News from Slot.it of a new Nissan R390 GT1 livery and new parts.

Nissan R390 GT1 - n.31 Le Mans 1998
Drivers: J.Lammers, E.Comas, A.Montermini
Code: CA14e

Official selling date: August the 7th.

The Nissan R390 GT1 was a racing car built to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1997 and 1998; it was developed by Nismo and Tom Walkinshaw Racing.
The 1997 model was modified for the 1998 race to generate more downforce, thanks to a longer tail. All four Nissan R390 GT1 finished the race, in 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 10th position.

Tony Southgate, chief designer of the R390, commented that this was not the fastest GT1, but rather the most reliable.
The car featured a carbon monocoque chassis. The braking system was equipped with ABS.
As the Nissan was racing with a minimum weight of 1000 kg, it could use an air restrictor with a diameter of 35mm. The engine was a twin turbo V8, with a displacement of 3496 cc. The gearbox featured an X-Trac carter, with Nissan-made gears.

For car number 31 Nissan chose 3 former Formula 1 drivers: Frenchman Erik Comas, Italian Andrea Montermini and Dutch Johannes Lammers. Car number 31 finished 6th.

And new parts.

Slot.it releases 3D printed chassis for Carrera DTM models

Slot.it, at the forefront of innovation in Slot Car technology, has begun to release 3D printed ('fabbed')
chassis and parts directly from the Shapeways site as of July 8th. The first chassis being offered to the
public are those for Carrera DTM cars (Audi A5, BMW, Mercedes C-Klasse).

Each chassis name comes with either a STD or SSD suffix: this is because if you
plan racing with digital systems there are two types of chassis you can choose from.

• oXigen, SSD with Slot.it SP15chip, Ninco or Carrera digital: this chassis comes with holes for
oXigen or Carrera LEDs, and is easily fitted with either chip, or Ninco. If you plan on using
Carrera digital, we strongly recommend to purchase the D132 adapter, which makes installation
of Carrera D132 chip easy

• SSD with Hornby Quick fit SSD chip: as you can see from the rectangular hole in the front
section of the chassis, this is ready for a Hornby quick fit SSD chip. If you plan to use the chip
later, you can also order the corresponding SSD lid.

The only plastic type available is polyamid resin (nylon) but there are six different variations to choose
Unpolished: white (cheapest), black (most expensive).
Polished: white, royal blue, violet purple, hot pink, coral red, orange, green, yellow, all at the
same price.

We expect to release more chassis and specialized items later in 2014.

These chassis were designed according to the design rules for this specific technology, sacrificing some
edge sharpness and replacing the Slot.it complex logo with a simpler 'Slot.it' writing. The 'LMP' type
guide holder is used, as it's the one giving the best resistance to crash and tear forces, being anchored to
front and rear part of the chassis.

SLS 3D process isn't 'perfect', as there's an intrinsic tolerance on dimensions of +/-0.15mm. This
cannot be controlled by design, as it comes from the machines used to make the part themselves. In
practice, you sometimes may have to occasionally use some sandpaper and file to match parts perfectly.
In most cases, from experience we didn't have to perform any changes to the 3D printed parts in order
to match them to our standard Slot.it parts or Carrera bodies.

Any of the Slot.it motor pods may be used with these chassis, but due to the diameter of the wheels, we
recommend using either angled or inline 1.0mm offset units, and front and rear 17.3mm wheels.

To order, please go to http://www.shapeways.com/shops/SlotIt
