that looks like the american version of the ford ranger rather than the european version the track looks good the trucks look great and the 934's look stunning ninco really know how to extract money from you
also ninco please make the raid cars as road versions.
i am not sure about rubber bumpers
With three of them at it already and some doubt as to whether any of them will ever be able to count themselves as 'winners' in the digital field, perhaps Ninco is wisely refraining from the fray until they see how it pans out. Or perhaps they have simply kept much quieter about their back-stage research - who knows what they have up their sleeve?
QUOTE (Oilslick @ 6 Feb 2004, 02:03 AM)Are Ninco going to be doing anything Digital?
I am rather hoping that they don't!
I would quite like to see them distancing themselves from the others, not just digitally, but also in the "arms race" of detail and magnetic downforce that IMO is leading cars away from being good at what they are supposed to be good at. This more magnet-bigger motor idea seems to me to be like fitting a V8 in your Escort so you can drive around with the handbrake on.
Ninco's original stuff is still some of the best racing you can get. We raced the Minis tonight at Liphook, they bounced all over the place and the Merc CLK DTMs were chewing contrates, yet the original NC1 Porsche GT1s were an absolute blast and drove faultlessly, despite being a fair bit older and having been used a hell of a lot more.
You make a very good point. I never hesitate to place any new Ninco car onto the track. No battle with my concience cos I paid silly money or worrying about detail falling off. They are good solid cars and we love them at P Club. Great cars for Endurance racing.
Irrelevant of their obscurity I think the raid series will continue to be popular as it expands in both model range and track. I know people who are devoting tracks to this 'new' direction of slot racing.
