What Is a New slot worth

What's a new slot car worth? several of the new car review have had remarks about the cost of resin handbuilt slot cars. This morning I received a Slot Classic RTR Pegaso Spyder for a magazine article, which I will also post here when finished. These are not cheap slot cars cost around £125 from dealers like Sean,but to me they are excellent value for money.

In the one post it was said that Fly may be making Pegaso model slot cars would these be better value for money? (at around £35-unlimited) depending on how many they make? are they a so called limited editions ( to me this must mean very small numbers 100 or less not how many they think they can sell )

If Fly or any other manufacture produced a new slot car then only made around 100 or so RTR of them with the rest of the 400 being kits how much would these go for?

The finish on the Pegaso is much better than on a Fly or other similar model and so is the detail. How many time do you see on Ebay a Slot Classic Factory RTR for sale?

The most beautiful slot model I have ever seen is a resin Ferrari 1957 "Le Mans" sport car, which is currently in the Pendle Slot Racing shop on display, Could Fly or Scalextric or any other company make such a wonderful job of a slot car personally I don't think so.

So is the Pegaso worth the money, to me personally yes, I don't buy many slot car any more as I have far to many already. So when I do they must take my breath away because they are so beautifully made.

Slotcars are built to be raced - even if they are resine-models. As I'm also racing in 1/24 - there are lot's of cars only available in resine! They are raced, but they are more durable than you would expect! Depending on the body you might deslot a couple of times an hit a concrete wall or floor before the body cracks!
And don't worry about expensive 1/32 rtr-resine-slotcars - proper built 1/24-cars with metal chassis are about 100£ just material costs - if you're using a Plafit full racing and all the accessories necessary to build a nice car...
But it's fun to build and much more fun to race these cars!
The most expensive car I own and race is a rare 1968 Carrera 124 Ferrari Dino with original racing chassis and a super 16D - even after 35 years this car has no body cracks or missing parts! But don't ask the value of that car - Swiss knows how it's rated
The only problem is to get spares for the motor...

These are real slotcars! And lot's of fun to drive them! I had a Chaparral 1 from Phoenix with Sakatsu-chassis till last year, just sold to an other slotracer who has more time to race it!

just send a mail to [email protected] - he'll build a car according to your specs! But it's an expensive order... worth every £ you'll invest!
3 know now why I sold mine?

But his kits and parts are achieveable! And his Chaparall 1 is the best resine kit I ever had! Surface is so smooth - you might paint it immediately out of the box

the resine kit is 86€ - plus a driver figure 9€ plus a Sakatsu-chassis 49€ plus some small parts - you'll end up with app. 180€ for all the parts - and then fun starts...
