Is it too heavy? Are we talking about the same GT1 form the Endurnce GT1 set, like the metallic blue one I run in the Porsche Challenge? Seems to run pretty good to me - with a V12 motor, Slot It axle and wheels
doubts as to modifiing it, but i would like to see the chassis inside as to possibly de-magging it and learning to drive no mag in a cheap car instead of an expensive one to smash up, if its no good like that then i shall let ppl learn to drive slot car in it, so that theyve got a choice as to nascar or porshe seeing as theyre only £10
The Porsche GT1 by scaly (club or other editions) are a handfull w/o a magnet esp with stock tyres. However they are good to learn basic no mag driving skills in as they are a challenge to drive fast (if you keep them in stock form) and you really notice the difference in lap times if you drive smooth, keep it in a straight line and only accelerate when you are pointing in a straight line.
The most forgiving way to learn no mag is with a SCX rally car and these can be picked up for not huge bucks.
However speed is much lower with no mag so even if you do come off you'll be suprised at the lack of damage inflicted ie any car is a good one to learn with.
