  • SCX Pro cars

    A friend that I race with turned me onto these cars a couple of weeks ago and I was very impressed by their performance. I know it's an older chassis and it has it's quirks - like the "I'm sorry, but I have to heat up first" motor, but I really thought that these were some really great-running and superior handling, non-magnet cars.

    I really enjoyed driving these cars alot - and the "kit" that they come in is pretty cool with the manual, extra motor mount and other parts and all. And they're, like, dirt cheap?!

    Heck, I've already bought two of the Audis and four of the Porsche GT3s!

    What gives? Did these not catch on, or am I just really late showing up to the party?

    SCX Pro

    SCX was developing and expanding this line before the company had financial trouble. The Pro cars were part of their line that they dropped, although some of the cars and parts are still available as old stock.

    I have used a lot of Pro parts in my scratch builds and have a Porsche, an Audi and a Nascar. I own four Nascars from three different companies and it is by far the best. With my others I have had to replace the plastic wheels with metal, and set screw gears, new screw-in guide, etc. The Pro car comes with all of these. The spare pods I have used in other cars with good success. I used the spare pod to put an NSR King in my Nascar Pro.

    Now that SCX is under new ownership, I am hoping they re-make the Pro cars and parts. I would love to see their blue Barracuda TransAm with a Pro chassis under it. I would buy a couple immediately.

      SCX Pro Series cars are the best value available in todays market IMHO.

      I've got a dozen or so and have had success in open class competition with the Audi 'Glassworks' (avatar) and their RX-4H motor. They also built an AWD Citroen that is an incredible performer. It even features a guide depth adjustment screw for the swing arm, an easy way to get the set-up dialed regardless of the slot depth. Also, the forward-back motion of the pod gives weight transfer to the rear wheels under acceleration and weighs down the front end under braking for entering the corners. The long can pod enables tuners to enjoy a vast amount of choices for motors. The bodies also are light weight which were offered years before any other European manufacturer.

      Ahead of their time (2005 intro) and far more refined than I think a lot of American slot car enthusiasts gave them credit for. There is no other manufacturer that offers as much performance+parts, like in the Pro kits.

        Yup, I see that 132Slotcar have some left, no doubt there will be other sources too, also.

          Well, I'm glad to hear that you guys seem to like them as well as I do.

          I had an absolute riot driving that Audi. Very predictable handling and relatively fast. I was fighting, dicing and holding my own with it. Just a great car. I'm hoping that the Porsches are as good as the Audis seem to be.

          Xr4ti, I have already ordered one of the Citroens on your word.

          I hope they do reintroduce these - especially with the Barracuda T/A body. That would be too cool. I'd be in for a couple of those myself.
