Have just bought one from a collector in Australia. He had run the motor in carefully, lightly trued the tyres and stored it for a few years. Picked it up for $41 Aust. off Ebay.com.au and I raced it for the first time tonight.
It went great straight out of the box and I am very impressed with my purchase.
Very impressive car with great finish.

Hi Bruce,

You will probably want to watch very carefully for those front light lenses. They pop out and disappear very easily. I've glued mine in with PVA (standard 'craft' white glue - also commonly used as a wood glue). It dries clear and doesn't mist clear plastic.

I was given one when it first came out...

The chassis was warped, the motor smoked and then gave up.

It handled like ****

...and the front light lenses popped out.

...and the tyres kept coming off the rims!

Replaced motor with an 25K scalex.... still one of the slowest, ill handling cars I've got. (I remove magnets BTW)

Oh - but the tampo printing is brill.

It reminded me why I never usually bother with Hornby stuff.

Perhaps I was unlucky

Still have this car to this day... glued in the lenses. I still refer to it as my first "rocking chair" car. I could drive it with my eyes half closed and relax the whole race. First car I used for a LeMans style race with day, night and twilight racing and I won the race. Guess I was just "lucky".
