    I vote for a white kit (only because I don't like chrome)

    There were released a small number of white kit Lolas that had rear bodywork enlarge to allow use of the 'Boxer' type motors as inline.

    To date no Audi R18s have been released with bodywork that allows inline motors.

    There will be released an inline enabled white body kit for the Audi R18:


    Slot.It have put these two out there as possible future releases but it will only happen if people show their interest....by preordering.

    [QUOTE=porsche917;699575]Its my understanding that the Slot It Audi R18 white kit will take an in-line set up but will it only work with the Flat 6 style motor? I would like to use a FC130/orange end bell motor but didn't know if it would fit. Is this the same for the Slot It Lola as well?

    My Lola white kit did fit an orange end bell motor in-line. I have not tried the Audi white kit yet but I would think it would since the Lola did

    I have to agree with your evaluation completely. It is a good looking car.

    How tough was it to remove the chromed area? What did you use to remove residual glue?

    With a bit of luck, mine will be here later this week. It's in transit at this time. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
    It wasn't hard considering it was barely on there at least on the body. The doors were pepped and painted.
    Not hard to do and went a long way.

    No only the flat six fits the car unless you cut the body. t In fact the prepainted cars only take an angle winder flat 6. There are white body kits with an enlarged area over the axle to allow room for the inline gear set.

    It looks like a Slot Car Corner block.

    NOTE: A few things to note, the motor needs to be installed at the lowest possible position in the pod otherwise it will touch the body and cause some tweak unless you run the rear screw loose.

    Great car by they way. Special thanks to Alan 132slotcar.us for doing the exchange of my previous body.

    Here is another digital chip for comparison:



    Plenty of room for whatever digital system you run. (you may have to remove the driver)
