Nice looking.

Very adjustable - which will appeal to the speed demons.

I would be changing that blue spur gear for a black one asap (see the last photo of the blue one). Apart from that very minor point they are very nice looking cars and are on my wish list.

Good luck getting the red one Joe - they are probably not available - looking forward to the Epson car it should be sweet.

Wraith - the Raybrig presentation car looks like it may be black or black and gun metal

The chassis looks like a plastic version of the 1/24 MSC chassis

I don't like the chassis. I haven't seen one yet with multiple holes that goes back square.

A bespoke chassis per model will always have less comprise built in.

Just raced the Scaleauto Radical at Slot Fest in Manufacturers race using the new Rt2 Chassis. Motor cradle arrangement is up there with the best, infinately tunable for all types of track. The long awaited Honda is a winner in my book.

The "old" Radical chassis is simply awesome, no news yet on when the new radical livery hits the shelves despite it being scheduled for Dec last year !
I have yet to find a "universal" chassis that will outperform a good bespoke, but who knows, Scaleauto may just suprise us.

The Autobacs livery is foreseen and will be very close to the one shown here. That model was due to be released some months ago, but I will still be delighted to add all liveries to my collection.

You'll only see that gear when it's standing still....which won't be too often!
Seeing that they're pre-production, I hope they bother to put something in the body work to cover it up otherwise it's just going to look cheap....which it probably won't be.
