Probably wont be acutally in the uk for another 6 months or so ..
Great looking car.

Can I just say how great it is to see here and NSR on the R18 thread actually responding and letting the people who buy their cars know what is going on and why certain choices are made.

Come on guys at scaley, carrera etc, follow suit, we have choices as to who to give our money too.

Any way, back to the car, can't wat for a white kit to do a fantasy livery on.
The car is looking VERY nice! I´m also waiting for the Rebellion-livery (if they can get the "gold" right!).
Rebellion in early morning haze prior to Sebring this past March.

Rebellion modified the front end prior to Le Mans. At Sebring I knew that was going to make the Drayson Lola. That was a great start. One look at the Rebellion and I was willing to bet that it would be's second Lola.

Does it come with a spare wing as the one in the picture looks very fragile - but hey I love Slot-its more than any other brand so who cares - it looks fantastic. I wonder what the surprise that will be revealed later is?
Stunning car, an absolute must have. Finally a modern LMP from SlotIt!

Sweet and can't wait for the white kit to come out as well

I will take the white kit as well, for an inline setup that is. I absolutely dislike the flat6 motor (the is a personal opinion
) and that's the one that will be in this RTR livery.

Nice and light ! Good bit of news

Why mr slot it do you use the plastic gears as standard ? Is this to get the overall figure weight down so it looks a bit better ?

I'm only wondering as the mesh Is never as good as on the metal gears .
IMO the gear of the plastic AW gear is as good as the metal ones. Maybe it's a matter of personal taste but I prefer the plastic ones to the metal.
Oh Yes ! Flat 6 aw as standard, I want it even more now

Re the Plastic gears, I cant comment on mesh, as I haven't yet tried the Slot It plastic gears, but I did think they would cost less as an aftermarket part, or maybe get 2 for the same price as one alu ?
For that reason I will still buy the alu ones unless I need the narrower boss of the plastic ones TBH.

The only downside is I need to wait until March for it !

This car is scheduled for end of February / early March. For the Rebellion #13, it is also a 2012 release. A sample will be shown at the Nuernberg toy fair.
There's more to the picture than meets the eye and it will be disclosed in due time.

More information please Maurizio

I can't lift the hood just yet! One more week of patience.
It comes with a two piece body and you can switch the back end to a slightly larger one so it fits a boxer motor ????

Ok, enough's enough, everyone's trying to second guess whats under the lid (could be an entirely new chassis) but its silly suggestion time!

Benjamin mentioned the crown gear was well hidden, well it does appear very shallow over the back axle, the details given obviously means its an a/w but Maurizio says the CROWN gear is in the left hand arch, now I asked a couple of my friends
what they thought a crown gear meant, they said inline which is what I thought, most people refer to s/w and a/w as just
gears, could there be a transmission surprise, I was thinking along the lines of the Fly F1 angled inline set-up - yes it is a damned silly suggestion but its worth an unusual guess....what do think....yes you think I'm bonkers!

Sorry, I may have created some confusion here.
1 - The transmission is a spur AW gear, code GA1628PL, coupled with a 11 teeth 6.5mm pinion PS11. From this point of view, the car does not differ much from a RAW (Racing AngleWinder), except fot the motor (Flat-6, not Flat-6 R), and the motor mount which is new but not dissimilar from the standard AW motor mount. The main difference is the material, slightly softer due to manufacturing necessities, and the new cradle for magnet (or tungsten ballast) which is positioned right under the rear axle.
2 - We have shown elsewhere pictures of the two different bodies, the other one being capable of accepting the Boxer motors and inlince crwons in a 'conventional' way.

So it will be able to take a Flat 6 Inline Pod but not a Inline Mabuchi Pod for your Stock 21,5K Orange Cam Motor.
