QUOTE think it is time that many of you started to realise that the manufacturers are there to produce what you want to buy, and they will listen IF you are constructive, but if continual slagging off is all they can expect then they will make what they like and not what you want. After all, just because the few that read this forum don't buy their car, whether it is a Fly, a Ninco or a Scalextric, do you think they are really worried? Slot car manufacturers are a BUSINESS, not a hobby, and they do not need your permission to make a slot car. However, they will play ball with you if you play ball with them.

They do market studies and have to consider licensing availability and associated costs and then manufacture what they think will sell. A good release is also one that they can get good mileage out of with dozens of different liveries. They do not produce what we want to buy. If that was the case Scaley we would have had a race partner for their GT40 by now, we still dont have a choice of classic F1's (well done Vanquish for at least getting the ball rolling) but what we do have are more 908's, 917's and GT40's than you can shake a Parma controller at.

"They will listen if you are constructive" "but if you slag them off they will make what they want" "they will play ball with you if you play ball with them"


They will listen to all types of feedback. I am sure they look just as closely at the negatives because they are the best guides to improving the business and they will never make what they want, they will always make what they think will sell.
