The Ninco porsche is undoubtably a very nice slot car with some good parts and innovaions (rubber bumpers, proshock suspensionand a good powerful magnet) and much more accurate compared to an older Scalextric model.
The older model really negates this as a useful comparison as so does not really make a point of Ninco vs Scalextric.
If a latest Scalextric model was placed against an older Ninco model then your comment
QUOTE just thought I would like to demonstrate something...
would be valid the other way round. However you really know that already Inte don't you.
Put the Subaru side by side and I think you will have to agree there is not alot between them - however IMO the quality of paint work and details swing the arguement Scalextric way
Unfortunately the Ninco Porsche Turbo hasn't filtered down to the high street stores and appears to be only available in the specialist slot car shops (ok, it was only released last week) so no luck today.
Hey Inte, i'm glad to hear you like it! mmm top notch detail... makes me want one even more!!
Blimey, it must be good, I can't recall the last time that you erm, really praised a car.
Oh I too, would like to second Nuro's request for a review, this car has been released but no one has gone into any detail.
Inte, can you even get that tongue out, it's stuck so far in your cheek? lol
I've run one and out of the box (without magnet of course...) it was better than a race prepared Ninco NC2 DTM. OK, the Porsche is wider and has an NC5, but thats still quite an achievement. It was hopping quite a lot tho, possibly because that suspension interferes with the power transmission (to the track via wheels, not from a box to the car, lol). I say buy one, even if only to race to once at a classis car meeting and piss all over everybody.
I think they need the suspension glued up (if you do this properly, you can still swap your race spec struts for springy ones), some decent tyres on the back (they are a bit too soft) and it will fly.
