Dear Scalextric,

I know you just came out with the 2010 McLaren Formula One cars a few months ago (2009 body style) and probably invested alot of money to get that done and put together. However, the 2011 car has some VERY distinct side-pods to say the least and as such I am pleading with you to not just do a re-spray of that 2009 shape. You see, those hugely unique side pods I just will NOT be able to ignore on some re-sprayed model. Please update the body for 2011. I will NOT be buying it otherwise. Is anybody else with me?

Regards,

It'd be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

Trouble is, it depends not just on Scalextric, but a lot on Mclaren too. Scalextric would need some of the designs for this years car to incorportate it, and given the nature of F1 Mclaren may not be willing to offer them that.

Well I hope if we can get 10,000 posts on this maybe they'll think its worth their while to try otherwise, enjoy the current shape for what, 4-5 years I think that is how long the last one ran...

Rakete,

You are 100% right.

As it is I did not buy the 2010 car because of the 2009 body shape.

I really like Scalextric F1 cars but the very different body shape of the 2011 Mclaren means that a re-spray of the 2009 version will not have me putting my hand in my pocket....sorry!!

I did buy the "2010" version and while I like the way it runs, I'm a little disappointed every time it laps my track. This 2011 car is just a bridge too far for me to pretend. Oh well, maybe they'll see this and listen... yeah, right.

Regards,

Count me in!!!!

I have ordered both the SCX Renault F1s and I am praying that they are not the same model with a different livery. Just BTW, are SCX as bad as Scaley when it comes to model recycling?

Cheers,

SCX seems to update their F1 shapes more frequently than Scaley, but I don't have alot of samples to make that a definitive statement. I understand why they do it, but when the cars change so dramatically and they just re-spray them, I find it annoying.
