I've got 2 Team Slot cars.
Lancia Delta Integrale "Martini" no: 11202
Alfa Romeo Gulia Sprint GTA "Alpes 66" no:11102
The Delta is lightning fast right out of the box.Nothing much to complain about really....maybe some high transmission noise but
Finish is alright and paint is good.
The Alfa is another story. Transmisson makes a h**l of a noise, crownwheel is not inline with the rest, motor will not rev prperly, guideblade keeps getting stuck....
Since I am an Alfa Romeo "Idiot", I've kept the car on the shelf as a "nice car to rest my eyes on"...
But the other night I could not bare it any more. I tore the car apart and tried to fix it. With LOTS of TLC, I managed to get everything OK...except the engine.
At last I was sooooo frustrated, I took my 5-56 spray(WD40 etc...) and sprayed it directly into the engine to see if it would respond...no change at all.
Sprayed the engine afterwards with some electronic cleaser and left the car alone for almost a week. After I tried it again after my "abuse", the engine revs as mad and now, finally, the cars i SOOO much fun to drive...(I've only had it for a year
In my opinion, the cars are not ready to run from box...you need som tlc before you use them. They look great in my opinion...that's why I bought mine in the first place
BUT I haven't found another make yet that does some of my favourite cars; Lancia Delta, Alfa Romeo,
