Are Ninco going to be doing anything Digital?

It seems they're waiting for everyone else to show their cards first. Problem is by the time they get round to showing what they've got, the rest of the table will have ran off with all the winnings.

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?

If I was in Ninco's position, I'd hang fire until a clear market leader in the digital arena became apparent, and then would approach said market leader with a view to licensing their technology.

Save a bundle on development costs?

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.

Back to basics Ninco

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.

Oi'll drink ta dat!

The likely winner of the 'digital race' has already said that their chips can be retrofitted into most if not quite all cars.

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.

Well done Ninco!

I can see myself thinking about getting an off-road slot track soon. The scope for even more interesting slot vehicles gets ever wider. Why must I have temptation forced upon me on a daily basis?


Mark.

Oh, and Inte I wouldn't refer to your women as road-going porkers! If I were you

Hi all,

Ok the Ninco Article from Nürnburg has been updated with full pics and news.
The other Companies will be shown as soon as I get them written and uploaded.

Read it here
Newsworthy in itself was the fact that Vanquish were not present or represented by anyone else at all.

Enjoy!

I found some more pics of the Ninco releases (including the 930 Turbo) at messe2004.slot4you.de . Texts are all in German, unfortunately. They've got some information on the new Carrera releases, too.
