I've bought an Autoart Impreza with the idea of using it as a challenging rally car, I'm not looking for speed but something that will be a fun drive and a challenge, is this a good idea or have I wasted £15?
Finally got round to trying out the Impreza, first impression is that it's smaller than the Ninco or Scalextric Imprezas that I've got, beautifully finished and has skinny tyres, it also relatively heavy compared to those cars.
Magnet removed, first few laps, it's okay but has a tendency to understeer not helped by the guide being a lttle deep for Classic track.
I remove the self centreing prong from the guide and fluffed the braids up a bit, understeer is now largely cured but the guide still clicks on classic track, it really needs sanding down a little but I think I'll just let it wear down.
It's a good car that's challenging to drive, with concentration it's quicker than my SCX Evo, but it's easy to crash, the grip of the tyres is improving with use.
I'm very happy with the car for £15, it's never going to beat a Ninco Focus, but it is fun and challenging to drive, which is what I wanted from it.
