How many youngsters will see that model of photos of it? I would be more concerned about the amount of smoking that has reappeared in TV programs and the amount of pictures the press seem to use of celebs smoking.
Im more concerned about the “reggaeton” music, the vids and lyrics that youngsters listen to nowdays, rubbish!

Bet that's just what your parents said about your music tastes 😄

A while ago, I showed the 1/24th Otaki TR250, it is quite hard to find, this is the very same body, a slightly easier way of adding one to your scuderia.

I won't mention the soldering, or the fact it's not quite straight, just that it uses Scalex rear wheels and a 60K rpm Riko motor. them wheels won't last 2 laps.

60k motor? When I see motors like this I wonder why the rpm of the modern motors is lower, is it because of the size of the tracks? The actual torque of them ? The energy consumption?

I mean the Shark 22 and the King 25 have already enough power in almost all the clubs I have raced, I can’t imagine runing a 60k motor!

Cheers

Many vintage cars like that one were run on big "raceway" style tracks, the period magazines were full of superquick motors etc... Many people built car to match what they thought was the "best" even though, as in this case it was completely unsuitable for their use.
I race a lot of vintage cars, and I find that anything above 45K just overwhelms the tyres (we don't use goop).

Another couple of books worth tracking down.
This one has a lots of facts about the cars, but the pictures are B/W (good 3 view plans in there too)

As I've spent most of the day updating my website I thought I might as well post some more photos..

A Dino 206 S 1/24th scale, I know nothing about this car as it was passed on to me a month or so ago by a fellow club member, so I take no reasonability for the deep sea diver 😁

Guys, thanks for posting stuff(y) it does feel a bit lonely here at times.

Here's my 12 year old street Carrera Ferrari 458. Looks to be in perfect condition (outside of the mirrors being rather loose). My the driver has big... hands. :)
For my 60th, my daughter gifted me a Ferrari day, the 458 was an amazing car to drive, a great gift !
