Hi All,

I'm looking for a couple of the Top Slot Ferrari 166 LM Berlinetta kits - if anyone has one (or two!) to spare (or knows of a dealer with any stock left!) then I'd be interested....

thanks

Paul

Hi Paul,

Check out www.ultimate-32.com a UK site, they seem to have the Top Slot kit your after (click on shop, then classic race and just scroll down right to the bottom).

Haven't brought anything from them, but they seem to be helpful answering any queries.

Cheers
Mark

I have seen the kit and it is a nice body but be aware that, being sized to fit the Ninco Barchetta chassis, it is about 1/4" too wide. When I put the Barchetta next to my Slot Classic 350, the Barchetta is markedly larger which was not the case in the 1:1 world.

Mark: Thanks for the tip - order placed - and no 'out of stock' e-mail yet so I live in hope!

EM: That's the first time I've heard any sort of 'out of scale' comment regarding Top Slot kits before - has anybody else noticed this about their other kits???!

Sadly these were sold out so once again I'm looking - if anyone has one they want to offload then please get in touch!

Most of the Top=Slot bodies are designed to fit commercial plastic chassis thus the degree to which they are off-scale will be a function of how close the designated chassis is in wheelbase and track to the prototype. In the case of the 166, the difference is significant.

Thanks for the tips again guys - unfortunately Slotracing Kicherer has them 'on order' with the distributor so nothing definite there....

Have sent a mail to slot car world and awaiting the response from them.

As I'm on the lookout for something seemingly impossible to find here's another one: Does anyone have one of the Slot Classic DB4 Zagato's they would be willing to part with???!

Hey all,

just a quick note to say that I found all the bits I was looking for:

Top Slot Ferrari kit found at: Motodrom - very friendly service and will certainly get more of my business in the future (especially as they had the MRRC cooper-ford bodies in stock too!)

Slot Classic Zagato came from Derek Cooper - thanks again Derek!

Paul

On the lookout now for some of the other Slot Classics that are no longer available - if anyone needs a cash injection after Xmas then get in touch!
