Somehow I think it's less likely to be Jules causing the delay and much more likely to be a production delay caused by lack of foresight by the Chinese Government.

The Chinese are struggling to fulfil their contracted manufacturing quotas due to power shortages, among other things. Any time a model proof gets rejected, for major error or minor, it goes back to the bottom of the waiting list. Pioneer is not the only slot car company affected by this, but they are the one we notice most because we're all looking forward to their next non-Mustang offering.

PS: Sorry to interrupt with the voice of reason. But... Have patience Grasshopper.

Hi there all..

PINHEAD69..... Like yourself, I am very much looking forward to the release of the "Pioneer Legends".. I am sure they will be "Well Worth" the wait...


In the meantime, while you are waiting. If you do purchase a P.P. Legends kit, they are great fun to build and race.

Here is my P.P. "Legend" I built for racing in the Scale Models "Legends" race series at Stockport (Manchester).

The kit comprises of the resin body (2 body styles available) metal chassis, wheels/tyres, axles, wheel inserts and axle bearings, so the only thing you have to buy, is a suitable small can FF motor, crown and pinion gears, and a slot guide, depending on what type of track you are going to use it on (plastic track or wooden)

The spec on my P.P. "Legend" is..... Scaleauto 30.000 rpm motor, slot-It deep wood guide, slot-It crown gear and the body painted in a suitable "Legends" livery (GENERAL LEE-GEND).

Please remember, these resin body/chassis kits although excellent cars, they do take quite a lot of work to put together and set up to use. So if you do not have the skills or patience to build one, I would suggest you wait for the "Pioneer" cars.... But saying that, "Have a go Anyway", you should enjoy yourself building one, "hopefully"

The other thing is. Not having fitted one, I am not sure if there is enough room in the car/chassis to fit a DPR chip to the P.P Legends car.

All the best.. Martin De'Ath.

Hi there all..

PINHEAD69 ... I thought you would like it... Yes, I drilled the front holes and bent up pieces of rod for the nerf bars.
Have a go at building one, I am sure you will be pleased with it.
My only extra piece of advice is.. Use a smaller RPM motor (21,000 or 25,000 rpm) especially if you are using it on a home plastic track.

If you need any help or tips, feel free to PM me..

Have fun...


All the best.. Martin De'ath.

cool ok thanks mart...
if i did one, i would want it to be competetive, just incase i did actually indulge in a race meet or something
besides, we cant have you having the fastest legend out there can we ;-)
i wouldnt use it much on my track anyway, although i would like the option to use it on a plastic and a routed track, then i'm covered for all aspects, all situations......
the crown, pinion gears and slot guide, i would'ny have a clue... so best ones suitable i guess whatever they are

The Chinese government?

I've heard some brill excuses in my time, but that's a classic. Personally I think it's a Russian plot to destablise the West before the Martians invade next Wednesday.

PP kits are really good and so well made, but quite a bit expensive when you add in wheels, tyres, axles, etc and a motor. Drop an email to the guy at the PP website and ask him to check that he has stock before you pay for anything. If you can't work out what parts you need (the website is 100% incredibly confusing and so too is the Pendleslotracing PP section) then he'll offer advice. He's totally cool and you'll be surprised how good he makes these kits and chassis.

In the meantime, I can only hope that Pioneer start making a few more cars that have been advertised on their website for a couple of years now. There are some stunners there that they'll make beautifully, I'm sure.

Have whatever opinion you like. World circumstances are what they are. Or do you guys not take notice of world news?

Embs, You're posting to a bunch of slot car fanatics, so I assume your question was rhetorical.


Pinhead... I'd take Martin's advice and choose a motor at 20K rpm (or even 18K rpm) if you build that PP car. However, if you really want a blazing car, albeit one that will be flying off the track quite often, I've got a few Black FF050 cans I can sell you at a great price.. God knows I'm not going to use them in my little F1 cars--right size.. wrong horsepower!

Cheers,

Mark

ok big, i will take note and use a smaller rpm motor
afterall i am a newb to this, and one saying it plants a seed, 2 saying it sprouts the flower
my motto is, no matter how well you can do things , always listen to experience
it is most certainly always right ;-)
although the rebelious side in me is still screaming a 25 rather than a 30 now
i will however fight it, thanks for your knowledge peeps
