Hmm I must say, I'm not offering my opinion based on personal expierience with the cars you mention, but with the Scalextric cars I do have( two Porshce GT3R/Mustang/TVR400R/MG Lola/Mclaren MP4/Subaru Impreza), all of the sidewinder cars handle and perform very similar, As in they are spritely enough of the mark and in general handle to a acceptable level, but they dont have the recovery window of Ninco and SCX cars(as an example) when they do become unstuck(or in a slide/power slide),
Really I would rate them as good fun cars which are easy to drive fast to a level, but go beyond that level and you need to be fast to catch them before they crash(I hope all that makes some sort of sense!!!),
Oh and they are all quite nicely finished and detailed,
And why Scalextric limit the numbers is clearly a strange decision. We know they're somewhat popular overseas, especially in the US thanks to Harry at HRW, yet if Scalex produced a limited edition car then these are them. They're a great club car, an excellent beginners car because they're basic like the Dallara openwheelers yet they're rare as hen's teeth.
I never could quite understand marketing decisions and this is one of them.
