    Audi R18 and Lola guides

    Are there any plans for Slot It to make a wood guide version (CH07) of the guide that fits in the Audi R18 and Lola LMP cars (CH73)?

    Thanks,

        Available in the States in 15 days?

        Maurizio,

        Thanks for such a quick reply. I have a modern LMP series race coming up shortly and wanted to know if this guide (CH84) will be at the US retailers in 15 days or is that when they are coming out of production?

        Thanks,
        Marty

            I have a question, if the front of the body supposed to the "floating" on the chassis and creating some sort of gap as in the picture? if not, can I get some assistance on how to eliminate it?
            its almost as if the corners of the chassis are warped or hanging?



            Also, what motor is this yellow one that is installed in these cars; It is just yellow with not markings - new model?

              The motor is SIMN09ch, not yet released as a separate part.

                I just wanted to update everyone on my chassis issues.
                I took the entire car apart and put the pod and chassis on the setup board. The chassis was a little tweaked and so was the pod. Once I when through the slot.it method for straightening chassis, everything now lines up perfectly. I am glad I did this, as I know now this car will be perfect.

                I would like to know if 132slotcars carries the doors for this car... (replacement parts)

                  Profoxcg glad to hear you're settling in with your R18. I recently raced against this car in our OVRL series and right out of the box the car ran great with Super Tires and a little weight on a King Track. It impressed me enough to know that I will add one to my collection.

                    yes i'm liking it although I have not driven it yet more than 3 laps. I wonder how this new motor compared to the Flat 6 or type R. I have good experience with those and I am considering selling this motor.

                    One of things i did was remove the chrome decals from the car and I am paining over the doors. I think tampo is the way to go with the chrome, and it can be silver. In my opinion it doesn't have to be chrome. I personally do not like chrome. I just need to some replacement doors from a "white kit"

                      Question of detail

                      The front chassis detail on the Slot.it Audi is fairly light weight, and I do not think it is a separate piece, this fine detail makes it difficult to inject completely flat, but as mentioned above it is possible to straighten.
                      Not sure if the doors will be offered as a replacement part, it seem unlikely but Maurizio is probably a better person to answer that than I.
                      So did the gap at the front dissapear once you straightened the chassis? If so can you photograph.

                            After:



                            Decals removed - ready for replacement or paint (haven't decided yet)
                            I think I am going to leave it as is for now. Looks clean. (I don't care if it not 100% true at this point, none of these cars are)

                              I mentioned in another thread that you can use Bare Metal Foil's Chrome to replace the faulty decal. It will look a ton better than paint.
