But which one are you going to take home? Tricky.


Just so folk are not confused these cars do not have lights as standard.

Is it a bit of artistic licence Nuro or have you fitted a light kit?

Yes, it is a bit of artistic licence. Done with Photoshop. I'll add the lights one day though (with brakes).

I'll tell you something about these cars, they're both very fast!

But... the Ferrari, when the magnets loose it, the car flies off the track. The Lambo has yet to come off, and is therefore the winner.

lol, lambo the winner! you got that right!

er just to say, dont go rushing into a light job on the Murcie as Kelvin Light actually produce a light kit that fits the murcie as it was developed for the car in particular!

Overdrive would be my first port of call for the Enzo though!

Guys,

I'm thinking about getting one of those Overdrive light kits? What can you tell me about them before I run up to Rohnert Park to buy one?

Take a look here: Resources section. Swissracer did 3 articles on them.

Int'

Do you have more details on the Kelvin Light system designed specifically for the Lamborghini ?

I admit I am biased but Overdrive offer alot more variance and adapability than Kelvin Light for around the same price.

Dennis both Kelvin Light and Overdrive do excellent light Kits but if you want the ability to include exhaust flames or interior lights, add extra front lights, use 'classic' pre Xenon style colour front lights for the older cars, different size and shape LEDs to suit your individual project - then Overdrive HAS to be the way to go.

Functionality, size, consistency and duration of the lights has increased ten fold in the last year or so.

Here is a picture of the electronics for the Overdrive 'Permenant Light Kit with Additional brake lights' as size check ( part number XB2 )...



A rear lights set specifically for the Enzo is being looked at - more later.

That light kit looks neat.


Looks as though they worked together on the design.

Where can one get them?

I am pretty sure the Lambo lights from Kelvin light never saw the light of day (excuse the pun), in fact I think Kelvin Light kits are pretty much impossible to find these days, but I could be wrong.

The special back lights for the Enzo are proving very hard to sort out due to the nature of their design, more when I know it.

I was recently in the fortunate position to compare the Proteus and the Auto art mucelaginouses
over at my usual slot emporium, Pendleslot. A hard choice indeed!! I bought the Aa version.
The Proteus has slick tyres which appear to be softer than the Aa which has treaded tyres. The Aa version has 4wd the Proteus does not. The Aa has better interior detail but no driver, slightly better looking wheels (raging bull emblem in centre) and finer (smaller) 6 litre labels on the flanks of the car. However the engine hatch is just a solid moulding whereas on the Proteus you can see into the cockpit. Interestingly, the Aa narrows towards the front of the car whereas the Proteus stays more or less the same width. The Proteus has better exhausts (slash cut) - the Aa version just has the ends perpendicular to the pipes. The yellow finish of the Aa car is superior to the Proteus. Finally, the Aa car has lights, "xenon" effect fronts, rears are just tail lights, no brake lights.

Transmission-wise, the Aa car has a beautiful mesh (inline motor with a propshaft going to the FRONT).

The subjective comments are IMHO, but young Mr. Hirst who was assisting me at the time agreed with them.

I will still buy a Proteus one, but the silvery blue one and not the yellow one.

That's interesting Mark. Sounds like the AA might look better on the shelf.

I must say that the Proteus Murci is the fastest car in my collection (with Mag) on my track. It has fantastic braking and sounds and looks great when doing so. Those tyres really help it grip the track, by they are prone to slight cracking.

I am really looking forward to future Proteus cars - if they get around to making them...
