As for the C8R, I like what is shown, C8R clearly done much in the same way as the AMR Vantage.
Nice clean and detailed body.
Same construction method for the rear valance/bumper
Body float no problem with this car.
Should be a "stock" favorite
Looks like a nice future project to convert the car to DiSCA LM GT spec. in cooperation with ProSpeed.
Do see one minor "issue" in converting the C8R from inline to AW/SW configuration.
As shown in video the C8R has two body post at the rear...and one of them will interfere with an AW/SW spur.
But..not a very big problem for DiSCA GTLM rules.
From what I have heard, the US market dwarfs the UK market for slot cars (sorry Wankle). Corvettes (and the Corvette racing team) are extremely popular over here, so I think this will sell VERY well here, and probably be a big hit for Scaley.
Im not a huge Vette fan (we live off Route 66, so this is usually the only exotic car we see here), but I think I will pick one up as modern endurance racing isnt the same without the Corvettes.
I think Scaley did a nice job with this model. Looking forward to owning it.
Scalex has done a very good job also with the C6R...plenty of more liveries for that one but still a very nice model.
This one looks really good and for sure a couple will find their way in my big boxes that live under my track...To be honest I run out of space and all the current arrivals are accumulating in the my office room.
Its a pity Scalextric don't sell the body/interior separately.
They make great bodies but that chassis looks like most of theirs, weak around the motor and rear axle area promoting flex and therefore hopping once some tyres with actual grip have been fitted, of course none of this as noticable with stock magnets on stock track.
If the width of this car is decent, it might make it into my collection as I love the C8 looks, but I foresee a minimum of rear bracing required and a swap of rear axle, bushings and gears to avoid the toy fit slop of the original.
