These look excellent Russell. Any idea about the running gear, chassis used?.

The steering front wheels look interesting.

Do you know if this is the first of a series?, as a grid of scale Can-Am cars at a fair price, in 1/32nd Scale would, I'm sure sell very well.

Is anyone in the UK going to stock these cars?.

Regards

Alan

QUOTE (bastumannen @ 24 Aug 2004, 12:53)Looking good!
Now I'm glad I've withstood the temptation of buying those overscaled VanquishMG cars!
. Very keen to see a review of them though, or at least a chassis pic.
Yeah, me too. I think they look great. VMG´s look great too, but the off-scale puts me off

Lets have a review of these babies fast

I checked out one of these cars at sunday's racing at the Professor's. It was a good runner right out of the box!
The company is based in California and is known for their H.O. scale trains. This is their first foray into slot cars. I was told that they try to keep proper scale down to the height of the drivers! This is a a car driven by Dan Gurney, so being a tall guy, the driver in the car is actually taller! The car was pretty well detailed save a bit of roughness on the number as it bends under the body. Drive is sidewinder and pretty quick on the Professor's routed track. The guide is hooked by tie-rods to the front end for the steering and seemed to work well. Took a few decent crashes, too, and didn't break. To me that would be the weak point but it held. They are a bit on the steep side of price (near Fly) and I wonder about spares, especially the front end and guide. Overall a good first effort in a competitive field.
Cheers!

Sorry, Andy was unable to attend. Accepting the beer in his honor, is ME!





I do need to get a few of those, as my scratchbuilt project, hasn't gotten beyond the armchair.

Now if I can just get my Alfa T33 built before Fly!

Looks very good, and the inside is kept very simple (lot of place for weights....); so the ultimative question is: will they produce further CAN-AM slotcars ?????
