I saw someone's signature on here, wishing for Honda NSX to be a slotcar, along with an R34 Skyline and an RX7.

Behold, Cartrix NSX

I don't know if this is a significant find, but it struck me after seeing that signature a while back.

If this is actually a waste of webspace then by all means delete this thread, but I thought it might be mildly intesting. It's probably just me being a newbie.......

I purchased one of the black Cartrix NSX's last week and straight out of the box it was ultra quick. By the end of the session, about 200 laps later, I had set a new track record on my home circuit by 0.14 secs. The previous record had stood for around approximately 5 years, set by a Fly marcos, although my Ninco Ferrari F1 did equal it last year.
If anybody is wondering whether to purchase one of these to race, then do not hesitate.

And a transmission specialist too! My black Takata NSX is a bit noisy. It's better since a couple of applications of toothpaste to the gears though.

They are noisy, but very smooth. The noise level is no more than some Fly cars I have raced.

Tampoo? I didn't think mine was too bad at all. It was the two screw body fixing that irked me. I've had to put a little bit of plasticard on top of the rear post to lift the shell clear of the tyres.

She went quite swiftly until a wheel came off! That kinda rattled my cage too - less than 30 laps.

Still, I'm up for another livery when the rest show up. Can't beat a bit of Jap crap - you got a 550, Modenas, an Impreza and a 968 in there too!

250 GTO told me to glue the wheels on!
I guess the message didn't get around...

At least the 2 screw fixing ensures it's easy to gain some body rock. I sanded the inside of the rear arches and I'm just awaiting a track test

It's true that Cartrix did not choose the most striking liveries for their NSX so far, but I'm quite confident that their work will be fine when they tackle the more challenging liveries. I have some of their Hyundais and they are fine.
