The bikes wobble , they lean the wrong way and they are slow. Tim had a go,naughty, before getting told off! Not impressed to be honest mainly cos they were too slow. This was the only stand attended by a non Hornby employee, Guy was a demonstrator , pleasant enough character.
I agree on both counts!!

If they had made them 1/32 they would not have been so tall which I believe is the cause of the wobble and I would have collected them. Not gonna give up yet as sraspaul spotted a couple of different mag positions on the display bikes so will wait for production run to assess more accuratly. They do look very good and I believe people will buy them as not many get the benefit of advanced testing thru this cracking forum.

They may well be easy to mod, after all loads of cars require mods to get them working proper so I`m going easy here. I reckon a much better outrigger could be made easily nuff.

I like the fact that the rider is loose,only attached by a magnet. I reckon someone will take you up on that challenge!
I`ve looked,handled and watched me mate play and the demonstrator try his best and I stand by my earlier posts

Moped has his finger on the pulse there and I know exactly what he`s talking about
as I posted before, me club mate and top racer at Phoenix`Timmy Jordan` (Eddie Jordans Love child) stole a lap and the bikes were slow even on the straight. Hard to define slow here but guys it wasn`t a pretty sight.

I don`t want to get outa topic here (or ahead of a phone call with Adrian tomorrow) but, I`m reorganising the Phoenix British GT Drivers meeting for March. Adrian is attending and I hope he can bring some of this kit along so you may have a chance to play ahead of schedule. Should be good with a BAR F1 car and the Phoenix sponsored GT car, Ultima on display too. More to follow, can`t tell you exact date yet but hope you guys are gonna be up for it
Should ask Luca for an SCX digital demo too really shouldn`t I?

Adrian is supporting and attending the Phoenix British GT Drivers Challenge (date T.B.C. ) .

Watch SF for more info and an opportunity to get some hands on. Adrian is on the move again but I will have this event sorted by next week. Hoping Scalextric can set up some Digital and World system so we can all enjoy a sneak preview. If you get behind me I`m sure we can have a good day out at the races
