Great to see the DS still has an RX motor!

And that Renault livery is the best yet!

Hmmm... so the DS3 and Fiesta have different motors?

Guess I'll just have to give them both a try! tongue.gif

I'm not confident about the motors info - the tech sheets issued in the past have had errors.

However here is a better pic of the DS3;

Hi Mudchukka

Missed out on the Fiesta, so scouring eBay for that one! The DS3 looks cracking, should make a great rally pair.

I recently purchased the 2008 Danni Sordo Citroen C4, and the wheels are very small in the arches, they look as though they could do with being another 2/3mm bigger in diameter. Has this been rectified with the DS3?

Ds3 looks nice but is spoiled by the Argentinian flag on the roof, not because it's Argentinian but because it doesn't really go with the rest of the livery. I know it represents an actual car, I just don't like it. Which version of the car will Scaley do?

Scalextric hasn't planned this car for 2012, but the BMW Mini WRC.

Carrera will release the Mini and the Citroen DS3.

Thanks Toni, will have to see which livery Carrera do, I've seen the Carrera go version and that looks better.

I'll be getting a DS3, along with the previously released Fiesta. I hope that now the BMW/Prodrive situation is resloved that SCX do at least one Mini to go with them. I really don't want to buy a Scalextric Mini WRC, I want to keep my WRCs SCX/Ninco if I can. Scalextric cars don't run well on my rally track. sad.gif
Best regards,

It look that Carrera will make the Ciroen DS3 WRC Van Merksteijn version.

I believe that a livery like this:

Also take a look at the page here in Slotforum about the Carrera's presentaion at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. There is a Rally Evolution Track Set with the Citroen DS3 of Loeb, the roof is without the Argetinean flag.
