  • New Cars

    I did not buy any new cars last year, so this year I went crazy and bought two new cars. The first is Thunder Slot Lola T70 Mk III. I checked a 1:1 database for the Lola and converted the dimensions to 1/32nd scale, it appears that the Lola is very close to scale, however the tire diameters look a little small. I changed the rear tires to silicone ones and loosened up the body screws, for the class that I intend to run the car in the motor pod must stay locked down. I did adjust the front axle height to get the front tires on the track.







    The second car is a RevoSlot Toyota GT-One. We race without traction magnets and one of my club's members has four Porsches that we use for IROC style racing, so I was somewhat familiar with RevoSlot cars.







    This car also got silicone rear tires, I loosened both the motor pod and body screws. I have no database that includes the dimensions for the 1:1 car and I was too lazy to do any research, but this car is longer than the Scale Auto version. The car is heavy at 102.9g VS 79.6g for the Scale Auto version. The car has a great deal of track clearance, but the metal chassis puts plenty of mass down low compared to a typical car with a plastic chassis. The Porsche cars can tip at the limit.

        I have one also. Nice cars.
        But scale wise, the top...does appear to be "chopped" somewhat. Without actually measuring anything, just looking at pictures of the real car and these, the belt line "up", vs. the belt line "down" looks a lot different, 1 to 1 vs the Thunder Slot cars. The 1 to 1 cars have a lot more window / cab height

          I have seen the 1:1 cars in person a number of times, I already checked the length, width and wheelbase and those were to scale. I will check the height when I get a chance.



          The front tire diameter looks a little too small.

            According to my database the Lola is 38 inches high, that is 1.188 inches to scale. I measure the Thunderslot car at 1.180 inches, as we used to say in the Army "Close enough for government work.".

              Funny, I've also got photos of a yellow Lola coupe., I'll go search for it, check the number, see if it's the same car.

              Rich, "overall", height doesn't mean much for the "tops" height dimensions.

              In reality, I really don't care like many here do. As long as the body is cleanly done, if it's a little low, wide, stickers and decals in the wrong place, again, I don't care. I was just making an observation to the comment above mine, and the look of the body.
              There's no..."oh my God, that bolt head is outta place"...you won't find me saying any of that.

              P.s. - Nope, the yellow Lola that I have shots of is, #55, white-red-white stripe front to rear. Nicely restored.

                I only had pics of the topless versions of the Thunderslot inspirations. .... but by golly, you could near step over some of them without tweaking you groin muscles.

                Dinner for two at the Ritz with WetCoast if you can guess who the white haired guy is driving around

                    Top of the class sir Bov, ready carefully, it's Paul's shout....
                    The Downs would be the #1 place to get up close and personal with cars and legends.
                    Amon was there that year as well, out from hiding on his deer farm.

                    Was looking at some early GP cars, and a voice come from half underneath one, hey can you pass me the big spanner with..... ended up being tool man
                    Was leaving the pits with a mate and a guy is sitting in a Lotus with no support crew around him - "hey can you give me a push" .....
                    we started two cars before we made a hasty exit, as we thought we might get a full time job among all the amateur drivers

                    Also the year that "Custaxie" was reborn
                    And the obligatory swarm of nearly 50 F5000s making "land thunder"
