      class 1 Mini Cooper
      class 2 Ford Escort
      class 3 Audi Quattro

      The Audi Quattro would have to be my favorite of all the cars simply because of the way it changed the concept of rally cars and rallying right up to the present day. It introduced a new era in rallying.

        Class 1 Ford Fiesta
        Class 2 Ford Escort
        Class 3 Ford Cosworth/RS200

        I guess as you can see I like the Fords. I feel that Ford has set the standard in WRC Racing till the present day in the 21st Century. I like to see how they changed/morphed into the Focus of today.

          I like the Alpine Renault, with its rounded, melon-seed shape, sleek and smooth, with interesting trim and detail. Nice styling, not to mention an excellent, great handling scale model by SCX.

          In the other classes, I'll go with the Porsches. I can barely tell one 911 from another, but I do know what a 959 is.


          • #6
            • Class 1 - Renault 8
            • Class 2 - Ford Sierra Cosworth
            • Class 3 - Toyota Celica GT4

              Class 1 Fiat Panda
              Class 2 BMW M3
              Class 3 Audi Quattro

              Who doesn't like a car called a Panda. The BMW and the M3 was written off by most competitors but proved to be a competitive rally worthy car. The Quattro is an iconic rally car that I think helped usher in a new age in rally racing.

                Small classics: Lancia Stratos (love the aggressive styling)

                Modern classics: Porscsche 911 SC (I'm a dyed in the wool 911 fan)

                4WD clssics: Porsche 959 (I remember when this car was released, it was a revolutionary design)

                If I must choose one, it's the 911 SC for me.

                  contest entry

                  1. Renault 8 - for me, this is what Rallying is all about - small, seemingly insignificant cars that you drive the snot out of and they keep asking for more.

                  2. Seat 131 Abarth. Abarth has a long and storied history as an automotive tuner. They led the way for so many innovations.

                  3. Audi Quattro. When the quattro came along, everything changed - for the better.

                  besides, they're all pretty cool looking cars!

                  - I'd have to pick the Renault as my favorite. It's what I think of when I think Rally car.

                    Lets look at some facts before we announce the winner

                    The results tell us that SCX hit the nail on the head with the release of the Renault Alpine and the Escort MKII, especially in the UK market. There seem to be a good opportunity to repeat the success by releasing a new Lancia Stratos and a Porsche 959. The Audi Quattro is also very popular but there are already 4 manufacturers making different version of it, so the 959 would be unique to SCX.

                    So.. Dave/Chuck now you know what to discuss at the next meeting in Barcelona

                      And the winner is....

                      "Mr.M" Jim Moyes from Slotforum UK.

                      I voted for;

                      1. Abarth 1000TC
                      2. Seat 1430
                      3. Ford RS200

                      Like Driver #8, the old twice yearly holidays to Sitges in Spain are the inspiration for the first two. The Seat 124s were always the taxis that took us from Barcelona airport to Sitges and back again at the time. And I will never forget the journey along the cliff top coastal road. Every bend was taken with the tyres screeching, and sometimes with enough body roll for a small boy to be able to look over the door panel and down the cliff at the wrecks that were just left there after the dotted stone guards and occasional bit of armco had failed to keep them on the road. The driver always seemed to be a rotund Spaniard with a moustache, smoking a cigar, and leaning heavily against his door. Probably at the ready to leap out if the inevitable happened. There was usually a Barcelona football pennant hanging from the mirror too, and the broken Spanglish conversation was often peppered with "aaah, Bobbeeee Charl-a-ton" if it was mentioned that I supported Man Utd.

                      Once we got to the resort, everybody and his Grandad seemed to bomb around in a 600 Seat, and we didn't see so many of those, compared to the 500, in the UK. When I went to the first Goodwood revival, I was pleased to see the Abarth versions for the first time, other than photos in books, but disappointed that they cruised around at the back. Something I try to avoid when racing my slot versions.

                      The RS 200s were the first "new" slot cars I bought when I got back into the hobby in '92.

                      The SCX Abarth 1000TC is my favourite car from any manufacturer.
                      Thanks for sharing your memories with us and congrats with the new SCX car.

                      I'll contact you by PM for shipping info.
