Well done, Daniel. A fabulous model. I actually like it without wheel inserts. Nice chassis and running gear, too. Looks as though the Truffel Jaeger von Zuffenhausen is going to be a quick slot car. Very, very nice.

Now to build the white version, perhaps?
Much apreciated and kind words Laurence, I will try some wheel inserts and see how it looks, will post pics here and yes I plan to build the white version😀

Cheers

Ah, wonderful. A white version, too, Daniel. Great news. Your paddock is growing at a very healthy rate. Look forward to reading your track report on the new pink car. It really does look wonderful. My congratulations.

Don't want to nit-pick but I'm gonna! Your driver is on the wrong side of the car.

Yep, I realized that too late😅🤷🏻

Ps. In my defense I get confused sometimes cause here in America cars have the driving wheel on the left “ oh! The Colonies”(Jeremy Clarksons voice)

If all the racing circuits went the wrong way (counter-clockwise) like Indy, all racing cars would be left hand drive, too, to give the driver a better view of the inside border and apex.
I still get all confused with right hand drive road cars despite living in England. Just today, I tried to get in the passenger side again…….

The question has to be why did F1 constructors put the gear change on the on the right side of the car even when most of the constructors came from countries with righthand drive? All those drivers going from F1 cars to sports and saloon cars with the gear change onw on the left. I can only assume it a historic legacy going back to days of two seat GP cars and the gear change was outside the car.

But nowdays most of the racing cars use paddles in the driving wheel and secuencial gearbox or DSG gearbox(this last works wonders, when not broken)🤔
