Modified Mondeo's

Ok, welcome to my eccentric world of modifying one of the most vague and boring models that Scalextric possibly ever made! There was nothing every wrong with them but they hardly stood out from the crowd either. The Mondeo made up part of the BTCC collection that Scalextric were making at the time, the thing with the Mondeo was that it wasn't the correct shape! Every single Mondeo made was the 4 door saloon, which was raced only until '95, when the liverys they produced should have all been on 5dr models.
But anyhow! What is there do with these Mondeo's? Well….
Modify them!
Here's a couple I've done so far:

Mondeo GT:
INFO - The Mondeo GT concept, lowered by 10mm (even if the pic doesn't make it look like that) with enlarged wheel arches. 35,00 rpm motor, slot-it axle system, light weight body, GT rear wing. Super magnets

Mondeo Limousine:
INFO - All parts remain standard apart from 3 inches being added in length. The car runs surprisingly well and sparked interest for a small championship, the chassis extended with a 15cm plastic ruler. Simple and cheap!

Intrested in my Mondeo's??? Please visit one of my sites, for more pictures and future projects - JJ's Mod'ed Mondeos

Hope u enjoy!

Thank You very much!


The limo idea began a while back and we ran a Limo championship using 4 that i had made. (all painted up in lane colours) Was a good laugh too, if u could 't-bone' one hard enough the thing would snap in two! Superb for rear-end swings aswell.
By all means - Give it a go!

ooo, if anyone wondered what became of the Mondeo GT... i kinda broke over a period of 3 weeks, ending up flying out of the club room. Rather funny and a good end to the season it was tooo!

any more suggestions for a Mondeo? don't know how a Mondeo F1 would work..., maybe a Mondeo Rally, big wheels, 'bull' bars and mud flaps?

Slowly coming to the conclusion that there are some very perverted people here!
Even more disturbing to find the boss has latent tendencies too!

it's only a little bit of fun!

what else should we do with our mondeo's?

i've had an idea! i might make an estate version with roof rack, could do with a pair of mountain bikes. Then finish it off with a caravan, which I already have.

then, as a final touch - paint in blue!


why did so many people go out and buy blue L-reg mondeos, which by now have lost all their wheel hubs/trims. Anyone else noticed this?
It's the same with Vauxhal Astra Estates that are in in white with huge roof-racks/bars? WHY??
(these are common sights in the Uk! honest!)

anyway!

have fun and go build a limo!
