World peace.


Failing that, more little lovelies from SCX. Just finally had the opportunity to put the MGAs on the track. They're fabulous!!

Oh, and the Pioneer MGB.

Dang it Embs, that's more of my dosh heading to SCX Towers! For my money they're the best game in town for RTR... MGA, Citroen DS, Renault 8, Fiesta WRC, Hemi 'Cuda - nobody else attempts this stuff or else mixes up revs with quality.

I'm with you Driver#8. Love SCX cars. Great bang or buck. Good fun drives with little work needed to enjoy without the magnets.

An end to rigidly mounted front axles when coupled with non-sprung guides. More often than not they mean either the car's front wheels sit clear of the track, or the guide doesn't sit deep enough in the slot.

I've just returned from two days solid racing on a fast, long, but temporary track complete with the normal bumps that most plastic tracks suffer. All cars ran with magnets removed. The modern cars from Scalextric were utterly useless, bouncing out of the slot on almost any straight long enough for them to reach high speed. Best cars by far for avoiding straight line deslots were SCX and Ninco Pro-shock cars. Guilty manufacturers, Scalextric especially, please, please, please engineer some vertical movement into your front axles.

Mine's a bit of a Pioneer wish list


I would like;

Shelby GT500 Eleanor from the Gone in 60 seconds remake
1970 Dodge Challenger from Vanishing point, along with some other nice road going R/T colour schemes (something along the lines of the candy red and Bengal Chargers)
Some road going Camaro's and Cuda's

And to stay true to my name, from any of the other manufacturers (all in road form);

Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Aston Martin One-77
A white DBS on black wheels

Aston Martin DBS Volante
Aston Martin Cygnet... just kidding, the real thing shouldn't exist let alone a slot version

Mine's a distinctly pre-87 rally biased list. The whole list is enormous but, for 2012, how about

1. A few more Escort liveries from SCX. Let's start with
1978 RAC winning Escort (Mikkola) and while they're at it, his trusty sidekick Waldegaard

A Brookes Escort (preferably 1979 RAC , but other vintages would do)
and then, if the chaps at SCX feel the urge, they could carry on with more!

A good Opel Manta (from anyone)

I'm with Mudchukka on the TR7 (Any manufacturer will do as long as it's well done and not ridiculously expensive)

70's Opel Kadett (wouldn't this sit well in the SCX Classics range?
)

More Ferraris from Slot.it(yes i know about the Carrera-Ferrari deal but one can dream)

Fiat 131 coupe
Fiat 128 Rallye
Alfa Romeo Alfetta
Alfa Romeo Alfasud coupe
BMW 1800/2000 TISA

I think there is a happy medium between the old "suitable for banked bends" Scaleys and the cars that Dopamine mentions. A little bit to allow for bumps, but not so much that the cars resemble racing Reliant Robins

I'd like Scalextric to do a few more GP cars from 1967/68, how about Brabham Repco BT24, Honda RA273, McLaren BRM M5A or less likely Ferrari 312?
I'd like Pioneer to stop messing around with endless limited editions of cars we've already seen and get on with the cars we're all waiting for.
I'd like Scx to continue with their excellent recent range of classic rally cars, I hope and expect them to continue to surprise.
I'd like Fly to re-release the Pit Walls and Marshall's cabin.
I don't like to be too greedy, so I suppose I should leave it at that. Kindest Regards Jason
