  • Just curious, (Revo Slot)

    Never see much on any of the, Revo Slot, cars.
    How come ?

    I bought one of the Marcos cars. Runs really well on my wood track with almost no tuning, (even with the stock, short guide).

    RevoSlot are great cars but sadly as real Stores vanish not many see them to get involved.
    As the Importer for RevoSlot we are working hard to get the word out to Clubs as this is the new market for Slotcar Racing.

    With the revival of SCI we intend to use this Site to promote the lines wr supply so more can get involved.

    At one time we distributed to 400 plus Stores but as they vanished so did exposure to new people in that area.

    Unless you experience these and other great cars how would you know to try them.

    More soon with the continual rebuilding of SCI.

    Check out our Retail Store and Racing Center.

    We are commited to growing RevoSlot and other brands we distribute and Retail.

    See you at the Races.

      I also have a Revo Marcos, the only thing I've done is glue and true the tyres, oiled the standard rears a few times (the standard tyre respond really well to oiling), coat the fronts with super glue and put a piece of duct tape on the bottom of the chassis...and its beating most of our club NSR moslers! The 21k motor is fantastic...the whole car is fantastic. It drives differently to a podded car but better in the longer fast bends. There's quite a few Revos in our club now, great great cars.

        I too recently got a Marcos, My first Revoslot. I only sanded the tires a bit and it is as fast and smooth as my NSRs and Thunderslot with no tinkering. I'm very impressed with the quality. I will probably purchase the Toyota GT1 next.

        We also have several in our club, I've heard no complaints.

          Here in the mid-Atlantic states IHSR often runs stock RevoSlots as an extra race at the end of an event. Enough people have them that we can run a good number of heats.

          I own the Toyota and run it with the optional RevoSlot soft tires. It does well. It has the same width as the Viper, which is also popular.

          The consensus is the cars are great right out of the box -- justifying their higher-than-typical price. The goodies include ball bearings all around.

          Could be RevoSlots will become one of the standard classes for IHSR events. Maybe next year.

            Alan, when you have a spare moment (hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha) don't forget to launch a new RevoSlot sub-forum on SCI.

            Meanwhile, members who want to know what these things look like should take a look, here.

              I have one of the first release Porsches, a Viper and the Ferrari 333 SP. The Porsche is very nice, the Viper and 333 just great! Straight out of the box I consider them the best running 1/32 RTR non-magnet slot cars you can buy at the moment. Take them out of the box and put them on the track: done. Glue and true the stock tyres and they are superb. Yes, you can get an NSR to beat them. But with almost zero preparation I prefer the Revoslots.

              Two thumbs up from me!

                I just recently got back into 1/32. A friend of mine has a routed wooden track with braid and suggested trying a Revo car. I picked up a Supra and make sure the wheels turned, the chassis had float and I installed the longer guide flag. After running the tires in a bit, the car ran great.

                  Is it just me, or do the RevoSlot bodies look tall?

                  I'm wondering if the RevoSlot bodies are actually to scale, and bodies on other brands are deliberately lower than scale to improve cornering.

                    I have a RevoSlot Toyota GT-One, it has a lot of ground clearance. The wheelbase is much longer than the Scaleauto version, I will have to look up the 1:1 car and figure what the dimensions should be for 1/32nd. When they first came out we raced RevoSlots at Area 51 and Shoreline Model Raceways uses them as IROC cars from time to time. They do run well out of the box on wood tracks with very minimal tuning, but they are not a match for a well tuned plastic chassis car so far.

                      Our club runs RevoSlots and we love them. I have four of them, two Porsches, a Supra and a Viper. Because of their weight we run them as a class and we're fielding about 12 cars/racers right now. Also, along the same vein I have 10 of their bigger brethren, the BRMs as well. All in all one of my favourite slot car brands out there and for the most part due to Alan and his efforts.

                        I did look up the dimensions of the Toyota GT-One and converted them to 1/32nd scale.

                          I must admit this is one of my pet peeves in the hobby. Without any factual basis, somebody says a new slot car is way out of scale. A second person repeats it without verifying. And before you know it, EVERYBODY just KNOWS (sic) the car is badly out of scale. And then in a number of cases I have done what you have done, and surprise surprise: the car isn't that badly out of scale at all!

                          And yes: I know some cars are markedly out of scale. But not as many as people would like to think. So I just wish people would do a bit of fact checking before repeating this kind of fallacy as gospel.

                          Thanks Rich: I appreciate the hard data. But unfortunately some people will likely still propagate the fallacy, happily unencumbered by any facts.

                            We have max width limits and for these cars it would be 64mm across the outside edges of the tyres, as long as that proviso is met, I'm 100% happy. For those who prefer scale realism there's CSCRA rules.

                              So there are a few around.
                              They aren't spoken of much here or other sites, and I was wondering.

                              Funny, as for the comment above about a plastic chassied cars being faster..??
                              I have Slot.it, NSR and many of the rest. Most are modified to run well on my wood track. Have to say, the Revo Slot car is as fast and handles better than most, but for my "C" motored cars. Though I do need to try some different rear tires. All equally tuned for MY track, it's pretty hard to match the Revo with a plastic chassied car. Though I do have two plastic cars that are very close, and on any given day, depending on MY driving, might actually be a "little" faster. But...two out of 35 plastic cars isn't good odds !

                              Scale wise...really, you can tell this as they are racing around your favorite track..? It's just a toy.

                              Race on...
