 Aug 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
Another new model, this time from Sideways is the Ford Mustang Turbo GTP 1982. There are actually two of these that have been released together, the other a 1981 version which is really just a different livery overall. As is usual these are very well put together and beautifully detailed. They will go well alongside all the other Group 5 cars Sideways has been releasing over the last few years.

Slot.it Alfa Romeo 155 V6

02 Aug 2016

Posted by Vinno In: Front Page News
A little late putting this up but it is well worth mentioning that Slot.it have released their first sedan in the Alfa Romeo 155 V6 DTM car. In typical Slot.it fashion it is a very good representation of the real car and also great out of the box. I will attempt to have a bit more in depth look at the car in the next week or so.
