I think that it is well worth a look when it arrives. It might be really good fun. Can't really say much more than that. Its friday afternoon and I'm already guilty of typing absolute rubbish in another thread, so I'm gonna leave it at that!
i don't know for the scalex, the scx, or the carrera, but i tryed several times the Davic one, and it's fantastic!
Don't forget that when we where young, we loved TCR and Carrera Servo... it was not very good, but it was very funy : Davic have no interest for one or two player track, but when you have a big track, and 30 pilots, it's very pleasant to race with 14 other pilots, and the digital is the only way to do tis
I've tried the Scalextric prototype, The Carrera and the SCX. All are fun. It changes the aspect of racing. I'm looking forward to the real thing. I'm sure there will be systems better than others though. Lets wait and see.
I'll give it a look, might be cool. Another flavor of racing fun can't be bad thing. Maybe it will become so popular that normal cars that I've been drooling for will be sold off at fire-sale prices? (I can dream). Other than that, it can't be as bad as watching my Carerra cars do a slow-speed rollover in a wide sweeper at parade speed!
Not naming a particular brand, I want it. I imagine event solo zipping around and having a choice of path to take. Even with a few "drones" banging around I would be great to "drive" amongst such a scene.
I always drive different lanes. Now I just move the car to a different slot then replug the controller. This will save me a step and keep me and others from worrying about what lane the thing goes in.
Having the ability to hand a 5th buddy a controller instead of having him stand around and watch (even if this is rare) actually race will be cool. I expect to consider it a whole new experience seeing good points to both (classic vs. MCPL).
