Hi

Here the result of a project that i started a few weeks ago

All started with a body that I took over from a collegue driver

than I had to find the correct decals and ended finally with 3 sheets. 1 for a TeamSlot Escort Mampe and than I bought another one and received finally another sheet due to the good service of slot stop.de

Used the rear wing from a donor Capri because the carbon boord I did not like













Raced on Friday with the Escort for the first time and finished 4 th. Not enough flex but this will be solved next race

Hi Steve,

Escort or Opel ?

I cannot understand that the Opel is on sale because of the poor condition of the body.

Nevertheless I love the Goup 5 cars I will not buy another body of ..... you know the brand

Hi Stoner

the body and decals you can find at http://www.slot-stop.de/ and ditech

But be warned the condition of most bodies is very poor. The Escort seems to be an exception. Decals are not sealed so you have to watch out and spray a clear coat before using for the rest its ok

I still have a sheet available and the front I have on Jpeg 7,50 euro + shipping (already sealed)

The weels that I used are in front slot it + the insert from the slot it group C (can be bought from slot it)
In the rear i used the hubs from the Capri removed the fly insert and changed it by the slot it. Only to have a big rear wheel like the original car. This car doesnt have to run fast because of the 13 second rule

Below is my other Escort Team slot modified with slot it gears and wheels with the same inserts (except the rear). Raced and won with it but in the battles lost some bits and pieces



Good luck if you want to start this project and keep us informed
