The pictures from Dyson's and Intersport's MG Lola can be seen on MRE's site (future cars).

Regarding the Dyson Lola, it's the number 16 that is on show (some people would have preferred the number 20 ... Scalextric could have done both ...).

Sadly enough, the driver's helmets are not decorated.

How come both Scalextric and Fly come out with a Lola with the same livery at exactly the same time
(sure they're not the same car, but all the same...)

"Banana Joe" in question.

Scalextric:


Fly:

I sense another road test duel may be on the way. Those of us who have the Scalextric MG Lola know it is Scaleys finest performer. How do the Fly Lola's compare?

If it is anything like the first couple of Fly ones, it will thrash the Scaley Lola into the dirt, box stock.

However, I have been wrong before so let get battle commencing shall we?


Won't be tonight though as I am off to annoy the pants off my Swiss racing compatriots by giving them a damn good thrashing with me Fly GT40

In standard form the Fly Lola is much superior to the Scalextric MG Lola mainly due to lighter weight and lower motor and magnet position. Also some of the Fly Lolas have very fast Mabuchi S motors fitted.
The Scalextric car is more competetive if fitted with a faster motor such as a Slot.It V12.
The MG is the better car of the two without a magnet.

Interested to see 250 GTO's comments on the relative merits of the Fly and Hornby Lolas sans magnut. Care to expand a little?

Jexy1 chose a class last year on Liphook's wood/ copper tape setup that consisted of GT1/LMP cars, but exclusively Hornby products, i.e. 911 GT1, Merc CLK, Caddilac and Lola and the latter proved to be a serial de-slotter with the Porsche usually victorious.

I have to admit that I have only run the Fly Lola in magnet form on Farnham's Ninco circuit and agree with Swiss that it whooped the Hornby's sorry behind with ease. And as the Fly is a classic inline chassised car I would assume it would perform better when run without the aid of traction mags. Front/rear balance and all!

Cheers Mr.M

QUOTE whooped the Hornby's sorry behind with ease

All that happened was I crashed a couple of times while catching up after giving you rather too generous a lead to make things look interesting and you start name calling. And my behind may be large but it isn't saggy.

p.s. For those that don't know he'd beat me even in an lesser car, but based on a blast around the track in the now very cold garage I can confirm that the Fly Lola is the Daddy with the Hornby a close second. The Spirit is quite good - with the Fly rear axle fitted.
