Hello Everyone

It's always nice to have a new Slot.it model - particularly something closer to present day.... but, I'll probably be passing on these. I was never a fan of the Porsche GT1-98 version. I was hoping that one of the two previous versions (GT1 and GT1 EVO) was the one they'd make. It was better looking (IMO) and greater variety of liveries to pick from. I guess if I want to race something from this era that looks and runs great, I'll be sticking with the McLaren! It would be nice if Slot.it would do the Mercedes CLK GTR just round out the FIA GT1 cars from that period.

Regards!

Mike

Ah, I was hoping for the Toyota GT-One, the Proslot was a very good racer but not a beautiful model. Regarding the Porsche GT1-98, I am very happy with the FLY one but I will still had those Slot.It to my collection. I agree with you though that the first GT1 would have been a better choice for the number of liveries and because no manufacturer did the car full justice. The fact that the GT1-98 won Le Mans was a key point in the decision making I guess.

This looks like a must buy for me...


I bought a fly Racing series Porsche (bright Yellow) a few weeks back at a swap meet so I'm hoping this should be a vast improvement.

Better start saving now

Straight onto my want list

Flat 6 AW setup OOTB and a proper guide ... excellent


Is there room for a boxer motor in AW too, or is the rear deck too low ?

A note for reviewers, especially with cars meant for competative racing: Front and rear track and distance from guide hole centre to rear axle centre is handy info as well as the mentioned weight

Any ETA in etailers ?

Wheelbase: 80.5mm
Axle diameters: 2.4mm

Front wheel diameter: 19.5mm
Rear wheel diameter: 20.4mm

Pinion gear: 11
Crown gear: 28

Thanks for the Info Doug, I presume the track numbers you gave are ~ +10mm to the outside edges of the tyres (presuming 10mm wide rear tyres fitted as standard).

Hi Doug,
The car you received is the one I tried on our track. The only thing I did was removal of the magnet (that you can find under the base of the box). Tyre truing is the effect on running some laps on a Ninco track.

Yes, a Boxer motor fits well under the car.
Body weight is 16g approximately.

Available in approximately one month

Regards
Maurizio

As it is only recently i have bought plastic cars i have found the Slot it one's very good and look forward to having a good look at the Porsche and forking out the readies, just a question will we be able to get spare body parts like mirrors and rear wings as i have a habit of rolling my cars at the end of a straight and they seem to fall off!! used to racing smooth bodies with no pretutions perhaps, i don't run magnets perhaps that's why Keith

Very much looking forward to adding this into my collection, Hopefully the Mercedes won't be far behind.

It does beg a question though - what to do about the differences in the engines of the older models? Can we buy a upgrade kit with the new boxer motor and bracket to sit inside the existing floor on the older Mclarens, Audi R8C, Nissan 390 and Ferrari or do we need a whole new under tray?

Cheers,

Hi

@Peter Gunn: Yes the black spare parts will be available, code CS23p

@90s F1 Kid: provided you have a recent enough chassis (tray), yes: very old chassis for the Nissan was sidewinder only. Note that the first Audi (Code CA01-xx) cannot be run as anglewinder. Recent 'Reloaded' Audi (Code CA12-xx) is Anglewinder-Flat6 compatible instead.

Rule of thumb: any GT or LMP car with an EVO6 chassis can run with an angled Flat-6 motor

Regards
Maurizio

Maurizio,

Sorry for the confusion but I meant to ask if the new Porsche GT1 EVO 98 will take an in-line orange end bell mount and motor.

Thanks,
