Flyslot's #32 March 761B is modelled on one of the more obscure cars from the 1977 Grand Prix season, one that failed even to pre-qualify for the British Grand Prix. No doubt there were many reasons for its dismal performance, but I'm sure a loss of four of its eight cylinders wasn't one of them.

My 1/32 version looks a bit sparse in the exhaust department, as you can see below. Is this Flyslot's cost cutting or an error during manufacture? Does anyone else have one of these to confirm whether the absence of exhausts is unique to mine or affects the whole production run? If mine's faulty, I'll return it for replacement, but it would be helpful first to know how widespread the fault is.

Any help will be appreciated.

Hey Dopamine

I have 2 of these and both have 4 pipes either side of the engine, looks like you're mising 2 either side..

Have you ran yours on a track, ran one of mine and they aren't very good.
Tyres are useless, but a very nice model...

Thanks, I'll send it back. Just to confirm, is that two of this particular livery? I've four Marchs made when Flyslot were Fly and they all have a full compliment of exhausts too, but I wondered if this was a Flyslot cost cutting exercise.

I've not used this one, but I've used and raced my others a lot. On Scalextric Classic without magnets and with only the lightest of sanding of the tyres, they're very good; smooth, well balanced, good fun. They're one of Fly's best performing out-of-the-box models in my view, because almost every other Fly car I have (100+) has needed some degree of work to make it run well. Maybe you have a bad set of tyres?
