1106IL - Audi R18 TDI #1 - 24h Le Mans 2011

NSR's objective is to make a GT car using modern technology, so high tech 'Ready To Race'. It needed to be competitive straight out the box.

The Audi R18 TDI is an innovative model with high tech components, highly performing on track still respecting the scale modellistic aspect.

Audi R18 TDI comes in inline setup. The motor is King EVO 21 which has 21400 rpm @ 12 Volts 322 gr/cm.

The special aluminium rims with AIR SYSTEM technology, along with soft compound tyres, give an exceptional grip on any kind of track surface.

3/32" 60 HRC steel axles; Aluminium rims with Air System technology











The Audi R18 TDI was created in the streamline of the Mosler GT project which has dominated in the GT top class either in National and International competitions since it was released in 2006.

In according with the NSR philosophy, they have worked to obtain the best performances without any compromise.

The NSR Audi R18 TDI is the most competitive 1/32nd scale model.

Wenn this is the Le Mans 2011 Audi why don't I see the "24 heures du Mans" stickers on the car?

Apart from the fact that in 2011 the prototype sticker, the P1, was a red P1 on a white background instead of a white P1 on a red background.

I can understand the omission of the mentioned "24 heures du Mans" stickers due to license costs/problems but to make such an obvious mistake with the P1

Perhaps they have modelled the "test day" car to save on licence fees?

Nice find DJ. This NSR is a fine rendition and a tremendous runner. I know some people don't care for it, to each their own.




Looks spot on to me.

Obviously the test day car - thanks for the photos. I am sure that we'll see more liveries as the cost of developing the moulds and printing techniques was considerable.

Pre-production models:


We've seen a few other manufacturers bypass the Le Mans logos in recent years - I think the prices charged for their use is a bit much.

There is one big mistake that they made!

On the new cars of the LMP1 class the front wheels should have the same size as the rear wheels.

NSR don't make slotcars to be 100% accurate shelf queens. They build them to look acceptable and race like a stunning fury. You can't see tiny little tampo prints when a car is hurtling around the track, so who gives a hoot?

Can anyone detail how good these odd looking monsters perform on the track for the whacking expensive price NSR want for them?

True they are more expensive than a Carrera, an SCX or a Scaley car but shop around and you'll buy the NSR R18 in white kit form for less than £50 and the full liveried model for under £60. If you race at home on a small track you'll be wondering why you spent the extra cash but if you're a club racer with a larger playground you'll have got yourself a bit of a bargain.

Looks very good, I think I might have to buy all three! At the end of the day, if the missing Le Mans stickers are such an annoyance, find the image on Google, resize it, and print it as a decal. Job done.

Performance is reasonable. We race on a steel braided wooden track, so the magnets have a big affect on the cars speed. The car is very fast until you start to push it, and instead of sliding as say the Mosler or a Slot.it would, its almost as though the car looses grip and flips itself out of the slot. If NSR produced this in anglewinder guise, it could definatly be well up there with the fastest Sports cars. Either that, or use a motor with less magnetic downforce. I intend to buy the Rockenfeller car, and fit it with the 20k Scaleauto Long Closed Can, and see how fast it is.

If set up properly , they are amazing .

Jon inline set up generally speaking gives a far more natural feel than angle winder .

Haven't got one yet but really considering it

Hello

yes, you are right 100%! these are the rules to race REAL 24h Le Mans.... but here we are talking about SLOTCARS!

Now, dear reader, please listen:

front wheels are 20mm diameter
rear wheels are 20.5mm diameter

so, please check ALL other slotcars on the market from ALL manifacturers in the world and let me know results, I'm really curious to read your result

2.
if I put 20.5mm dia front tires, ALL racers will be NO happy.... and some collectors will be happy ONLY TO LOOK car... (but this is not my target)

if I put 19mm dia front tires, ALL collectors will be NO happy.... and racers will be happy ONLY TO LOOK car... as they ALWAYS will replace tires putting 18mm dia....

Really it is impossible to make happy ALL people!! I'm not Jesus!!! I'm not wizard!!!
I try to make "compromise" putting 20mm front instead of standard 19mm front, this is the best I can do on NSR cars.

But please believe me, after many many years I still don't understand HOW it is possible to write such comments!!!
"There is one big mistake" !!!!
WHO are you????
WHO are you, having the "power" to write this comment? Are you Mr AUDI in person???
Please read NSR website, and learn that NSR makes SLOTCARS FOR COMPETITIONS!!
Here we are talking about SLOTCARS made to win races around the world!!
And YOU are talking about difference of 0.5mm diameter!!!!! 0,25mm radius!!!!!!

If you are convinced that we made mistake of 0,5mm, I can say that
ALL our life is a mistake!!

Best regards

Hello readers!

24h LM logo??

After I payied CASH:
july 2011 : 15,000 eur to AUDI to buy R18 licence
sept 2011: 55,000 eur to buy molds for R18
jan 2011: 7,500 eur to buy mold for inline motor mount

I'm really tired to give money for a stupid logo

Some people don't imagine my costs to make everything here in Italy
So, I Thank in advance all readers that understand me

That sort of lays it out... doesn't it? I quite understand about the cost of production.

I suppose it human nature to gripe when expectations aren't fully realized. I'm glad you made the effort. The clever ones among us will figure out a way to add the logo on our own. Me? I'm happy with the test version... even with the typo
