Comes back to the divide on what people get out of slot cars.. Bit of fun or hardcore racer..lol
There doesn't need to be a divide and for many of us there isn't. It's perfectly possible to get both in one package if you can recalibrate to cars that slide and don't travel at warp speed.Comes back to the divide on what people get out of slot cars.. Bit of fun or hardcore racer..lol
Ninco ProRace?Being such a big well known brand, it wouldnt take much to get back in the game.. but theyd need to be on a par with the likes of Slotit, NSR, Scaleauto, etc for me to folk out. ie theyd need to have a Slotit format motor pod, adjustable front axle, lighter bodies, 2.38 axles, etc..
Yep, Iv seen the parts.. Iv thought about buying some, their parts are good quality items, thier prorace Inline Crown Gears are well made possibly on par with Slotit ones.Ninco ProRace?
A failure., by and large. Check how many of their spares are on discount at PSR. Including 2.38 variants
I see a massive divide, those that tune, and those that don't. No one car can cater for both imo.There doesn't need to be a divide and for many of us there isn't. It's perfectly possible to get both in one package if you can recalibrate to cars that slide and don't travel at warp speed.
I really enjoy racing NSRs on wood with gooped tyres providing colossal levels of grip, but there's only so much variety one can get from that type of racing. It's certainly more akin to racing cars with magnets than it is to racing mag-free cars on standard untreated tyres on plastic, which is something I enjoy just as much.
I've organised some great race meetings using Ninco GT cars, fettled but close to standard. The common dislike of almost every driver is the damned racket Ninco cars make. Yes, they can be quietened a bit, but I've tired of the noise and these days race them far less frequently.
Would I buy them now if Ninco rose from the ashes? Probably not. Things have moved on in slotland and, with very few exceptions, my minimum requirement now is adjustable front axle height and round removable wheels.
I only have one thing to say on the matter..
If new rules stop Modified/Tuned cars, I'll be giving the sport up in a flash.
There's nothing more tedious for me than box std cars..
