  • Presenting The 50505 Acura LMP "Patron"

    Gentlemen,
    I have the pleasure of showing you the new Acura LMP, the car that will be raced in the NINCO World Cup at the Silverstone F1 track in England. I have been running and testing it "stock".... Awesome is the only word that describes the looks and most importantly the performance!!!
    I've put these images in the SCI NINCO Gallery.... enjoy!!






















    NC-5, 17" wheels, Laprene tires, 53.5mm axle, square, flat chassis, - 92mm (3.62") wheelbase, - 62.75mm (2.47") chassis width, - 143.9mm (5.66") overall length, - 64.5mm (2.54") total (axle/tire) width - Magnet Marshal reads 83g car weight... 247g when reading downforce.


    Race The Red Triangle!

          Very Cool. Hope their are no problems with the Alcohol brand on the cars. I supposed if you don't call it a childs toy in some countries it will be OK. Good-looking vehicle. I thinks it time for new/different tooling for standard wheels, though. But who can see them when the car is moving, eh?

              I've read several references across the world-wide web that this livery is the fastest NINCO car ever produced. Can you explain why?

              Thanks,

                inline NC6...unless there's an NC9 in there.
                as suggested some time ago it is the 'cup' car.
                better start 'testing' your inline setups.....should make for an exciting package with the NC6
                and if it's not just the new tires please, please do explain why it's the fastest 'livery' ninco has ever produced

                  Mark, beejay,
                  I've added the "innards" to my original post
                  monqui, it comes with an NC-5, not an NC-6!!
                  NINCO has tested this car against other NINCO stock models and NINCO says it's the fastest car they've ever produced! My limited time with the car has shown this to be true. That big, rectangular, flat chassis and Laprene tires and the cars aerodynamics may have a lot to do with it. Aside from the "twin humps" above the drivers head, this baby sits low down!

                    Well, so much for the superiority of anglewinders, Pro Race kits, and NC6's!

                    This Acura could be the basis for a competitive RAA'09 car. Glad to see it has arrived.

                    Slot car aerodynamics were discussed here:

                      Thats a fantastic looking car..

                      Where can a mere mortal like me get one of those?

                      I would love to add one on my Honda/Acura collection.

                      I hope to hear from you.

                      Cheers,
                      Jaak

                          Also...

                          Bob,
                          Will it take lights and a Dig chip?

                            Hmm, and again Ninco missed out on the chance to bring a racing chassis with separate motor pod ...

                            Fastest Ninco maybe, but how fast will it be compared with the Spirit Racings, Avant Slot's, Sloters (Zytec), SCX Pro's etc. All brands that use a chassis with motorpod. I am afraid that it will not be very competative in thsi field ...

                              I think it's time for you to look at the wheels on the 1:1 car, Maltese:





                              I'm happy to see another LMP car from NINCO.
