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.
