Which would make a better race car 'out of the box' for vintage sports racing, to run on Scalextric Sport track, a Slot.it GT40 or MRRC Porsche 910 ?

hi Steve
I think you are asking about "apples and oranges"...these are two very different slot car philosophies. Perhaps you might want to describe your
racing desires more, what it is you look for in a "race" car...or else have a discussion on the relative merits of MRRC and SLot it. Both are
quite good IMO, and quite distinct.

with best regards,
John

PS if you simply want the faster machine, go with Slot it.

Slot.it hands down. They offer incredible flexibility in motor configuration, gears, wheels, tires, motors; whereas MRRC does not. With Slot.it you can tune your car to individual track conditions, which is what real racing cars do. Even if you are running box-stock w/ magnets, the Slot.it car will win out.

I want to say MRRC for the way that it will drive, but I can't. Slot.it is the way to go if you want fun racing

If running box stock on Scalextric sport track then I would say the MRRC. I have always found the MRRC cars to be very quick, particularly the porsche 910.

Thanks for all the input. Our uses Scalextric Sport track in digital format. We have a class called Vintage Sports which allows GT and sports cars from the '60s and '70s, no modifications allowed, except for the fitting of Slot.it 21,500 rpm motors in cars which have much slower motors, such as the Scaley GT40 which comes with an 18,000 rpm motor. The Slot.it GT40 , which comes standard with their 21,500 rpm motor, cannot therefore be modified. I note that the MRRC Porsche 910 comes with a 21,000 rpm'slim can' motor and looking at the photos of this car which make it appear quite small, the power/weight ratio should be favourable. Photos of the Sebring chassis fitted to this car also suggest that it is fitted with 2 magnets which should make the handling okay. I know that the Slot.it GT40 has far more potential if one is looking at further modifications but , in this class, no modifications are allowed. For the record, a variety of cars are raced in this class at present, from the previously mentioned GT40s from Slot.it and Scalextric, to several models of Revell-Monogram cars and others.
