The SCX Dome Judd is supposed to include the SCX pro-plus motor. Bascially this means that this car should go faster as the motor has a rated RPM of 19,000 compared to the standard 16,000 of the RX-41 which is included in all standard 2wd SCX cars.
I`ve got a meeting with Luca Porcellati SCX International Trade Marketing Director on Tuesday. He`s meeting me at Phoenix Club. I could ask him to clear up the above plus any other SCX Q`s you have guys?
As a matter of interest the point of our meeting is to discuss me setting up and running the European SCX Rally Championship. Any one out there interested? Let me know guys.
Belive it or not i have not seen one in the flesh yet!
I don't get review models until they are branded as SCX (not Scalextric for Spain).
I should be getting the review model early next month.
And will let you know.
Press release info:

I have a press shot that i can post when Mr Material and Jules tell me how tonight!
The closest thing i can compare to at the moment is the Tecnitoys Scalextric Club car 2003, this was issued under "Competition Pro" and apart from the lights had the same spec as above, however it did not have a SRS type chassis.
Say Jex, what's your connection with the SCX folk?
Tropi, yes I too would love to see bushes for sale (no, not talking garden centres here), never have. Kinda defeats the object not to. I'm told there is some fellow does ebuy auctions of 'em every now and then. Never seen one myself mind.
