NEW AND GOOD NEWS
To the people at Slotforum.com

A couple of months ago, in the Spanish forum, Slotadictos, we ordered TeamSlot to manufacture for us a Special Edition of Carlos Sainz's Ford Escort WRC in cast resin.
We finally succeeded and We got our goal. The whole project was a complete success.
Now I've been thinking about and suggested Team Slot to manufacture a Toledo GT like this:




But instead of cast Resin, make it with injected plastic.

THIS IS THE CONDITIONS FROM TEAM SLOT

- As MIN. 5000 units
- Decoracion exclusive for these units
- Unit Price: 26€ + 16% VAT = 30.16 € but fact badly the accounts
- Payment: 50% when be done the asked and 50% to the delivery
- The Team Slot the right is reserved to do the same model during 1 or but years, but with decoracion different and to include it his catalogue

Seeing this which are the good news:
- Alone are 5000 units the ones that tendriamos that to ask.. That continue being many but is the half less
- The decoracion of the exclusive serious cars for these 5000 units
- The price of each car a great deal but cheap that in stores..


Please, be so kind to tell this to your friends, team and club mates who like slot because the more we were, the faster would run this project.

This is the real car:





By now, in the Spanish forum we have ordered almost 100 units (Only in one day)

Herewith is the link to the original post:

Interesting!!
Might make for some cool proxy racing as well. Price is on the steep side...do we get them in livery at that figure? Ive never seen a Teamslot car before Europe only?

Sounds good to me, I would definitely be interested in one resin or plastic. By the way isn't that a Ibiza in amongst the real shots (the 2nd image)?

Cheers

I do not understand this suggestion.


But I think that 10 000 is definitively steep - this number would be expected to be significantly lower if the company could make cars from the mold additionally of the pre-order.... Otherwise it seems a bit qestionable - to ask for a pre-order of 10 000 and then still keep the right to make any number of follow ups is not reasonable in my eyes. That would be a rip-of. Either you would expect a company to accept to 'tailormade' to an order where the 'mould' is 'owned' by the 'customer' (or representative) then it is reasonable to set such a high 'minimum' order OR else when a company wants to keep the 'mould' and right to produce cars thereof in a future would be expected to set a much lower minimum.

I cannot see why the proposal as it stands would be reasonable - it seems to be as if the company wants to 'eat the cake and keep it' at the same time. Normally you would expect to find alternative suppliers under those conditions...

... to bad because I would have appreciated a couple of those toledos... currently though I think that either something got lost in the translation or I do seriously believe that there is a need for a re-negotiation somewhere...

Something has changed this morning in the spanish Forum as Teamslot boys have decides that the minimum quantity is not 10.000 units anymore, from now on, the new goal is 5.000 (I think much more reasonable...) and price will be around 27EUR+costs (VAT, Postages...) so it seems to be that Teamslot mates speak English...do they, Peter? (just kiddin')


So good news,
and, yes, the second photo is an Ibiza!!!

Cheers,

Count me in, but 5,000 seems a lot to reach.

I don't think the middle picture is an Ibiza. I think it's a Leon super tourer (like the one raced in France) though I could be wrong ...

QUOTE (lotus03 @ 2 Jun 2004, 15:48)I forgot to ask:

Will it have an interior?

Will it have a wing?

What's the deal with chassis?
Has it got one?
What will it fit?
Or is it for scratchbuilders only?

Cheers,

Lotus

The car is fabricatec complet, with his chasis, neumatics, all...
Thanks...

I personally like that car.
But, with great respect, I would suggest that it might be a little too far from mainstream appeal to attract the numbers required.
