Yep i agree , these are going to be great, Racer detail and Slotit performance, at a fraction of the price..

 

I'm going to treat these like Noah did with the animal's 2 of each ;)

 

 

Um Dave . . they took 7 of the "clean animals" .... so you'd better start saving :lol::D

will have to start saving my pennies - (and more) hope they are still around when I have the $$ - that is always the concern for me - those 2 sweet looking SCX cars or one car - this one and the silver one look like must haves though....hmmm something will have to be sacrificed..

 

cheers

They have been available in Australia for a week now and it looks like another brand to give fantastic out of the box performance. They will suit the racer with some chassis adjustability and also the collector with Slot.it like detail and very high assembly quality.

I reckon they are well worth the $89. I put P6's on mine, added the magnetic suspension and removed the magnet and it's a great car to drive, and also very quick on the Carerra layout I ran it on, on a par with a similarly setup Slot.It McLaren.

What is the magnetic suspension?

 

They are two pretty sweet looking cars - and a must have for my collection..

This is magnetic suspension. It is a Slot.it part, and all the Slot.it retailers should carry it.

 

The mirrors are very vulnerable, lost one when a car spun in front of me and went over the nose of mine. The mesh grille at the front looks very crisp.

Hey

I have a friend that bought one of these He was trying to set it up for racing when he noticed that the frame was cracked

He only had a few laps on it. To say the least he was pissed.

Did it come like that or did it happen during testing???

Next from Racer will be the Fiat 642 Bartoletti transporter, just the thing to carry around $750 worth of cars (3)

This is the 682, it gives you a better idea

But that'll be ok because the transporter will cost between 600 & 650 euro (around $875) .... but it will run on the track

If I were a gazillionaire I'd probably collect Racer and Slot Classics, as well as the 1:1 renditions. The transporter will no doubt be a thing of beauty, but well outside the price range of this little black duck.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

I must admit, I kinda like the car carrier. It would make for one hell of a shelf queen with three cars on deck for the" racer" collector.

 

If only Racer did Ford GT40's ..............................

PS. With carrera's exclusive deal with Ferrari, how would this go with production as it still using the lienced brand?

Same question I asked myself, as according to the Nurburg reports Racer are planning to release some very sexy 512S, 275P, 312P and 250GTO Ferraris this year.
