    I like them...

    And jokes, I have jokes...
    Hey "Bud", how about that red and white car?
    And I would have to lock up that green and white car so a "Bandit" doesn't take it.
    And maybe some new tools to work on the black car? I would need a "Good Wrench" I guess.
    And I bet I could "Wrangler" me a win with the blue and yellow car.

    I am here all day folks...
    I will take all 4 please. Bring on the Thunderbirds to run with them...

        They could be the start of an interesting series but I doubt much interest would be found outside of the US.

        I'm surprised slot car companies don't do more 80's and 90's cars to represent saloon racing in the UK and Europe. To me that would sell well. Plus kids always like playing with cars they see and recognize on the street.

          Well I could have believed you where totally right, if you would of said there is no interest outside of North America. You know, the United States, and Canada, There's a lot of interest here too.

            Jokes already done by our very own Slotbutton, or were they??

            Review of Scalextric Stock cars with jokes and yes it does make your Butt wider.

            Still very glad these are being made, and the Policar Track and Subaru, and Toyota.

              Well I always enjoyed the Cascar series over Nascar.

                The Monte Carlos have certainly created some interest here in the UK and at the Festival. Maybe the fantasy liveries are less of an issue here? I get the impression that quite a few of the new cars are going to get snapped up by racers at our club.

                The old Scalextric and SCX Nascars are popular in the UK too - a lot of clubs running (or having run) a Nascar class. The Scalextric inline Nascars have been the basis of our digital racing since 2014 with the original cars and lots of re-liveries taking to the team race grid...

                  sold off a lot of nasties a few years ago

                  most went across the pond to merry old

                  btw around here the sw was way to go

                  fastest ever owned was inline
                  2 of us build them and ended up having real races inside the regular race
                  had a very large can upgrade which required moding chassis
                  with indy grips and tweakers 3 holding it down
                  ran only on a 6 lane carrera with 30 ft main straight where it was timed twice as fast as closest standard indy, tweaker, and slotit can competition
                  front wheels would fly off
                  track owner left country for euro job so sold it with no regrets cause no where else could run it full bore
                  warned buyer it required serious power not puny set pack
                  but still remember it roared when it ran

                    So I've gotten the word that the Stock Cars even overseas have been well received and the cars look like they will sell even outside of the North American market... which is a good thing.

                      Stock car, touring cars and GT seem to having a bit of a high around the world. Moreso than prototypes and much more than formula cars....

                        well what scaly could do

                        turn back the clock
                        and
                        release more (with no physical changes) of the best open wheel racing class scaly ever sold
                        the indy dallara

                        many of mine go straight to digital
