Anybody here got any experience of the Teamslot Alfa GTA's. I believe they are plastic rather than resin. What is their performance comparative to in SCX, Ninco etc.

Just that I've always loved these little cars and there is no way I could afford a real one.

I too like Alfas, real cars and models; I have the GTA, but out of the box the performance is extremely poor and not comparable to Ninco, SCX or Scalextric; the quality of the model is also on the low side, but I like it very much, because has the feeling of the real car
; perhaps in the future I will change the running gear, who knows?

Ciao

I have 2 of them and they are about the same quality as SCX. They both had slightly out of round wheels. I swapped out the motors with RX4s and used the hotter TS-3s in some of my gt cars. They handle pretty well without the traction magnet and with sillie tires (Artin track). The drivers sit too low and the result is a "lowrider" kind of look(fixable). Bodies were painted well on my 2 and there were no real issues other than the wheels.

I agree with newbie's point a vieuw and could add ; shorten the
mounting posts a little,it gives the car a better stance and helps the ride.
The slot it solution is certainly a very good one, but then I miss the alfa inserts.
But maybe someone has a good solution fot this too?
