Avant Slot - how do they compare?

In my brief and limited experience NSR & Slot.It seem to be the speed demon's weapon of choice and they seem to feature as the top two in inter-marque challenges.

I have only recently become aware of Avant Slot and was wondering if anybody can tell me how the Avant LMP cars stack up against similar cars from NSR & Slot.It.

How do they compare on fast routed tracks and how do they compare on twisty plastic circuits?

The reason I ask is that I have an opportunity to buy the Avant 2006 Le Mans winners set consisting of 2 Audis (the TDi's) and the Pescarola that split them at the finish. Brand new - £68 all in. I'm hoping they will be up there with my Slot.It Group C cars.

Or should I spend the same cash on just one NSR? (Don't own any NSR's at the moment).

Does anybody have first hand experience of how the marques stack up?

I would prefer Slot Its, have Avant Slot Audi R10 and Peugeot 908, have to replace standard tyres with Slot Its to get reasonable times on Scaley Sport. My other concern with Avant Slot is build quality, it seems at best ok and I wonder if the plastic is a bit thin on the body. I had 3 Avant Slot cars for Xmas, I have had to take 2 apart and tighten the grub screws on the gearing as was loose and the car wasn't moving and then lower the rear axle on the Subaru so doesn't rub on the body shell.

They are nice to look at but Slot Its are better.


PS sorry if im going on a bit
