However that HAS to be a new chassis right? I mean it is sooo low.
Looking forward to them alot! If the chassis is no better I weill sit it on an HRS from Slot.It.
BTW - So far I have removed 20 grams of waste plastic from the Enzo body and chassis in an attempt to make it lighter - 20 grams!! and that is just plastic that wasn't required. If I can do the same to this baby...
I think releasing the Black one first is a sales ploy. Being the first release, everybody will want one. Release the Red one's first means the black will not sell as much if it is the second or third livery in the series.
The 550/575 does has an un-nerving draw for me with 2 already in the collection - the Carreras (in red of course) will be added.
Like you Swiss I have a HRS chassis ready and waiting although I haven't thought about dremelling the weight out of the body. See if I can beat 20g with my Bentley
PS Note the Hot Wheels logo on the car - looks like Carrera/Hot Wheels have come to some form of licencing agreement, which means are American cousins can now sample the delights (hopefully) of the Carrera Ferrari range
recent carrera wheels have been like that - the disc brake is molded into the wheel, not a seperate part as on Fly, Scalextric, Proteus, etc etc. Personally, I don't think it looks good, I think holes and no disc brakes look better than this solution, clever though it is
Looks like a potentially great slotcar to me. Yes, the wheels look 'less' than most current manufacturers (and the side grills look cheap and cheerful) but Carrera may have come up with a competitive racer to others around at the moment IF that chassis is as low as it looks and it uses that great double-magnet set up that they've been fitting their cars with recently.
Does that box say front and rear lights? If so, that's a lot of car for what Carrera are costing these for.
