I like the Jaguars. I can add a driver easily enough, but I would like to see a change in their choice of tire material. The tires on the Lamborghini Murcielago I bought just don't have any grip, they are closer to vinyl than rubber. That is my only complaint against Auto Art. I love everything else that they have done and look forward to what they have planned.
Looks like AutoArt need to make more cars that others don't already make as they are pushing themselves up against many manufacturers who simply make better slotcars than them at the moment. Still, I admire their enthusiasm. Some of these will go down well, I'm sure.
I am seriously tempted by the 'C' Type. I for one am glad they havn't included a driver. I much prefer to fit one of my own devising, Manufactureres mould them down to a price and invariably they look poor.
I'm glad it is so easy for you guys to add drivers, because I had real problems. It's a little tedious getting into the cockpit without removing wires, and finding civilian (non race ) drivers is tough. I put in the girls from the Fly convertible and they required a radical bodydectomy and many test fittings as the roof is very low on Italian exotics.
They look good, but what can I put in the next auto art street car, these figures don't grow on trees. I drew dark hair on the driver with the scarf on her head, so she is not an exact clone, but with a second 'vette convertible showing up because of irresistible price, I'm going to have to get creative or else build build a little genetic research company called "Clones R Us , Specializing in Young Women", to set by the side of the road.
As for all the vipers, bring them on . Sooner or later someone will build a roadster, when they run through everything else. I'm waiting.
