      elpic,
      The BMW M3 is a 1/28 XLOT model. It will be available with the fully adjustable, all metal chassis, and the new ABS chassis.

          xerxes,
          It is a good thing...
          The 1/28 scale XLOT size has been gaining attention, but not everyone is interested in the finite tuning and unlimited setup capability that's offfered by the full metal chassis. This new, braced ABS "Flex" chassis for the BMW and Lancia Stratos fits the bill by enabling you to race the larger 1/28 scale. It has the performance advantages of the belt driven XL1 sidewinder setup, and the drop arm guide that's length, height and tension adjustable. Both BMW and Lancia Stratos will be available with full metal chassis as well.

          Also, For the first time, a complete V.01 XLOT metal chassis (no motor) will be available in kit form.
          Interiors too will be available separately as well as a new XLOT XL2 motor, press on hubcaps and extra wide hubs for the Stratos. Complete "white" body kits with all interior and exterior parts for the XLOT Porsche 997, BMW M3 and Lancia Stratos will be available too.

            It's about time Ninco wakes up and give us something more on the Xlots!!

              C'mon Van, it's nothing to do with "waking up",...
              it's a different product and a corporation has to wait and see if it establishes itself, before it puts more money, tooling, advertising, packaging, etc, into the product.
              As customers, we want more of something we like... and we don't care about "business aspects"; we care about what we would like to see, and forget that our hobby is a business!
              Anyway, glad you like what's happening with XLOT.

                Looks like Ninco is more interested in the R/C market then the slot car market

                  Well, it is where much of the money is made in the hobby industry. For example, Tamiya makes a majority of its profit from R/C, allowing them to have the funds for development of new plastic kits (which, like Ninco slot cars, are a bit pricey).

                  So their main focus is R/C with the plastic kit market being more of a sideline by comparison. It may well be that Ninco is the same way or at least wants to be the same way, judging from their display area.

                    And the R/C hobbyists in Europe are probably saying, "it's about time NINCO displayed their R/C products, instead of just displaying their Slot Car stuff"!

                      Well, before Ninco totally abandons slots for RC (I'm just kidding, but I hope they're not considering it) I'd like to see them do a JGTC Mazda RX-7 and a whole bunch more classics (a DBR1 or DBR3 would be most welcome as would a whole slew of front-engined Ferraris).

                        Oh, and can we get their prices to come down from the stratosphere?

                          sacesta,
                          an RX-7 would be nice, and so would hundreds of other suggestions and personal favorites....
                          NINCO likes "Classics", and just because they don't appear in a catalog, doesn't mean there won't be any "surprise" models during the year.
                          As for Ferrari's, we'll have to rule those out.... afterall, Carrera has the Ferrari License!
                          We're all aware of the issue of price... it has been discussed time and time again, so there's no point in bringing it up again.... it is what it is!

                            That reply reeks of NINCO arrogance. AND arrogance catches up with you at some time in a business.
                            With the pittance of new NINCO slot cars coming out this year, NINCO will not be on my list of cars to buy. Maybe my 5 to 10 cars that I would have bought this year from NINCO will not make a difference to their sales figures, but if a lot more people feel like I do, NINCO sale WILL be effected and NINCO will be something of the past soon. AND that will be a sad day for the sport/hobby.
                            The European market will not carry NINCO for ever. They will have to WAKE UP and start listing to some of their other markets areas as well.
                            SLOT.IT and NSR are a good example of slot car manufactures that listens to their client base, you just have to look at their sales to see that listening to your clients is good business practice. NINCO could learn something from them

                              Van,
                              Your passion about the hobby is understandable, and I respect it, although I don't angree because your thoughts may not be correct. There are threads all over the net where the "hows and whys" of price have been discussed... and racers (hobbyists) have taken both sides of the discussion, depending on the their level of business understanding vs their requirements as a consumer. It's not NINCO being arrogant, and I don't work for NINCO; I work for MRC. I'm just being factual and stating that all facets of this topic have been picked to the bone! "for those that believe, no explanation is necessary... for those that disbelieve, no explanation will do".

                              You're right, It will be a sad day for the hobby if NINCO or any major manufacturer falls by the wayside... but don't think that NINCO doesn't listen to other markets. JGTC, Corvette, Mustang, Hummer, Ford pickups, Ford GT, Acura LMP2 are part of their listening! The new 2010 Camaro certainly didn't come from requests from Portugal or Sweden.

                              I know it may be difficult for some to understand sometimes, but you really can't compare a small company that's in the business of only making a limited number of models of high performing "race tuned" cars, to a major company who makes sets, track, cars, accessories and who caters to every part of the market, from raw beginners to passionate hobbyists. Can you really compare the Lamborghini Company to GM?

                              You mentioned "looking at the sales" from Slot.it and NSR as examples of company's that listen to their clients.... these are good companies that make good cars, but you don't know what their sales figures are or what their goals are. You know what you perceive about them, but that's all. Do they announce the release of between 3 and 6 cars a month, year after year, and bring out totally new models year after year as the major manufacturers do?

                              Slot.it and NSR are in business to cater to a specific part of the market and they do that job very well! But they don't have to deal with the needs of children, and casual users and making a variety of race sets for Slot.it and NSR customers to run their cars on.

                              NINCO is doing quite well, because their product line is good. I think I can say (because It's my business to know a little of what's happening around the country) that overall 1/32 sales in the hobby have suffered somewhat due to the economy. But that's the same with "hobby grade" R/C products too. You may or may not like or appreciate them, or care for their prices, but NINCO "Lightning" versions, "Classics" (like the new Porsche 356) and NINCO 1 cars sell out very quickly... and I'm talking about the USA... so maybe NINCO is listening to their clients!

                              Van, It's my opinion (although I am priveleged to have more information than most), and you don't have to agree with it, (but I hope you'll respect it, as I respect yours).
