Hello there....!
I just ordered this car from a Dutch site. Has anyone got some info on this beauty? I want to race this car for all its worth, but its my first "resin"car and I don´t know how fragile they are. If you have one yourself, please feel free to give a little review


Thanx

Danny

What
No-one knows anything of Slot Real Cars??????? In this forum? That can´t be true
They make the 917LH´s of ´71 and the Ferrari "bread-van". I haven´t got my Porsche 917LH #17 yet (back-order), but when I do, I´ll hopefully make some of you guys really envious
I might write a little review of my own, then

Sorry Danny. I've never heard of them.

But I'm always interested in Le Mans cars, so a review would be handy.

Regards

Alan

He will!

917 fans (are there?)

The Porsche 917LH is one of the most impressive race machines ever build. In 1971 (that´s a long time ago....) this car reached an impressive speed of
almost 400 kilometres!
There are several versions of this car like the hippy painting and the Martini, but for me the Gulf versions are the nicest. Nice? GREAT!!!!!!

At this moment there are four Gulf versions of the 917LH as a slotcar in 1:32: (if MORE please let me now: [email protected])

The Top Slot is a kit (see pics)
All cars have resin body´s
All cars have Fly chassis / axes / motor / guide

Painting of the Slot Real Car 917´s is not so good. It´s not a hard job to do better!
Driving above cars come close to the Fly 917K but the cars are harder to control in the corners. The resin body is not only a little heavier but the tail of the 917 is much more then on the regular 917K.
Not only because of the driving capacity of these cars, also the price will give you the feeling not to use these cars for real racing. But it´s fun to drive (at 90%) these cars if your alone at your home track. A fine scotch whisky (45%), some good music from the 70´s and enjoy.................

PS: Do you know there al also seven Gulf version´s of the "normal" 917K,
four off the 908 and six off the most sexy car ever: the GT40..........

A list with many Gulf racing slotcars you find on my site at (it's also in Dutch but the table is usefull)
