Noticing the non existent selection of Ninco cars from the usual outlets and the lack of any proper cars on the Ninco web site, was wondering if they have left the slot car business?
Thanks for the information, I will have to look again because i love collecting rally cars.rekim, some people might complain that Ninco do too many rally cars! I run MaxiMegane's, Toyota Corolla's [all NC-1], Mitsubishi Evo/Citroen C4, Ford Focus [4WD speeder] and rally Porsche 997 as groups for my track. I'm especially fond of the NC-1 motored cars as their performance is less extreme and tend to tail-out if pushed too hard, they're a challenging car to get a quick lap-time. They define the slower is quicker motif as a smooth lap is often the quickest. They are also charmingly "retro" as late 90's released cars. The 4WD speeder cars are all super-fast and have a bit less feel in their driving, they thrash round at unrealistic speed with the mag left in. You should check them out if you don't have any of the Ninco's, most of the older cars come up [used] on ebay for little money. Most only need a decent service and they are like new. The NC-1 is a Mabuchi motor and replacements are easy to get.

But still falling far short of the handling that our Spanish brethren could conjure in their sleep. Slap a Ninco SEAT Cordoba WRC or an SCX Peugeot 908 down on any track surface and it will run in such a way that it puts a smile on your face. Scalextric cars can be improved with a bit of time but I wouldn't miss Carrera if they pulled up the tent pegs. Not for a minute.On the contrary, you might say that it's Carrera and Scalextric showing SCX and Ninco how to do it. By being in business.
