DSCF - stands for "Deutsches SlotCar-Forum" - A large and busy forum with a long history.
They have a habit of producing a special car for their members every year, with this years offering taking the shape of the Volvo S60 in a choice of two liveries from these races….

24hr Nürburgring 2002


BFGoodrich Langstreckenmeisterschaft VLN Nürburgring Nordschleife


An unusual car, with growing race pedigree and a welcome addition to any stable

Sitting on a Ninco BMW chassis, with Ninco Mercedes DTM wheels and a custom interior, the car looks good on the track even unpainted.


The height and scale dimensions are correct, as is the 'far back in the cab' position of the driver. The resin shell needs little trimming and is crisp and clean.


When running it is noticeable very early on that with everything tightened down to match the BMW M3 body designed for the chassis, the Volvo is top heavy due to the resin construction.
After a quick trip into the pits and some playing with the screws to give play in the body, we placed it on the track again.


Now it is getting there, smooth into the corners and matching the BMW in performance. It is clear that this car needs basic tuning skills but then anyone buying the kit will be into building and tuning anyway and the chassis it sits on is a well proved, solid option.


The kit is available painted or unpainted, it comes complete with decals, photo etched parts and everything required, parts wise, to get it running on a track.

Ordering details can be found here

It is in German but our own 'thomas' will, I am sure, be willing to help you should you require it.

I look forward to mine arriving and to finishing and preparing it for the track.

Worth pointing out in advance of the rush of Orders - it is a Rule you agree to when ordering, that you can't sell the car immediately on sites like Ebay.
These cars are made for entheusiasts, by entheusiasts. They are not made simply so people can try to make a fast buck.

Thomas I will try and get over with my trusty camera, will phone first.

WOW!

Look at the internal detail on that kit! now that is going to take SOME building!


Did I qualify for a poster? will look good on the wall of the track shop!

PS: apologies for not phoning last night, hectic times again with a work call out and a bloody hole in my exhaust manifold to get sorted.

It should be a Warranty job hopefully because the list price here for that manifold is 2563.00 Swiss francs!!!!!
