Nice review Integrali!!!


Nice car too... saw it a few months ago in Tenerifé for 30 euro's...
But I could buy the whole shop empty...

Maybe I should take another trip to there!

Maybe I'll buy me a 911 in race livery here in Belgium...

Iconic car and I suspect they will fly of the shelves even without the race liveries. No wife or girlfriend of a 30-50 something man could fail to endear themselves buying one for her man.

I am glad it was Ninco who did it - it will drive well for casual buyers or newbies* - increasingly the chances of them getting back into the hobby. Just a pity Ninco's distribution is limited in the UK.

* What a terrible, patronising and downgrading name that is. I wonder how many newcomers are put off getting involved in a club or even just posting here because they see this word used?

I agree, Scott.
But you know what sensitive souls you and I are - maybe others don't mind?
Going to take a look at the review now - I may be some time.

Ninco! Ninco! Ninco!

You can hear the chant now!

I've always thought highly of Ninco and this release is more plum in the pudding as far as I'm concerned (did that make sense?!)

Always been good to me, great runners, nice body shapes, durable, fast, and priced to sell - what more could you ask for...

oh yes almost forgot, they don't seem to play that LIMITED SPECIAL EDITION pay for packaging, get it now or you lose kind of sales stategy. There always seems to be plenty of every model to go around!

Hooray!

got one of these porsches, and it is fabulous!

One thing is puzzling though (for those who don't like rivet counters, please look away now!!!)

on the pre-release pics, the black flash on the side is on the wheel arch. This corresponds to other pics I have seen, and I understand on the 1:1 car it is a plastic stone guard. So I was surprised that on the production model it has moved to a very strange place, on the body before the wheel arch. Pity


Still - does not take away all the remarkable great things about this car

Nice review from Inte and I agree the car looks very appealing. How about a bit more technical feedback? In particular, I'm interested in how effective (or detrimental) the suspension system is, especially for non-magnet racing. From the pix it looks like the whole chassis sits pretty high, with the body even higher yet (to clear the bouncy wheels?) Are there possibilities for conversion to "normal" suspension, hopefully with lowered stance? What about speed, handling and braking (never tried an NC-5), again without magnets? Many thanks,

Ask and ye shall receive…

Harry Wise just posted a review of the 911 on Home Racing World (http://www.homeracingworld.com/nincoporsche911.htm). While he seemed to be pleased with the car overall, he did encounter problems with the suspension. I know the subject of independent suspension has been debated before, and usually dismissed as an interesting but ultimately useless feature in most slot cars. Although it may have a place in rally or truck racing, or maybe even some open-wheeled applications, what is the point of putting it on a road machine like the Porsche 911? I like the looks of this car a lot, but likely will do away with the suspension in an effort to drop the body slightly for a lower and meaner look.

It might not mean much to Europeans, but I remember being blown away in the mid-1970s upon first seeing the Dutch equivalent of highway patrolmen flashing by in 911s. Geez Louise, even the cops drive sports cars here! How cool is that?

Love the car, take magnet out, throw on some SIPT02 P2 SOFT COMPOUND SLICK TYRES 20x11 and ground down 0 grips (slot.it) glue motor in and off you go.............great car......blue springs work well on the front. Motor likes '3 in 1 teflon' oil just a little on the comm makes it rev a bit higher. Tried truing down kit tyres and they over heat my tyre truer and if trued when on car WILL BURN OUT YOUR MOTOR!

....."must have next one"

'he said with a twitchy eye and dribbling out off corner of mouth' .......eeeeehhhhhh!

The Jagermeister one looks appealing...

To drop the car, take off the struts and remove the springs. Put them back on the car and it should be on the deck. Put a little blob of super glue on each one and it fixes it down. Sorted.

If you can remove the springs, just squash it down with something heavy, then glue.
