I was racing the Scalextric Maserati 250F and Vanwall... what fun cars to race. They slide a little bit and it's very controllable up to a point until the magnet is no longer over the power rails and then the car does a flat spin. It is really fun to try to slide them around just a little bit but not too much. Am I the only one racing these? Nobody else seems to be discsussing these.

Rich, didn't you notice here that there's an entire day of racing organized around these cars in Northern England at the end of January? It was supposed to be just a friendly get-together, suggested by Mac Pinches, to try out the two new Scalex cars. But now it's a full slate of racing, with 35 drivers registered, for an RTR category and a Scratch/kit category.... I'm sure there will be some reports on how these cars do on a club track...

I'm also curious to see how many other types of RTR cars from the Early Bird GP category will show up. I'm taking my Maser, but also a few resin models (Gordini, Ferrari 375, Alfa P2 and even a Pink Bug!). And some scratch-built pin cars from your neck of the woods ... (so, is Pete talking yet?).

But to answer your question, nope, haven't tried mine on a track yet...

Hi rich and Don,

There's another days racing for them at Bath this weekend. i'm taking my scaley maser, Power & Glory BRM and Cartrix Merc to try in the RTR class. I'm also entering the scratch built class It'll be a good warm up for the Early Bird meeting.

I still have to build a chassis for the pre 64 sports class..
