Missing from Slot Racing?

So what cars do you think are missing from the slot racing world? Even more helpful, what cars do you think the manufacturers could make that would help THEM sell more & promote the hobby better?

In the US, I hear complaints from people in the "WOMP" world, and some of the less educated about the 1:32 "plastic" world retailers, talk about the lack of updated NASCAR liveries. NASCAR is a 'league' in which there are stronger driver/brand bonds than any other league or even sport. These rabid fans (not ALL are ********, just most!) are lethal when it comes to debating their favorites. Having Scalextric (or others) keep a continued update on cars, and expand their lineup would be amazing. The diecast industry for NASCAR is HUGE over here, and when it comes to "one off's" for special one race only liveries, the demand gets even stronger. There has been some great custom work done to replicate some current cars using some of the Scalextric plain white cars, but they could make a killing doing it themselves.

The other group that would be a huge hit in the US, especially with the younger crowd.. 8-18+, is the "Fast and the Furious" type cars. Either give them some great cars out of the box, or give them some basic cars, then sell add-on rims, exhaust, engine hop-ups, etc, just like in the real "street racing" scene. The money to be made on this market seems too much too pass up.

So what do you guys think?

What's that?

Is it a brick? Is it a giant bar of soap? NO! It's a rubbish car with a big engine in it that only turns left... Sounds interesting...

Nascar's are for people who don't really understand the concpet of motorsport, where driving talent is required. Not just 'foot to floor', 'turn left a bit' 'straighten out', 'turn left a bit'.... Ah! I've got to overtake! Oh well, doesn't matter because I have 30 foot either side of him to do it...

I always say each to there own - he might think your idea of motorsport is
a pile of crap but some people have the common decency to respect
other peoples opinions and passions without having a go.

The thread is called "Missing from Slot Racing" - not "I think what you would
like is a pile of crap and i'll slag it off".
