Fly Alfa 156 is front engine (just like the real car and as per photos evotec have)and with the full cockpit I bet it does not have alot of room for any additional weight.
We run of a routed track with copper braid and the kings of the fly front engine class is the Panoz but even with a complete upgrade its times don't compare favourably with most rear engined classes (except Ninco Nc1 classics and go karts)
I once did race a Fly Lister Storm (front engined) in a championship at Pendle. I did get it on the pace, although, it took quite a bit of work. (filing all over the place! even on the motor to get a front axle in.) I had to add weight, which is something I never do. At the end of it all, i concluded - fast but fragile. Lovely model though!
I might give a ETCC BMW a try. Awaiting a Andy Priaulx livery... "Go Andy, Go!!!"
TO ALL UK FLY CAR ENTHUSIASTS WAITING FOR THE ARRIVAL OF THE ALFA 156
I have had a message from Fly who would like to send their apologies - they normally despatch cars bound for the UK quite quickly along with the rest of Europe, but there has been a small delay. They were sent yesterday so should be in the UK on Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, and with your dealers by the weekend.
