Yes, Slot-It Porsches need some competitors.

Let's hope someone brings those magnificent Silk Cut Jags and the Sauber Mercedes as well ...

On the GTP front, there was many Lola T600 racing in the US ... Could be a clever choice ...

Of course the Lightweight E will be a winner, but I would like very very much also another Jaguar : the racing XJC (of Tom Walkinshaw,I believe); do you remember? Not the coupè XJS but the saloon with two doors of the 80': it was very sleek.

Different wheels pegdrive, fuel injection, Aluminium bodywork, these cars were raced by people like Graham Hill and were built to compete against the Ferrari 250GTO.

Looks like they are sticking with a general era, so most of the cars would run against each other, or nearly so. Nice to see, rather than bringing out one or two from a time and class with little to run against. I forsee picking up several of these. The GS, 550, E-type for certain.

OT Also agree with an earlier post that I hope slot.it continues their lineup with the Silk Cut Jaguars and Sauber Mercedes, also the Mazda (even though SCX did one a while ago). Those are all cars that should compete well against each other.

Thank-you Revell, lightweight E-Type and Porsche 550A! There goes my unofficial new year's resolution to cut back on slots! At least there only seems to be two versions of each so it could be worse (for my cards)!
I can't believe there have been so few slot versions of the E-type, (the only ones I know of are the SCX and Airfix models). Now if they'd like to do the MGC GTS I could really get in debt!

That's great news, it obviously shows that Revellogram are happy to invest in a slot car future and that they are pleased with the response to their initial releases.

Particularly good to see an RTR lightweight E-type and personally am looking forward to the NSU saloons. There was a review of the SCX Gulf Abarth in the NSCC mag last year and the writer suggested these NSUs as a good car to be produced to race against the little Fiats. What foresight!

Caught sight of Revell's pre toyfair trade pack at my local supplier yesterday with back cover of new releases catalogue dedicated to slot. Piccies of real Greenwoods, Mustang, that Kreepy Krauly (sp?) thing- March was it- but most interestingly a LOW DRAG E-type, a la CUT 7, not a lightweight! Probably just a cock up from whoever was responsible for selecting the images but would be nice, all the same.

NSUs appeared to be pics of models, but with front wheels on full lock, probably 1/18 diecasts. Look good tho'!
