QUOTE As far as i know there are not plans to issue the Mitsubishi with a Scalextric logo down the side (but this may change).
The Mitsubishi with 'Scalextric' advertising has been released in Spain ref 6160.
For these and other SCX Spanish only releases we have a dedicated SCX Imports page www.pendleslotracing.co.uk
i have been looking for a place to grab imports from, that marc gene test car looks nice, its just a shame the scx cars are so out of proportion, i think the renault scalextric is by far the closest to realism so far.
Any ideas where i might be able to grab some pre-painted helmets from? Looking for schumachers helmet for the carrera ferrari version.
And I tend to agree - it's only claim to flaim is the rather dubious 'limited/reissue/blah blah' description that will automatically attract some 'collectors' in spite of it being a fairly faithful rendition of what was always a fairly horrible slot car.
Just heard that the Set cars will not be available (via normal routes) in the UK.
USA, GErmany, France etc but not UK - licence issues.
I belive the numbers on the Mustang are 4000 in SCX versions and 4000 in Scalextric (Spain) versions.
One thing that our Spainish forum members could help with:
I have all the Tecnitoys Vintage cars. Most of the SCX versions have the LE number stamped into the chassis, but the Spanish versions i have don't - do the Spainsh versions of these Mustangs have the number stamped into the chassis?
PS thaks Sean for correcting my mistake on the Mit Spain version.
Personally rather the Mustang over the two fairly nondescript rally cars any day, they look like they should have been released back in mid 90's. Especially when compared to other SCX cars released to date.
Phil, with reference to Schumacher's helmet. I am currently pondering whether to swap the existing Carrera driver/helmet for a current Scalextric F1 driver and repainting?
